Boots, Gloves, and Vest Patterns Oh My!
« on: Feb 25, 2018, 09:26 AM »
Update!
I've decided to use a pair of shoes that my sister let me have for this, I'm wondering how they fit me. (Probably witchcraft) :P I'm going to do leg wraps to cover the laces AND the zipper. I've posted a mock up of that idea here as well. Let me know what you think.




Next up, my vest.
I've decided I'm going to try and alter a pattern I found while surfing the forum. I'm going with the one on the right and plan to bring up the collar so it doesn't dip down so much. Also, going to use black duck cloth or similar material for it.



Next, gloves! I found these at my local Goodwill before I was even sure about starting my kit. I really like the pattern on the palm. :)



I've got some khaki pants that I'd really like to use for this, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to find a shirt to match it. :'( I'll post some pics of them later on.

For my undersleeves, I'll likely sacrifice a shirt to the costuming gods and sew it into my flight suit top.

Kama wise, I have no idea. I honestly don't even have a design scheme for it yet, I just know I want to do one.

I'm stuck between either a darker red, gray, or off white waist sash under my ammo/holster belt.

Feel free to comment and critique. Everything helps.

I wasthinking of modding that pattern myself, I've also got another similar simplicity pattern I might see if I can't frankenstein bits from!

Super sorry for the necropost, but I finally had time and motivation to get stuff going again.
Also, please ignore the very dirty mirror, my pajamas, and my sister's friends' swimsuits. ;D

Started on a loincloth/sash combo and plan to get my kama going soon.

Belt is pretty cool, it has a little D-ring on the second loop. I may have an idea to incorporate it into a holster somehow.

Found this interesting jacket at the goodwill and am currently working on turning it into an armor vest. We'll see how that goes. :rolleyes:

Your loin cloth + sash look great. I'm not entirely sure about the jacket. You will have to cover the zipper to the very least. I don't imagine that it will be easy to mount plates unless you remove all of the buttons. And it just seems like a really cool jacket on its own - but I'm curious to see what you will do with it.

I've already removed the buttons and am also going to use the collar material as a zipper cover.

Why use a sewing machine when you can torture yourself with hand sewing? :'(

This thread is not dead! I got new boots, so no more wraps, I'll have shin plates instead. Also new pants, so I'm likely to scrap the kama, or save it for another future kit. My old pants had pockets that the kama hid and I'm not feeling it anymore.
