Okay - Soft parts are officially DONE, with the exception of weathering :P  **Forgive the imgur link, BOTH photobucket and flickr are not letting me access my photos right now.**  :-[  I'm still missing my knees (need straps or Velcro) and gaunts (need final paint and closures), but at least I have my iron heart now.

Good Progress This Weekend
Aaaaand... BOOM! This is about, 85% of it. Missing diamond, gaunts, knees, kama, gaters, and backplate (which needs trimming and reshaping.  BUT... PROGRESS!!!

I've had the sash/loin/kama cut and zigzagged for a couple of weeks. This weekend was about Velcro, hemming my vest, and more Velcro:

2017-01-16 - Another Mini Update
Knife is now done - and I absolutely LOVE how this has turned out. Used a flat brick red primer, then added the mottled paint with three colors of acrylic. Little trial and error to give it the look of polished wood. Finally sealed it with a clear coat and used Pledge furniture polish.  It seemed to do the trick.

2017-01-15 - Mini Update
So today I finished my shoulder bells and got the accent color on my gauntlets.

Did some work on my boot knife by sanding down the very sharp edge, to make it more troop friendly

Not pictured... cut my chest diamond (finally) and painted the accent color.

2017-01-11
Back Plate now has the contrast chevs on it -- but when i was lining up my neck piece, to get the right starting points for the chevs on the back... I realized that the back plate is much wider than my neck plate. So, I'll be trimming down at the shoulders then tapering it in so it's got a nice curve. Hopefully not having to do too much painting on the edges.

And the "DONE" picture shows how crappy the lighting is in my house. Hahaha

DONE:

Thanks to ALL who input on the green highlights! I really love the way it came out (except for that bit in the last photo.  maybe it was a really BIG blaster shot! lol
Oh, and it should be noted that most of the masking hasn't been removed yet. So there will be more chips and what not on the green ridges.

2016-12-05 - YES... that there is the first weathering and first coat of paint!!!
First coat of the primary color. Managed to get MOST of the paint on the beskar'gam, instead of me this time. Though a vod pointed out that I sprayed it on too thick, so it's taking forever to dry. But... live and learn. :)  Still... progress!!!
(http://i864.photobucket.com/albums/ab207/lady_saphyre/Mando%20Stuff/EA3EAA63-5CF9-4E1F-9331-EC5C1D5AA45B_zpsedicohah.jpg) (http://s864.photobucket.com/user/lady_saphyre/media/Mando%20Stuff/EA3EAA63-5CF9-4E1F-9331-EC5C1D5AA45B_zpsedicohah.jpg.html)

Used some liquid latex to paint on some dings and blaster shots, as well as some natural wear and tear where the plates may contact each other.

2016-11-16 - We have METAL!!!!
So, with the exception of one half of one clamshell gauntlet, which I cannot find right now, everything is primered, metaled (it's a word) and ready for clear coat.  Oh... and realized I don't have a chest diamond for some reason. I'm not happy with the knees, but I'm hoping to make them work for now and that will be my first upgrade.

Sooooo much sanding...
(http://i864.photobucket.com/albums/ab207/lady_saphyre/Mando%20Stuff/A18014E2-F6F0-4392-B6DF-72F086EFA358_zpsj3y2ga8v.jpg) (http://s864.photobucket.com/user/lady_saphyre/media/Mando%20Stuff/A18014E2-F6F0-4392-B6DF-72F086EFA358_zpsj3y2ga8v.jpg.html)

Primered... and more sanding, this time with the doggo helping.  Yes... primer... that helpful tool that shows you where you didn't quite sand as well as you'd thought.

