Thank you. I am quite proud of my helmet. So if any AZ mandos need help on turning a 2 piece into an awesome helmet, then I am happy to help.

Happy new years!!! I started back to school today (boo, short winter break ><"), but not without some awesome news first.  My amazing boyfriend worked it out with another mando in the area, that in exchange for doing a pepakura helmet build, that he would start working on my armor!!! And it's going to be out of 6mm sintra too!

So I'll be working on that this weekend and whenever I find time between classes and online homework. I'll post pics along the way, which should be very soon :)

So I FINALLY have some progress to report, and finally found time to tell about it!

The pep helmet that my boyfriend did was awesome, and got me a mannequin for my chest and ab plates and the cod piece too. I didn't get pics before he did a lot of the sanding down the pointy bits of the boobs, but here are the afters.


Daniel tried his best to trace them out, although i wish he used pencil first rather than sharpie for the sake of clear lines, but hey it's getting painted later.  :rolleyes:



And might I also add...mannequins are overly idealistic of the human shape...aka I felt kinda fat after holding that in front of me  >:(



So the work is at least traced out for the moment, and the nipple area needs to get fixed. Hopefully I can find a weekend to have a time to work on this stuff at Daniel's house soon. College makes it not easy to find spare time for hobbies of any sort. I will post again when I have more to show! Comments are always welcome :)

Yay progress!  Don't worry take your time and work on your kit when you can.  It took me forever because at the time I too had school and work and other things going on.

Using the half mannequin like that to get the armor shape is a really cool idea.  I'm pretty sure I'll be building a kit for my wife after I finish mine, so I'll be following your build.

Are you going to actually cut the plates from the mannequin or just use it as a base to shape over?

We're going to cut the plates from the mannequin. Though we're scrapping the ab part of it and throwing in the segmented legacy plates.

Yeah, I've seen some designs by others of mixing plate styles and so we figured the Legacy abs would be better...although I'm rather short, i wonder how that will turn out. He's doing a lot of the grunt work...not for long though, I'm going to make sure he's not doing the whole thing  :P

HEY! I finally have some progress to report! no pics yet, but progress nonetheless.

With the help of my amazing bf, I got my boob plates traced and cut out! Still need to fix the holes where the nips got sanded, and over all trimmed (my slight "OCD" kicked in when I realized how off they were in some places). I decided that instead of making them one solid piece like Legacy style, to go ahead and cut them in two like regular plates to allow me room to breathe. Hopefully i can get pics posted tonight or in the coming days when i work on them again :)

If you kept the chest pieces you could have had some cool legacy style plates like Ni'ka.  Her WIP thread is pretty awesome.  You can check it out HERE

She used a mannequin I believe and turned it into some really cool plates

Well, Danny and I talked about it, they only were cut apart because they were just too small on my chest, so we're going to attach them and the chest diamond to a small plate behind it to give me more rib space. Although I am planning to do a small version of the Legacy abs, maybe even shins too. I just haven't had much time to work on them as of late.

Well whatdya know I have pics i haven't posted yet!!!

I was able to get some major work done on the chest plates, like getting them traced out using a method i saw on the boards:


Then with a little help from the boyfriend, got them cut out. I did most of it, here he's just finishing it up


And here they are cut out! He later went back and cut out the marked off parts for the chest diamond


Now for a test fit. The only reason i cut them apart is because the rib size of the mannequin is not realistic in any way so it did not work with me. We're going to attach them to another piece of plastic, maybe sintra, and the chest diamond to make it one solid piece.


Finals are almost over, and with that hopefully more progress will be made!

Yay, progress! (I'm the one who was creepin' on your gaunts :)) Sadly enough... I never would have thought of that method for tracing, or even thought of looking for a method at all. Nice find!

Haha, it's ok. When you find a good source of info, you tend to get the most you can from it. this is certainly the case for my boyfriend XD

Anyhoo, I had seen this method in another femmando's posting, but i don't remember exactly who it was...i don't think i saved the book mark, dang it. But from what i can recalled, she made them too long so she ended up having the boob right in the middle of a long section of body. it looked weird. I had to tape down the pieces and trace with a marker to get it right then see what was uneven and trim some more. I'm slightly meticulous  ;D
