  1. Jun 11, 2008, 8:54 PM - My Fem Mando Progress (pics) #1

    Hello ALL. Me and my boyfriend are in the process of constructing a Fem Mando. We are both super excited and.. I GET TO HAVE A BOOB PLATE!! This is where I will be posting my progress pictures so ENJOY!!
    xo The Pink Mando.


    PICS!


    Started out with a old 96 Don Post that I got recently.





    Started cutting away the visor, drilling out the key holes and adding some damage cuz i wanna be bad ***!




    Then I filled in the Don Post / Lucasfilm print with some Bondo and sanded that down.




    then the primer....wet sanded to 400


    Then Krylon Flat White base coat. This is going to be the white of the armor.


    I just had my boyfriend order a Bobamaker T-visor and chest armor is on the way!!

    Did you have much trouble removing the range finder and other parts from the helmet ?
    I guess it is true that real Mandos eat Ramen noddles

    welcome to TDH
    good start
    are you going to have any add ons? example-cloak/kama/bandolier
    and are you going to change something with the armor or the helmet to make it a different design from everyone else?

    nice start. you will ahve to cut out the bottom part of the helmet visor section to get your visor installed....

    skirts are for girls...or clones!

    The range finder came off pretty easy with a flat head screwdriver. Its going to resemble a basic mando but i'm going to have my own designs and possibly a mini skirt. I want to make a belt and holster for my pink guns. I kept the piece in the visor to keep its shape. Does anyone know where i can get some pink Mythosaur skull decals?? THANKS!!

    Great start so far. I started with a DP96 myself. Yours looks to have a great shape to it. Great choice by filling in the lettering in the back, and ordering a bobamaker visor, I did the same as well. Try Lucksy31, he may be able to help with the decal

    You should fill in the dent on the helmage, if your goin custom design it looks a bit unoraginal with the boba dent . this is just my opinian...

    Welcome to the board Tiffany.

    Looks like you are off to a good start. I would have to agree, however, no need to keep the original BF dent for a custom.

    Did you already do some sketches of what you are going for? Those are always inspirational. Can't wait to see more progress.
  14. Jun 12, 2008, 8:06 PM - Re: My Fem Mando Progress (pics) #14

    Thanks everyone. I thought about filling in the dent but kind of liked the way it looked. No sketching, just playing it by ear. My boyfriend is pretty good at helping me.

    Put the pink on today!!

    Great job I can not wait to see how it well look when weathered and the battle damage is painted.
    For your decal ,have you thought of making a stencil to paint it so the "pink" is the same as on your helmet and armor?

    you should try to get a pink-ish tinted visor! that would look crazy!!
  19. Jun 13, 2008, 12:48 PM - Re: My Fem Mando Progress (pics) #19

    Oh yeah, thats a must. I want to put some pink designs on the chest armor and I'm looking for a fabric of some sort to make a skirt to match the pink.
    ....
    Thanks! hah i got very OCD when i was masking off the helmet. Im an artists so its in my bloody to be anal retentive.
    ....
    A pink tinted visor would be sweet! I never thought of that.

    You should definitely look up Barbie Fett. Your concepts seem to be similar. Good luck.

    Now dirty that bucket up, it's way too clean. ;^D

    And for the record let me just say that pink spray paint in a satin finish is hard to come by. REALLY hard. As in Manhattan had no idea what I was talking about lol.

    Yeah i did check out her pictures on flickr. They look great! I do plan to dirty it up some when its all done. I have actually been looking all over the web for more armor parts and I think I am going to mix and match armor pieces from different costumes. I'm thinking about doing a Imperial Biker Scout back and biceps and maybe add some stormtrooper accessories. I dont know though. Just an idea.
