    Custom Mando Helmet, give me feedback!

    Hey guys, I finished this thing when I went home for winter break but I just now got the pics. Its a cheap Rubies Jango that I changed up a bit. All I used was different colors of spray paint, but I think it turned out pretty well. I finished it in 3 hours or so, it was just a fun project, not really meant for costuming or anything. Regardless, I'd love to hear how I could improve it in any way. All I have left to do is swap out the T visor......Lets hear your opinions! Thanks

    I love it, the blood spatter adds a touch of realism to it.

    The onyl way I could do something this good would be by accident.

    I wish I could say there was a set of armor to go with it....I tossed around the idea but I havent gotten to it yet. I make do something before Halloween though. Whats a good set of cheap armor I could get that would still look decent. Im talking just for Halloween or something, not to show off at a con.

    Use a trash can. You still have a while before Halloween to make it look good.

    Yep I agree with everyone.. its a nice looking bucket. The blood idea is cool. If you want some realistic looking blood try using Tamiya red.

    Haha its not real blood man.....I considered that option and thought the same thing, it would turn brown after a while. Its just red spray paint that I sprayed onto my hands then flicked onto the helmet.

    Cool helmet! Love the blood and weathering job on it, great work

    Shuby's is a great palce, and I've considered buying my own armor from him. A friends over at CT.N sent me some pics of his armor that he got from Shuby, and it's absolutly fantastic!

    Schubys armor is a little bad for the price but i highly recommend using a trash can. I went to buy armor off of fett props, for $180 usd and he sent me schubys. here is a like to my thread, theres pics

    The neck piece will be very small and not bent right, the back will be small. the shoulders are not the right shape or size, and the cod is way too small for an adult! WOF templates are the best! i have made a few suits of armor using them.

    It really looks pretty good. Alot better than my first attempt on a Rubies. I just tried and paint it and didn't even bother to try and do any weathering on my first try. I always thought that the red-oxide primer looks like dried blood. That's if every critter in the universe has the same colored blood however...
