I found this acrylic which should do the job: http://www.delviesplastics.com/p/Fluorescent_Cast_Acrylic_Sheet.html Probably gonna get it in green, as it looks the most SW-sy.

Also think I'm going to nix the knife, and instead make or buy a pair of in-universe cuffs. Makes more sense for a jailer to have those, after all! Also gonna probably change things so both stun batons are on one hip, the whip on the other, and cuffs and key/pass cards hanging from the belt. (And a d-ring for hanging the helmet somewhere on there too..)

Sounds solid. Have you thought about incorporating a data slate into your gauntlets or on your hip as an extra? Jailers could keep track of their captives etc and have quick access to the info etc.

Much ideas, very like  :P The etched and lit cards are precisely what I had in mind. And yeah binder cuffs make more sense than lethal instruments like a knife, in the case of a jailer

My left gauntlet is going to be for communications-- I've got a few greeblies I think would work well (especially a tiny phone greeb that would make for a good-looking holo-projector). Not sure what you mean by a data slate, do you have any examples?

My thoughts exactly. The whole point of having all these weapons was so that, if by some chance a prisoner got one from the armor, they couldn't do any real damage. The knife was the only outlier, and having cuffs makes far more sense. Also convenient for jailing-and-bailing! :D

Jailing and bailing... I just pictured some very confused stormtroopers handcuffed to a lamppost  :laugh:

WOW SO OKAY WHOOPS. I do this thing where I don't update in forever.

I do have a job that pays me pretty well now though, so that helmet might be in my near future! \o/ Haven't made any other progress though.

So the good news is I heard back from NME props about the sizing on the Stalker Medium... the bad news is they think it might be too big since it's one of their biggest helmets. I've asked them if any of their helmets would fit someone like me, but it seems it's time to start looking for a backup. :C A sad development, because I really had my heart set on the Stalker, but I'd rather not look like a giant bobblehead while in armor. Alas!

Looking like a bobblehead really doesn't matter if you can kill with ruthless efficiency...

True, but I want my enemies to die by my hand, not from laughing themselves to death!

That being said, their Mercenary helmet is actually a bit smaller than my current, so I may go for that. I'd like to add some stuff onto it because I really love the look of the Stalker and all its doodads, but I'm not sure what I'd use to add on-- fiberglass, resin, etc. Defs not bondo, it'd crack if I dropped it...

You could cut some slots to insert sintra into for structure then bondo the fine parts... Might be a little complicated but that's what comes to mind.

Another thing you could do is a lowering blast shield or night-vis goggles. Both would be appropriate in a dark or dangerous jail, I'd imagine.

Using sintra is an idea, though I'd really rather not cut into any helmet I buy just because I'd haaaate to ruin all that good work. But a blast shield or night vis goggles could be interesting. I was just thinking of purely aesthetic changes, lol.

WHO HAS TWO THUMBS AND JUST ORDERED HER BUCKET?

MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

Since the Stalker would be too big, I ordered a Medium Mercenary since it's about the same size as a J2P. Also paid for visor install because I'm lazy and terrified of my band saw. >___> But should be here in 8 weeks from what the folks at NME have told me. In the meantime, can start working on drafting armor, soft parts, etc.

EXCITED. NO TURNING BACK NOW.

Better late than never I suppose. Here is a link to what I was envisioning for a jailer!

If the App Team doesn't like the taser setup as is, you might consider making taser-knuckleplates. You hit them, they'll go down every time.
