    Sep 26, 2006, 12:34 AM - Jaster Mereel - Work in Progress #1

    Okay, here are the WIP pics of my Jaster costume. My vest came in today so I'll be "fit to fight" in a week or so at the latest. As you can tell, I'm trying to be as faithful to the Open Seasons comic as I possibly can.

    This armor looks fantastic in person...I got to try on the belt!
    The shoulders are an amazing metallic red and the gauntlets look great.
    Can't wait to see the finished product!

    It's a french army ammo belt. You don't see it in the pics but it comes with 3 of the large double pouches (one was removed here) and a double set of pistol mag pouches on each side. I found mine for $50 CDN at an Army Surplus store.

    I drew them in AutoCAD and then added the colors. Cool emblem overall I think.

    $50? wow, i paid $10 for mine, though it didn't have the pistol mag pouches.

    Thanks a lot. I scratch built the holsters and harness myself. Molding the leather was far easier than I would have thought. Thank God for Tandy leather. My days of cutting up 2nd hand store leather jackets are over. hehehehe

    Like I just posted (literally ) at Mando'Ade, that looks great! Everything pretty much looks spot on to the comic! Can't wait to see this all done!

    Looks very nice, what did you use for the gauntlets? Are you also making the pistol from #1 of Open Seasons?

    I scratch built the gauntlets out of sintra. The "flamethrowers" are just some conduit, a 1" coupling and the back part is a valve thing for a sprinkler system.

    I'll have to get more pics up soon. She's almost done.

    Sweeeet! You're actually putting money, time, and effort into your costume. I'm so sick of seeing Jango Fetts painted in different schemes...

    Hmm, looks very good. I like it a lot, it'll be nice to see it when you get it all mounted on a vest. The emblem I had seen previous (well, as used by the old Jaster Mereel) is this one:

    I'd have to say looking at this (the best) picture from OS, Jodo's emblem is pretty darn close. The nose part could be a bit thinner, but overall very close.

    I think he means my version that I drew up.

    Besides, Jodo Kast IS Jaster Mereel.
