OK, thanks! This means I don't have to spend money on a hot knife :D
How much does this cost to make, minus 'everything' (for sticking the piezo on :D)?
it appeared that you used scissors to cut the foam. I've heard that this can wreck scissors, and that hot knives work better (although they are, obviously, hot). do you have an opinion on this?
XD that would make for a nice bedroom addition
Hey, this is cool! I might do it sometime, although I would probably make it and then leave it in the closet for months ?
what sort of hot knife would you recommend? I found this thing on amazon, and it seems to be a good pricehttps://www.amazon.com/GOCHANGE-Electric-Styrofoam...however, it also doesn't seem to be an actual knife, and it says it is for cutting styrofoam. do you think it would work fine?
Oh rats I didn't mean to paste a link to those headphones. I was looking at them at the same time, must have accidentally copied the wrong URLHere's the actual link ?https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01HEJECYE/ref=mp_s_a_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1494245564&sr=8-5&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=hot+knife&dpPl=1&dpID=51TAUou9gUL&ref=plSrch
is there a particular hot knife you would recommend? for example, I found this thing on amazon for a reasonable pricehttps://www.amazon.com/Headphones-Professional-Com...However, it doesn't seem to be an actual knife, and it says it's for cutting styrofoam. do you think it would work? I can't find anything much different.
here's my second try. sorry about the tape. I thought some on the back would help keep the wings a little flatter, but it just curved them back so I had to add some on the front too l:(
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! ;)
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.
Well, I didn't do a very good job, but here's my first attempt PS I tried to vote for you, but the little button thing wasn't being cooperative on my iPod. :( so I'll do that on the computer later

Welcome to Arduino
cool. I'm going to try the Arduino class and do this when I'm done
Retro Pac-Man Clock
What do you think the cheapest you could do is?
how much would this cost? and, just out of curiosity, how easy would it be to modify the project to be some other old game? donkey kong? pong?
Transforming your world with Tinkercad
No, hostile mobs will despawn if you get some 40 something blocks away for more than 40 something seconds or something like that. basically, if you get too far away from a hostile mob for too long, it will just disapear. so, basically, I got rid of her by staying away from her. I just wish I hadn't actually wasted an entire day finding the cows l:(
I liked learning about fighting, particularly that axes do more damage than swords, and that you can use milk to remove negative status effects, mostly because that allowed me to remove that pesky witch a bit more safely. unfortunately, by the time I had actually found cows, and gotten back, she had despawned because I was too far away l:(
Battling Hunger to Stay Alive
Building a Shelter
well, now that that fiasco is over, I got a really good world. I literally spawned right next to a ravine, so I built some dirt steps and mined in. there was also a witch hut some 100 blocks away, and I managed to sneak around the witch, put a torch inside, add a door, and loot the cauldron to boot. so, all in all, a good first two days!
well, when I tried to go back into the world selection, it said that the file folder no longer existed, and then I exited the game and re-entered it, and it seemed to be redownloading everything anyway. I could probably back it up from our old computer, because we switched computers about a month ago, but it wouldn't have the world I made a survival shelter on, and it's probably a blessing in disguise anyway. it had been a while since I played, and I had a whole bunch of worlds I probably didn't need or want but refused to delete. so, I'm just going to leave it as is.
well, it didn't help, because our computer runs on Ubuntu, or Kubuntu, or something like that, but I googled it and figured out how to access it from within minecraft, in resourcepacks. unfortunately, when I was trying to move the folder, I ended up 'breaking the link' or something like that, and thereby deleting all my world data and the whole 9 yards. so now I have to start over :( :( :( :(
how do I access the screenshot afterwards??
Welcome to Minecraft
yeah, I know the glue is a little obvious. it always feels like the cardboard is going to peel away though, and I end up sealing all the edges. maybe I just need to build up confidence in hot gle ;D
Star Wars DC-15S blaster ri...View Instructable »
ok here you go!
at least, if you want. it's not really from this instructable, so your choice.P.S. sweet glove, man!
this is cool! I made a lightsaber for my mandalorian costume, but it doesn't have a blade and I don't think I posted a photo. I'll try and do that later!
aaannnd, here's the other one. sorry it looks like it was made of clay, this was my first time with the bondo putty that I was using
tadaa! made a holster, too. wasn't that hard, I basically just made a box with a loop on the back :D
here it is. didn't manage to add any sort of rig to attach guns to it, like I wanted to, but it's something I'll probably work on when I make an RC costume (possibly next year, I;m not sure)
PS sorry it took me so long to post photos, we ran out of internet and I couldn't get on instructables very easily
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
I didn't do an executioner helmet, but I want to thank you for the tip on using a rollerblading helmet for the dome. I would have spent weeks trying to make a dome from scratch!
Well, I still need to put bondo stuff on and paint, but it's otherwise finished and I'll post another when I paint. It'll be done this weekend ;)
Hey, the pic didn't post ... oh well I'll do it on the computer when it's done
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
What did you do to get the plates to attach to your bodysuit? Did you just put Velcro strips on both?
Ok thanks cause I can't get the angles right so I'll do that
Oh, ok that simplifies things. I thought you could actually put stuff in it
Ok I'll do that. One last question though: does the backpack you have actually function as a backpack, or is it just made to look like one?
They didn't make much sense, so I decided to wing it. Are you telling me that they make more sense on paper then on the computer screen?
actually never mind. I think I've got it, I just couldn't see the visor from a good angle because I was trying to see how it looked while it was on my head :D
do you have a template, or know where to find one?
ok, I've got a couple final questions: how far around the helmet does the visor piece (not the visor; the piece around it) go?how far down does the visor go in relation to how wide it is?did you tilt the rollerblading helmet down a bit when attaching the pieces? it looks like it's tilted forward
yeah, I guess there is that. but it's too late now, at least for that gauntlet
I'll try. it's gonna be an expensive plane ticket, though
yeah, I finally figured out the durable cardboard thing. turns out I still need a product, but It'll probably be done within a week or two. all I have after that is to paint it
details like what?
well, I know I should probably be putting this in the left gauntlet instructable, but I'm feeling lazy
I have made a gauntlet, I'm planning on taking pics and posting them later after school. and I'm working on a second one, a DC-15s blaster rifle, and am going to start some armor plates soon
and, wow! Russia is pretty. history books always make it sound really harsh, but it doesn't look any different than here in northern America
ok. I thought maybe it was the car stuff, but it looked like it darkened the view from inside as well so I wasn't sure

what did you use for the tinting? all I can find anywhere is mirror tinting, and that doesn't quite seem right
that's cool! I'll probably use this next year when I make an RC costume, although I don't think I'll add the bombs. thanks!P.S. where were those photos taken? I've never learned much about it, so correct me if I'm wrong, but I always got the impression that Russia was snowier than that
this is really cool, although it's way out of my price range. well done!
this sounds really cool! how much would this most likely cost, assuming I already had the shoes?
I did not know that, but we don't have our TV connected to anything but a wii and the DVD. thanks for the warning, though!
oh and PS your new armor and helmet paint job look BOSS
what, someone else did it for you?
dude, that's sweet! how did you make the second photo of yourself? photoshop?
