The evolution of the design. From first experimenting with the Mando Maker website to the final built design. A full length stripe turned into shorter ones on the shoulders and shins. Kill stripes moved from the chest to the gauntlet. Cape and kama were added, visor went from black to ruby red. Some small details were changed, but it stayed true to the original design.
