I found a whole Fett Family, they made their suits out of foam and papermache. the coated it with fiberglass. they used a metal mesh for the visor. still a nice job on their behalf.



These guys did a fantastic job! Looks like you had a great time!

Well, it looks like I will be starting a new set of armor in the next week. I'll make a tutorial on how i am going to do the paint and the rust look on this next set, some of you are interested in how I did it. All my secrets will be yours!!!

As cool as the boots are I have to ask; are you going to weather them.  They look so shinny that you can't help but think they are brand new.  Course you could leave them as brand new and make up a back story about a shoeless man now walking around Tantooine or some other desert local.   Just an opinon...take it with a grain of salt

I take all your guy's opinions and suggestions as serious suggestions on helping me improve my suit, so thank you for your imput. well in pictures, yeah, they do look pretty new, but in person, i think you can tell they are older an worn. they are old boots and i wear them even when I'm not in costume because, well, I just like them ;D also, they may look a little clean, but i think they match those leather straps i have on my biceps, it sort of carries the leather look throughout the costume.

OK, so i worked on a second set of armor about a month ago and never uploaded pics, Im just going to do a few progress photos on here. I know these pictures are on my rust armor tutorial, but from here on out, it will be just progress photos.  It probably wont be done for a few months, but what ever  :P

I drew up a quick concept  pick for what I am going to be makin'


here is most of the finished armor. I used the same shoulder insignia as my Green set and i wrote 'Vode an' (meaning 'Brothers all' in mandalorian) on the left chest plate in red paint. most of the rust is in the same places on both sets.


My gun belt>


The bucket>>> 2 piece Rubies Jango bucket. has 4 red lights over the left eye, a spot light on the side, and some green and blue lights in the right ear piece. I saved the old visor and just put some car window tint over it.


before I taped off all the extra lights, I took this picture, I call it DISCO MANDO


Here is the finished back plate, the thing on the armor was the turret for a toy Abrams Tank

Wow I just love your armor. It keeps getting better and better. I especially love the boots and spurs. I am liking the second set. It looks like a great concept. Question- What is the gun belt for your new set of armor made out of? Is is vinyl or pleather or something like that? It looks kinda like leather, but not. It looks like it might be easier to work with too. Love your stuff!!
