The plates look a little short to me, where does the ab plate sit in comparison to your belly button?

I thought the same thing at first glance, too, because you are wearing a long t-shirt over your jeans, it's hard to tell where your belt line is, but it looks good.

Haha I knew that might cause problems when I started taping the pieces on the shirt.

Alright, so I thought I would give the Mandomaker a whirl. Now its not a for sure scheme, but the basic idea of what I am shooting for. Though the weapons will be reversed, and that was the closest I could get lightsaber not looking like a lightsaber. Will be a Bes'kad.

Not that keen on the neon green to be honest.

Won't be neon or lime, wanted a lighter green to go with the dark green. But that was around the shade, a bit too bright I won't lie.

I feel the green plates on the green vest may be to similar, may try adding some contrast make the plates pop or differentiate themselves from the vest or vice versa.

So nothing to special to update on, got some of the templates cut out on thick poster board for better tracing. And got my backplate printed out, cut, and taped together. And question, how do I go about updating the title of this thread. Not really a concept anymore, starting to take shape as a WIP.

I label everything, if anyone was wondering why I did that.




And secondary question, does anyone know whats up with the site? Why is everything crooked?

Check the date.

Templates look nice.

Wow, as soon as I read that the overwhelming feeling of stupidity crept it. Hoping to go and get my sintra this weekend, hopefully.

Yup! That just happened to me. It was quite annoying though, glad it is back to normal!

Anyways, good luck with the build. Just a tip on sintra. If you plan on using a heat gun to bend/shape it, I highly suggest doing it outside. Not sure if the fumes are harmful, but they smell pretty bad for awhile.

Good luck with the build! I honestly struggle with cod pieces, so I am looking forward to seeing what you do for your first time.

Thanks, it's honestly my first time working with it. So it's going to be a learning curve, and I had heard that it's not the best smelling stuff. That's why I wasn't keen on using my oven.

Yeah, the fumes are harmful (it is plastic after all). I would do it outside, or if you can't then use a very well ventilated room.

Yeah, was planning on doing it on my covered back deck. Better for everyone, plus my I have a respirator with organic vapor filters.
