Body Armor Info List
« on: Dec 16, 2012, 12:53 PM »
If you're looking for good tutorials, build threads, or general information on how to start building your body armor, look no further. This is the main hub of all the best armor threads here. I've separated them out into sections to make it easier. I will be expanding this list as time moves on. See below if you want to add something to this list.

Body armor can actually be one of the hardest parts of building a good Mandalorian costume. Sizing, spacing, and shape are absolutely key to making your entire kit look good, and it really all falls on how good the armor rides on your body's frame. We're not all built to the same size, so the best suggest anyone's ever had has been to print out your armor templates on paper, cut them out of paper or poster board. Then tape it to your body and have a family member or friend take a photo with you wearing the raw templates on your body and post those pictures to the boards. This'll help people give you a good idea of how well the sizing it work. You may have to reprint and cut out those templates again if it's found that you're not quite hitting the right size - but it's easier to do it at that first step in paper than it is in plastic or metal.

If there is a thread you think needs to be added to this list, please send Thaxos a PM on the boards: [HERE]
