    Oct 7, 2015, 9:55 AM - Custom Mando Armor WIP #1

    Hey everybody i started this thread to show you my custom mando armor progress!
    Maybe like 2 years ago I was watching a special episode of the Clone Wars where Obi-Wan played his death to become Rako Hardeen and prevent Palpatines assassination.
    In that episode he got a cool looking helmet (which is basically a customized McQuarrie concept helmet ) and i got inspired by it and started to make my own custom mando armor.

    I'm working on the helmet since February (if you want to check it out here's the link: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f45/r...met-wip-51862/ )and i started the armor yesterday.

    So here's the first sketch of the costume:

    That looks good. From what I've read, you might want to move your collar up about a 1/4 inch. That will help with spacing. But man, it still looks cool.
