Finally found another pair of gloves that I like after I lost one of my other gloves at an armour party. I hope they'll work- no logos or anything, though the chevrons are distinctive- but not noticeable when I'm wearing them.  Any thoughts?

Look fine to me. As far as chevrons go, aren't they kind of like pyramids? Three separate civilizations all independently came up with an interesting design? :P :laugh:

I don't see why those gloves wouldn't be approvable. They're really nice in my opinion

Perfect! That's what I was hoping the verdict would be :) I was thinking glove armour, but it interferes with my gauntlets. Maybe later :)

I got around to attaching more buckles to my vest yesterday, along with my backplate!! What we did was attach the back half of the buckle to the backplate, and it clips in to one of the buckles on my vest.


My Kama is half finished now... soft parts are almost done, which means weathering (which kind of terrifies me). Anyone have any soft part weathering tips or advice?

Dirt is our friend. The best kits look like you haven't had much time to clean them... ever. ;D Think about where you've been (Hoth or Endor? Or both), what you did while you war there (stuck in the rough for a month or a tea party), and how many times has this happened to you over the years?

Think layers as well: a little dirt, then cleaned up (when you got the chance), then more dirt. Each scar, scratch, chip, bump tells a story. They didn't all happen at once well. Some just happened, others happened years ago. What is that going to look like? Weather doesn't have to be filthy to be good, it just needs to be honest looking like knees and elbows getting ground in dirt. Just a few ideas for you. ;)

I really like the idea of bucking the back plate into the vest....I might 'borrow' it.  ;) Or something similar.
The third plate on mine is starting to pop up for no reason.

I'm sorry, I just now stumbled on this and these soft parts are amazing. 

Those gloves of yours look pretty good to me.  You could claim that the gray leather is made from Kaminoan, like a set of gloves a certain null trooper is known to have!   :)
