After 20 some-odd years of dealing with my costuming obsession, my wife has decided that she wants to start costuming with me. Sabine is the one that she chose.
I think the Rubies 2-piece Jango is the helmet to mod for this build. It fits her narrow frame and the visor can be easily modded. The ear caps are come detached but they are crap anyhoo. This helmet is FLIMSY. I am going to beef it up with some resin.
The tarsal guard that she has on her boots can be cut from the inside of a 3-inch PVC elbow. I am going to see if the shoulders can be made for what's left over after I cut those out. The bands on the ends should made good elbow plates.
For starters on the pants, I am using Jeggings from Wally World. We searched High and low for the right fabric. I may dust the darker fabric with some O.D. spray dye.

Her boots have a wedge heel

Regular gauntlets do not reach far enough up the arm. I think gloves like these are needed. Trimmed to fit of course.

I like the idea of the PVC for armor!

I think the gloves you have pictured might be too long? I think you want the glove to stop well below the elbow. I was thinking something like

The idea was to get them long and then adjust the length.

Her gunbelt seems similar in construction to Han Solo's rig.

I had some scrap leather, so I am playing with her gun rig. It's the best i could do with what I had.

Missing some pix! I'll fix the links.

Tammy's helmet came in from the Mandalorian Arsenal today!


I buggered up the Rubie's bucket so bad I had to toss it.

Currently beefing up the sides of this bucket with some resin. While I was doing that, I made a little progress on the hard parts.

This is WAY outside the box for her. Be nice.
I know, it needs the chest diamond.

Great thread Charles!

Before she submits this, I would recommend moving the belt up to her hips to the top of her leggings. The belt is hanging too low right now.

The belt leather strips also look a bit thin, but I will be able to review the size better once she moves them up.

I also definitely recommend trimming up some of the armor. Some of the pieces look much too large for her. The boot armor, knee armor, elbow armor, and the sides of the chest armor will need to be trimmed.

Thank you for telling me about the chest diamond in progress! Smile

The helmet also looks very pink and should be the same burgundy color as the rest of the armor.

The gloves look very tight and will need to flare out towards the forearm.

The wig looks great!

Please keep us posted on this!

Repaint the bucket? Well intercourse a canard! I could have sworn that that Bubblegum color was what was being used on the other helmets.
http://www.starwars.com/news/rise-of-the-mandalorian-mercs-part-5-enter-sabine



The belt is 1" wide. I'll tighten it up a bit.
I made it out of some spare holster leather that I had laying around back in Early May. That was before the CRL. There are some close up pix further up in the thread. BTW, I have included a detail on the sides of this belt that I don't think I've seen yet in the other approved costumes.


I am going to shorten the bottom width of the chest plates to roughly HALF of what it is right now.

The tarsal armor on her arches has been cut way back.

I'll make new knees. Is the elastic the right size?

Can I get you to reconsider the elbows?

It's not a problem with the dark pink color- the problem is your helmet's color needs to match and be consistent with the other armor's color.

Yes, I will need a back photo of the elbow armor.

Looking really good!

I wonder if the armor pieces that appear too big, might just not be formed enough.

For instance - do the boot cover armor pieces contour to the boot? I had to heat mine up with hot air gun, then curve them to fit.

My other suggestion for accuracy would be a wider belt. I think it would look better at 1.5 to 2 inches wide.
The leather straps hanging down to the holsters are then more like the narrower width that you have them.

RE - the helmet - I agree yours looks too pastel ish pink compared to the rest of your armour... But - is the helmet not an optional piece for approval?
