Title: Mandalore the Indomitable
Post by: Nirob on Jun 20, 2016, 11:13 AM
Hey guys.

After seeing the amazing work Ruusar Cin did on his Mandalore costume (http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=91768.0), I bought one of his masks to start my own Mandalore costume. Not much to see by now, but I thought I'd share with you what I have done so far.

The pauldron was made by one of my Clans recruits in exchange for a rifle. I hope the cloak will later make me look wider, so the pauldron doesn't look that wide anymore.

The plan is to get the basic softparts next, so pants an a shirt. I was thinking of getting something from a medieval store like viking pants and a wider shirt in white to dye them later with the balaclava I am planning to use, so it all has the same brown tone.

Vikingpants

Will the laces be a problem when it comes to approval?

I'm sure you've done more research than I have but it doesn't look like there are any laces in the source material. Personally I'd say stay away from laces unless you have seen images with laces. Of course we want to get canon kits as close to the source material as possible but because he is shown in comics and an action figure it's not always easy to get things "screen accurate"

Got a Shirt without lashes. But it has a little v-neck. Will Cover it with the balaclava. Need to make new pics next week.

Liking what you've done so far, I've a thought though.
have you thought of padding the underside of the shoulders to raise off your shoulders and look a bit more imposing?

Good idea. Will wait till I have my robes, to see if they will raise it a little.

Will these shoes work for Mandalore?

Didn't wanted to use boots as Ruusar, since the action figures shoes are not worn above the pants.

Never posted an update. Well that was the state 2 years ago. Still trying to figure out some things and find a resource for cutting patterns for the robe.
