    Starting anew!

    To combine the different costume threads from the old forums lets all talk here!

    As before, i wanted to know peoples interest in costume workshop style get togethers so we can put our collective creative powers together! I know we have (as always it seems) a busy few months ahead of us and this is by no means something that needs to be rushed but if the stars align i know it would be a fun time :)

    but other than that post all costume related ramblings here! ideas, questions, comments, concerns, etc, whatever! ask away and lets have fun!

    I'd be interested in not only building some Mandalorian armor but joining with 2-4 or more others on a theme to make our own "tribe"

    The prices for the premium files are listed in the second link. There is Boba fett armor listed for free helmet, shoulder, knees, chest back, elbows, I think codpiece as well. Android even the jeypack.

    I would do a mandolin tribe. Id do a demagol or demagolesque.

    I don't have a rpf account so I can't view the link. If I have a chance later I will sign up.

    Not too attracted to Crusader or Neo-Crusader armor; Ultra-Crusader armor, however, looks quite bad ass IMO. But, generally more interested in working off of the Shocktrooper or Modern Era design.

    It may just be me Dave. I would love to get a small Buffalo based mando unit. Various shapes and sizes ready for war!

    nothing dumb about it! no worries :) they are 3d images of the armor from the pepakura viewer program. there is no color or texture because they are not needed in the files. some of them, like the droids on there are more wirey looking but we anret too worries about droids right now hehe. if you do a google search for pepakura viewer and download some of the free files you will get a better idea of how it all comes together.

    Only thing I don't like about the rpf, is that they are SO critical on costume pieces. More so than the 3 SW costuming groups. It is super helpful with trying to find exact movie props, though.

    What would you guys think if I did a Spider-Man inspired Mandalorian? I'll call myself, "The Amazing Spider-Mando"

    Biased I am but I think it's great idea Steve. I would love to be a mando. And for Biz and Karen, I could be a Mando-tee. The underwater mando. They will get it.
