Well ner vode, i have officially started my beskar'gam. I decided to make it of metal. I started with the
Beskar Kar'ta (Kar'ta Beskar?) I will soon begin construction of the rest. I am getting closer to becoming a true Mando'ad.

I DO REALIZE THE CODPIECE IS CRAZY
I will probably use a self etching paint but i will use a wire brush to texture it. If the paint doesnt want to stick then i can just go Jango style.

I finished the rest of the torso, back plate not shown.

Oh this is neat. I just started myself a week or two ago? Started out with cardboard and fiberglass resin but my cutting sucks badly. Also it's a pain. Next set I'll be using sintra. Gonna finish with the cardboard stuff though for practice with the materials. Also for something to paint with and to be able to test which color of paint I prefer against the flight suit. Using spray paints to color mine.

Dickie's coveralls are honestly used by a lot of people in the Mando Mercs club. Really anything works so long as it gets the look across. Some people use yoga pants sewn to a matching top, for example. I'm using an air force flight suit because I was able to find a nice one for under 50 bucks.

As far as flak vests...One suggestion is to use a leather jacket that fits you snugly. Cut the sleeves off it. Then turn it inside out and wear it backwards. Check around thrift shops and the Goodwill for that sort of thing. Will take a long while but you can find nice stuff for costuming at them. If you want to try making one yourself the Mando Merc's board's got patterns for that. The suggested material for vests is duck cloth, but really anything that doesn't stretch easy like t-shirt fabric and that can hold up to frequent use and the weight of the plates will work. Things like t-shirts sag and stretch under the weight which isn't great.

List of the resources on the site: http://mandalorianmercs.org/get-involve ... templates/

You can find some vest templates in there. Also maybe check through the soft parts board on the forums and look through people's WIPs. You might be able to find some ideas there.

Because its considered socially unacceptable wear armor in modern life, and because the resolnare require it, i made this necklace so i am following the rule about wearing the armor. It says knowledge and a sharp tongue. More accurately it says "kar'tayl , paklalat" didnt put bal (and) in there to save space. Now i will wear this necklace at all times, once i actually but the string on it.

Yoga pants and armour sounds like an epic combination.
I dig the necklace.
