You can probably put armor over them, but the surface doesn't look flat so that would make it difficult. Depending on what material the blue/white areas are made out of, you might be able to just paint them. They are sweet looking gloves.

I think the blue is leather or some sort of plastic? I'm going to get them and paint them cuz I think thye r amazing! lol

Hi all, so i'm trying to start my armor and found WOF templates. But I don't have access to a printer and when I went somewhere to print them, the templates were waaaaaay too big. Any suggestions?
Jul 17, 2012, 9:12 PM - Re: First Mando
Sounds good about the gloves!
The templates should have different size downloads, like BobaFettSmall, or something. I did the smallest and had to modify them a little bit to fit me. You could also make a duct tap mannequin of your torso and make templates from that.
Can you show me where you got the templates?

Suhweet! How are you going to shape the armour?

haven't been on here for a bit, thought I'd share some half updates... Started a pattern for my flak vest and came up with an interesting custom belt design that I shall share with you all once I have it drawn up a bit better hoping to have the flak vest done this week and possibly repaint my gloves that should be arriving soon.
And there's my update. Not much done quite yet but getting there

LoL! You could try dishing with a ball pin hammer (or whatever they are called) and then planishing. Research dishing.

flak vest pattern is done, used the one Darth Mule pulled together but I'm not entirely sure how to line the pattern up for sewing, nothing lines up right... did I just do it wrong?? So confused
Jul 27, 2012, 10:23 AM - Re: First Mando
Armor pieces (most of them) are cut out and ready for shaping, pics soon

I dunno anything about Darth Mule, sorry. Find someone you know who can sew to help you. My mom helped me a ton. Armor designs look sweet. Are you going to put any knee plates on?
Jul 29, 2012, 8:25 AM - Re: First Mando
definitely got knee plates, I just never drew them in the last pic because I was so focused on the belt lol As for the vest, I just decided to have someone make it for me... I would probably ended up spending more if I attempted to do it myself

Wow, I've been doing some research for weapons and came across this thread. It seemed like it was moving along great, and then no updates. Jangoismyfav- if you still read these forums, I'd love to see an update....
