Specs_Avatar Soft Parts WIP*Pic Heavy*
« on: May 11, 2014, 05:23 PM »
So with my helmet WIP nearing a close it is time to decide on soft parts for my suit. So here's what I'm currently thinking of:

Flightsuit
Tru-Spec 27/P Flight Suit Black
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0058DG8BY/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=20WH7YOK0ZEZD&coliid=I1HV7G8EY0WGI0&psc=1

Gloves
Hatch NS430 all-weather neoprene shooting gloves
http://www.amazon.com/Hatch-Specialist-All-Weather-Shooting-Glove/dp/B0013C7ZFM/ref=sr_1_1?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1399841738&sr=1-1&keywords=shooting+gloves

Boots
Finding the boots I wanted for my suit was harder than I thought it would be. All I know is I wanted slip-on boots so they could be similar to Boba's boots. Finding an affordable pair was the hard part. I looked hard and found these:
http://www.amazon.com/Giorgio-Brutini-66059-Boots-Black/dp/B003Z9A4AY/ref=sr_1_1?s=shoes&ie=UTF8&qid=1399862389&sr=1-1&keywords=giorgio+brutini+66059
So tell me what you guys think about these boots, reviews on them seem solid so they seem like a good fit.

For those who aren't following my WIP posts as of yet, my suit will be inspired by Ghes Orade. Pictures are below:

There is only one reference image to Ghes and his armor. This is all I have to work with and from what I can tell no one can find more information on how he appears in the Expanded Universe books.

Making progress. Gloves and boots came in while I wait for the flightsuit to arrive next week.
EDIT: Flightsuit came in today! Legs are long, but will tailor them if need be after I finish the armor plates.

Gloves:




Boots:







Current plan for the vest is to do the Calidus Dartome method: http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=22566.0

Thank you vod. My flight suit came in last week as well (way earlier than expected), but with school and cutting out armor plates from PVC I haven't made time to take pictures of the progress. Hopefully soon!
