    Oct 25, 2004, 11:49 PM - Jumpsuit weathering #1

    I am working on my custom Mando(actually custom Boba). I am going to start with a black jumpsuit and weather it to make it look something like Boba's ESB jumpsuit. I've come up with 4 things I can do:
    1: slide around on dry lawn for grass stains
    2: slide around in wet grass and mud
    3: dip in algey and scum filled pond in our yard
    4: slide around in snow
    With washing inbetween each weathering.

    Anyone got anymore?

    I did the basement floor trick as well.
    Go over near your furnace and roll it around the floor till you get the desired level of use/wear.

    I've got red, but just the gauntlets, cape, knees, and shoulders. The rest is a really cool weathered green, and the visor area of the bucket will be yellow. I've also got a few other weathered yellow accents in there. My jet pack is silver, grey, orange, and red; however, I am considering changing in to match ESB JP. My vest will be black.
    I'm going to instal a retractable dog leash in the left gaunt(wrong one, I know), and electric retracting Predator style blades on the right.
