    Are you doing your own helmet as well?
    Because the way you have it drawn looks femine. I like it. Its still mando but has that slightly different,i want to say softer but thats not the word. Just a female look to it.
    Make sense?

    Nope, just going to go with my Rubies Jango for now, I might makes my own in the future, it might be cool to produce lady/kid sized bucket some time in the future.


    Speaking of, I thought this was too cute, my 3 year old nephew who's visiting found it lying around, haha.


    Boots aquired! I'll be removing the gold buckle of course.


    And the side pouches!

    I know you've decided to ditch the jet pack. I was thinking since your gloves are bit more detailed than other mandos, maybe they could be considered magnetizable when needed. For scaling the hauls of enemy ships or buildings. An upside down vertical attack would look cool. Just in theory

    I'd say go with crushgauntlets. They're coming back into style since Karen wrote Goran Bevin as having one in Revelation. Nothing like a woman who can crush a throat at will.

    I like the idea of magnetism though, thanks!

    I now have my sandpaper back so I'll be touching up the armor and hopefully painting them with in the week.

    ...Thighs? Of steel? Like Xenia from Goldeneye, haha.

    Can't wait to see the boots once you've put spikes on them. And the painted armor of course.

    While I was going to say thighs of steel I'd thought I'd keep the tone down a little. Haha, though the phrase seems almost too.. appropriate for a female mando.

    So I got my cropped flight suit in today, I think I was a little mislead by the measurements given though:


    Yes I have much tailoring to do. Yes my backyard is full of dandelions, dirt and giant satellite dishes.

    I'm running to get paint today for the armor and helmet.

    I take it you are going to attach long sleeves underneath the short sleeves, yeah?
    Did you happen to finish your good camera or are you still using your old Kodak one, and will you have pics of your paint progress up tonight?

    Ya, I'd say thats a touch big on you. =D

    Suggestion for the seamstress:

    Get the legs tapered down to hug your ankle. looks better and feels much more sleek. Also, have them put a zipper on the inside of the lower leg that runs from half way up your calf down to the bottom of the leg. This will help GREATLY getting your boots on and the shin armor on. Tell them you want to be able to hide the zippers, and they should know what to do.

    This is where I've had a hard time with the female set I've been working on. It's darn near impossible for find anything in a flightsuit that accents the female figure. She and I both hit ebay and several other online stores till we found something that worked well, then she had it tailored down to fit more snug.

    They said it was an extra small, yeah right!
    I'm going to get brown leggings and spandex undershirt to extend it. I'm self tailoring it, going to taper it to fit, chop in half into perhaps a two piece and ad elastic to the waist to keep it smexy.
    And yeah, I have my good camera back, hope to start working on the paint tonight.

    Hey hey, I'm getting there! I'm just not rushing.

    I'm taking off for the weekend to Denver tonight, but should have Sunday and onward open to work on it. I also have the coveralls/flight suit pinned off to better fit the female figure, all I need to do is sew.
    But, I'm in need of a visor for my helmet, thinking of just ordering from t-visor.com, since my local home depot was lacking there of, of face shields.
    Also, check out the cargo hold, I'm selling an original piece of art, to fund said T-Visor.

    Spent the afternoon painting! Not quite done as the green details are missing, but I got a good chunk finished.


    Shins and unglued knees.


    Chest, belly and shoulders.
