Another project! I know I know! Finish your first one, don't move onto your third and fourth one! Well, guess what? I've got sintra, and I'm not afraid to use it!
I started out about two weeks ago by grabbing some of my old templates which were never finished, started doing a few things with them, and then found that I'd essentialy made a Cade Skywalker-esq. template. I then decided from then, that I would at least do the chest peices correctly, even if it meant not putting together the entire thing, Vader shins,etc. It would be something easy to wear, and would still be great for manning booths,etc. at Cons.
Aside from the Cade peices, I also did a few other templates for a couple diffrent other costumes I've got in mind, so that I can make the most of my peices, enspecialy the soft parts. I plan to grab a Fett/Mando backplate this time around for both Cade, and my TEOD Kast. I'm not going to mess around with the gigantic peice of sintra. Here's my refrence pics. and templates as of now. I need some bigger peices of paper to complete the tops of each chest peice "bra strap". I also need to make my slant of the chest peices more rounder, and the bottom sides more wider, but I'll take care of that, and the straps later when I can have some gigantic paper that accomodates such things. -

I don't know about the belt yet, but I'm for certain that I'll be buying 2 sets of leather Mauser pouches here fairly soon, as they're a near exact match. -
Ideas, and constructive criticism is always appreciated.
