Velek Tyr'en Armor by Opergeist Velek Tyr'en Armor by Opergeist
Armor for my own custom Mandalorian. The sketch is in my scraps, I believe.

The helm is made of paper mache, plastic trashcans and assorted parts. It is air conditioned and can accomodate a headset microphone.

The armor itself is plastic with a leather flak vest.

Your attention to detail is awesome, you've added little things here and there that make all the difference. Plus your colour scheme is brilliant. You've done a hell of a job!

Thanks very much. Far from the best out there, but not so bad for cardboard.

God, man. You're a genius. I particularly love your Phantom stuff, though, both costumes and drawings. Could you please check my drawings out and give me some tips? They would be greatly appreciated. :) Keep up the great work!

OOoh, I was about to comment how clustered it must feel in that mask, before you mentioned that air conditioning. A real Mandalorian indeed! I absolutely love how...damaged it looked. Definitely adds to a very personal character effect.

And where did you get that delicious gun, might I inquire?

Awesome job, man, you turned your sketch into a great beskar'gam! :D

I love the weathered look, very realistic. The helmet looks nifty, too, doesn't look like paper at all.

Now, if you could just get us a sharp photo of this... =P
