Overhead - Umi by hydraness Overhead - Umi by hydraness
A shot from the late winter 2009 photoshoot of Umi. I love this shot and believe it implies a lot of movement and story elements. I'd love to hear your ideas of what you think is going on.

Umi the snowy Mandalorian.

I'm not sure if you know, but this cosplay got posted to Tumblr and (as of now) has nearly 8,500 notes! 

Great job with the build and the photography!

Dynamic. This shot tells a whole story, or implies one, and I love it. Could come straight off a book cover!

I can't believe I didn't find out about this armour until today. I've looked all over the itnernet for more photos of you, and it all looks awesome. Good work!

It was at this point that Umi realised that Rancors do not respond well to "Bad Dog"!!!!!!!!

I will say this is one of the most epic shots I've seen and this is one of my top 5 favorite kits to date ever since I first saw it. Hopefully one day my kit will be as epic as this lol.

The suit looks perfect in that setting. Where was this taken?

As far as what's going on? It looks like Umi is tracking something flying above. Whether they have spotted Umi as well has yet to be seen.

Have you actually incorporated thermal clothing into this? Or were you freezing your shebs off? :P

First saw this on the Mando Mercs site, was cool then, and is still very cool now. I especially like the carbine.

The kit is actually quite warm, fortunate for cold weather settings, no so fortunate for warm summer convention conditions, hehe.
