    I'm quite intrigued. I think it would ultimately come down to cost but I'm interested.

    Indeed, very intriguing. Cost would be my concern, but I too am interested.

    I'm in and think both a common color palette of white, black, and gray as well as a "unit" symbol are all we need to make it visually clear that we are one.

    I think this is a great idea and I would like to build one sometime. It will be a while before I can take on the project. But I'm willing to participate in the planning process and I will do this project progress...

    cost will come later and thats when we can decide (and if we have a have to get discounts) to do a large group order for supplies or go in separately. We will be striving for the best quality we can make but also keep the price as sensible as possible.

    everyone is welcome in this discussion. this is for the north ridge and will ultimately represent the north ridge as well. all opinions are welcome!

    In regards to helmets, buckets, lids, and any other form of that nature.

    I will bring it up and open it for discussion at the meeting on saturday.

    Afterwards, if something is decided or whatever does get discussed i will send out in an email for everyone to be up to speed

    On saturday night those in attendance we can chat it up a bit about this project and make it known to the rest of the group if they havent seen this thread yet. after that we can really get cooking with ideas. general information about the project will be kept on here, as well as examples, sample images, and resources. specific information will be sent in an email group i will compile after the meeting. things like personal designs(if you have drawings or what have you), emblem ideas, and other specific details that you dont want revealed on the forums.

    so ill let let this simmer and let people voice their interest and then next week we will open up discussion and really get moving!

    and jsut to add, yes these are snow mandos. but these are their snow mandos and ours will be of our own design and made how we like.

    see other custom armor just helps with coming up with your own desings sometimes.

    showcasing more diversity in the mando armor. there is more to it than being "a boba fett"

    here is a custom mando done by TNXB creations and anna von winter.

    i know her knee armor is halo odst armor pieces and it looks awesome. so you can always have other inspirations from outside the star wars universe.

    also showing off not all mandos need jetpacks.

    I'm getting excited for this project. I was thinking about the costume and what might make them functional as well as cool. I started looking at what the US Army does for extreme cold weather and came up with some gloves and boots that we might either use as a model to make our own or buy and modify...
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Just some ideas. Of course we would want the gloves in some shade of white or grey. I would incorporate shin armor or padded boot gators, with maybe some fur lining. Something similar for the gloves. And maybe some padded "armor" under the hard pieces. Something similar to what the rebel soldiers wore on Hoth...

    Just wondering, while I like the look of these images and ideas, will our Snow Mandos be only bearable to wear during actual Winter and otherwise a wearable weight-loss program?

    IM sure we will be trying to make as lightweight as possible ...just think were using white/gray or some kinda winter color scheme...the only thing that will be hard not to make lightweight is if we decide to all wear same boots (mukluks)
