Aaaaaaaand hereís the boots I plan to use! https://sta.sh/21grns8juemk?edit=1
These are my riding boots, so theyíre nice and weathered already! Iíll have some shin armor and a fabric/leather wrap to cover the zipper and logos.

Stash is being a pain so Iíll go back to using discord tomorrow for images.

Those look good, the zipper should be pretty easy to cover.

Yep, thatís what Iím hoping!


Question: is Amazon an ok place to get sintra? Also can I get away with using a scrub jacket for the shirt of my flight suit?

The one time I got sintra I had my alor'ad pick some up for me, but Amazon should be fine. And yes, a scrub jacket should work, it will probably need a few modifications but it should be doable.

Ok. Just wanted to check, since Amazon can be... less than good quality sometimes XD
For the jacket, what kind of modifications would be needed? never mind, Iím making my own flight suit! Iíve ordered the shirt pattern and I have the pattern for the pants already. Iíll be making a Joanneís run next weekend, once I know what kind of fabric I need and how much.

Plan for this week: (and the next few)
- buy fabric for flight suit
- buy fabric for girth sash, bracer attachment, and boot wraps
- ask about various flak vest styles and the benefits of each (material and quilted vs unquilted, specifically)
- find material for kama
- buy some belt pouches
- figure out the method Iím going to use for prop-making (especially blasters)

Long-term plans:
- figure out what type of helmet (material, finish, etc)
- find a paint brand and start figuring out which colors I want
- order sintra
- get plain black gloves
- make or print or whatever armor templates
- holsters???
- big olí staff weapon (plan)
- big olí staff weapon (make)

Thatís all for now, I think!

How hard would it be to modify gaiters/half chaps to hold armor (as opposed to making my own wraps)?

Bump for my last question, since Iím going fabric shopping today and donít want to buy things if Iím not going to use them!

Edit: ended up not buying fabric today.

Built a mock up chest plate instead! Iíll add the side prong thingies and the ab plate tomorrow. Itís a bit wide, but at least Iím figuring this stuff out now!

Added a chest diamond to the cardboard mock-up today! Hoping to also do the prongy things and ab plate this afternoon. Making slow but steady progress!
Soft parts update: I have patterns but have not yet gone fabric shopping.

Edit: I have mostly completed the cardboard chest plate v1!
Sizing is wonky, it relies heavily on tape, and my shirt looks really weird because of it, but I can move! And it looks decent!

Edit 2: did some glue fixes and a bit of trimming so it looks better, but itís not enough to be worth another pic.

Does anyone know what post-imperial backplates look like???

Loving your cardboard mockups!

The backplate question is something Iíll have to look into, tooÖ I found this post with a few references, but theyíre all covered by capes or jetpacks. I'll be checking out Din Djarin and Armorer builds to see what theyíve done, and keeping an eye out for reference shots during another watch of the show. Does anyone else have more references?

Thanks!
Yeah, reference images seem hard to come by, and the CRLs donít say much about back plates. I havenít had time to do a lot of digging, but Iíll post any decent reference images here!

Iím considering doing a full cardboard practice build while Iím waiting on my soft parts? Itíll be good to start figuring out stuff, I think. Backplate aside, I think I can do it! Although the shoulders will be interesting since... cardboard isnít rounded  :laugh:

The cardboard sounds like a good idea to get a feel for sizing! Though putting a bunch of darts in the cardboard shoulder should prove to be interestingÖ  :laugh:

Oh, about the backplate! Iíve been looking around and found that Yadsmood put together a great research thread for his Din Djarin build, including an impressive set of V1 and V2 references. There is a screenshot of the beskar backplate in the V2 references under the flightsuit category, and there is a good handful of durasteel backplate screenshots in the V1 references. Also, Rayne did a great build with the Armorer, showing some reference photos as well as the final backplate she made. Good stuff!

Hmm... so it looks like any vaguely back-shaped plate thatís the right size works? XD
Iíll probably try going more Armorer-style for my backplate, it looks more comfortable.
