Jate's Soft Parts- Cape Re-paint
« on: Nov 01, 2012, 06:56 PM »
Updates:
Here are some pictures of the material for my cape. It's a little long from shoulder to shoulder. I'll start soon on the trimming, and I want to paint a mandalorian skull symbol on it but I'm not sure if this material is the best for painting on:



This is a perfect example of what I'm working towards: http://i351.photobucket.com/albums/q469/darkewood/Armor%20Soft%20Parts/capetapedonbackplate.jpg
    ________________________________________________________________________________________________

    Pictures of my homemade cape. I hope to wear this on my final armor. Hopefully I don't have to make a back plate seeing that the cape covers my back.  ;D






And pictures of the belt I hope to use, for my Kama(for now).

I'll be replacing the buckle with a piece of wood, The wood will have an engraved Mythosaurs skull on it then spray painted silver.



The card is the size, the wood buckle will be. [/list]

You Took the Words Right out of my Mouth Niabi ...... Fleabay is not the Mandalorian Super Store . :rolleyes:

  Having a Bigger Flight suit is better than to Small . Once it's fitted it will be much much better .
Good Luck with your Build ner'vod ....  8)

That belt from them is pretty decent, I use on on Val's kit. It is a pain the weather though.

Niabi said that the legs are a little to long on my jumpsuit, would it be okay to roll them up?

Taglar told me that it takes about 1 to 2 years to make a proper set of armor, so hopefully by then the jumpsuit fits better. But I will consider this idea.

Thanks vod

IMO, everyone should have their flightsuits tailored, it does a good job on pushing a kit that extra mile and making it look as if it walked off a movie screen. However that's wishful thinking on my part and some people make baggier flightsuits work. On the pouches, I'd say getting surplus mosin nagant pouches or the like would remove the need for weathering, since they're already  pretty beat up and honestly those pouches remind me of cell phone cases. Excited to see this come together  8)

I agree with you on the belt vod, they do look like cell phone cases. I Google searched boba fett belt and it looks nothing like it.

That belt looks close to a Jango belt but it looks like they got the side pieces upside down. In the pic the side of one of the pouchs the rounded end is at the top and the flat end is bottom. It should be the other way around, but with a custom mando it shouldn't matter I don't think. The flight suit I think needs to be took in a little if you don't it will bunch up where the leg plates attach.
Here is what I mean see on my legs
 
And this is after I took in the legs and hemed them
 
Sorry to ramble on

I did take in the arms too.

I'm really close the elastic on my shins pulled off just had it hot glued I'm going to use snaps to reattach it and then do the same to the other leg pieces but besides that I have everything else done so not to much longer I guess
