Title: First Build (Pre Vizsla S4/5 - Flightsuit Questions
Post by: EatPrayNub on Feb 11, 2020, 02:59 PM
Hey All,

While my 3D printer is hard at work building my armor, I'm looking into options for my soft parts - specifically, a flightsuit. I've seen a few people do a medium grey or olive green flightsuit, but based on the following images of S4/5 Pre Vizsla, I think his suit is a lighter shade of green - though to be fair the suit is dirty/weathered. He's also got double-sleeves. I found these "Spruce Green" coveralls and a short-sleeve shirt of the same color, which I was thinking I could wear over the coveralls for the double-sleeve effect. When it comes to weathering the pictured coveralls, is there an easy way to weather the whole thing? Would I just try to lightly spray paint gray over the green? All suggestions and advice are welcome, as this is my first build!  :vizsla:

I think it *could* work if the tailoring and such is done well. I would double check with the approval team to make sure it would be fine for approval and keep your ruusalor informed as well.

For soft goods weathering, you can mist various spray paints (browns, blacks, tans, etc) over the goods. Lay on the ground, mist (donít directly spray) over and let the paint fall onto the fabric.

I appreciate the advice, and will check with the approval team as well! Thanks!
