    Finally an Intro

    Greetings!

    My name is Heidi. I'm 24 years old from El Paso, Texas. I'm an advisor for Texas Tech University.

    I've been a member of this site for a little while already, but today is the first day I've started to introduce myself here. So far I've kinda just been lurking around the site quietly. :o

    My twin sister, Amanda (username Amandalore), and I are currently working on a female Boba Fett (ROTJ style) costume for me. She's working on the rocket pack and I'm working on pretty much everything else. 8)

    By the way, I just want you all to know that you have been sooo informative and helpful for my project. I'm very impressed by the vast amount of knowlege everyone has on Boba, Jango, and even Zam! :thumbup

    I was going to just do a custom Mandalorian armor set, but I decided a custom fem Fett would just be cooler. If anyone has any tips, suggestions, or even products for sale to help my project, please message me. I can always use some help!

    It's really good to be here!

    LOL!!! Texas Tech are Red Raiders. TCU are horned frogs.

    Nah, I'm not gonna keep it by the book, coz I don't like to see the chest plates crushing/hiding female chests. I've seen too many women in Mandalorian armor just looking like small men with tight pants.
    Although I'm having a bit of trouble shaping the chest plates enough to give it a realistic anatomical curve. So they may end up looking a bit too round. But, hey, I guess it's better than looking like a small awkward shaped man, right?
    On the other hand, I've cut and shaped the back plate to fit my curves and that came out pretty good.

    My avatar is photoshopped with the Bantha skull on my face.
    ...But I'm totally thinking of painting it on like that when I finally finish and can wear my armor!
