This is looking fantastic.

Personally - I think the Bo/ Nite Owl armor is the best design to come out of the live action series. The rest doesn't look all that "Mando" to me except that armor. I really wish the "male" armor kept more of the traditional aesthetics like they did with the Nite Owls. Looks like you are doing it justice for sure. Looking forward to seeing more of this. Do you have a concept idea of colors and overall end goal for your kit yet?

Keep it up  :like:

Honestly though! I was gonna do modern era at first, but then I found out Bo's chest armor was approved for post imperial, it was actually a ruus from another clan that mentioned it to me.

I do! I always do a plethora of concept art pieces before I start a costume. I'm still working on Flo's backstory, but essentially she's a Mando that specializes in close contact combat, hence why she carries an axe, hatchet, and vibroblade. She still has a blaster and the whistling birds just in case, but she's confrontational. That's why her armor color pallete is brighter, she's not trying to hide!  :laugh:


And thank you! I really appreciate it. ;D

I like it. I actually just made a large axe and double hatchet/tomahawk combination for a customer not to long ago. The concept art of the axe and concept art in general looks pretty sweet. Personally, I think solid color kamas are the way to go and I would suggest adding some blue symbols/Mando writing/ or other geometric designs to your plates instead of the trim on the kama.

Are the designs on the chest plate a subtle nod to the logos seen on Jaster Mereel, Montross, and Jango Fett from the Open Seasons comic by chance?? Cause I love it.

Haha, much appreciated! My friend actually designed it:


In earlier concept pieces of her, the axe design was always changing. Finally a friend was like, "Can I design it and make it?" And I was like, "Heck yeah you can!"

Funny you say that, there is actually gonna be blue details and mando'a, I just didn't include it in this concept piece because it would've been too hard to see. I like to do different concept pieces for each armor piece.  The trim is here to stay though, a friend designed it and I'm just too in love with the design. :)



Though I will likely have more than one kama to cycle through, and a solid colored kama is definitely on the list. Solid grey would look really cool! :laugh:

And it actually wasn't, but now that you mention it.  :-X It's actually a nod to another character I created, a custom Spidey character. Not a crossover, mind you, just a little easter egg for me and people who know who that other character is.  :<3:

Nothing wrong with having interchangeable parts and pieces on a kit! Has your hatchet been completed yet? Does it match the axe? I am curious as to what that looks like as well.

Looking forward to seeing more of this.  :like:

Your kit is shaping up really well!  I love that you have (what appears to be) a cross-draw blaster, and that battle-axe is AMAZING!
