    There's a fairly in depth reference gallery if you click the main Mandalore sub-forum, as well.

    Sintra Mandalore the Ultimate

    I would but I just found the picture on google and I can’t find any more references like it. I think im just going to try and copy the one in the Crl but I’m going to have to do some more research first I’m almost out of Sinatra and have to get more and the mask needs to be fixed so I’m going to take my time and do this right. I’m going to look at the games for that 360 view if I can find it I may go with that.

    If you have a 360 view of the one you are using that shows good details, you can do that version and submit it as its own CRL. The 360 view is usually the kicker for that aspect with new costumes as there is always one view (usually the back or the knees down) that are never seen and can't be validated.

    Just make sure you stay consistent with the entire reference. One thing I see quite a bit are people cherry-picking parts of different references and sticking them together. That's a no-no!

    Sintra Mandalore the Ultimate

    Thanks for the info it helps I did end up contacting my gml and am waiting for a response. If this was almost any other suit of armor there is no way that I would make it out of Sinatra but this one is simular to my Mando armor so I think I can get the details required. And I will definitely contact my local garrison I’ve trooped with them before and they are some nice guys. I’m currently working on the mask I plan to mold it and make multiple so I can cold cast one to give it a try. I don’t think that would work for the aprooved armor because some of the other parts of the armor would have to match. And finding paint that would match would be doficult. Im still working on it. this is one of the references from the game that i have been using along with the pics from the crl to make the mask.

    It is never a bad idea to contact GMLs before you start just to get to know folks in your area. Some garrisons do armor parties, and the ability to get in-person advice on the actual build process is always a benefit. Plus, you can at least start to get to know the folks in your area and make it a smooth transition into membership after approval. It is always a VERY good (dare I say, should be required) step to contact the Detachment that you are building the character for, since we are the specialists for details and the nitty gritty that the general Legion wouldn't have. With regards to the approval of sintra and styrene, my only comments are that it comes down to being able to replicate the armor from references. The important thing should be the quality and surface finish of the final product (lumps, dents, divets, bubbles, etc that would alter the surface of your armor), troop-ability, durability, and weight. As a MM, you probably have already seen the differences that people have provided between ABS, resin, and metal armor in those areas. If it is meant to be armor, it shouldn't bend when you walk (hence, no foam). It should have a smooth surface overall, with some weathering. It should take into consideration where you live (certain plastics react and age differently in colder climates). So, the short answer is yes, those materials are approvable so long as you are able to replicate the details and structure of the references while also taking into consideration wear and tear in your climate.

    Names Called While Trooping

    As the Sith Stalker... Most commonly as above... "who are you?" But I have been called a "Transformer" having said that though... twice I have had children, both around 10-12, actually tell me who I was... I was astounded!!! Needless to say they got the biggest high fives and lots of praise from me

    Mara Jade Arica Build

    Hello everyone! I am so excited to post my WIP thread for my Arica costume. I'm a teacher so during the summer I have downtime and decided to work on this costume for dual legion approval. The one thing I found was that there isn't a lot of source material for this particular costume. Just a few shots and fan art. I researched what others had done and kind of went with it from there. This is my primary reference photo. I was able to find a great knit fabric at JoAnn's on sale this week and bought 3 yards. In hindsight, prob could have used 2 or less but yay extra fabric in case of mistakes! https://www.joann.com/halloween-spirit-collection-costume-knit-black-fabric/11744018.html#prefn1=collection&prefn2=type&prefv1=Halloween%20Costume%2FDecor%20Fabric&prefv2=Knits&addShipToHomeConditions=false&start=1 The skirt I basically cut two panels (almost identical to Slave Leia skirt panels) and when I cut, I added a side band. I stitched the panels together at the sides and added a belt loop over the seam per the standard requirement. For the cape, I lay flat on the material and measured my wingspan. I initially cut it too long as shown here: But after conferring with a judge on the 501st side, I shortened it by 12 inches. I was able to find some random jewelry at Claire's for the circlet and bracelets needed. I bought very pliable bracelets and bent them in place and hand stitched the fabric around them. I am going to take the top ones and position them a little closer so I have more of a drape but overall I like how this came out. I found a mesh black bodysuit at Windsor and it works perfectly! All I need to do is stitch the blue bra portion to it. https://www.windsorstore.com/product/On-A-Mood-Mesh-Bodysuit-060010082 I found a headband at Claire's that worked great for the circlet! It had some mesh gold lace over it but I was able to cut it off and have a plain silver one. I then bought blue/teal gems at Joann's and glued them to the headband at my temples. I found thigh high dance warmers and am just waiting for them to arrive but I used these as placeholders for now. I also lucked out and found a blue bikini bottom that matches my skirt so I can wear it under my skirt for modesty and not worry about anything showing through. I am wearing silver sandals but also have these in black. Would the silver be approved or should I change them to black for my submission shots? Here is my step by step how to for how I did the bodysuit "bandeau". As mentioned in my previous post, I had already purchased a mesh bodysuit from Windsor and was using that as my base. I put the bodysuit on and measured roughly what areas I would need covered and how long the piece would need to be. Once I had those measurements, I took some scrap fabric and marked the length and width and also the center of the piece so I would know where to curve it in etc. I then sketched out the wings and the center pattern just to see if everything aligned how I needed it to. I cut out the mock piece and pinned it to me to see if it covered everything I needed it to. I realized my mistake only after doing this. I had measured with my bra ON and since I won't really be able to wear one with this (yay pasties :( ) I had to remeasure without a bra to get the accurate sizing I needed. Once i was satisfied with the overall look, I then cut out my mock pattern onto newspaper so I could have a paper pattern to work off of on my actual fabric. I cut my pattern on the fold so that both sides of the wings would be the same and added about half an inch for seam allowance. I cut two pieces and pinned them together before sewing. The knit was a tad slippery so I really made sure everything aligned before I put it all together. I ended up making the wings a bit thinner and more finger shaped and that helped a lot when placing on my actual bodysuit. Once the actual bandeau piece was sewn together, I tried it on with my bodysuit to make sure it was sewn in the correct spot and everything was covered. Luckily, it did. :mrgreen: It wasn't too difficult to attach it once it was pinned so then I simply sewed the bandeau piece to the bodysuit itself. Once that was done, I put the bodysuit in an embroidery hoop to center the designs I needed to add to it. Because its a bodysuit, it provides more support on top and for that I am thankful. I did a full try on with all the pieces and am very happy with how its all come together. My thigh high dance tights should arrive tomorrow and then I can make submission pics. I ended up remaking my skirt and used an overlock machine so it wouldn't pull at the sides. I also patterned this second version differently. I cut two rectangles across my front that were the proper length and then cut a side 3.5 inch rectangular piece to attach. This worked a lot better in terms of construction. I then made 2 belt loops for each side. One is required but figured I might as well add both just to keep it even. The belt loops went over the seam lines and attached at the back. I have a wig that I forgot I owned. It was a tad long so I trimmed the back slightly to match the reference and voila! Done! I took submission photos and think I am ready to go. Any comments or tips are appreciated. Thank you!
