Road to OM!!! A Legacy WIP *Pic Heavy*
« on: Aug 19, 2019, 04:08 PM »
*updated armor design middle of pg2*

Greetings Brothers and Sisters!!

First a bit about myself.

My name on here is Mstruvmgc which starts for Master of Magic. I used to play a lot of magic the gathering lol. Once i get my OM status i plan on changing my name.
Many of you do now know me as i am new to posting on the forums even though I signed up back in 2015. Im a slacker lol.

I decided it was time to start a WIP thread on my journey to become an Official Member. I hope you enjoy the journey with me. :-)

Okay so for this first post there will be mulitple pictures, and i will do my best to post cosistantly so i wont lose my motivation.
Right now they only parts of the kit that i have are the flight suit i received from a friend here in vegas (who is also trying to become OM), footwear, flak Vest, blaster, and helmet (no picture yet).
 
Pictures:
First we have the template i made for my flak vest. I used Points Thread as motivation :-) linked here http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=63411.0



Second is it cut out and put on some fabric to see if it fit. I added a dart around the chest area to get it to hug my chest better.


Third is that pattern put onto some leather and hand stiched togehter. I made it to where i could semi easily put the vest on by myself by added side openings


Fourth is a picture taken a on 8/17/2019 at an armor party we had here is vegas. As you can see i have the flak vest on with the flight suit. This pic is to show the scale of the armr pattern. I did some trimming on it before this pic because it seemed to big. I still have some tweaks i think, but we shall see. The girth belt in this picture is not mine. i was trying it on for sizing for the armor. Im actually thinking about going the sash route. but thats for later :-)


Fifth picture is the shoes i plan on using for my kit. I will probably do some mods to it, but we shall see.


And the last picture for today is the blaster i plan on using for this build. Its a D-200 i got from Kruzer.


Alright so I know there isnt much right now, but please let me know what you guys think. :-) i hope all these pictures come through lol. My first time using IMGUR.

Have a great day!! OYA!!

-M

Greetings Everyone!!!

First i apologize for the double post, but seeing how its been a week since ive posted and am adding new pics that it would be okay. If not then if a Mod could please combine the posts to make it in compliance.

Second, if a Mod could please move this thread to the legacy area for me it would be much appreciated. I didnt realise that i didnt put it in that area. Unless of course this thread is fine where its at then NVM... lol

Okay so on to pictures!!

So ive dont some templating this week for my guantlets and chest. I've decided i wanted to try out the other legacy template that is offered by the club. After printing it out and trying it on (pics below) i really liked how it looks.  I also found some material i wanted to use for a sash that i think it spiffy looking.

First up will be the guantlets :-) I got the sizing i wanted and then i decided i thought it would look cool with a layered armor effect like the chest and back will be.






Next up is the sash material and then me trying it on with the new templates.




Okay so as of right now i know i need to trim the chest template way down, but i think ill get it to work. :-)
Also, i know it is hard to see, but is that an acceptable neck seal?? its on i made a long time ago for a halo costume i made.

Thanks so much for continuing to join me on this journey.

Hello!! its met again, sorry for not posting for the past few weeks. Life has been a little busy and ive also been a part slacker lol.

So ive gotten a pretty good amount done i feel.

Cut out the chest, back, and forearm pieces and molded them. did most of the front by myself but then had some friends fix those and help mold the back at an armor party with had on the 21st.

On to picstures!!





now for the back pieces i know i need to lower the a little more, and ill be doing that and testing it before i permently attach them.






So that all i have for now, i know it isnt really a whole lot but at least im making progress :-)

Any comments or concerns are welcome.

Thanks so very much!!

Hello Vode!!

So another update for my mando build :-)
Finished the guantlet closer method i decided on. Also made a kama and loincloth, and got some boot gaiters from ebay. Not %100 sure ill use them as of yet, but we shall see :-)

Gauntlets!!







Kama and loincloth






Boot Gaiters





I've also decided to scratch the sash idea for this build (for now) and go with a rope girth belt. i started working on that last night but forgot to take pics of it. Sooooo that pic will be posted next time :-)

I am in the middle of moving and should be done by next week so ill be posting after that.
Thanks for viewing and tagging along. Any comments and concerns please let me know :-)

Wow, this is impressive ner vod! You're really going the completely self-made route! I was too unsure of my skills to do that lol, but I am highly impressed with your progress. I love the leather Spats! I wish I could do that, I need some holsters and a trophy hanger but have not the slightest idea on leather work.
Awesome build so far, vod. (sorry that I haven't commented before, I didn't realize that this was your thread lol)

Yeah I figured I'd give making my first sit a try lol.  As far as what I'm making, the spats for the boots and my helmet I've bought. I keep forgetting to take a picture of my helmet too lol. But the armor, vest, and kama are all me lol.
No worries! Thanks for commenting!

Thanks so much for all the kind words!!

Im sorry for such a late response and update everyone. Holiday season has been busy :-)

so made some progress on my girth belt and armor. I also started building a melee weapon too :-)

BELT:
Front
Back

ARMOR:
Templating shoulder armor for myself
attached the plates to the front, im digging how its coming along
Attached the back plates as well. Im debating on if i want to add the lower piece as well. I love the way everything is coming together too.
I dont have pics of it, but i can take the armor on and off as one piece :-)

MELEE WEAPON:




How tall weapon will be. Im 5' 10.5"

So this is where im at currently with the weapon and build. Ive been a super slacker due to holidays lol.
Should be back on track now though and posting more. :-)

Thanks so much for watching!!

Greetings Vode!

So figured id post a little update. I tried on y armor and took some pics. i dig how its coming together. Well while looking at the pics i thought maybe i could make a color scheme that im planning on doing. My fiance took the pics and put them into photoshop and did the scheme i told her i was thinking about and this is what we got. I dig it a lot since ive been wanting to go this route for a while. But figured id get on here and share and see what you guys thoughts were. :-)



This is just concept right now and i still have more to add to my whole kit.
Thanks for looking!!
