Hi everyone at the dentedhelmet I'm masterds1 and I'm on a quest for a Mandalorian Costume of my very own. I've actually been a member of the dentedhelemt for a while. I joined in 2007 after I went to Star Wars Celebration IV in LA, and I did make a post then about my desire for a new costume but then I really fell out of the loop for it. I focused more solely on my Jedi Costume which I completed a few years ago. I've used my jedi costume for a lot of Star Wars events over the past few years and still continue to enjoy it. But I've always wanted to work on a new costume preferably a Mandalorian costume like Jango Fett better yet a costume one of my very own. I'd even go as far to say that I've wanted to have a Darth Vader, clone trooper, and Storm Trooper costumes. Ok I think this will sum up everything: I want to make some armor! It finally time. I've had the desire for a long time and I really want to get my costume project going and on track. But I wouldn't even know where to start when it comes to making or getting a costume made. I do know that here at the dentedhelmet is the place to be for Mandlorian Armor I seek. Alright so I am looking for advice please share your wisdom with me fellow dentedhelmet members so that I can fulfill my destiny.
My Mandlorian costume plans:
Ok first off I have two blasters that I want to use with my costume. the blasters were made by hasbro I want to get them casted so they'll look less like toys lol and more like something I could use with my costume. I get to keep the cool sound effects for the blasters but we can get rid of the toy look. Here is a photo of the blasters
I need to figure out how I'm going to get my armor I've heard of do it yourself but I wouldn't even know where to start. Maybe I could do part of it myself I've heard of "Trash can armor" and all that. But still I'd really like to know if there is anyone in the dentedhelmet that makes armor professionally. Hey anyone live in Southern California that makes armor? Well I'm ready to get started may the Force be with you.
Hey incase anyone was wondering about my finished Jedi costume here is a quick look.
