I am new to the forum, new to making Star Wars costumes, but not new to making things. I spent years in the Theatre industry doing props and costumes. I've got skills, but with three kids, very little time for making. My hope is to buy pieces to build the armor, then paint and combine the pieces into Beskar'gam. I started with the thought that buying sporting equipment and modifying it. But now I'm hearing that I can probably afford the armor makers are offering. Helmet's another matter, I'm going to have to buy one, I don't have the time to get the keystone element right.
My wife and I are going for a Clone Wars era set of costumes. (Oldest kid will be young Boba) The wife and I are going with EU custom characters. Here are my four current colour possibilities.
I would love to hear what you think (of the designs and my uphill battle).
