WIP my partners upcomming kit
« on: Nov 06, 2018, 06:40 AM »
Hello all,
my partner descided that she wants to become mandalorian ( OYA! )  - didnt even have to persuade her :)  - so we started up during the weekend to try to get some idea on what kinda look she wants.

This is where we are so far. She is narrow over the sholders so it might look a bit short on the collarpiece. The collarpeice is also quite big so we are thinking about doing it in two pieces  but its gonna be a 3-d- upside down V on it  also, it shows poorly on the photo but if you look closer it will be seen.  She is also pretty short and well endowed so we are struggling with the armor. The abplate will as you see be in three parts that are fixed to eachother.

As for the helmet she wanted a combination of a modern and night owl so we did a quick mock-up. Its my bucket so its way to big for her so the photo doesnt show the actual size on it - it will be smaller.



Any kinda input and advice is useful and really wanted :)

Bīkal.

I think it is a great so far. Remember, the vest is going to need some well-measured tailoring in order to fit the plates on the body comfortably and maintain a well-fitted shape.

Progress so far - some final fixing with the plates to make a good fit but we are getting there :)

Very nice shape on the plates you've got there. Bit of tweaking will probably be needed on the spacing once the vest is made but it shouldn't be much.

However... from one well endowed person to another - take the points off the bottom of the chest plates and lessen the downward points on the collar. Pointy bits catch on everything and that can lead to easily snapped plates or shifting when you don't want it. The chest points may also get annoying if you bend - the spines natural place to bend is at the stomach/under the breasts, so having them go too far down will leave them digging in if you bend too far.

Here is were we are at the moment, after some consulting thereīs gonna be additional small pieces just under the shoulderarmour to give it a "better" look but i though i would show you the colours that she wants and a sneakpeak on were she wants it to go :)

We hope you like it

Looking good!

Heads up, you'll have to paint those rivets to match the armor  :like:

Jenga,
 Thank you :) The bolts are gonna be cut down in thickness and painted in the colour surrounding them when we are all done with all the plating :) ...
