Here is a good link on that
http://www.personal.utulsa.edu/~marc-carlson/leather/hl.html

Also for holsters I've done in the past, I've covered the gun in plastic wrap, used a thin layer of clay to create the holster design, including symbols, ect on the front part, take a fiberglass cast of that, then use a thin layer of clay just shy of the thickness of your leather on the inside and make another fiberglass cast of the plug.  You scrape all the clay out, heat your leather like above and place in the mold.  Hmmm, maybe I should do a tutorial on that sometime....

Loving the work here!  ;D The only thing that gets me is that I just don't see the helmet as looking Mandalorian. It just kinda looks like something from a medieval realm. Maybe it's just me though..

Ok more updates. Sorry about the delay.

So I made a pieces to hang from my belt, just some grenades and a tool of some sort.



And this tool.



I created my Shin plates, still working on painting them, but here is what they look like.


And on the leather.


Thanks for watching.

Thank you for all the comments!

Ok RL has been crazy, but here is a small update. 

Now almost everyone has been making axes for their EC kit, so I decided to go the route of a spear and kinda base it off the comic pictures. And sorry these are not the best pictures in the world.  Going to try and finish up the last little bit and do app pics this weekend or the next.

Full length.


Upclose of the Head.


And the leather wrapping.

Yay, early-crusader-spears! :D

Looks great and I really like how we did the same and it came out totally different.
I have also a spear, oriented at the comics and a leather wrapping around the middle, but our spears look no way related :D

Looking forward, to see the whole kit :)

Thanks everyone!

I need to spend more time at your house.  Very nice.  :)

Wouldn't your husband get jealous? Unless you made stuff to bring home to him. LOL

Love it ;) Howd you do it ? ;D

It a wooden painters pole, stripped the shiny off of it and stained it.  The spear head is a painter roller, cut just before the bend the rest is cardboard, fiberglass and a little bondo.  I have some pictures of the process somewhere, I'll find them and put them up.

OK sorry for the delay about updates. Never, ever try to sew a flight suit without patterns and without a dressing dummy. It was taking me so long because I was creating the patterns on myself and pinning on myself...

So Far I've just about finished my flight suit. Here are some pictures. I don't have the cuffs done yet, or the Velcro sewed into the collar yet, but this should give you all an idea.

Then after it's finished, I plan on weathering it with some charcoal dust , a little air brushing and maybe some gum Arabic.

as always, comments are welcome.  ;D

looks a bit baggy, but a heck of a job for a scratch made flight suit.

It's not finished yet, the top and bottom half need to be pinned and sewed together. That should take a lot of the bagginess out of it.  ;D

Looks great, dude!
I hope mine will be as good as yours, I'm also planning to sew my flightsuit by myself, because I can't find one, that comes near to the image in my head.
