    Well since you are second guessing flesh options, here are a few fully clad concepts you can play w/ or borrow from. I had fun scribbling them out. Hopefully they will help inspire your own ideas.

    I just wanna know what kinda gun/blaster I sholud be looking outfor...
    Something long, with a big scope oh and may be a small bi-pod mounted somewhere on the barrel.

    i know what you mean about the cold weather around Norwich but seriously though, the flesh thing would be so cool (pardon the pun) if you could work it into the design.

    I like those pictures, v nice...I should ahve kept on with my textiles from GCSE...then I could draw proper models like them!! The one on the left's rifle looks class!! the middle ones leg armour is good. I hadnt though about cod-armour before....I thought it might look a bit strange for females, but just changing the shape really makes it fit in alot more...

    Im gunna have a waist 'cape' like in your fist image, again make is more female. But thanks for putting up those pictures...they are a real help!!

    You can draw models like them! Just cheat like I did. I just swiped a blank figure sketch online and roughed in some details over it.

    i never did do any designs with a collar piece...they annoy me so much....so I just left it out, Ididnt think anyone would notice....
    I like the amrour design/placement best in the black and gold...so I will try that with the green, blue and black colouring

    The black and gold design is really nice. All you need to do is make some of the gold parts 2-tone (mainly on the helmet) and you've got it. Do you intend for the gold to be metallic or more of a golden yellow?

    I do like the black and yellow....Im prob gunna ask my fanclud what they think cos they will be the ones im trooping with.
    I was gunna do it metalic if I could use two different golds like the examples below though i might use a more bronzy gold rather then the very yellow gold...but then I could use gold with yellow/gold...I think I would have to do some paint matching as crayons dont really do metallics well.

    I definetly like the black and gold. Though if your a fan of the Seattle Seahawks, you should go with the blue and green one

    Your picks for gold colors should work well either way. As long as the yellow gold is only the accent color (and you seem to put it that way), you can't go wrong. Otherwise I think it could become a bit too gaudy. A bronzy gold could probably work either as an accent or as the main color w/out being too much. I think you are definitely on the right track. Keep the updates coming. By the way, stop me at any time if I am offering too much opinion.

    Looks good. I'd consider adding some leg armor just to bring your colors down more to the lower body. Also, you may want to throw in a few splashes of other colors to break it up a bit. That could just be small add-on details though.

    Glad I could help. Tough decision, but either project sounds good to me. I will admit that I'd love to see this custom costume come together.

    Re: Custome mando Idea

    To me, the gold version looks too "comic-style Batman". I really like that black, blue, and green version you did though. That one's sweet!

    I like Unicorn's black and gold, but agree that there needs to be some color breakup on it. Definitely an awesome scheme though.

    Zoe, if you coul dpull this one off for CE then i would definately go for it. This costume would just look so cool.

    BTW i love the heels idea (would you be able to walk around all day in those though?)

    Gold, black and grey looks really nice as well.
    Have you seen Rose's thread on this ? http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=18079

    just a few extra ideas for the fem-mando theme.

    I would love to do both...but I am going through major cash flow probs at the mo as I practically have no job so it could end up that I cant do either If I can though I will try and do both.
    I have just got my new TK 409 vest for boba (all baught before I was told that there wes next to no job for me)
    Roses mando reminds me of a mando Stifler's Mom!!
    I dont think I would have high heels as then I would look like a giant!! mb some 1 or 2 inch heels...and prob tot stilettos though....too wibbly
    I am prob going to club ngiht this friday if I can get to marks, im going to ask peoples opinion there to see what they think.

    Thanks for everyones inputs though it really helps....just need to decide on the colour scheme!!

    if i were you, i'd concentrate one just one of the Fett costumes and your custom mando would turn more heads than a Boba anyday. As for the budget issue, my orginal version was built on a shoe string by making the armour from an old wheelie bin and things like that. May be you could use bits of your existing costume for your custom ( i am sure that holster would look wicked on your fem mando).

    i think 1 or 2" heels would do the trick high heels always remind of death traps

    i don't think i can make the meeting on Friday night as i have to pick my daughter up from her mums - soz
