Zando's Soft parts WIP
« on: Aug 24, 2017, 02:23 PM »
Oya vode! I need some help on my flight suit and stuff, so I'll be updating this thread and my armor WIP (could use some help with my plate sizing as well): http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=138768.0

So far I have two Red cap coveralls:

48 long (more comfortable, give me better movement and lets me get an almost full squat):






And the 46 long (more fitting, but the crotch is a bit hit, and I can't raise my arms above the shoulder with out it coming up too far):







I'm thinking the 48 Long is the best, since the crotch is too high on the 46. I need to take in the legs and arms, right? If anything needs to be sown, I can probs do that or get my mum to help.

Thanks for any advice vode!

(and yeah, that hair is getting a snip snip eventually so I can fit my head in a buy'ce)

I agree that the bigger size is probably best. That being said you will definitely need to take in the arms and legs. And hem your pants and sleeves if you can.

Also if you don't want to cut your hair you can always get a headband to pull your hair back. Or just invest in a balaclava to cover your neck and flatten your hair when wearing a helmet.

I'm gonna get my hair cut shorter, but not super short (my dad will hopefully give me a mullet). And yeah, I was thinking of going with the larger size. Which is awesome, since I can cut the sleeve short, hem them, then use the sleeves off the smaller size under that, and wallah, double sleeved flight suit. I also got some velcro for around the ankles. How do I go about taking in the arms and legs though? I can sew, if I know what it is I'm doing.

Busy at work:



And ta daa! Arms and legs taken in, and a bit of the body, the rest will be covered by the vest/girth belt/cod, and I added elastic around the pants cuffs, since that's a very common pants leg ending in the Swarz apparently.

Aaaaand pictures! Here's what I've got so far for soft parts:



And a close up of one of the MP40 mag pouches:



The MP40 pouches aren't leather, unfortunately (Those are $50-60), but they are canvas reproductions. Look pretty accurate, are a nice darker grey, and most of all, only cost me $27 or something. The black leather gaiters were around that price as well, and I'm really happy with them.
