Where to start?
« on: Apr 06, 2020, 08:15 PM »
So Iím slightly financially ready to start my project. Iíve found a helmet and a likeness I want to go with. Iím wanting something similar to the Death Watch on the Mandalorian or the Mandalorian itself. But where do I start? Helmet first, then armor. Does it have to be an exact DW? Here is the helmets I found by Iron Forge.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated as Iím new to this whole process.

As I understand it, if youíre going for similar, it needs to look different enough that itís clear itís not the original inspiration (swapping color placement, etc).


Iím working on my helmet first because I still need to acquire soft goods.

RC nailed it. If you aren't doing a canon costume, your custom needs to be different enough to not be mistaken for it, more inspired by. Also note that the armors from The Mandalorian don't have CRLs yet, so plan your build, go slow, and prepare to make a change or two as rules come to light
