if you have room you could try putting a felt patch in your holster where it rubs.

You could always stretch the leather a bit too.  Soak it in some boiling water for a few, then put something larger than the gun barrel down in it, and let it dry.  That should help give you more room for the flash suppressor.  I think part of the problem is that Rubie's blasters have a tendancy to have non-cannon dimensions. I know for a fact it's extremely bad on the Westar-34's.

I have one of sidi's vest and I can tell you, definitely top notch quality!

For your cape, I feel like it should have some jagged edges along the bottom. It's got some good damage and weathering in the middle but I feel like maybe it should be like that on the edges too.  Just my opinion :)

Not sure if you've come up with a solution for your holster yet but have you thought of lining it with a softer material? I'm sure cotton or something soft but sturdy could help with avoiding scratches on your blaster.

Good to know! I also bought a girth belt off of Sidi and it's also top quality work.

For the cape I'll see what I can do for the weathering at the bottom. I agree it can be ripped up at the bottom a bit.

Thanks vod!  8) Your comments are greatly appreciated! I'm moving over to my helmet build log, that's floating around the helmet section!  ;D

Best thing I've found for conditioning leather holster interiors is paraffin wax.
1. Take a small piece and rub the inside of the holster real well until it has a nice smooth feel.
2. Use a hair dryer (heat guns get too hot) set on high and blow across the wax in the holster for a minute or two.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until satisfied.
Not only does the wax help smooth the inside, but the heat and rubbing help to stretch and shape the leather a bit.

If those are your official pants, it looks like they could use some hemming. Especially if you're going to tuck into boots, but even if not. You don't need a trip hazard when you've got limited bucket vision.

Very true, vod. Thank you for pointing that out.  ;D

I've never heard of this method before vod. I'll for sure give it a shot! Thanks!   ;D
