What a cool idea!  I've always loved the arctic mando look, and it's a nice bonus to have a cozy cape for winter troops lol.  Looking forward to seeing your progress :)

Hi Mando world! It's been a while since I've updated here, but I have FINALLY got some progress on my build now that I got some free time. I got together with a friend today and got all of my armor cut and fitted, next I need to finish my flak vest and officially place the armor. It's not positioned perfectly yet lol. I decided to layer the collar piece to fit with my chest armor well, since there was a bit of a gap between the two. I really love the look of it!! I also went with Nite Owl styled shoulder plates, to go with my Nite Owl helmet :<3:





So my first try for a belly plate had too much room by the sides near the chest armor. So we updated the pattern a bit and I think it works so much better!!

First belly plate try:


Second and hopefully final belly plate try:


Gauntlets made my a fellow clan member, 3D printed and glued together with help from my other friend/clan member! I just need to sand the crap outta them and paint!



Now all the armor just needs to be painted!! I have a helmet I got from a fellow clan member, it needs a bit of tweaking to get into shape. So all that's left is boots, finishing my vest, belt, and cape!! Which for me is the easy part  :D

Small but super awesome update already!! I am almost finished with my vest, just need to get my sash and belt before I fully decide were to hem it, and might add a third strap too based on that.

Vest:





I tried to put the armor on to get an idea for the look and where everything will sit, but tape and my fabric don't like each other apparently so it's not the best haha. It works for now to get a look at it so that helped!! Also I found the exact type of boots I've been after (hi thanks Aneira for the inspiration/friendship that led me to these beauties!!) https://www.tillys.com/product/wild-diva-canvas-lace-up-lug-sole-white-womens-boots/36241415004.html
I plan to make little spats to go over the laces, I can't wait till they arrive!

Looking good! And those boots will work just fine once the laces are covered.

Those look great! :D they will fit good with your design.
maybe heavier ductape for the placement of the plates? :D I think so far it looks pretty neat, the belly plate might need some trimming in the future.
But that will get more clear to see once you try it on all together again.

I definitely suggest a third strap at the bottom of the vest. It will keep the bottom tucked nicely under your sash and prevent it from slipping out when you move.

Quick update! I have finished my cape (and holy crap am I in love with it!!) and finished my boot covers. I tried on the soft parts I have currently and finally am seeing this come together!! I plan to use the remaining material from my sash for a neck seal/scarf, and will be making a loin cloth matching the cape. I want to wait on that part until I have the belt so I can properly measure. I'm going to an armor party this weekend and plan to paint the armor and work on my helmet. Then all thats really left is the belt, pouches, and gloves (which I will most likely make this week sometime). I'm so excited to see this coming together and can't wait to have more of her finished soon!! Also HUGE shoutout to Kryamla for always being awesome and helping me with this :<3:

Cue awkward soft part pictures:

Yes! Soft parts look great, you have a good handle on what you're doing, and your game plan seems solid. You'll be official in no time!
