So about 10 am this morning I decided i wanted my boots to be wraparound armor for DCon, so laking any hastily drawn crude napkin sketches or much to go on I cut a piece of matte photo paper into a one size fits both template, started cutting and forming sintra, glueing and body working to make a couple wrap arounds that will velcro to the skin plates and match the gauntlets in appearance and color for some added texture.

And some bondo and paint and a really long run on sentence a few hours later


and here we go, the little rain catchers face up, they'll get more paint details and weather this week, also painted a raffle bucket so a good busy mando'y day.

Shiny, I like 'em ;D. Those 'calf plates' on the back are a nifty addition.

Definitely looks like a pretty straightforward addition. One of these days, I'll get off my lazy shebs and do the same; I've always felt that just frontal lower leg armor is somewhat lacking.
