Acceptable undersuit
« on: Apr 05, 2013, 07:23 PM »
Iv been looking around and im on a budget and cant really afford a flight suit but can get a cheap boiler suit. So my question is . Is it acceptable to use a boiler suit?

by quick google search it appears a boilersuit is the same thing as coveralls? If so yes. that is what many people use.

Not ALL pockets need removing, I have pockets on my sleeves, but they are an integral part of my suit design. Back pockets need to go (unless covered by a butt plate or kama, and waist pockets are to "earthy" in design to pass, any pockets on your chest will be covered by your vest so ignore those.

Again, if they can be tied into the overall function of the suit, they are fine, remember, Boba has pockets on his lower legs that ordinarily would look silly, but the way they are made part of the function of the suit makes them work.

Also, make sure the suit isn't really baggy on you. If it's big, take it in. It makes for a much sharper looking costume when you're all finished. ;)

If you guys know people who work at military air stations they tend to have used flight suits for cheap. I got mine for 5 bucks. The problem is that it might be tricky to find the correct size.

I think the main thing is to make shure people don't look at your costume and say "hey look I wear that same boiler suit every day at work!"
