    That's good ner vod, It's one of my favorite scriptures. BTW... Ordeyn it's looking good, but my next question is how are you going to do your gauntlets?

    I'm always happy to hear any such news.

    Onto armor...I took pictures! All of the red stuffs are mock ups since I have no pattern that fits me. So it will be very custom--but I'm doing my best to adhere to the regular vest look.
    Bells

    Back

    Front


    Here is the actual fabric:

    Against the jumpsuit



    And kal'ika, I don't know about gauntlets yet, but I was hyper tonight and made a sad lil gaunt:






    There ya go! And nothing yet on the buy'ce. Haven't bought cardboard and I don't know how much more I can get done on my armor til August cos I'll be gone for most of the summer.

    OK, that is NOT a sad lil gaunt... I like it! I'd do a little finishing work add some hoses and paint that sucker! But that's just me. Kandosii Ord'ika!

    Looks great so far! Can't wait to see the finished product! My little sister, who is 13, looked over my shoulder and said to me "why on earth is a guy painting their armor purple?" So I told her that you were a girl and she replied "Cool! So girls make armor too? I want a pair!". We'll see where that goes.... Good luck with the vest! =)

    Haha, I love your sister now! You should make her some beskar'gam!

    And I made another gaunt for the heck of it and I painted them both silver for the heck of it. They're very shiny.

    Things are going well with the vest too! My pattern is basically complete thanks to my Mama.

    Cool, glad to hear progress is being made.
    I forgot that my sister in law can sew pretty good, so I asked her if she would sew the INDUSTRIAL Velcro onto my vests, she said why not, so I hope to have my armor on my vests soon.

    You got any pics of the purple yet? I really wanna see it.

    I plan on working on my gauntlets soon.

    Purple...? I posted some pics of the armor from my phone, but I can take some nice ones with a real camera.

    I just painted them silver as the base. I'm going to paint them purple after masking. They will look kinda dorky but I wanna finnish them. I'm stubborn like that.

    It depends on who the vest is for. Cos I am pretty small. (I did NOT call you fat, I promise!) But yeah, no problem. Will pics do or do you need templates in a...PDF? is that what it is?

    PICS!!!! (And a shebs load off them)






    I'm thinking about make shoulder bell holders but for the shins cos they REFUSE to stay shaped...grrr. So I'll hold them in place be shear force. (This is where the spray painting fabrics comes in--see next set of pics)

    This is an experiment I had with spray painting the red material. It worked well.
    Down below are the gauntlets no duh.

    These are my patterns. Yes, that's Mickey Mouse.

    Oh, and the second gaunt I hot glued together instead of taped. And once I get more glue then I'll go back and do it to the other one.

    That looks sweet!! Gauntlets look really nice, the silver paint adds to them. Idk about color but sont use the same color on your kama as you do gauntlets because you want the gauntlets to stick out, just because those gauntlets deserve to stick out! Keep it up!

    Thanks vode! I appreciate it. The sewing started a couple of days ago and its almost done. I've been having my buir'ika(Mama) helping me out, so not much longer before pictures of all that!

    If I did paint em they'd be purple. My kama is black so if I did paint em they'd still stand out a bit.
