Test Fit!
Suited up at the armor party this afternoon with the flight suit, flak vest, and helmet to see how it all looks together! Then we taped the armor plates to the flak to see how we were looking:





Pretty happy with how everything is fitting so far. More to come soon!

Spats (COMPLETE)

Just finished up my spats! Finally cracked this sewing machine (I think), and they came out pretty well! Gonna tackle the neck seal tonight.



I then weathered the spats!

Su'cuy Catra! For the brown, I used Krylon Colormaxxx Matte Coffee Bean. For the brick color on the cheeks, I'm using Krylon Fusion All-In-One Satin Brick.

Thnaks! I will look for those colors.

Neck Seal (COMPLETE)

As previously mentioned in this WIP thread, the neckline on the flak vest goes down WAY too low for me to attach my collar armor. That's a problem, but after talking with an Alor'ad  and Russ'alor, a neck seal with a bib on it was the consensus rather than scrap the vest entirely (which I almost did). So! I did some digging and found this lovely pattern on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/listing/758092956/space-mercenary-neck-seal-pattern?epik=dj0yJnU9Y1p6aEh0QzNsSWJ6VUdBRC1GbVVVRzJ2YlNIRXZzeXQmcD0wJm49U0xXNktJbkptemFpa2dwT2RnMjV1USZ0PUFBQUFBR0VIZmFB

It has a bib built in and is really easy to make even for a novice like myself! I was able to knock it out on my first attempt. Here's what it looks like test fitted with the flak vest:









This solves the issue pretty well I'd say. With the collar armor on now, it'll have a seamless look to it.

I then weathered the neck seal (see last page for reference)

Looking good. Keep it up  :like:

Vest appears to kip up the left side. Are you planning to cover the visible zipper?

No zipper! That's velcro but the photo definitely makes it look like it's a zipper. There's no visible Velcro when it's closed, it just looks off probably because I did a REAL quick fit because I was excited lol.

Girth Belt (COMPLETE)

Thanks to Bade Duun for the girth belt! I had to modify it to fit me, but I think it looks perfect for my kit! The colors blend really well and it fits like a glove.
