Nico WIP - the sequel
« on: Mar 12, 2016, 11:27 AM »
So up until recently, its been a long while since I've actually done anything to my mando armor in regards to improvement; cuz college, and all the time that takes up. Now that i'm graduated, got a spiffy new set of plates from Kill Stripe Props, and repainted what got carried over from my v1 armor; I'm finally being more serious about being up to snuff for CRL approval standards.

As such, I'm looking for suggestions on what should be changed/fixed/added to get my gear up to approval-status this year. To mention beforehand, i've already ordered a backplate and have a Boba-style cape to replace my long-worn pretty cape.

Overall, it looks pretty good.  It could use more weathering - but I'm of the Kal Skirata school of thought about mando armor.  heh  The only thing that really stands out to me is that your gauntlets look like they're stormtrooper armor painted to match.  I think those will need to be altered - possibly significantly - to be approvable.  You'll definitely want an App team member's ruling on it to be sure.

As far as I know, so long as its in-universe in appearance, there's nothing against using stormie gaunts.

True enough, but there's an upper limit to how much non-mando gear you can have on your kit. I don't recall the exact percentage, though, which is why I said you'll need to have an App Team Member weigh in.   :D  Mind you, I love those gaunts, I just don't want your app to get dinged and you have to scramble.

HOLY....  Deja Vu!

Sorry!  Nico, you don't know me, but I know of you!  Someone on another forum (a game called Flight Rising) mentioned your name a week or two back and linked me to your FB page when a topic about costumes came up and I mentioned I'm planning Mandalorian armor. 

Anyway, I like what you've got, and I can't wait to see what your gear looks like with the new cape and such (funny how little touches can change a whole look).  I sincerely hope those gauntlets pass approval, I think they are a nice variation on the usual gauntlets.
