First Post - woohoo !
Been hanging around those forums for quite a while before registering... reading and looking at pics trying to get an idea or be inspired
Looks like I found something to inspire me to get a custom mandalorian project on the way.
Been in costuming for a little while now... but has mostly been active in the video game/anime scene (those who know cosplay.com might recognize the nickname)... and I stumbled here looking for information on making armor - for some other project I had at the time (Odin from the PS2 Odin Sphere video game). But now, since it's done... now I'm looking at putting together my own version of a Mandalorian warrior.
Planning to scratchbuilt the whole thing (since it's a unique design) out of... craft foam It's not a medium the people here are using very often (haven't seen it used once). I've done some miracle work with craft foam and I think it could apply to the mandalorian armor as well. We'll see
Right now - I'm in the planning stages and doing sketches to figure out how the armor is going to look like and what will be color scheme.
All I have to show is the color scheme for now:
What do you guys think ???
As soon as I find a way to scan my design - might have to reproduce it by hand in photoshot or something... I'll post it here... and some progress pic on the bucket (since it's what I'm going to start working on first) are going to follow pretty soon afterward
