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

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?
