All great, especially the lights.
Ok so I was trying to have a vender / supplier make a Jango vest for my custom build but the communication didn't go well sadly. I was told to fill out a full body template by this person but I thought that was kind of odd for a vest. Why a full body template I asked kindly (inseam/ lower waist?) but I was basically told to just do it and get in line, well lets just say that doesn't work on me.
So long story even longer, I hit the craft store and dusted off the sewing machine. some parts of the vest came from a faux leather jacket I cut up a bit. the stitching is not the best but hey its a custom build right.
covering my face for your good trust me!

covering my face for your good trust me! don't think it goes unappreciated i think the custom vest looks cool your build is coming along great other than your helmet which looks just weird to me the whole build is looking great
First test fitting. I wanted to check soft parts and chest armor placement.
Overview: Vest is too long, I should / will take in about 2 inches from the bottom. jumpsuit needs the arms and legs tapered in for a slimmer look. Hmmm I had to remove the blue chest light for the armor to look correct, going to need to cut out an opening in the vest. Chin enclosure looks cool but hell to close once you have the vest and armor on ok more to work and issues to correct, Let me know if I missed anything please. Thanks

Your setup looks really cool! That neck seal is looks really clean, but what is it too close too? Does it rub on your neck when you turn?
Thanks MrDJ yeah that's a great point. It feels great but hey after an hour trooping gee I'm not sure, I'll see. I can always trim it if needed. It was a bit tricky getting the helmet on but this to can be fixed thanks for your feed back Brother

Awesome your a official member on mercs I just got approved myself on Sunday , will you be in armour at the booth ?
not sure yet if I'll be suited up at the booth yet on Friday, hoping to have my PP2 Fett on . Saturday I'll have my Mando Syper on for sure.
Feel free to add a pic of your Mando here Brother.
OK, I have to admit, I've never liked any mando costumes I've seen from seeing any pics of mando merc costumes. Just a personal opinion obviously. But this one looks excellent. Splendid. Not crazy about the piece on the helmet, but EVERYTHING else looks outstanding! Love the vest and flight suit. Love all the red. Gauntlets look badass! Weapons look great as well man.
OK everyone please drive safe, travel safe, get there any way you can! can't to see ya
Take Care (=Syper=)
This costume is out of its mind!!!...that is of course if it had a mind.
Jim, its so cool, i love it all. The jetpack color scheme, the gauntlets, the blue chest lights and that blaster!!! freakin WOW!!!
