Anyway i bought a Bo Katan kit from KWD for my wife and i am currently working on it, we were supose to do a Bo Katan Canon but a friend of ours (locally) had the same idea before us so we decided to change our plans... Wife finally decided to go for a Boba Fett prototype armor in the style of a lady so basially a Bo Katan prototype armor all white... hehe

As for now its going to be all white (no battle damage, weathering etc...) We have the Montreal Comic-Con coming in about a month so we are a bit in a rush right now... Later this year i will probably re-work the armor and add details like weathering and black wash...

So i started with the ammo belt/pouches.

I cutted my box for the ammo pouches from these foam puzzle mat that they sells at Wal-Mart:

Folded it and glued, i made 8 of them:

Here is my pattern to cover these boxes with white faux leather:

Here is the final product:

We are sanding all the pieces of the armor as we speak, tomorow i might have a few questions regarding the assembly...

Thanks for reading,

Martin.
