Well I've finally started on my custom Mando armor. Thanks to a fett ful of dollars and his idea to cut up a trash cans to make armor, I've been able to find a starting point on a budget. My budget is why I have decide to go custom. Fett costumes can get very expensive. I do plan on sending some money to get this gear looking right. First thing is replace my bucket. I do plan on redoing my rubies for now. But anyways here is my start. Enjoy the pictures. Criticism is welcome, but please be gentle

good start. if you want to upgrade your helmet i'd suggest trying to scratch build. It's really not as hard as it looks. If you can print out and trace templates and follow directions and wing stuff as you go, you can scratchbuild just about anything.

Looks Good. This is the same idea I have for General Grievous's Body Armor. I'm still working on him though, but rest assured I'll post Pics when he's done. C.

Much better job than me my friend! I started by dumping some $$ on eBay for a costume for a start. I did get a good deal, and got to troop as right away, but the only things that remain from that costume are the belt pouches and the CA Boots.

I used tin snips to cut out armor. Then used a razor knife to trim it up.


Here are some more pics of what I call progress. Primed and ready for silver(y)
