 WIP- First Mando Build in honor of my SWTOR Character :)

  • 8 Replies

Hi All! I have cosplayed before but never as a Mando so I am very excited! Since NYC ComiCon was canceled I figured I had more time until the next one to complete this build. I will also be making mini sets for my children (ages 5 and 3) to go along.

So, I play the MMO Star Wars the Old Republic and want to make this build in honor of my main character who is a Mercenary in-game. Her Flight suit is fitted and all black. I am a HUGE DIY/Buy second-hand kind of person so I bought two pieces of Under Armor to combine as my flight suit.
Her main color/colors are dark green and her accents are yellow gold although this is negotiable to yellow/mustard yellow colors as well. I was actually inspired by a nail polish (of all things) to make her palette- Paragon by F.U.N. Lacquer.




I have extra fabric from my Kylo Ren attempt ($40 for the bolt, never finished) to make caplets for myself and my kiddos. I have theirs pieced together from scraps already and I love the look. I don't want them to match me exactly but I think it it cute to have something between us that is coordinated.



So I got this womens XL jacket from the thrift store ($14), just a muted version of the green I want, and I plan on quilting it for stability ($5 for the HeatNBond fusable interfacing) and putting ties on the sides.

Here are some updated photos of my vest. Thanks to my dear friend (Paxi) Who commented on my 0P, Because I bother her with every little detail, Because apparently I need a bunch of emotional support to make these decisions because apparently I need a bunch of emotional support to make these decisions  ;D I have cut lined and wilted the best and I am now working on the back of the vest.
Just to share a little personal detail I am also working on my namesake Sith Lord build- on the back of my cape I added a small detail that means a lot to me. I play and stream the PC game Star Wars the old republic and within that game there is a flashpoint called “The Nathema conspiracy”. Send that flashpoint you can earn decorations for your in game house, One of them being a beautiful statue which has an art deco style base. Being a New Yorker I’m very proud of where I’m from in art deco is a huge part of the cities architectural history. So to make my cape more personalized I put that Nathema statue design on the back of my cape, And since it will be covered by my armor and capelet I am adding the small detail to my Mandalorian as well.