2016-07-02 - Progress on Gauntlets and Knees
So, today I was able to get about 3 hours of solid work done on my kit. Now, stuff is setting up and drying, so... inside for some hydration and A/C.
By the way... Disturbed is GREAT to listen to when doing kit work... just throwin that out there.  Anyways... pictures:

Gauntlet with Comm System by Ter N Solo.  So, today I finished sanding the Bondo, and realized there were a number of gouges and spaces where I must've missed. Oops.  So, using my ever-present JB Water Weld epoxy putty, I filled in the oopsies. I didn't think I could quite pass them all off as battle damage.
(http://i864.photobucket.com/albums/ab207/lady_saphyre/Mando%20Stuff/AE77B5CE-2E36-45C8-9F11-D4C31320D600_zpsuwzactuu.jpg) (http://s864.photobucket.com/user/lady_saphyre/media/Mando%20Stuff/AE77B5CE-2E36-45C8-9F11-D4C31320D600_zpsuwzactuu.jpg.html)

Knees - using a simplified version of the Boba knees. It may be sacrilege, but I'm not going to do the dart casings... yet. :P
(http://i864.photobucket.com/albums/ab207/lady_saphyre/Mando%20Stuff/3C7E78AD-760A-41B4-88F3-DA2E5C67AD0A_zpsq79wfzgf.jpg) (http://s864.photobucket.com/user/lady_saphyre/media/Mando%20Stuff/3C7E78AD-760A-41B4-88F3-DA2E5C67AD0A_zpsq79wfzgf.jpg.html)

The gray is the Water Weld, you can see where I've used it to beef up the kneecap armor and fill in any gaps at the seams.
(http://i864.photobucket.com/albums/ab207/lady_saphyre/Mando%20Stuff/6050C791-D12D-4E15-A0B6-141099249F00_zpsmmtrlgmn.jpg) (http://s864.photobucket.com/user/lady_saphyre/media/Mando%20Stuff/6050C791-D12D-4E15-A0B6-141099249F00_zpsmmtrlgmn.jpg.html)

Lastly - a photo of all three beautiful things, now drying on my deck... in the shade, so the sun doesn't misshape the Sintra.

2016-06-13 - LOTS of updates

(http://i864.photobucket.com/albums/ab207/lady_saphyre/Mando%20Stuff/Shoulders%20Belly%20Knees_zpsfhuxxoum.jpg) (http://s864.photobucket.com/user/lady_saphyre/media/Mando%20Stuff/Shoulders%20Belly%20Knees_zpsfhuxxoum.jpg.html)

Okay so with the work done yesterday at my AP, I can now officially say that ALL of my armor pieces are cut, shaped and sanded.  With the exception of my knees - everything is primered. 

Vibropike is still on the list, but I do have a pair of Ter-n-Solo's Westar 38's that I'm working on, plus a vod gave me a really sweet wooden knife blank that I'll be using, ya know when ya gotta get up close and personal like.

I realize I haven't updated with pictures in a long ol while - but the chest plates are done (finally).  BUT, due to some happy circumstances, I have to rework my flight suit and vest, to take it in.  ;)

Today's offering:

Working on shaping chest plates. More difficult on Femandos, but definitely challenging on my body type. But, here you go.  Feedback is welcome!!

Front, full body:
(http://i864.photobucket.com/albums/ab207/lady_saphyre/Mando%20Stuff/62715517-E965-48BC-B06E-A871E504E9C1_zpsyttoafqs.jpg) (http://s864.photobucket.com/user/lady_saphyre/media/Mando%20Stuff/62715517-E965-48BC-B06E-A871E504E9C1_zpsyttoafqs.jpg.html)

Side - you can see where hubs formed them around a bit:
(http://i864.photobucket.com/albums/ab207/lady_saphyre/Mando%20Stuff/BA70BFE8-AC0A-40B7-957C-3D3785CE32CB_zpsghsp2wmk.jpg) (http://s864.photobucket.com/user/lady_saphyre/media/Mando%20Stuff/BA70BFE8-AC0A-40B7-957C-3D3785CE32CB_zpsghsp2wmk.jpg.html)

Closer view of the spacing. The gaps from the darts will be bondo'd and sanded:
{picture coming soon}

And close up... Oh oh too close, a little too close:

