WIP - Bo-Katan Live Action
« on: Feb 07, 2021, 01:15 PM »
Iím a sucker for punishment - I always used to tell myself that I would only build one project at a time. But when I saw Bo come on screen in the Mandalorian, I abandoned that completely. Because of the complexity of this kit and my health problems this year, I have ended up buying most of it.

My flight suit and flak vest should be ready in April; my buckles are CNC machined metal and hopefully will be done at the same time. I have a friend crafting my belt, half chaps (sorry, horse person so thatís the best I can think of them), holsters and pouches out of leather for me. My backplate and jetpack are being completed and should hopefully be done in the next month or two. Iím just waiting on those.

Friday, my bucket, armor and shoes came in. I chose the ABS route for my armor and resin for my bucket. It fits like a glove, and Iím so excited to start sanding and finishing it.





Shoes were tough to find; they look like work boots but I really didnít want to spend $130 on boots Iíll only wear a couple of times a year. The black paddock boots I bought for my rebels bo kit seem pretty close in tread, but the brown model has been discontinued so I couldnít get them. Which stinks, because they are really comfortable. I found these at DSW and they are pretty comfy too. If they arenít right, Iíll wear them for work😂




Now itís time to find the right paint colors! I bought some duralumen to use as a base for the silver and I have some different blues to try. Weíll see.

Iíll be curious to see which Bo is done first, ahaha. They may cross the finish line at the same time!

Who is making Bo Katan abs armor? Since I dislike 3d prints that's a nice option.

I got this one from Jsin Props. I originally was only going to buy the chest, ab, backplate and jetpack (after I finally print the jetpack for my rebel bo at the correct size, I will never print a jetpack again, lol) and print the rest, but when I saw the rest of the armor after he pulled it, I decided to buy it last minute. Iím 5í4Ē and this stuff seems like it was made for me. Itís awesome.

Thanks! Goldencat was nice enough to share this on her WIP, so this is what I used for reference. I definitely welcome any and all reference photos though! Iím curious about the piece of leather across the toe; it should be easy enough to add if it is needed.

Looks like there is some sort of leather spat or cover over top of the boot and the armor plate there.

I definitely see that; but in front of the spat/gaiter/half chap there seems to be one 1Ē  leather band that is attached to the boot. Or am I seeing it incorrectly? Iíve marked it in red.

Iím going to have to do more research on this strap thing. In some shots it looks like it goes over the boot and in others it looks like it only goes part of the way. Iíve been digging through references and her feet are not in many shots  :porg2:

Thank you so much! Haha yeah, they sure arenít very helpful with that; we got a good shot of Koskaís but hers, not so much!

Got the visor cut out and it makes such a difference. I really want to start sanding and priming it. It is so hard to only be able to sit for a limited time due to my back. So thankful for friends who help with some of the harder stuff.

Thanks!

Our clan has started virtual armor parties every month, and at least that is some motivation 😂 I used the time to start sanding the edges of some of my armor. Got the thigh and shins done and primed, yay!





Iím going to try and keep sanding so I can keep painting. I really want to start moving again!

Much appreciated! They really are great for it. I am not sure yet which I hate more, sanding 3d prints or ABS. I think itís 3D prints for the win though. For instance, there is no rhyme or reason where my shoulder bells should be sanded back too, haha. I had done about all my body could handle though, so Iíll work on it tomorrow.

Paying for it today, my back is killing me, but oh well. Maybe my injections this week will help. Iím going to keep trying to work on it little by little.

I need to keep reminding myself that, haha.

I sanded my chest plate and primed it. Going to try and get them all done before I start painting.



Itís much easier to do this than deal with trying to print the backplate and jetpack for my rebels bo 😂😂
