    That armor looks like it is fresh out of the belly of the sarlacc. It is awesome.

    i think you might want to start over using some armor templates. the templates are perfect in shape and size. and that does that cardboard hold or is it flimsy? also don't use a T shirt for your vest they tend to sag when you have them on. there are many people around here and on the mercs that will make you a good quality vest.

    hey man dont get upset ive got a tiny budget too, but ive found ways past the fact. for armor you can buy a 15 dollar trash can at wall mart and cut your armor out of that using a hobby knife. carefull though cuz ive cut both my fingers off about half way due to me being not careful. i got 10 stitches in the right index finger and 7 on the left a while back.
    here are the templates

    you just print out the small ones that fit you, cut em out and trace then on your trashcan. then you very carefully cut them out with the hobby knife. try to get your dad to do it for you because its very dangerous. for a helmet check ebay for a helmet called a rubies 2 piece jango fett helmet. theyre cheap and a fairly good helmet to start off with. keep posting progress, me and many other people on the boards will help out.

    Hey Jango 425, go watch this youtube tutorial on making cardboard armor. It's extremely cheap and if you follow it to the letter you can end up with some not bad looking armor.

    I have to say, it's not the best start. Definitely go the whole nine yards with some plastic or cardboard from scratch, with perfected templates.
