Mandalorian wedding ???

    Mandalorian wedding ???

    Hi Guys,

    I have seen this picture, and I think I will start this project someday (not soon cause I'm broke), but I would like to get more info...

    I'm thinking on making both costumes, one for me, and the other for my lovely girlfriend ...

    Here you have a picture:



    I'm just wondering if there is more info about these mandalorians, more pics, etc etc... where this pics belongs, and the most important, is to know is there are more pics, or this draw is just "one of a kind" design made to an specific magazine... (I have read it belong to SW insider 86, but just wanted to know if there is more about them).

    Do you know someone who has made any of these costumes ??? I'd love to see them .

    Thanks

    Ben.

    I don't know about anyone making these yet. I believe it was in the magazine when the article about explaining Mandalorian culture, including weddings.

    I think the only other version of this picture is the uncolored one, but I could be mistaken.

    The only other version I have seen of the photo is the black and white one in the artist's scrapbook. There was a member on here a few months back who was working on the male though sadly his name escapes me.

    In Triple Zero Skirata thinks about Mandalorian weddings (and divorces) a little bit. That's more a general thing though, although I assume those two had the same thing as he did.
    It says the ceremonies are quick and are basically a contract. If I get a chance, I'll put the actual words they use in here.

    Heheh, thanks, although is not for MY WEDDING XDDD, it's just for fun , dont get me wrong, I wont marry with those costumes !!! Just think it would be soo cool to make that costume for my girl, and for me as well ...

    I think that's the only picture available... so I will have to create the rest from my imagination .

    At least it has no JP.. !!! (that is cool cause JP are expensive !!! :P ).

    I like that picture, I think it's cool. Oddly enough, that Mando guy's color scheme is what I based mine on. I like red, and black/dark blue. When I started thinking about making a custom Mando, I got Insider 86, and about a month later I started my costume. Yay Mandalorians!

    The artist who created the artwork for the Mandalorian Culture article is Tom Hodges.

    Well her paint job is cool, and you only see the one gaunt but that has a really good look to it. Along with the other details, the shoulder armor scalloped edge pads, the different chest center, the jewel on the belt, the cape that comes fom over the shoulders and through the belt it looks like, all cool stuff, would like to see that all done! Maybe at C4? And his stuff, like shoulder strap with pouches, the row of cyliders along lower armor, and his thigh armor has cutouts. All fun stuff!

    A Star Wars wedding, just what every bride and grooms parents/family want to hear...Someone would blow a gasket over that in my family-guess it's a good thing for them that I want nothing to do with marriage, or it'd be a Mando wedding forthcoming!

    I don't think I could marry a girl who didn't love Star Wars, or at least some other geeky obsession. I hear all these horror stories in my garrison and fanforce about wives who hate Star Wars. I couldn't willingly put myself in that situation. So, a Mando wedding would work for me. Quick, easy ceremony, and get on to the party.

    Re: Mandalorian wedding ???

    HHeheheh, that's funny... I can say I'm very lucky in that aspect... My girlfriend had NOT seen Star Wars before being with me, but she saw them with me, and she likes it... not as deeply sick as I do :P, but she likes it... Now, she has a Slave Leia costume , and I'm making a Zam wesell, Boushh and padme costumes for her, and then I will make these 2 mando, (the male for me and the female for her...).

    So, I think I will never have that problem about hating SW, or hating my hobby... I'm agree with you, it would be hard to be with a person who HATE what I love... .

    I was reading the Mando article for the *insert astronomical number* time and I thought up a rather neat idea for mando couples. Has anyone thought about writing the Mando marriage pledge on the bottom of their gauntlets or another piece of kit.

    I had already decided to do a mandalorian, though I had wanted to just do the usual standard armour at the time. When I saw this picture (moths back) I absolutely loved it! It makes female mando's look cool I think! I was originally going to make the armour, but I'm thinking of using it as inspiration for me to design my own. I really love the colour scheme though.

    Does anyone have pictures of the people who've already made it?

    My fiance is in the process of making the female mando costume. She just finished the weathering she just has some of the soft parts left. She got pretty creative in making the feather things that are around the shoulder bells. I will see what I can do about getting some pics.

    Couples could make up emblems for one another and combine the two to make a family crest of sorts.

    The vows are:
    Mhi solus tome
    Mhi solus dar'tome
    Mhi me'dinul an
    Mhi ba'jurl verde

    We are one when together
    We are one when parted
    We share all
    We will raise warrios

    Greg, since you proposed while trooping, do I smell a Mando wedding cooking up?

    I was probably going to see if I could have some feather-like pieces lasered out and glued onto a set of WOF laser cut shoulder bells for my friend who's going to start making that costume.
