    I'd say gauntlets and knee's are the only things missing the rest looks cool. Perhaps some trophies.

    If thats your first suit, that's not to bad guy.

    I'd think about maybe putting the straps inside my flight suit instead of the outside. Other then what you've already said you were doing...thats really all I can see that you may want to change if you feel the need.

    Hiding the straps, or at least dying them to match your jumpsuit would be a good place to start. Gauntlets, like everyone else said...but you don't have to do the typical Boba/Jango style...I could actually see your mando with a set of gauntlets that are smaller and more streamlined.

    What's the armor made out of? It looks real good. That's some awesome work for your first suit.

    I think as far as attaching the leg armor goes leather straps would look cool

    If he keeps the straps on the outside then leather would work, if he puts them inside then they are gonna rub you raw when they get sweaty.

    I dont think the straps need to be on the inside at all, because then if you need a quick adjustment (Like I saw you do a few times at CIV) it would be a tad more difficult.

    His armor is aluminum, hard core tough stuff, they hammered it out themselves (The DSG, Dune Sea Garrison).
    I would re-glue the visor to the helmet, because you are squinting and the teeth and mandibles are farther apart.

    I like it dude, keep it up, I gotta troop with all you mandos when mine is done...say SDCC??

    I think that would look cool. Doing gauntlet blades like Jango's in EP II would look very cool.

    He doesn't need to hide the straps, it works well with his scheme.

    Reid, since I've seen the costume in person, I will say you did a mighty impressive job with it. In regards to the leg straps, I will say you'd be just fine with them going on the outside of the jumpsuit. The only reason I'd say it should go on the inside would be if it's a "canon" costume and the straps were on the inside.

    The only suggestion I've got for ya I think has already been mentioned, and that's the paralleling of the mandibles on the helmet. They start to widen out further towards the bottom. That's the only thing I'd suggest fixing. I can show ya exactly what I mean next time we meet up.

    Oh great Andy! Now you're gettin' him hooked on heading up that way as well! Next time I for sure can make a trip up there, I'll let Reid know.

    The cod looks kindof out of place...not enough of a red border I guess. It looks great though!

    I will agree it looks out of place, but it seems to be fine.
    Maybe the way it is painted might be it, but I am not sure.

    It's hard to see the depth and where the red border ends on the sides of the cod. It's not bad at all, just maybe a shade confusing =D

    Scott, are the straps on you Boba/Jango on the inside, or is it velcroed on?

    My knee armor is velcroed on to my jumpsuit for both and , but only to prevent the knee armor from slipping down. I need straps to stop it from popping off.

    I use to velcro my straps onto the knee armor, but the problem with that was the velcro kept coming loose. So now I use snaps to hold the straps on (I use this method on both costumes.) But the straps for my run on the outside of my jumpsuit while the straps for my run on the inside.
