Worked on the Kama and I got a good bit done on it today.

Took some measurement I got from Force Crush and made a pattern template. I used the backside of some gift wrapping paper to make the pattern because it has the 1" grid on the back.

Image

Image

Image


I pinned the template to the fabric then cut it out, adding a few inches to the length for my height.

Image

Image

I then pinned the cut Kama together and got a SW belt I had and tried it on just to see how it will mostly look when it's all sewn up and finished.

Image

Image

Image

Image

I'm very happy with the way it turned out. I'm going to wait and sew it up once armor and correct belt gets here so I can get a better feel for the length and width of it with the new belt and added ab plate.

Let me know of anything I could do better or any advice you can give me on anything I've posted so far! Thanks for the help everyone!

The Kama comes too far forward on you. It should line up with the middle of your thighs and not wrap around to the front of your leg

It will be taken in a few inches on both sides. It's doubled over and not sewn together yet. Same with the length. It might be a little shorter than it is in those pics. I'll have a little play with the length though. Is the length as it is now good?

The length should sit at about your knees when it is all sewn together

Yeah, I'm gonna do some more to it once the armor gets here! And good news, I was just told It'll be shipped out on Monday! I didn't wan to sew it or do much testing with it until I got the ab plate looking right and fitted.

Here's some updates on my build!

My armor arrived on Valentines Day.

Image

It all came in a relatively small box and was pretty dirty and all scuffed up. I wasn't 'really' worried about that since I'm painting it anyway. I then noticed that the ab plate was cut... Both of the sides were cut off and I was going to need those parts because I was going to have to mod it anyway to get it looking like crl. Then I noticed that the vambraces weren't like the ones in the pics from the armor I saw. So... I messaged the seller and he's replacing the ab plate and said he'd just build me the vambraces and send them to me with the ab plate. So, that's where I am with the armor.

Here's some pics of what I've gotten cut and sanded so far.

Image

Image

Image

Had some good help, feedback and advice from some shadows out there! Carlos, Stephen, Justin, Dennis, and Damon. Thanks guys and all the others from this site, thanks, too!

Also got this nice box with wheels and a pull handle at Wal-Mart for $20!

Image

So, just waiting for my ab plate and the vambraces to arrive. In the meantime, I'm going to get these 'finished' pieces strapped and sanded. I've got a friend here that's in the 501st and he's done quite a few builds and strapping jobs and he's going to help me at his shop.

So, hope to get this finished up soon and get out there and start trooping this build!

May the Force be With You!

My new ab plate and vambraces came in.

Image

I've done some work on the vambraces as you'll see down below but nothing yet on the ab plate.

Image

The next thing I tries to tackle were my spats. None of the plastic the builder sent would cover my boots correctly in any way so I had to get an old, black trashcan that we never used and cut them out from that.

Image

I then used some clamps and a heat gun to form them and get he shape right.

Image

Image

So, spats on, unstrapped, and shin armor taped on..

Image

Next thing I wanted to do was get snapped and strapped. A friend in the 501st Carolina Garrison offered to help and I went up to his workshop and got
a lot of that finished up with just a little left to do here at my house.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Here's where I am so far with the build! Comment away!

Image

Image

Doing some painting today and tonight and will post later! MTFBWY!
