    You need a RF tho

    What gauntlets are they? Look pretty interesting for a custom!
    Good work.

    looks like she has one but it's clear and thinner. pretty cool how the light on the side opens up. just a suggestion, maybe try to shape the armor a little. might add some more depth to the suit. good job!

    I'd love to see more pics of the dog food gauntlets! I'm always looking for found items that can do the job.

    Thanks for the pics. What are the dimensions on those? I've gone round and round on variations to gauntlets, but still have to come up with a "base" I like. Some guys go with tubes that don't look quite right, and others' like Ram Zerimar's are simple (no armaments) but look fantastic. I'll see if I can find these things here.

    awesome start!! when your redoing the armor add a 2nd layer to the armor you will see a world of difference! there is alot of pics on here of members going with one layer, then post updated pics of the 2nd layer, its like night and day! When shaping the armor try a heat gun or hair dryer it should bend and retain its shape! since it is a female mando do forget to include the "curvy spots" how much of a curve is up to you but it should have some. And dont forget the best part! dirty it up!! that is the best part by far. my wife is like, "dont you think thats dirty enough?" and im like, "oh nooooo... what else can I throw on it??

    As it stands right now it looks like you basically have the helmet as the only showpiece of the ensemble - i.e., the helmet is awesome and perfect, and the rest of the suit not so much. I would not consider this a finished costume (you probably don't either, actually), but if you added more to it I would be really impressed.
