Yep, I've already removed the logos from the gloves, so no problem there.

The vest will likely be a temporary thing. The material wasn't expensive, so I'm thinking that I could use this as a trial run, and if I like it, great, and if I don't, at least it will give me some experience.

Just as I suspected :)

If you haven't solved your flightsuit sleeves issue yet, you could just do what I did and find a very similar colored fabric at Joann's and sew on sleeves.
Outside:

Inside:


The grays aren't the same, but if it's very close and you do enough weathering, it should be passable. Good to see your build coming along!

Your progress is awesome!!!!!

I do have a suggestion:

If you can find a long sleeved shirt, you can wear the short sleeved shirt on top of the long sleeved shirt giving it a Boba Fett Jumpsuit look to it. I'm not exactly sure what they call it but i think it's called a double sleeved jumpsuit that Boba Fett wears.

Thanks, Jate ;D

And I do plan on putting long sleeves on the shirt. What I'll probably end up doing is getting a long sleeve shirt of matching material, ripping the sleeves off it and putting them on my scrubs shirt. That way I don't have to wear 2 shirts in 100 degree weather ;)

Yep, the guy at the counter said they were German ammo pouches. Do you mean how much can I put in them?

This is what they look like from the back:



and here's what I got in them. On the left I have my three (3) pocket knives and a pen. On the right is my wallet

Hmm....I think you may have convinced me to buy a pair to use as thigh pouches ner'vod....perhaps I could even stich some elastic loops under the flap to bedder hold stuff...   could probably fit an Iphone or soemthing in them too, but I don't have a phone  :(   Once i get some more materials and get set up at my new place, I'm going to look into modifying current leather pouches/holsters to better suit mando uses...I'll inform you should I get any progress on that in the future.

(yup...those are the EXACT same pouches....plus I can link either a rivet or garter to the loop ontop now that I think of it...)

Is a Kama/loincloth combo acceptable?







It was a skirt, and I had my mom dye it darker and I slit it up the front. I think it will look pretty cool with a belt and sash and things.

This is what the hems looks like as of now.

It looks ok-I would advise making it roughly knee length though  :-\    it kinda retains the skirt look a bit much at that length...

It's acceptable, though I'd say yeah, either shorten it a little or put some kind of heavier-looking material over it though the belts and stuff may take care of bulking it up.

Normally I don't like loincloths, but that long one looks ok ;) Just to avoid the skirtiness though I'd reccomend cutting it shorter aswell. I don't think up to the knees though, maybe just halfway up the shins. Also if you put a slit up the back (not as far as the front) too I think that would help.

(man that was bad grammer ??? :P )

I cuncur about the slit as well: perhaps halfway up the thighs, well-at least that's how mine is.

yeah, normally I don't care for the loincloths either, but due to some religious preferences, I need to keep it as much like a 'skirt' as possible.

Here's my concept art:



I may slit it up the back, though.
