    1 Week Ago - Jul 17, 2015, 11:20 AM - Bo Katan build for my wife #1

    Hey everyone,
    I'm starting a Bo Katan for my wife and I'm looking for a little help on things.

    Since my wife is smaller I decided to build the armor out of foam so I can get a good fit for her. I know the kits would work, but would probably look a little large on her and I would have to do a lot of trimming. This way I can make my templates to match her first and then cut everything out and shape it.

    I'll see if I can post some pics tonight of the progress. I'm hoping I can have this done by mid September for an event we are attending.

    Any advice for building with foam would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Here are my paper templates I made for my wife. I made single
    copies, because if you flip it, it's the duplicate for the other side.



    These are the foam versions that I have shaped. I still need to shape the breast plate and do the gauntlets. I also have to make the back for the jet pack.



    Any thoughts on the knees? Should I keep it the way I did, with shaping the sides around the knee. I just used the heat gun to warm it up and bend it around her knee?

    Ordered the boots from Famous Foot Wear, and they are on the way.

    Boots came in, now working on the templates for the armor on them.
