Thread jumping! Cape looks fine, it just needs to fully cover your back and where a theoretical backplate would be. I have a cape, very simple to do.

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

I made both of my kits in 2 months (each kit). 3 of my clan mates, as well as a couple ex members also made theirs in a matter of months. It all depends on the time you put into it, and your recourses for funding and materials .

Would you know how to paint on a symbol on a cape? I'm not sure how to do that..

Usually using a stencil and paint.

Thanks, I thought it had to be a specific paint and /or fabric.

Industrial strength velcro will do the trick on the plates, but use the sew-on kind on the vest. I've had no trouble with the industrial strength stuff by itself, haven't needed to reinforce the stickiness with anything yet.

I tried using hot glue to re-enforce the Velcro and it actually makes it worse.

Thank you for your suggest Haran, I appreciate it.  ;D

Updates:
Here's the 14'' stencil that I made, using the PDF file that Ru'Der Marekar made and sent to me via e-mail. http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=8588 A big thank you to you sir. 8)


I'll be using this stencil for the skull on my cape. The only problem I'm having is the paper is curling upwards. Should I tape the underside of it before painting or use something else to keep it from curling?

What kind of paper did you transfer it onto? If it's normal printer paper you might have difficulty with it popping up in places, whenever I've tried using thin paper like that in the past it ends up being more trouble than it's worth.

What Haran said. Transferring that to thicker paper will help.