May want to just run those darts up a little more, that bottom edge is still floating a little. But, that looks very nice, and beautifully adapted to fit you (breasts are just a pain aren't they?)
Title: Re: Naritar Ka'ra - Mark 1
Post by: Malakier Vhett on Feb 27, 2016, 10:25 PM
Looks like it could use a little curve higher up, if possible from the bottom corner of the diamond cut out to the outside corner of the arm cut outs. Looks like you might have bit more give there, and would help the plates conform to your body better without having to mess with your darts much, if at all. I'll try to draw a line in paint or something to show what I mean.
You're close vod. Very close. Just a little more curve and you'll be golden

(http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c272/Spazsolo/Christi-armor.jpg)

Something like this. Will probably also need to tweak some other parts (curve the outside edge out, for example) as well.

Like I said, you're very close. Certainly the suggestion to increase your darts will work. It might even be easier. I personally just think this would look better.

Been awhile, but some small progress made tonight before I lost the light.

Ear caps sanded and glued. The darts on my now trimmed chest plates bondo'd in. And some trimming done on my gaunts.
(http://i864.photobucket.com/albums/ab207/lady_saphyre/Mando%20Stuff/5DEDCA10-D7B0-4B12-914B-E76EE6F6BFBA_zpsq5ygn9pa.jpg) (http://s864.photobucket.com/user/lady_saphyre/media/Mando%20Stuff/5DEDCA10-D7B0-4B12-914B-E76EE6F6BFBA_zpsq5ygn9pa.jpg.html)

Those 3 divots on the left side of your bucket, are they part of the stock helmet or did you add those yourself? Either way they look really cool. Dart launchers perhaps?

Great seeing your progress. Now keep it up. :)

They're stock on the TomVader Juggernaut.  When I had one, I had originally planned to rig mine up with LEDs for a cool effect before realizing I mix with electronics as well as cats mix with water.

Good idea. I had toyed with the idea of adding electronics, but at this point, I'm just going to finish and get OM. First upgrade to this kit is gonna be knees. Then I'll look at maybe adding some shinies whilst I plan my legacy beast tamer.

Regarding the contrast colors on your helmet, I think it would look good with a green face wrapping around the earcaps (not the earcaps themselves) across the band on the back. Maybe one or two of the arrowheads on the earcaps and "keyslots" in the same green, just to tie it to the stripes on your plates.

Dude!!! Talking about riding my brain wave!!! That's exactly what I was thinking about. I considered the T... BUT I want to do a mirrored green visor, so I think that'll do it for the front. So I moved on to the arrowheads... and I like the idea of around the earcaps. Awesome idea!

I thought about the full earcaps being green, but that's such a beautiful blue color (and well applied) that I hate to see it covered up. Plus you don't have a lot of green going on the rest of the kit so outlining I think fits the whole better. Just forget I was the one that suggested it when you start masking all those corners and edges :D

The green looks good around the earcaps and back ridge. And don't sweat the tape pulling off your paint. I had that happen to me too. Just give it a black wash and call it battle damage.

Yup that's the plan.  Seems like all the incidental / accidental battle damage happens on the right side. *snicker*  And good job suggesting it - I really do like the new look. I'll strip off the rest of the latex when I get home tonight. Then the only thing I'm missing is gaunts and my chest diamond.  Jeez... how do I STILL not have a diamond. Hahaha.  I'm actually considering making two, and using one as an every day necklace.  :o

Do the Humpty Bump.

Okay couple of mini updates over the last week. After some killer progress last weekend (three-days FTW), it slowed down a bit, since I'm getting home after dark.

Basically all that's missing armor wise is the gauntlets... please don't mind my rambling to do list

- gluing the hinges and letting the E6K do it's magic
- cut slots for buckle webbing, rough sand the slits and hit with some metallic if needed (buckles are painted, will need to hand sew the   
   webbing, most likely)
- main color paint (maybe green chevs on right?? wait and see)
- remask left and flat black on comm system
- hand paint comm sys for more color?? how have people done their comm sys?
- sand, black wash, trail dust, clear coat

aaaand DONE. :P

I'm hoping so. My rather generous project planning spreadsheet has me at about 22 more hours to complete. So, like you said, if I can keep the momentum, I'll be ready by Sunday.

