Yeah, I'm creating a Mandalorian costume right now, but I'm making it with cardboard, so it's not very beautiful.....
My problem is: "Where could i possibly find enough money to buy some ufficial costumes or components?"

Hi mastro92! Welcome!!! Indeed you came to the right place! Cardboard armor? There is guy on this forum that has a tutorial on cardboard armor. It came out FANTASTIC!!! Run a search on the top of this page for it, or can someone please attach it (I'm still learning how to do stuff!) . If you have any questions, just ask. I'm sure that someone here will have the answer. By the way, your English sounds great to me, and remember, we love pics. Again, welcome!

Welcome to the group! Good luck with the cardboard costume, you should show pics of your work.

Thank you all.
I've just cut the two chest plates out from the cardboard, so there isn't much to show yet..... When I've painted them I'll take some pics.
But I can do it now, if you insist XD
Woah! I didn't know about the tutorial! But I've seen one on youtube that teaches how to make a "distress" effect that's really good

P.S. Boba Leo, compliments! I didn't expect someone wolud answer me in italian XD
Nov 15, 2008, 5:07 PM - Re: New Guy
Then we are fair, porque yo comprendo uno poquito de espanol!
By the way, I've just finished painting the two chest plates, but I cannot open new threads because I'm a new registered member.....
I must post it here, so....
Here it is (click on it to enlarge):
The black signs are not accidents, I wanted to do them.... XD You can see, I hope XD, some vibroblades' slashes in the left plate and a blaster shot in the right one
P.S. I think that maybe the plates are too long... Should I shorten them?

Mastro, if you are going for a custom mando look, there really are no set guidelines to follow on armor shape. I personally dont like to stick to the generic Fett armor for my custom, it is being modified currently.
Welcome to TDH!

Muchas gracias, Leo. Please, don't say "lei", say "tu".....
And yes, I'm gonna paint it, using standard silver color..
To 987654321a: It is my intention to craft a Jango-style armor, 'cause he's my favourite Mandalorian warrior

You know, being called "lei" is strange for a 15 years guy XD
Nov 18, 2008, 10:49 AM - Re: New Guy
Argh! I had to stop building my armor, 'cause I can't find any decent template of Jango's gauntets....
The only one I found is the WoF's templates, but I can't print them in the right size: my computer prints them very very very very short, about 2'' wide.....
Can anybody tell me where I can find them?
