Discussion on My new armor within the Expanded Universe Bounty Hunters forum, part of the Star Wars Universe category; here's a pic of my newly painted armor.
I sat here for a minuit and thought, "Well I can't tell anything from that tiny picture", and then I relised you could click it. I like the blue and silver combo on the helmet, it looks realy good, well all of it does for that matter. I've actualy got that same Tac. belt somewhere I beleive, or one alot like it anyway.
Does my vision serve me Correctly is that a shoulder bell for your cod
The shoulder bell for a cod is the only off looking part of your costume. Grab some Sintra or a trash can and make yourself a new cod. Other then that your ok with everything else.
I will be getting a cod piece, and hopefully some leg armor, I'm getting a "samurai 3000" line kantana. I've always wanted a sword on my mando.
Nice, I got the same kind of belt :p
Yes, get yourself a new cod
My cod is much bigger than yours.... 8)
It HAD to be said!
I'm going to dull the blade down. so it's safe.
Remember that a Katana is a real weapon, so keep that in mind when you go trooping out in public. Sometimes it may be best to leave it at home for safety reasons.
To back up what GCNgamer128 said, alot of conventions won't let you bring in real weapons to. Found that out the hard way be seeing a guy with a Kendo stick get tackled. Use the sword for your pics and make a non-functional replica for trooping.
Point well taken guys, i have seen similar unfortunate events occur. Mando for christ, i was going to make my real blade as the guys above said, for photos and around friends/costuming group. The replica would be a very good idea so you dont get executed, heh. Are you planning to have a scabbard at all? or any ideas on how you want it to sit?
I was thinking of having it on my back, And I would probaly make a fake sword too.
And I would leave it as it is.
i was thinking of using a sword like ronan dex's from stargate atlantis...he has a ****** sword i cant seem to find a pic of it but i'll try and dig one up nd post it up...i love swords with mandos they just kinda WORK!
hey, what about something like that?
There is a mandalorian saber of old that is made out of Beskar like the armor is. If you check the wookiepedia entry for Beskar then you should be able to find some info on it.
What could I make a good pair of knee armor from? I also would like to know where I could get some sintra plastic from.
ahh, ok sorry...........
LOVE the atlantis idea, Dex had an awesome sword! I preferred his "blaster" tho because of the cool noise and discharge flash.
Mando for christ, what design are you trying to make? if you are getting a wooden one done up you could use a lathe, depending on what design.
As far as sintra knees go. you could most likely make them yourself out of a garbage can you would buy, the small round office type ones. if you look around on these boards you might be able to find the knee templates, just print them out to scale, and cut around those on the bin. Might take a couple of goes to get perfect, but it will be cheap, and easy for you.
www.usplastics.com carries expanded PVC sheet / sintra.
thanks for the link man!!! Also you mean the plastic office trash cans?
for good ideas for knees chech the mirta gev post...i think she got the idea from clay but i cant find the post that he mentions it in so mirtas is your best bet...the look really good and are so simple you'll kick yourself for not thinking of it before!
Oh, it was a ninja, but I broke his neck. so. yah... ^^ I got my sword yesterday.
hey i have that sword too, its a really cool blade design
Hey guys I'm going to be fasting from tomorrow to Aug. 3 so see you guys then.
I'm making cod and knee armor out of a office trash can right now. So if you guys want pics I get you some.
