Just wanted to clear up a couple concerns that some folks had...

1st, the heat in AZ...the material is a light breatheable linen & doesnt add, much if any, extra heat or weight to my kit

2nd, the amount of fabric...yes it is alot of fabric, but it could worse, I deliberately chose not to do sleeves for this reason. As for using it to cover up armor, thats the point, on a desert planet (where my character works) like say, Tatooine, the native populice (tusken raiders, etc) wear layers to protect from sandstorms & the like, my jacket serves this purpose as well as concelement in a crowd, even though the armor may be conceled for the most part, it is all still there & when I submit my app, I was planning on doing the pics without the jacket so the armor can be evaluated for what it is.

3rd I absolutely hate the cod piece so I want to keep the loincloth,  I know, that it adds even more fabric but I think that it adds a little extra over the top uniqueness to my kit

I actually will make 2 of the  changes to the jacket that Cyrus suggested...ill keep the hood but maybe shorten it (although the pic is without boots & with them on the bottom of the jacket is about  2in off the deck) & then ill do the slit up the back, itll go from the bottom of the jaclet to about my waist

Thank you all for the comments & advice, I truly appreciate everything being said aboug my kit whether its good or bad, so please it coming

& to Kel T, the gunbelt came from my own head, with a little bit of  inspiration from Han Solo's...but im glad you like it ;)

At least you have a plan lol.

I did a Tuskin based Mando for my son. Gave him a kama and loincloth (bleh   :-X ) but, it works with the kit. I also gave him a shemagh which rides around his neck but could wrap the helmet as well.

One thing about fabric... it's a tricky beast.... heavy fabrics look by far the best, more "realistic" to the movies but, they add alot of heat. Lightweight fabrics for capes, kama's and loincloths are certainly more comfortable but, they tend to look "costumey" or "Halloweeny".

Maybe try shortening the loincloth to no longer than midthigh. I think that will help alot too. It's at or below the knee's now.

Thanx PJ, Ive had so many ideas & plans go thru my head with this whole that most nights I cant sleep cuz my brain wont tuen off...ahhh costuming ;) 

shortening it may work, I have done some heavy weathering to the loincloth & I think once I get it on with the rest of the kit it'll work out, I did actually end up shortening it about an inch due the weathering

Trench coats don't have hoods, which might be why some viewers are skewing towards "robe" or "cloak" instead of "duster" or "trench coat." I mean, you can call it whatever you want, but a real-world trench coat has a very specific look that this doesn't fit into. Also, I really like your paint job but it seems like, especially with the flash, the plates kinda fade into the vest. Maybe you could add a third color to make the plates "pop". It looks like your stuff, armor and soft parts, is well made, so I'm just trying to help you go from "good" to "wow"

I have been obsessed with a video game so I haven't seen your thread recently. Sorry :( but I have to say I love the update.  I really love seeing the progress of your kit.  I think it looks sick even with the fabric. When I think of lots of fabric layers that look good I think of Tuskens, Jedi, and Star Killer.  Keep up the good job man  ;D
