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.

I think you're describing ever third person in this club lol

Good looking set, love the color choices and the "chaps" Only suggestion I could come up with is maybe add something bright colored to the thighs, not anything big, just a little something to break up the black a bit.

Clean and simple lines, easily recognizable helmet, customized armor plates that retain the feel of Boba's. Leather ammo belt, decent blaster, good integration into a body suit.

You're right Kantis, it doesn't say "mando"; it frakkin SCREAMS MANDO when I see it.

It screams "o
m a Mando!!" to me.   

Considering each one is custom made per the wearer's personality.  THis suit 'suits' its wearer, and looks awesome.

Love seeing all of this together!  I've been flipping back and forth between these pictures and your concept art, and I think you captured your vision spot on!  The shots of your back look amazing; you have just enough going on aesthetically to look interesting but not so much that it looks too busy.  All in all your lines are very clean.  And I LOVE the blaster.   

I don't think you'll need anything on the thighs once you find some knees you like, but that's my personal opinion.  And I can't remember; what material is your vest made of?  Would it be possible to try to "stain" it so that you have a black or brown color but still have some white highlights?  I normally don't like the idea of black and brown together, but when you upgrade a deep brown vest might look amazing. 

And, as always, the armor looks stunning.  Your mad skillz are making me ashamed of my lack of progress this summer.  :-[  Well done!   ;D

I have to agree with Kantis and I am going to be brutally honest, this is my opinion and they are not mandates. First of all, the piece looks very good for metal armor and  many areas that I can see must have had some difficulty so congrats on that aspect.
Now here are just a few of the areas where I can see Kantis's point of view:
-Lack of knees
-I think some elbows wouldn't hurt
-The pauldrons look too rigidly placed, loosen them up a bit and help them rest more on your shoulder
-The drastic changes in color. It goes from light to black then back to light to black then back to white, it's very mesmerizing and it's hard to focus on the detail.
-From the back, it looks a little plain. Maybe add a kama or a cape of some sort.
-Bulk up your gauntlets a little more. Girls with big gauntlets that could rip stuff in half are hot.

I don't mind your opinion, it's just that, "It doesn't look Mando," is pretty much the most unconstructive criticism one can give in this club. :P

But, if the kit isn't your personal cup of tea, just avoid standing next to me when the cameras are around.  :D

I'm usually very critical of kits, especially female kits. This one however I find myself really liking. Great job! Love the kit. You can come troop with us any time.

The only problem I see with this kit is that I thought the Mandos weren't supposed to distract from the Slave Leias at CV, and with her wearing this armor, I think there will be a LOT of distraction going on!  Great job, hope mine turns out half as nice as this one!

My Broski said he didn't want a cod piece on his armor so I told him I'd make him regret it.
But back on topic, nice kit. I'm loving the colors especially.

It was great having you at the photoshoot. Pics don't do the costume justice; it's great. I'm in love with that ammo belt!
