    Hey guys!

    I introduce to you my armor, how I came to build it and how it looks like, from the concept to the "finished" (Beskar'game are NEVER finished XD) armor.

    I hope you enjoy it!


    1. Idea / Design

    The first concepts looked like the pictures above. My first idea was a army green color. It took me about one or two months until I had the final concept done.
    It was somehow the hardest part of the whole armor: To become clear "WHAT do I WANT?!".

    I talked with many people about it and when I got my name "Skira" I came to the result: Skira is the Mando'a word for "Revenge". In the mandalorian culture the color for revenge is.....GOLDEN.
    So why not make it golden?!

    The "final" concept was done:

    I wrote "final" like this because it still wasn't finished: I decided, I wanted an other helmet.
    The second Pre Vizsla helmet!

    2. Armor making


    Ok the concept was done.
    After messing everything, fiting the paper templates and getting the plates it was time to work hard!!!
    (Special thanks to my boyfriend Jaro Krieg who helped me a lot at this point.)

    Very nice!
    How was the armor painted ?
    The first picture on the last row gives me a kinda Fem Sheppard from Mass Effect Vibe.

    Thank you!
    It was just normal spray paint you get in the DIY market. XD Difficult to explain in a foreign language...
    The weathering was made with acrylic colors, painted roughly on it and then washed the most of it away.
    Fem Sheppard? Yeahhh....thank you!! That really is a compliment!
