    May 31, 2010, 1:55 PM - My trash can custom Mando in 2 weeks for last halloween. #1

    I just thought I would show what I put together last holloween. I only worked on this for about 2 weeks before I used it to take the kids trick-or-treating. I made the armor from trash cans form ideas I found here. I was not going for super accurate just something to see if I could do it. I will be working on a different set soon and taking more time. I am thinking of using fiberglass for the next set. The bucket was built on an old half helmet for motorcycle riding that I no longer used. I had already made my son's jedi costume earlier in the year.

    If you want to continue it, you've got a good base to go with, but I would suggest changing the helmet, maybe looking into a Jango 2 piece and work on that, with some gaunts and gloves I think you'd be 90% the way there.

    Why don't you pop over to the mando mercs board and see if there is someone in your local area prepared to help you?

    The only reason I used the old helmet was to be able to let my godsister use my Jango 2 piece for the costume I made her. I am going to rework that helmet later. I had a back plate but it did not turn out so well because of the short time I worked on the armor.
