It really was even cooler in person at SWCO!  Loved the paint job and meant to come tell you that face to face!   :)

Hey y'all I have been working on upgrading my kit, starting with my waist item I fondly refer to as my mando miniskirt (I'll show pictures as soon as I make the switch from photobucket). What I really want to ask about is shin plates. I love my boots, but because my armor is all about vision distortion, I feel the pattern should continue down to my feet. What do y'all recommend for attaching shin plates so they are as comfortable as possible and retain as much movement as possible? Should I get tall boots and attach them to those? I also considered making duck cloth gators and attaching them to that instead of my flight suit. Let me know what you think!

I personally find that wearing tall boots and attaching the boots in the same method as my vest works best since the armor won't budge or come loose unless a bolt pops. But it does mean completely dedicating a nice pair of boots for the costume.

I have a PSA and I'm not sure where to put it, so I'm putting it here and in my brigade WIP. So my back plate is designed to hold a camel bak. However, due to the bulk I have to remove the plate every time I de-kit. My kit has seen 1 year of action and my Velcro is wearing down to the point where it can hardly hold my back plate even if I don't have water in it.

Here is the PSA part: turns out, I used a "designer" type Velcro instead of industrial. Designer is meant for more delicate sewing projects and the Velcro is less stiff, more form fitting. I figured Velcro is Velcro; this was wrong! Even if you have a fitted vest (mine is fitted as it has darts on front and back) use heavy duty Velcro if you have a back plate you always remove!


It's an easily avoidable mistake I'm paying for, I will have to remove all of this Velcro and replace it with heavy duty Velcro if I want to keep my backplate and, more importantly, keep carrying water.

Alright I decided to ditch the mando skirt and make a girth belt, so here it goes. First, I made a new jersey sash that is shorter than my previous mando skirt. It fits way better, but I'll have to make kamas or something to cover by behind, which was the original intent of the skirt. Next I bought this cool looking braded rope band from Joann's fabrics. The plan is to have 3 layers (here I'm just testing for size). This stuff frays like crazy, I have a few ideas on how I'd like to overcome that challenge, and I'll show you guys what I come up with. Stay tuned!
