Need an opinion
« on: Nov 02, 2018, 10:47 AM »
Hi,
I started to think of my soft parts and I did stumble over some nice faux leather, my idea is to maybe use it for the flag Vest and Kama,
I am just a bit unsure if it really fits for a Mandalorian, so I would like some opinions :)

Looks cool. If it's not too heavy, it could look very interesting as a flak vest.

Given the pattern, I'd almost want to use it as a border for the kama instead of the whole thing.

Thx for your response :)
Jeah I thought it might give a very heavy armomored look to it, planed to make a kama with armor plates on top, so the pattern will only be shown partlly.

I typically advise people to stay away from patterns and textures that aren't definitely present on-screen in Star Wars.  But if you're armoring your kama and only a little of that shows, it should be ok.  If you can find some faux (or real) leather that's not patterned, that'd be best.

As usual, Havelock has it pretty much exactly right. :)

That aside... I LOVE that material!  You should DEFINITELY get some and at least use it for trim and/or accents.
