I add in another comment for the black vest. When you moved around in some of the pictures, the ab plate would cross over the bottom of the vest. Just looked a bit off. I think the chest plates would also def stand out more.

Otherwise good job! I look forward to seeing it at C5.

If I can throw in my own two cents, I like the thought of a darker vest to pop the plates more- I agree that would be good.  I feel like maybe instead of going to black, you should use a very desaturated color vest, something like a warm brown or a ruddy earth tone.  It would fit in with the sort of 'fall colors' you have with the salmon and beige color.  And it introduces a little bit of subtle color variation to the suit to keep it from becoming too monochromatic.

Oh, wow.  This looks fantastic!  I can only hope that my own armor will end up looking half as good.  This is definitely an example of a great kit, and an awesome femmando kit!  I agree with your idea for a darker vest, though, that'd definitely make the torso plates pop more.

Ooh, I like this idea.  It might end up matching the ammo belt a little more, too, so it's not the only darker brown you've got going on. 

Whatever you end up going with, it'll look amazing, I'm sure.  :)

Have you looked at standard vacuform fett knees with a simple elastic strap on the back?  That's what I wear for knees and have never had any issues with them impeding my movement.  Unless you're looking for something that you can actually kneel on?

Yeah, I want knees I can actually kneel on, along with not having to constantly readjust them from walking if they're held by elastic. Not having to worry about them falling down is my biggest concern.

I like this idea; I'll certainly toss it around when it comes to choosing to replace the vest.



Thanks for the feedback, everyone. :) After seeing this suit at every stage of construction, it's hard for me to see it as a whole. All I see are the flaws, but I suppose that's how everyone feels about their armor. :P

A great set, and suits you really fine.
Like the idea you had for the legs. Gives the whole set a heavier look without restricting your movements too much.

Great work. I like the simplicity and clean lines of this kit. You did a great job in the making of all of it and good job by those that built pieces that you acquired for it.

You've put together a geat kit and I agree with the suggestions made above about adding in a darker color vest whether black or some kind of dark accenting color to go along with your overall color scheme.

Yes, we are all our own worst critics and it is nice to hear some feedback from others.

Again, great work and can't wait to see more pics.

Keep up the great work.

YAY!!! I love this kit!! You look AMAZING... ;D And it is true that we are our own worst critique because to me it looks perfect!

i wish i could see it in person... LOL!

But as far as the vest goes, i personally think that it really ties in the color of the armor plates with the rest of kit, but i do agree that if you want them to really pop then either darkening that vest with like a fabric paint (just getting it into the 'grain' of the leather and making it look darker and dirty) or just replacing it... (which if you ever need help with that again just let me know... but whatev... lol  ;) ;D)

Anyway, again, great job and i look forward to seeing more pics!

I feel it lacks the "walked off the set" look.  It looks very well made but aside from the helmet and shape of the armor plates, it doesn't say "Mando" to me.

If you're talking "walked off the set," I think that's where it excels. It's very "Movie Mando" to me, and that's the thing that I like about it. I think if Hollywood were going to make a Mando movie for the masses, this is totally what the female lead(s) would look like. Kudos, Vhe!   ;D
