    I'd say an off grey would be better suited to the purple white combo Can, but hey, it's your armour.

    Yeah, probably. I'll draw a quick picture with my handy-dandy tablet.

    Pics!

    The two fabrics I was talking about before.

    All the random belts and buckles I found.

    A close up of one of the "belts" I made with a cute little buc'ye on it a long time ago.

    Actually a waterbottle holder on a bike that I could maybe turn into a gaunt. I found it in my garage while putting on the third primer coat of my armor.


    Those are all bike helmet cushion thingys. They'll come in handy for my own buc'ye.

    Okay, here's the original:


    And here's the Black vs. Grey capes:


    I think that the black cape, grey jumpsuit, and black vest are kind of hard to tell apart. Though, it's nearly the same for the grey cape/kama. Maybe I should just stick to the white cape. Or kama...

    If you're going grey vs white then you have the choice of white jumpsuit grey cloak/kama or the other way around.

    Personally I'd make the shoulder bells white rather than black, but it's your choice, I just like the purple white and grey look.

    The other question is, are you going for the exposed midrift look, or the traditional suit?

    And finally, darn(!?) woman! You're a worse hoarder of nic nacks than me

    I'll to play around with variations of the greys and whites and blacks then come back with more of my cheesy little drawings.

    LOL exsopsed midrif? Tempting but I must decline. I'd prefer to not have my stomach freezing cold in the winter.

    I am THE pack rat. I've got sooooo much stuff.

    Exposed midrift is definitely a mans fantasy, but I would also say no, because you want you costume to have a real quality. Why leave an opening for your enemies, even if it does look really sexy. You have many good ideas to work with!

    We just had one of our Mercs mandos do a vid tutorial on using a torch to bend trash can armor easily, so you can always go that route as long as you stay safe.
    Yep, that was me. Shaping armor is always the most dangerous part because you are dealing with hot plastic no matter which method you go with and it definitely doesn't mix well with bare skin. So, caution is always advised. But, you can use a blowtorch like I did. It's a good idea to try it out on scrap, the same way you tested the boiling water method.

    This is a great start by the way. I like the purple colors!

    Ouch, painful stories! Luckly I didn't get burned by the water. My trusty cow oven mit saved my hands and arms though I was cooking quesadillas the other nite and little droplets of oil kept hitting my arms and kinda hurt. I burnt two and under cooked two and then the last one was pefect (the queasadillas not my arms ). LoL I can't cook anything but mac and cheese and beskar'gam.

    The secret to a good Quesadilla is to butter (YES BUTTER NOT MARGERINE) one side, toss it on the hot pan, drop the heat, put on the cheese, and wait for it to melt, then fold, flip and eat mmmmm...

    OKAY! I did something at least:

    The suit was...interesting. But I like the white cod and belly combined. The cape, however I think looked coolest white.

    I'd like any input It really does help to get some non-CAN views.

    I like the white and purple, though I would strongly suggest picking a third colour and sticking to it though.

    Unless of course you want a cobbled together sort of look

    Yay, purple! It would look nice with some blue too, like combining your original blue and white with the purple.

    yup, white purple and black look good together, and the grey cape jumpsuit look good in your drawing, I say go for it... it's gonna be an ever changing beast until you "finish it" and start on a second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth...............................
