The Mandalorian

This is the first suit where I was using a lot of other peoples designs to finish. Here's the links to all the files that I used:

Helmet
Forearms - Left - Right
Shoulders, Hand Shields, Jetpack (There were mine)
Right Leg
Belt
Mine Holder
Detonators
Cartridges
Sling Rifle Clip

So let's start off with the helmet. Using Rop Pauza's design from my minifactory and poking all types of holes through it, I printed it out and worked into the system a fan and speaker phone. I posted the speaker tutorial here: Simple Helmet Speaker System

Helmet - Raw

Speaker contraption I set up for the chin area. The speaker sound comes out the bottom and rests by the chin with a hinge and magnet to hold it in place.

Redesigned gauntlets so that they can be locked using pins on the inside.

Prepping the pieces for sanding. Need to get rid of the seem lines as much as possible.

Right leg integrated with costume leather I got off of ebay.



Sewing: I purchased off of ebay this outfit:

The spare parts are next to useless but the sewing is spot on when it comes to material used. I did a lot of adjusting to get this to look and fit well.

For the shirt? I cut off the arms and sewn them to a t-shirt undershirt I like.

Pants were too big. I took them in the hard way...kind of like how you do jeans.

It's not perfect, but it will do.

Nice and snug. maybe a little too snug. Well I'll try to keep my weight down.

and now to assemble the rest of the armor:

I used velcro under the straps and t-nuts and screws to attach the armor to the suit. The undersuit, I had to remove the half zipper in the back and put a full one in. Luckily I had one left over from captain america suit I did.

Used t-nuts and screws to attach the shoulder armor.

A little bit of weathering and gloss overcoat and I'd say I'm ready for holloween...just not sure which year.

I forgot to mention the gloves:
you need 2 pair - This Pair at a size larger than your normal and this pair at your usual size.

Cut the black pair by the knuckles and slide the yellow one through.

Just do what I did and follow this tutorial:

Damn MoeSizzlac - Looking good. The wife and I were watching an episode this past weekend and I though that it would be a fun set to make.
This really is an awesome set. It's really comfortable once all the parts are sized right. I'd say the only restriction would be the forearms at full bend.

Found what boots you're going to use?
I choose Skechers Men's Blaine Orsen Ankle Boot as a base. The actual boots are a little different and the sketchers can be modded very easily using the welding geek's tutorial here.

Personally, looking at the below picture, I'll just be weathering them and adding the boot tip and middle strip with some shoe goo as you can barely tell the difference with the rest.
