    mandalorian protector

    I am re-doing my entire kit, I have learned a lot since working on my first kit. These pics are where my kit stands as of now, critiques welcome.



















    I am going for the look in the last pic, where the guys look pretty much like boba, but not 100 % the same. I'll get more pics up as I progress with this, Thanks for looking!

    I need a pair of gloves that actually fit me and I'm starting to think maybe I could pull off a making pair by hand... My mom is pretty skilled with the sewing machine so she could help me. Your gloves look great.

    Re: mandalorian protector

    find a pair of cheap leather gloves that fit you well (the stretchy stuff won' t work) and with an exacto knife cut out the stitches in them and remove the thread. when you have them taken apart, use the pieces of material for your templates.I am going to add a strip of velcro at the center of my wrist that extends maybe 1 1/2" toward my palm to aid with putting them on.I wish I had a sewing machine, I am hand sewing all my stuff. Good luck

    Very, very nice, vod. The layering on your paint job is sharp. The guant is awesome!
