Jedi robe? --> Jedi Mando?    That's the first thing that crossed my mind, ner vod. I LOVE everything, but I hope there are altercations planned for the robe....  well, if the App team thinks it's too close to jedi mando, that is.

Especially lovin' the gaunts and verp.  :)

Thanx for comments guys, as for naasad being a jedi mando, hes only force sensitive, full jedi mandos are not allowed by the crls. I guess with the hood  & the colors of my kit my jacket does bare a resemblance to a jedi robe but its not...My guys a gunslinger/assassin who works mainly in the desert & the jacket is a duster with a hood (see the first pic on the first post for my original inspiration)

Again, thanx for the comments & I hope to have more pics up soon

Thanx for looking,

Chris

Why is it every time someone see's a robe they think Jedi...
First off it has no arms/sleeves, second why is it only Jedi can wear robes?
Where is this rule written?
Do you see a light saber?
Do you see him waving his hand?

Lets all work together to get over this ridiculous stereo type.

Chris You have done an amazing Job when I saw the picture with the robe I thought WOW! That Looks Cool! you continue to out due yourself as always. Keep up the good work you Kit is looking amazing and you'll be Official in no time. "even with the robe"

I thought, "hooded trench vest" first, actually. But Solus has a point.

My favorite part is definitely your gauntlets. I was considering something like that earlier, and now that I've seen yours, I'm pretty set on that idea. Keep up the awesome work! :)

I'll disagree with Thomas and Corr... first thing I thought when I saw it was Jedi-Mando... mostly because of the hood and the color. It reminds me of the deviant art pic of the hooded Mando with the lightsaber eveyone on Facebook likes to recolor as their RP character.

Overall, I think it looks really good however, I definatly think it's too fabric heavy.

IMHO I would ex the hood but thats up to you. At least take a few inches off the bottom of the coat. And add one of those slits in the back at the bottom to give it a more trench coat look.
Other than that its looking good.

The pick is the "arctic assassin" pic from deviant art (its in the first post on this thread), but I think as it was suggested originally A'den that, ive added my own flair to the design, as for the colors, im in the desert gotta do desert-y colors

I appreciate all the feedback so far, keep it coming guys!

He posted here for all to see so there  :P

I understand the idea of using fabrics for a variety of things such as enviromental camo. However, a straight cut, singleo color cloak wouldn't do that as well as something multicolored. I also understand the use of it to keep cool. However, 1 in Arizona except for this year's Fiesta Bowl Parade, in armor it's going to make the heat issue worse, not help deflect it and 2. "in universe" the armor's sealed and self cooled.

The more armor that shows the better, the more armor that's covered by fabric the less Mando it looks. I think if you added a cod and lost the loincloth that would help. Loincloths while way more comfortable than cod plates seldom if ever looks as good.

Cyrus' comment on the trench and hood are good idea's as well.

I love messing with you PJ.

Yes I will say I agree with loosing the Loin cloth and going with a Cod would look good.
