Looking forward to having you over for the armor party on Friday!

and don't feel too bad about the photobucket thing.  It hates me.  The program flipping hates me.  That said, getting the pics upon the threads can be really helpful. . . so keep at it! 

Maybe one of our tech savvy fellow mercs can help (both of us) figure out a better way to manage photobucket uploads for better success.  :)

@ Nia Kad Runi
Yes. I'm definitely looking forward to the party. I've just been informed my chest armor won't make the cut so to speak since it isn't close enough to current era style and my gaunt idea won't pass either. so, onto the scrap pile everything went and back to the drawing board we go.
One step forward, two back it seems.

Hmmmmmm. . . 

So, if we're pushing pause to get re-oriented here.  May I ask a concept question?

Given your concept- and the things that you want to do, would doing an early era mando better suit the things that make your heart sing?

http://mandalorianmercs.org/get-involved/costume-requirements/

I want you to be a happy bad@$$, that has a costume people identify as Star Warzy. . .  we should be able to find a way to make that happen.  We just might need to change the parameters a little. 

If we have to, we can turn Friday into concept idea discussion.  Bring your computer so we can reference CRLs and find sample approved costume pics.  Some of my favorite references come from the approved costume gallery.   . . seeing what's been done (and approved) is a huge help.

Don't give up. We gotta get you OM so you can parade and invade and have all the fun!   :)

@ Nia Kad Runi

I'll just set all my bone and skull stuff aside. Maybe early will be a future project in a couple years. As for this one, I don't know. I'm definitely gonna take a few steps back and rethink my original design and make some choices as to it's future.

Wow Vod. I LOVE the look of the reptile/ snake-skin pattern for your plates. It might not pass App approval for Modern Era, but with modifications, I can see this being a phenomenal early era kit!

It could also be a fun "unofficial" kit to have for special occasions too.

I love that idea and pattern.

Could you please give more information how does the modern era requirement affect the pattern material? We put carbonfibers. There is a costume painted with scale-like modern patterns at some areas, so I'm getting a bit confused myself.

The cod indeed looks like out of the era, but I have difficulties with seeing that picture (it's distorted ).

Anyway, I'll be following with interest.

It's already approved. I'm in process of upgrading my Codpiece and shoulder.

The whole kit is meant to look scaled, not carbon fiber. The Endgame is Reptilian Beast Tamer.
The cod is required by brigade, so I figured I'd make one that fits my character, hence the skull. I'm working on an alligator hide bite gauntlet as well, which I'll get pics up eventually.

Really?

*screams internally*

Now I'm starting to get ideas for my next kit!
Like I said, I love the snake-skin/ croc skin pattern on your plates, and I noticed you carried it over to your kama too. Did you go Beastmaster with this?

~Kaylin

Edited: Ah! Yes. Kaylin my dear, you need to scroll down further to see answers to your questions.

I still think this kit is amazing.

Thank you. I'm In process actually. Going for Beast Tamer within that brigade set. I've got some more alligator hide ordered for my next upgrades. I'm making my bite gauntlet with it.

We got confused Vod. :)
Judging by the discussion, I thought you had trouble with getting official. So in your favour I've thrown in few examples of materials that are accepted, and as such yours should be as well.

I'm really happy it's working for you, and the kit is outstanding! I'd love to see further upgrades. Good luck!

Oh. Ok. Yeah. Didn't understand apparantly.
Yes, I did have a bunch of problems getting approved. I think it took around five or six sets of emails, but thanks largely to my clan, we got me approved.

Well - there's nothing a bunch of determined Vode can't achieve! ;)
