I originally wanted to make this whole kit myself, from scratch, almost without help. Then I realized that it would be darn near impossible to do that and get official in this year. My boyfriend, Daniel, aka Kiyanu Terras, offered to give me his old plates once he upgraded to Legacy plates. Me being the stubborn noob that I am, I wasn't too fond the idea, thinking I was just going to be a hand-me-down Mando for my first kit.

But as he explained to me, it is a tradition in the Mandalorians for parents to pass on their armor to their children. This made me think very differently about it. So in honor of said tradition, I will be using his old plates, as pictured below :)




The colors are going to be very different, my plan is the profile pic I have for the moment, which is this:


Hard parts, received very graciously :) Soft parts....still need to get. Minus one... I was kindly given a flak vest by Anabel Martinez (Inya Motir) when I went to Star Wars day at Chase Field, wrangling for my boyfriend.
It is lined with a soft yet sturdy fabric and needs no altering to fit me, which is a big deal because I'm on the rather petite side  ;D


Now I just need to figure out what to do for the rest of my stuff....oh well, it's a start for now. Any comments, suggestions, or pointing in the right direction will be greatly appreciated! More to come later

FABULOUS SUIT OF ARMOR!
Is that a saguaro cactus worked into the Mandalorian graphic on one of your plates there?  Ingenious!!

it kinda works really well for the overall environment that one would think of when you hear Arizona. aka America's sandbox  as i call it.

I'll hopefully get some new pics that i can use for a proper trading card this coming weekend. I will post when they get to me!
