Angie’s Mando

So after a great day at Fan Expo, we followed it up with a Build Party!!!

Work on Ange’s mando is progressing. Her helmet arrived but was in really rough shape.

Lots of sanding and cutting and glazing was needed. Still more needed.

Trimming and sanding the armor

While I worked on the helmet, the girls were finishing the trimming and sanding of the pieces they had.

After a few hours, I needed a break, so we started forming the armor. I’d heat the Sintra with the heat gun, then they’d be pressed on the body to take it’s shape. We would then dunk it in a bucket of water to shock it.

I continued work on the helmet yesterday and it’s getting there. The widow’s peak is still warped. I’ll probably need to reinforce it from the inside with metal or something.
