So I am for the most part finished the soft parts of my Mando minus my Flack vest and wanted to show it off as I am quite happy with the results. I will have to put my progress on the rest of the costume on hold as I am going on operation for the next 3 months. The Flight Suit and Armour will be heavily weathered to match the rest but that will have to wait until the spring, also the M-DSB V2 Mercenary will be waiting for me by that time too. So if anyone is interested on what I used for this or how I achieved the look please feel free to ask or critique.

The Kama was made from my x girlfriends 3/4 length jacket. She was a pretty small girl and when cut almost straight across the back it reached around my waist perfectly. I added 2 pencil cases as cargo pouches and weathered the kit with sand paper in some areas, burning holes and the fringe with a lighter then spray painting highlights with brown/black and primer. Thanks for the complements brothers...

So what did you use for the jango style holsters material wise? That look is pretty wicked!

I ordered the holsters off ebay from Evolution, for the price the quality was surprisingly good. I heated them up with hot water and massaged them for a while to give them the wrinkled look, when they were still wet I put the westar 34's in the holsters and moulded them to the shape of the blasters. When they dried I dabbed them with black paint to give them the dirty weathered look. With a little trial and error I was able to intergraded them into the ammo belt using some of the hard wear that came with the set and a few nuts and bolts on the straps. Thanks for the complements, cant wait to complete this project in the spring...

Personally I lke to put the holster under the kama. I guess it is a personnal choice, but I like to use the kama to hide the main weapons.

I thought that myself vod. But I figured for this set up it would inhibit a quick draw, so I intentionally placed the holsters towards the front of the leg instead of the typical way on the side. I also figured it would give a different look instead of the standard Jango style. Vor entye Ner vod...

I might be wrong but I'm assuming they are cell phone cases. But as I said I'm just guessing.
