Oh man I never noticed those spikes on your gauntlets before. Actually I don't know if I've ever seen your kit in person. And I was just over at your house. DAMN. lol x)
The weathering looks so sick, I can't wait to see how you dirty up your fett.

They are in a fairly constant state of upgrade actually. Initially, though, I heated a sheet of 6mm sintra in the oven until it was very bendable, then curved it around my arm with the cuff smaller than the opposite end, then cut away the excess

Very well made vod! Would cardboard be a good material to use to make a gaunlet?

cardboard wouldn't be a good material to use for anything but packing up if you are moving...

costuming is expensive. rubbermaid tubs are on the cheaper end. Sign shops often have scrap plastic or sintra that they will sell you cheap as well.

Nice chestplate insignia. It looks vaguely Celtic.

Hey, is it okay if I use this as a reference photo for a picture I'm planning on drawing?

That symbol is something that means a lot to me. Originally it was just the celtic symbol, but after being called the "celtic mando" I modified it to include elements of Boba Fett's chest symbol as well. Though I was never fully satisfied with it, since it was not an in-universe element. I have since replaced it with an dirty orange Rebel insignia.

Thank you for the comment, and yes of course you may use the photo for reference.

Too bad. That symbol was awesome. Custom symbols like that (I think) give a great amount of mystique to a character. People see the symbol and think, "hm, I wonder what that stands for?" Makes a great backstory for any Mando character.

Thanks for letting me use the picture, ner vod! I'll send you a link when I'm done with it.

Ya it wasn't something I made up though, it's actually the celtic symbol for adventure. Legendary Pictures (Watchmen, Dark Knight) uses it as well as some other clothing items I've purchased over the years

Response is almost two years late but:

I think it's the tiny hint of a smirk that does it.

Love this.  Will gladly favorite anymore like it.  :)

I love the decal on the upper right corner. Celtic combined with something else... Nice.

Thank you, it's a mix between Boba Fett's crest and the celtic symbol of adventure
