    Hydra,

    Your concept art is BADASS. :thumbup I just hope everything comes together and you get it built. I'll be waiting for the pics of you wearing it.

    Hydra,

    That's a mean looking Fem'Mando, looking at your drawing style , reminds me of sombody here in Holland.
    I might be mistaken, but I can't seem to help seeing a bit of Lara Croft in the concept. I mean that as a compliment.

    I like the idea of a Mandolorian Pet aswell, I guess I have seen Pictures somewhere of Boba fett walking around with a Corellian Slice hound, anyway im really into the Pet thing.

    The Armor looks very tricky to make, wish you much of luck with that, the boots are very mean looking also,with the row of spikes ontop of the boots.

    I should keep the color scheme, very Original in my opinion.

    Anyhow very much of luck, with your project

    For the chest mold. If you have someone you don't mind seeing you naked, look up "duct tape dummy". It's a real cheap way to make a mold of your body similiar to the plaster cast.

    Ahaha I've already went through that pain last year: and lets just say that ductape generally doesn't conform to one's body "perfectly".
    Thanks anyways for the suggestion.

    Awesome concept. Impressive color scheme and layout of the gear looks great. Look forward to seeing the final kit.

    Hydra, this concept is looking awesome. I agree with you, you shuld use the Rubies Jango. It will need some modification to look nicer, but since you're not doing either a Jango or a Boba, accuracy is only what looks good in your mind. While you're modifying, I'd also extend the ridge over the top of the helmet with a couple thin sintra sheets layered, and modelling putty. I think that'd look good with your colour scheme, the way the white stripe goes over the top. Perhaps some extra gadgets would look cool too, to make it look less like a modified rubies jango bucket.

    I also really like your fusion of leather straps with the armour pieces, and the extended cape. Perhaps like some others have said, the shoulder/collar part would look good if it was rigid, perhaps covering a rigid shoulder/collar piece with the cape cloth.

    This is such an awesome design, I can't wait to see some progress pics, let alone the finished item.

    Good luck,

    Adam

    Yeah, I remember using trash-bags/ duct and masking tape to make a manequin of myself to wear some armor for a school project one time. Yeah, its a bitch to get out of. anyway, thanks for the help, i've been trying to figure out a low-cost way of making femmando chest armor since my girlfriend said she'd be interseted in playing a mando.

    Anyway, thanks for the help, i'm off to go mod some gauntlets.

    Simply beautiful imaginative work!! I love the concept and the design details! I will be watching this thread to see how it all comes together.

    I recently was reading about using plastic wrap instead of duct tape to create a body block. It looked a lot better than the old duct tape method. Just remember to have the AC running.

    Vac forming or fiberglassing are definitely the best methods for this type of armor.

    Damn Cool! Thanks for sharing.

    WOW! Very impressive and very Original!

    If TDH members get together to do a Mandalorian Wars Movie/Fanfilm this should definitely be included!

    I also look forward to seeing this completed...WOW!

    I totally think this picture needs to be bigger.

    And the rest of the set

    Yea I have to agree with cal if you can afford it and he would do it that MS helmet would be perfect.


    Also I agree with seeker, I think we need the original sized picture. I can't see how that taping stuff works your pic is too small @_@;

    Jeez guys, I'm much too shy to show the full sized skin-tight picture. BUT. Here's the exact same guide I used to create mine and it worked incredibly well for under $25.

    Ah, a rised ridge like those on a clone? I think it's an awesome idea, I'd really like to sketch out a few helmet variations, thanks for the support!

    We should really look into something like that! I'd love to be included in one, not to mention just see a mandalorian based film out there somewhere.

    As for the Mandalorian film... if any of you guys ever start to do one, let me in on it. I have a few ideas for storylines (which include my character, obviously)

    Simply I'm fond of color schemes where drab colors like gray/brown/black are accented with neon or brightly hued shades. Neon green happens to be one of my favorites, so I figured it just looked good. (Orange was my first choice but there's already a few mandos out there who use it.)
