    My Mando

    So I pulled out my custom for the first time at comic con and finally managed to find someone who snapped a pic of me. Just wanted to see what you all thought.

    I think it looks pretty good, good color choices. Should clean the exterior of the visor every now and then, nothin says "oops" like a mando missing a shot due to a smudge on the visor.

    Hey Dini! I met you at Comic Con, I'm Scott's friend, Andy. The curly headed kid. I don't remember if I was in Boba or Stormtrooper that day though.

    I saw it at Comic Con and I think it looks good. If it were me, I'd get rid of the primer looking paint on the helmet and gauntlets and the jp if that's what I'm seeing, and add a splash of color like a nice red ...but that's just me and half the time I don't know what the heck I'm talking about. Go with what makes you happy!

    Looking good Dini, how's it wear compared to your clone?

    Definately more comfortable than the clone, more maneuverability

    As for the visor, unfortunately I can't do anything about the smudge except replace the visor, I ended up spilling glue on it and it won't come off.

    Try some sort of glue remover?

    I also learned that the Novus that cleans up the Stormtrooper armour cleans just about everything.

    The smudge might just be more battle damage

    I love the colors. would ditch the JP go with a different color vest. but the I like the green black grey thing very hunter/ survival. Sweet job on the whole thing especially the guants. what's your sidearm I wonder.

    The sidearm is one of those converted nintendo zappers

    I agree that the grey should remain. Yes, it does remind me of the grey sandable primer colour, but in this colour scheme it works really well. I love the color arrangements. Awesome.

    Looks nice.
    Perhaps a little battle damage/weathering on the gauntlets and or adding green accents would help them blend better with the rest of the costume.

    Did you get your gauntlets from JD too?

    Yeah the gauntlets are JD as well. I was gonna weather them more but I ran out of time. This was my first run with the costume anyways so it gives me a chance to fix all the little things
