Ok here I go;

I am just going to put my ideas on the screen and fine tune it when I go on.

I am going for light armour, for now. The idea is to go to medium armour by increase the armour plates. The armour plates with be made from thermoplast materials and placed with velcron

The colours will be a dark green flight suit with matt black armour plates and dark iron colour there the paint chipped off. The amount of paint damage will be at a minimum. Once the armour is finished and approved I hope to join the Sniper brigade, so I have chosen these colours with that in mind.


This is an action figure made by Enix, I would like to try to get this feel of the Helmet for my mando Armour.



My primary weapon will be a sniper Rifle. I have found this weapon secondhand and will modify this to my sniper rifle, enlarge the scope, smooth up the weapon and off course a new paintjob. I also had this idea and a friend will help with this, to include a sound effect at the end of the barrel. I already opened the gun up and there is plenty of space for it. This way when I would aim a weapon for cosplay; the person on the wrong side of the barrel would hear the Blaster charge up.  :o



The first pair of gloves will be these. These are wintergloves but I know there are variants for warmer weather. I'll be looking for those too.



Further more I want to have 2 hip holsters, with interchangable pieces, so for the Sniper equipment 1 holster and a second hip pouch on the other side. I hope to get a holster in this style, also so that I can layer it with fake leather, or thermoplast pieces.



As for boots I have been looking around and I found some nice futuristic boots.



I will also work on a backpack to look as a communications pack. I will probably use a hardshell backpack to paint and modify



Futher parts with be equiptment with stuff like, foldable grapling hook with rope, a helmet camera that will really work, a small table modified into a bracer als a battle tac system. A voice changer device mounted into the helmet to sound more like boba fett, stormtrooper. I also have the idea to be able to place my sniperrifte to my armour by maglocking it to from chest and back plates

Offcourse I will modify all parts to remove brands and use thermoplast armour plates to camouflage parts.

So this is what I have come up with untill now, I will focus on getting the parts and making the armour vest so that I can get started with making paper plates for size and locations. So let me hear it, use tell me I am crazy and be done with it.  :P
