I caught the bug

    I caught the bug

    My husband is currently doing an ESB Boba, and a custom mando, so it figures that with those projects, that the "Mandalorian Fever" was sure to break out in my house. It did, and so what's a girl to do with herself then, you may ask? Why join TDH, and start doing stuff like this:



    and then I decided that I wanna play too!!! This is what I came up with. What do you all think?

    Well, this did not happen overnight..... It took me about 5 years of kicking and screaming (well, actually ignoring his overtly pleading ideas..) in order to get this far.

    I fell in love with the "Mandalorian Wedding" pic and wanted to be HER....she is so cool. Then I decided that I really, didn't want yellow, so I made it green. What prompted that decision was 3 different stores and 2 hours staring at the spray can colors and not finding ANYTHING in yellow that I liked. I also was adamant that it have a ponytail. with beads. and girlie things. oh yeah, and I'm trying to get the fem fett armor. I wanna be a girly-girl with a RBFG... (he's created a monster.... and he doesnt even know it!!)

    Welcome to TDH.

    The banner looks great and so do the concept drawings.

    Beware though. This bug can get expensive..
    Even for us custom Mandos.

    But it's fun too.

    Welcome!
    If you build that helmet, it'll be the most expensive ponytail holder in history.

    I love that banner too! That rocks.

    Yes, all I have to do is find a helmet that won't break the bank. I do love that ponytail though.... It makes it all girlie and stuff..

    TY on the banner!

    Awesome!

    PONYTAIL = HOT!
    That's a great idea for a custom lady Mando. Really a great idea, and I love it! (Gives Boba something to hold on to, eh?)

    LOVE THAT BANNER!

    I would love to have one of those, to carry/post up at events.
    NICE WORK!

    hey, since you're getting into it yourself now, i guess there will be no more cursing my name for getting him started on this path now!

    Thank you guys so much for the kind words and the encouragement. I'm progressing nicely, I've gotten my helmet (a dp 95 that my hubby says I'm doing "terrible" things to...). My knees and gauntlets are in various stages of painting, and all my soft pieces are done. I'm waiting for the rest of my armor to come in, and then I'll have pictures.

    I'll let you know when I have pics to show!
