Acklay Killer Post-imperial Mando WIP (heavy pics)
« on: May 10, 2021, 02:04 AM »
*EDIT : THE SIGIL WAS MODIFIED TO AVOID CONFUSION WITH AN OTHER MEMBER DESIGN*
Hello Vodes.

I am from Reunion Island, a French island located in the Indian Ocean just next to Mauritius and south-east of Madagascar.
I have already made several mandalorian costumes including that of Bo-Katan for my wife (I will soon do a special post on it).

My new goal is to level up and make a post-imperial mandalorian costume that could be approved by this group.
I went on the shoulders and the Foreman helmet from Alter Ego Armory, because I really like his designs. The files are also very easy to print.





The chest armor is a classic Gunslinger.







Initially I wanted to go on a blue / gray / white colors scheme then when testing Montana's "Pegasus blue" color, I decided to change and go with this color combined with an orange-yellow and white patterns. Here an idea of the concept on Mando Creator (not exactly the same helmet from AEA) :



So, I wondered what creature could be associated with these colors and I thought the Acklay (a big praying mantis which is a bit in these shades of colors) could match.




I added the letters "AK" for Acklay Killer on the chest and put an Acklay sigil on the right shoulder.







The next step will be the helmet which is being printed.
Thank you for watching !  :D

HI.
Thank you for the kind comments.
A first test of the top of the costume on a sewing mannequin to get an idea of the overall look.
I added the Death Watch style shoulder straps and I used the cape and belts from my ESB Boba Fett costume that I was never able to finish.
I am thinking of using another smaller leather belt on which I will put 4 to 6 pouches maximum.
Currently, I am working on the backplate armor and printing the Djin Djarin's hips armor.
I still have Bo Katan's shin armor left to print as well.
