Does anyone have any armor? I'm gonna have my brother make a set with me, but I'm gonna have to wait until I stop growing. Don't want to grow out of something so important (and expensive).

I've got the parts for it, but I've been too busy (or maybe just lazy) to finish it

Does color have any importance? I know Vau said his black armor had some significance.

There's a traditional series of color meanings, though not everyone necessarily needs to adhere to them. Hell some Mandos in comics and the like have armor that isn't even one of the seven. Though I know some on the mercs forum have suggested the idea of colors like purple being of mixed meanings. Anyway...

Grey is mourning a lost love
Red is remembering a parent
Black is justice
Gold is vengeance
Green is duty
Blue is reliability
Orange is shereshoy

I don't have any beskar'gam, though I did practice getting a set of cardboard and fiberglass plates up and existing. Just to practice the process of making it that way. I painted the plates orange. Partly as a sort of joke about how I was Buddhist at the time but here I was making fake armor for a Star Wars culture known for being what is essentially anti-Buddhism. Orange in Buddhism being the color of Enlightenment and wisdom. As some point I want to try my hand at it again and get a full suit up and going. Not sure if I'll keep with the orange plates. I may because orange has just become a very special color to me at this point, no longer Buddhist or no. I've no idea what to make the flight suit's color though if I do use orange. Besides "avoid black being I do not want to be the jack-o-lantern mando". Another possibility is a greenish blue, for Manannán mac Lir, one of my primary gods and the reason I converted away from Buddhism (well there were many reasons, but he was the point of absolutely yeah no I have to leave). I'd like to cover the plates in ogham and triskeles either way. Probably putting Donn's name on me somewhere since he is the progenitor of the Gaels and a big deal for me. I mean he's King of the Underworld, a god, and our dad because he was a stubborn, ambitious motherfucker who did not taking dying lying down. Fuck that being dead shit, I'll beat you up and steal your house you fairy fuck.
