 First Armor : Ya'haal Rudo - Lagacy Togruta Armor - by Ashley

Greetings to all of you  from Puerto Rico! :sabine: :like:
This is my first armor . I have plans on making a Togruta Mandalorian , for this armor I'm going with legacy era  armor .
I've been taking my time in designing the armor with the help of my boyfriend Jules Delgado. There has been many design proposals and this is the final result .

The armor is being made by Jules , the materials used are steel and leather . We are still debating if we are gonna make the helmet out of steel or fiberglass. We still need to make/obtain the Togruta Lekku. The flightsuit will be white in color , the arming vest will be made out of blue leather , and the kama out of dark blue cloth , similar in color to the vest. The neckseal will be made out of the same material as the kama.

The armor will be polished and weathered . Some parts will be painted in a golden color and blue .
As you might be able to see we added a couple of floral elements in the design .

Armor Construction :






Note: Jules made the Chest Diamond out of plate brass , it was made via the method of "Repoussť and chasing"

Central Plate (Plate under the diamond and between the two chest plates )






 
Greaves+Knees :
For the greaves we decided to add the floral elements on the outer side of each greave and on the knee plate




Upper Thigh armor
These side plates will go on top of the kama. Jules added floral elements by hammering them out of the steel .



Plates




Test fitting :




More Updates will be coming soon !!
