Introduction: Mandalorian Armor

Mandalorian armor from PVC

Materials:
1. PVC
2. Paint
3. Building hairdrayer
4. Stationary knife

Step 1: Craft

You need to make templates of armor and move them onto sheet of PVC. Then cut it and bend them using your hairdryer. Time for painting!)

Step 2: Harsh Life

Your armor is mandalorian armor. It must be shabby for sure, draw scratches. More scratches. Scratches are everywhere! After that you can make washing

Thanks for attention, i wish you good luck in your craft

P.S I know, that i had mixed knee plates, it was too late when i took this photo)

I'm working towards rebuilding my armor. I don't know if you can find a more specific answer than I did, but do you know what armor style the Mandalorians had when they fought against the Jedi for the Sith? I think it was one of the crusader outfits, but I can't figure out which, and I was wondering if there is anything more specific even than just that.

actually, never mind. I think I'm going to do a set of legacy armor instead. but thanks anyway, since I know you would have answered eventually! ;)

here's me in full gear. The chest plates don't stay right against my body very well, but everyone tells me it looks good (of course, everybody who tells me that isn't a mandalorian freak, so maybe that doesn't check in). but whatever, I still think it's awesome

What did you do to get the plates to attach to your bodysuit? Did you just put Velcro strips on both?

author
EvgenR made it! (author)EvgenR2016-10-25

i've used buttons for chest plates, flypapers and slings for other parts of armour. Check different topics on Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club, there are a lot of useful articles about it)

And, if you did, can you think of a different way? I'm just going to use thermals for the bodysuit for now, but I want to still be able to use them normally
