Right on! Looks like you got your gauntlets from same guy as me on the dented helmet cruzer. Also, jet pack harness was easy to make if you need any pointers. I have some photo references I used to make mine. And if you need the aluminum pieces for the gauntlets let me know and I’ll tell you where I got mine.

Yes, they're Cruzer gaunts from a guy getting rid of his Jango. And thanks so much, ner vod, but I've got everything covered. Getting my harness and metal pieces from Seeker and Darkside on TDH. However, if you have any advice on the knees (not the knee darts), I'd really appreciate it.

On a small note, everything except the guns (which are agony) has been thoroughly sanded down, but I'll probably need to do more sanding with the other grits.

Neither. I'm making them from sintra.

Ah ok. Best thing to do there is get the patter file on the forum and make them that way. I would make them as accurate as possible. You want the front areas of the knees to be round and everything. If you look at my post under my build you can see closeup of how mine look when done.

Okay, vode, I need to know what- if anything- I have to do to get this vest right.



The flaps seem too big, though they're hand-sewn on, so taking them off and changing them shouldn't be too difficult.



Another vod told me the arm holes are too big.



And while I am a girl, I'm just adding the Jango pic to help with perspective and ideas. Need feedback on all this! Thanks.

I don't think the arm holes are too big.  Can you move your arms around in them comfortably without any tugging?

The flaps do look large on you.  Currently, they come down too far, and I'm concerned they would eclipse the double sleeve on your flightsuit.

Additionally, the neck opening on your vest looks to be a little wide and I might suggest lengthening the vest all together as it will need to tuck into your waist items, unlike Boba where there is a gap there.

Yes, I can move my arms comfortably.

I'm not sure about the length. My Ruus'alors always tell me that my torso plates and vest should stop just above my belly button, and that's where the vest stops. So...?



(And here's what it looks like with the flight suit)

Your Ruus'alore are correct, if you were doing a Boba, or standard custom Mandalorian.  Jango is different in that the vest tucks into the waist items and I'm concerned where your vest stops is too high so when you put everything all together we're going to see flightsuit, which is not correct for Jango.

Do you plan on lightening the color your flightsuit?  It looks rather dark at the moment.  The "blurple" can be a tough color to get right, but I think you would be on the right track

Gotcha. Waiting on the seller's feedback on fixing the vest.

It was made to my measurements, so why it's so off is beyond me.

And I don't know why the flight suit is so dark since Bobamaker is pretty reliable on accurateness. Still, I have no idea how to dye it. Never dyed anything before, let alone something this complicated.

Hmm. Might just be the lighting in the room then as far as the flightsuit is concerned.

Might benefit to take a picture outside in natural lighting.

When I can, I will. And I'm gonna send the vest back to the seller so she can fix it, along with some armor templates so she can scale things right.
