    You guys that know me also know how I feel about Customs.
    However, My gorgeous wife wants to do a Femm Mando so we can troop together.
    You guys that know me also know how I feel about my Wife.

    So that being said, I need your pics of Female mandos to help conjure some ideas & designs for her.

    thanx in advance

    Here's a fem clone that someone posted over at CT.N a long while ago. Since The Clone Wars clones are technically Mando, and I thought I'd post it here.

    I'm not sure if the guy who posted it made it or someone else, so cheers to the artist!

    Here are pics of my wife's costume. She did not go with the female armor, we just bent the regular peices to form around her upper areas.

    Try a single breast plate, similar to Cade Skywalker's mando armor, plus room for clevage and a "V" cut.


    Kinda like the femtrooper on the left

    yea like that and then probably cut down on the top of the breast plates and the v-cut should be wide
    here are some femm pics

    For clevage, you might just want one piece of armor on the top, but I dont know.

    Either way, I still dont know how you are going to make the breasts in the armor.

    you could do the whole duct route. Wrap her in ducktade, plaster it up, cut her out of it, make a mold from that, and there ya go. I think Rotton did that with her Vhonte Tervho build. I also read about a latex batwoman suit that was made the same way.

    I just saw this on the bay, I don't know if it will be of any interest or help, I'd probably go with something a little better, but I thought I'd post it anyway:

    Removed Ebay Link.
    Here is a pic of the auction:

    Well I thought about cleavage. I probably would not have collar armor. But you could split the collar in two pieces, and the belly plate, then have a zip up front, unzipped to that perfectly "draw your eyes here" height.. Or modify the collar and belly to look like it is supposed to be 2 peices. You still have the center diamond piece to deal with, or not have at all! Or have the top of the chest armor pieces low enough to meet up with the top of like a bustier type thing.. does that make sense? Not really cleavage but boob showin' none the less! Hmm Let me see what other ideas I can up with. And hydra has some really cool designs, not cleavage style but great ideas.

    Rotton,
    I came up with the same basic ideas as you.
    The collar won't be there, & the diamond may not make it into the final either.
    the abplate will be one piece
    The Bustier might be the way to go since a vest wont look right if it's cut that low.
    I think it will fasten in the back (most of hers do anyway) & will eventually be a leather one

    She wants Westars (for twirling), so a Jango style holster will be the way to go.
    It will also have a smaller ammo belt , as not to create bulk about the waist
    No thigh or shin armor, and "Chunky" boots with buckles, probably these.

    Here's a concept of her paint scheme.
    the colors are Hot Pink, Charcoal Grey, and Black
    The original pics belong to Gino,( hope he doesn't mind me using them)

    Those boots are cool! They might take a while to put on, but still cool! lol
    Can't wait to see pics either--this is a thread I need to keep an eye on, and I'm going to check out Rotton's thread too--any Femme Mando stuff!

    gamer--did your friend base her costume from one of the images in SW Insider #86? It looks familiar and a great idea.

    That pink hurts my eyes...
    LOL j/k!

    I like the buckles on that second boot, and yeah, I can see where the matte finish would work better with the costume I'll take a gander at the "in progress" thread soon
