Thanks everyone!

Looks real.

I definitely wanted it to look real instead of like a gun belt I just threw together for a costume.

If you have a recurring problem with the girth belt shifting, you can always put a little square of velcro on it and on the flightsuit where you want it to stay. Looking good though, the color choices are very nice.

And this was my first attempt at dishing. 

You're my hero. :)

Your armor is coming along beautifully! I really like the attention that you've given to the "little" things-- Your vest and accessories are stunning. Thanks for sharing the Butterick pattern numbers, too! I ended up patterning mine out myself, and because of that, I'll be revisiting it soon. ;)

I'm seconding what Ca'tra said.  I have some velcro on the bottom of my armor vest, and the inside of my girth belt that keeps it from sliding down.

I've still been slowly but surely working on my armor.  We've been scratchbuilding our helmets using Jaiden Turr'n Verda's Home Depot Bucket Tutorial.  The dome is a used batting helmet and the cheeks are For Rent signs.  We still have to put in the lower cheek pieces and we're planning to fiberglass the inside.



Ca'tra and Novall:  Thanks for the advice about the velcro.  I'll have to try that.

Arch and seugtai:  Thanks for the compliments!

This looks like it may be a bit of an older thread but I just wanted to say, uh... "VORNSKR! <3 <3 <3"

Ahem.

Any idea as to how you're going to put the vornsrk on your chestplate?  I'd really like to do  the same, but I'm finding very little reference art to work with.

Appreciate it, man. I keep in touch with her in other ways as well. I just posted in case she did jump on.

Thanks again.
