    After seeing some great costume coming from this game i just had to have a go myself :)

    Ive used Imperial surplus as he has loads of pics on how he build his.
    on there was the templates of the jedi armour and i got to work replicating these

    Then it was off to get the sintra (thermoplastc) I then started on the chest building layers

    Using this method of building up layers gives the armour the "body" rather then it look flat.
    I then got started on the cod/belt.

    same with the legs and hand plates

    As i didnt have any belt boxes i used some left over sintra and foam covered in pleather
    which i think turned out really well :)

    Once it was all put together, heated and put to shape i then got to work with the p38
    make shims so the gauntlets and legs were seamless and also filling the edges of the whole suit
    so you couldnt tell it was made in layers. i then took my engraving tool on my dremel to do the ridges
    around the armour.

    i then got to work painting. I chose to go with an olive and tinted blue (which looks silver) lol
    once the green base was painted on i then sprayed with the blue and then another light spray
    on top to give a 2 tone effect.

    with the lower legs i did have the intenton on making these fully rounded and seamless
    but when trying the armour on it was impossible to move and walk around. this is when i noticed
    that in the swtor freeze mob video they only had the front half on with it being strapped around
    leg.

    then to finish it off i made the boot covers with an edging along the sides

    And heres the final effect :) hope you enjoyed this as much as i did making it!
