    ebay is your god then. you can get some torso manns for pretty cheap on there. a full size one i have is made of HDP which is great for armor. look for plastic ones not the plaster/mysteryfill ones.

    I hate buying stuff online. But anyways my friend's family working in the clothings business. If they don't have an old drity one laying around I'm sure I could just buy one across the street from where they work

    I think I found the answer to my chest plate problem. I've been looking around at the other female threads and my head just spins at the stuff they're doing!
    And as you can see, with me just burning plastic, I'm a rather lazy person

    And then I thought, if I can get me a hollow one of these:

    then I could just burn out the parts I need and BAMN instant armor

    That might actually work extremely well...

    I'm going to be perfectly honest, I don't think the blaster is Star Warsy enough. Either get a new one entirely or trick this one out with scopes and other stuff.

    You're entire ensemble looks incredible. I tihnk if you revamped the weapon it would be even better.

    Any tips as to the type of look it should have? Perhaps a longer tip? Black?

    Weapon size etc. is all personal preference.

    What the problem seems to be is that, you used a squirt gun for the base of your blaster, and well...it still looks like a squirt gun.

    some members here are suing Nerf Blasters which can make very convincing blasters if modified appropriately. The Nerf blasters have more Star Warsy look to them, opposed to your squirt gun, which I think is more Trekkie looking.

    Do a forum search for "PM-90 Nerf".

    I think I see, then. I've sometimes wondered what exactly people meant by "Star Warsy." I've always felt that it had something to do with using real firearms from, say, WWII, and modifying them with greeblies. But the comment about Star Trek made me consider where the weight of the gun is. Here's Spock's phaser, and Luke's, Han's, a jawa blaster and a stormtrooper blaster:

    All the Star Wars blasters seem heavy up front--in the barrel. Just a thought.

    Check out wookieepedia's blaster article: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Blaster
    At the bottom is a section of blaster varients, from cannons to hold-out pistols. In those links are a lists of several different star wars blasters to choose from.

    There's any even wider selection here at the Star Wars Galaxy wiki: http://swg.wikia.com/wiki/Ranged_weapons
    However, they over extend the use of mauser and british sterling designs.

    I like the DE-10 personally. It's based off of the real world 1851 Navy Colt Revolver

    Your doing a great job, I can't wait to see it finished. Keep it up!

    Just a thought for the shaping of your chest armour... I spotted a pic in the forums on some new figures coming out that may be of some use for you


    Also shows partly some blasters the females have... have you ever thought of those water gun attachments for garden hoses. sometimes those hardware shops have some pretty cool stuff. Oh and the one that the red chick mando has looks very much like an Israeli Uzi Submachine gun... plenty of toys of them, especially smaller 'kid sized' ones.. add a few random greeblies and hey presto...

    if you can find old hardware junk stores some of the drills and bases of hilti guns are realy close to the droid blasters.

    Thanks for making up this Mirta armor, when the next Karen Traviss LotF book comes out I can finally picture what she'd look like. Think I'm going to re-read Sacriface now!

    Your armor, the whole kit is looking hot, Zam.

    oh wow, I was looking back at some old female armor in the forums and look what I found:


    I'm not the only one who had that gun!

    anyways, my suit is like amazingly close to being complete. The only thing that stands in my way is the chest and back armor!!!

    I did make a duct tape mold of myself to see where I can go from there.
