    my first mando. its a start.....

    Ive been lurking this sight for a wile now. I got some inspiration from the trash can thread. Thank you AFettFullofDollars!! Got the WOF templates and cut out my armor. So thats it. I have my chest armor , shoulder armor cod piece and an idea. I also wrestled over a name for about a week. I came up with Orar Kar'ta which means Thunder Heart. Heres some pics of what I have so far.

    Great start my friend. Are you planning on wearing the shoulders inverted like you have them now? One of our Falco clan member in Mercs wears them that way also, so it's not completely unheard of if you do. =)

    I like it! What exactly are you going to have scribed onto the arms? Or is that blood weathering?

    Actually its going to be chipped red paint as well as yellow paint on the red knees and gauntlets. just wanted a bit of design instead of solid color.

    just got my flight suit from ebay for 7 bucks! well 17 with the shipping. I was shooting for grey but when i saw this i couldnt resist. i may change the coloring of my mando or i might die the suit black. tell me what ya think.

    I would say to hold off on the dyeing the suit tell you get it all done. That way you can see what it looks like green and if you don't like it you can dye it black.

    I changed the colors to see what the green would look like. I kinda like this one better. what do ya think?

    Wouldn't worry about the collar at all. The neck seal flap should cover it with no problems.