In other news, Tythim is going to be taking pre apps sometime in the next day or two. So proud of my ad'ika.

Welp, for two nights now, plans to work on kit have been derailed. GRRR. Anywho... slowly but surely, little progress is being made.

1. Have the edging of my two kama pieces pinned in place, just need to run them through my new machine.

2. Last night I trimmed off about 2 inches on either side of my backplate, so it should match more closely to my collar. Thankfully, didn't screw up any of the paint. So now it's just a matter of finishing the now-white edges. Also need to reform the sides, and make it more form fitting. It's not quite there.

YUSS!!! That sounds like an awesome plan - I'm free every night this week.  I've already hit up Kyramla to take pics, and have been talking to Malakier about some additional weathering of the kit. But it would be awesome to have you and Mirdala over as extra hands. :)  (this is why I love my clan and this club)

I need to grind some grime into my softs tonight, get the velcro on my backplate. Gonna knock out some spats and prob some quick boot armor for my toesies, and I should be good to go. With the ad'ika finishing my accent colors on my Westars (which I need to weather a bit)... I'm super excited to see some 100% DONE's on my project tracker. OH, and I want to add some lyrics to one of my favorite songs on my backplate... then cover with another wash. But that's minor stuff - just to give it a bit more artistry and uniqueness.

Alright another mini update:

Still to do:
1. Foam in bucket, add comm sys and fans
2. Velcro on vest - Thought I was done with this last night, but remembered this morning, I need to add Velcro to the fangs of my chest pieces. Minor fix which I can do tonight.
3. Weather soft parts - Will start on this tonight. I considered leaving it all outside with the dogs... but thought better of it.
4. Paint / weather boot armor - primered and metallic done. Tonight, mask and first coat of the primary color. I'm keeping with the yellow for the small armor pieces.
5. Make gaters  Decided to go with wraps instead.
6. Finish 2nd Westar - This just needs a little bit of paint, on the accent colors. And R&B on the nozzle. Then blackwash both.

Finished primary painting on my boot armor. Blackwash time.

To do list:
Blackwash: Weapons, boot armor
Weather: Flight Suit, Vest, Gloves, Sash/Kama
Make Boot Wraps

I get your frustration with things moving around as you take pictures. I thought Mirdala was going to blow a vein in her head getting mine all straightened out. Move one thing and something else slides out of place. It happens to all of us.

You're still bringing your kit this weekend, right? Based on the pre-app comments it looks like you're just down to placement and spacing issues. I'm making this my mission this weekend. If you can get all the physical fixes done (weathering, etc), I'll make sure we get you squared away at the con. Its not the best environment but we'll have plenty of eyes and hands to get the best pics possible.

Thanks, vod. Yeah it's been a bit *rawr* recently. Of course, I get what all the feedback is, and totally understand this is the whole reason for doing pre-apps. And I'm down with that 100%.

Kryamla is coming over again tonight, and we'll take as many pictures as we can before we lose the light behind the suburbs at 6. Haha!

I fully intend to bring the kit to WonderCon. So, if need be, I'll take you up on the offer.  My biggest stressor right now is the fact that as of Sunday night, my kit will be out of my possession until we get to Florida. So it's this week, or not until after C8.

**Open note to all my clan-mates** If you know me well, you know that I can be a sarcastic di'kut, especially when I'm frustrated. But, know that I have the utmost respect for all of you, your suggestions and your dedication to our club. Thank you for seeing me through these last agonizing steps of this amazing journey. *hugs*

Oh, somebody else with a breast shelf that causes the collar and chest plates to look like they're overlapping when there's a good gap between them. I know that feeling all too well. Tweaking the position of mine for days I was. If the bathroom mirror could talk I'm quite sure it would have got to the point of just sighing in frustration at my continued posing :P The last set you posted in the pre-app thread look good to me.

Okay so here's the quandary. Aside from inacting the ancient torture of breast binding... how do I show

THIS GAP:
(http://i864.photobucket.com/albums/ab207/lady_saphyre/Mando%20Stuff/BE0D80F7-9C0A-4271-A8A2-708B7468AF01_zps1gk4is2f.jpg) (http://s864.photobucket.com/user/lady_saphyre/media/Mando%20Stuff/BE0D80F7-9C0A-4271-A8A2-708B7468AF01_zps1gk4is2f.jpg.html)

In THIS pose:

My son, who is 6" taller than me took the close up by holding the camera about 4" above my eye level. Standing 4 feet away from me, holding the phone up to get that same angle, is going to make the rest of me look out of proportion. Any suggestions from curvy Mandos, or those who've taken approved app pics of curvy Mandos?

Or should I just lop a 1/2" off the top of my chestplates so the gap shows from the frontal view? *exasperated sigh* :-\

Post by: Havelock on Mar 29, 2017, 12:04 PM
I have no advice for you, since the laws of physics and anatomy are sort of against you on this issue.  I can only offer words of encouragement - the App Team seems to be very responsive, and also very thorough.  When you submit your app, definitely include your WIP url.  I'm pretty sure they'll check it out, and having seen curvy women apply, they'll probably just double check your WIP to see that your spacing is correct, even though the official application photos don't show it, because, again, physics and anatomy. 

I'm pretty sure you'll be ok.   :D

Ensure the spacing is correct. This should be visible from the side view, the front will more than likely look to be overlapping a little. Then take one from higher view to show the gap from above breast shelf level - pass that last pic to a Ruus'alor (or any app members floating in your thread... looks around suspiciously) and we can add the extra angles to your app as there's not any extra space on the actual form.

I've also got a slightly larger gap between my collar and chest plates than between my other plates that helps with the illusion from the front view.

Then take one from higher view to show the gap from above breast shelf level - pass that last pic to a Ruus'alor (or any app members floating in your thread... looks around suspiciously) and we can add the extra angles to your app as there's not any extra space on the actual form.

I've also got a slightly larger gap between my collar and chest plates than between my other plates that helps with the illusion from the front view.

That's funny you should say that, Kris, because that's what I've done. :)  The two pictures I showed ^^^ back up there, were the two submitted to local pre app (which passed) & regional pre app (where my app is currently). And my Ruus'alore / local app team members have been AWESOME about getting feedback to me.

Early feedback I'm getting is that one response was that they'd prefer another frontal shot, where the gap is more prominently displayed. And I think the only way to show it would be to physically alter the plates, e.g. take off 1/4-1/2" from the top, to widen the gap that way. If I moved them down, they'd cut into the top portion of the ab plate. Hmm... trimming them may be good to do anyway.

At this point, I'm just trying to get ahead of the curve, in case a new picture needs to be taken - however, if you're saying we could add the close up as an addendum to the app pic submissions... then maybe new photos don't have to be taken.  \_(ツ)_/

Thank you so much for your feedback!

I had to send in a close up of the weathering on my pouches because it didn't show well in the app photos. You sending in a high angle showing the spacing shouldn't be any different. I agree with Kris, send it to one of the app team and ask that they attach it to your application.

Also add that shot to the first post in this thread so it will be easy to find when they check your WIP thread.

Great idea, MS!! That way, they're not slogging through posts and posts over the last year plus. I don't want to make it more difficult on our App Team... I know they have their hands super full right now, Mandalore bless them, every one!!

1. New backplate - segmented? Trim down sides, shorten bottom edge, more trapezoidal. Paint lyrics in Mando'a
2. Knees. Kneed I say more? Nay, I shan't!!!
3. Gauntlets - reshaping? Start from scratch? Or just bite the blaster and get April Storms.
4. Boot armor - need to figure out a better way of affixing to laces
5. Flight suit - need new pants
6. Bucket - Visor replacement & cleaner install of bucket electronics. Cut out vents in the back, as well as potential vents in cheeks.
