Title: Afos TaT's Ammo belt, Holsters & Kama Finished Pics..
Post by: Afos Redemption on Jan 10, 2010, 03:35 PM
So I am for the most part finished the soft parts of my Mando minus my Flack vest and wanted to show it off as I am quite happy with the results. I will have to put my progress on the rest of the costume on hold as I am going on operation for the next 3 months. The Flight Suit and Armour will be heavily weathered to match the rest but that will have to wait until the spring, also the M-DSB V2 Mercenary will be waiting for me by that time too. So if anyone is interested on what I used for this or how I achieved the look please feel free to ask or critique.

The Kama was made from my x girlfriends 3/4 length jacket. She was a pretty small girl and when cut almost straight across the back it reached around my waist perfectly. I added 2 pencil cases as cargo pouches and weathered the kit with sand paper in some areas, burning holes and the fringe with a lighter then spray painting highlights with brown/black and primer. Thanks for the complements brothers...

So what did you use for the jango style holsters material wise? That look is pretty wicked!

I ordered the holsters off ebay from Evolution, for the price the quality was surprisingly good. I heated them up with hot water and massaged them for a while to give them the wrinkled look, when they were still wet I put the westar 34's in the holsters and moulded them to the shape of the blasters. When they dried I dabbed them with black paint to give them the dirty weathered look. With a little trial and error I was able to intergraded them into the ammo belt using some of the hard wear that came with the set and a few nuts and bolts on the straps. Thanks for the complements, cant wait to complete this project in the spring...

Personally I lke to put the holster under the kama. I guess it is a personnal choice, but I like to use the kama to hide the main weapons.

I thought that myself vod. But I figured for this set up it would inhibit a quick draw, so I intentionally placed the holsters towards the front of the leg instead of the typical way on the side. I also figured it would give a different look instead of the standard Jango style. Vor entye Ner vod...

And another random question: What did you use for those ammo pouches?

I might be wrong but I'm assuming they are cell phone cases. But as I said I'm just guessing.

I thought that, and I have some, but oddly enough those little button type things on the flap make them look a lot better to me than the standard ones.

Good guess, they are cell phone pouches I picked up from the dollar store. I crunched them up real good and painted them to make them look older and a little used. The buttons are little metal name tags that I painted, also from the dollar store. The cool thing is that the pouched use magnets to fasten shut so the "buttons" just stuck to the pouches without any glue. I am planning on adding some more weathering to them with some acrylic paint. Thanks for the interest vod's...there will be more progress on the complete kit soon now that I am returning from my deployment.
