    Hey there!
    Earlier this year I decided to start work on my own Star Wars Mandalorian costume! This suit is all 3D printed! Smoothed out and painted all by myself. The fabric parts were created by my lovely girlfriend!

    [​IMG]
    This is the first helmet I made, based off of Jango Fett's helmet. This version didn't last long as it looked to similar to Jango's actual paint job and it felt too generic and less personalised.
    [​IMG]
    Here's the first 'finished' version. I was happy with it at the time but it felt a little too plain and was very imperfect in some areas. It was a pain to put on and it just didn't feel sturdy and great quality.

    [​IMG]
    This is the second and current helmet, far superior to the previous. The last helmet felt very boring and wasn't really that comfortable. This helmet has fans build in to prevent fogging up, which was a big issue with it's predecessor. The paint job is more unique here too and I improved on my realistic weathering and paint chipping! Super happy with this helmet!

    Here it is! I'm super happy with how it's looking atm! Since it's an OC (Original creation) it never has to be 'finished'
    I'll always add and change stuff with this to keep myself busy and satisfied!

    Thanks for checking this out! This has been a dream since I was 6 when I first made a Mandalorian helmet out of paper templates and duct tape:grin:
    It's surreal putting this on and I always have a huge cheeky grin when I'm kitted up.
    Let me know what you think! A lot of hard work has gone into this and I'd love to see some feedback!
    Cheers everyone!

    Looks dope man! I really don't understand how people can create their own cosplays and pull them off haha, I would have 0 idea on how to even start, and it looks good on you too!

    Thank you! And yeah I wasn't sure where to start I was all over the place thinking about how I'd even do this until I landed on getting a 3D printed. A printer really opens up cosplayers to many more possibilities!
