Kryamla’s Siege of Mandalore Bo-Katan

Obviously there are some spoilers ahead so avoid if you don’t want to see anything!

So! I already knew I was going to do this costume since last April but we now have references, thanks to the episodes. Eventually I will be doing the poncho but until I get out to a fabric store, that’s on hold.

My mom bought me a new NME nite owl helmet as a combo Christmas/bday present so I wouldn’t haven’t paint over my current one as I’d like to have both versions available to troop in. At first I thought it was just interchanging of pieces but after looking at the references, it seems that it needs to be an entirely new kit due to weathering and plate differences. I started with painting of the helmet and this is where I currently stand as I wait patiently for my tape to arrive.


Based off this image


(More detailed helmet wip pictures here: http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=189777.0)

Going to use these gloves (and matching fabric for the soft goods once I can order it) as it’s a very dark charcoal. I believe her soft goods are “animated black” meaning they’re actually a very dark, charcoal grey since black doesn’t really translate well in animation. 



I’ve ordered new 3D printed gauntlets and new 3D printed knees as they’re the same shape as the old season but again, weathered differently. I’m waiting for these to arrive still. I’ll likely have to wait until it’s safe to be around others again for the chest armor and boot armor so I can get some help with that. I do think I can start patterning out shins, thighs, and shoulders here soon enough.

As for pieces I do think I can use from my current kit, I think I can use my jetpack (might need to weather it a bit more), boots, belt set up (though she has 2 bigger pouches and 6 smaller pouches, so I’ll just need to order 2 slightly bigger pouches from DeltaLeatherWorks, if he can do them), blasters, wig, and headband. That’s all I have so far and this is definitely not a sprint, but more of a marathon :)

Oh yeah, I'm definitely in for watching this build :D. Judging by your current Bo, I've no doubt it'll turn out awesome.

So got a bit more work done over the last few days!

First, helmet! There’s some touch up work to do but I’m going to let this dry completely for 24 hours before I touch it. Circles are hard to tape, even with the flexible tape I use so that’s mostly where I need to go back and fix it by hand.




Second, I made templates based off my current shins and cut those out of sintra. It’s been way too hot here in SoCal to use a heat gun so hoping for somewhat cooler weather soon so I can shape these. (I’ve cut two out but I didn’t think to take a picture of both lol). I’ve never made shins before so we’ll see how this goes! My current bo kit is abs and only a few pieces of sintra plates, going to attempt to do most of this kit out of sintra!



And last! My 3D printed knees arrived! I’ve already slathered on some bondo spot putty to fill in the print lines. These ones are from my friend Brian’s Etsy shop (3DPrintMercMart) and they include this cool little thingy that slides in that you can add a strap or elastic around the back which is perfect because Bo-Katan has some blue straps around the back of her knee armor this season.





Well that’s all for now!

Thank you so much for the kind words so far!

I have some minor updates but no real pictures to show yet. I’m still working on sanding and spot putty-ing the knees, hopefully I’ll be ready for a bit of paint with those soon! I also received my new 3D printed gauntlets from my friend, Kai, and I already got to work cleaning those up.

I was looking through reference pictures and found this! I marked in red lines to show seams and such, but I believe her flak vest ends at the bottom of the belly plate and it also appears that she has “coveralls” (or similar) underneath and those lines are supposed to be a zipper flap/placket thing. Now obviously I couldn’t achieve a skin tight look with anything but a spandex/cotton type blend... Mirdala and I have a plan for how to achieve this look but still use a spandex material (we suspect Ursa has a similar look!)

Gotta love Filoni and his design team's attention to detail with the animated soft parts, eh?

Your helmet looks great!  :porg2:
