Awesome information vod!  I read that the costume rules have changed and that T-Shirt flak vests were no longer acceptable.  Can someone please describe to me what a T-Shirt flak vest is so I can avoid such things?

Taking a t-shirt or sweater, cutting the arms off, attaching armor.

Reason for it is that the material that t-shirt and sweaters are made of are made to stretch a bit.  When you try to attach armor to it, the material stretches and the armor tends to sag and sit unevenly.  While you can surely use a t-shirt to help develop a pattern for your vest, I would recommend using a heavy cotton or vinyl for the vest itself.
