Well, some progress:


Got my girth belt made, thinking of either dying it brown or leaving it white.
Also, got a gloss coat on my bes'bev, and a leather belt loop for it.

Was thinking of dying it the same as my vest, a denim blue. Think brand new jeans... ;D

Maybe dye it a similar orange to what's on your armor?

OK... Having some issues with the "Easy vest tut".  Mainly that I can't cut a straight line in the t-shirt template to save myself. ???

Also, what materials would be acceptable for a kama?  I got some burlap to line the back of the girth with, but it didn't work out.  So I have a little over 2 yards of material, and nothing to do with it. Kicking around a cape, an Eastwood-style cloak, kama... Help... ??? :P

Burlap probably isn't the best choice; after all, kamas are designed to protect from shrapnel and fire blasts and the like, and burlap doesn't really have the look of a material that would offer that kind of protection.

Generally kamas are made from leather or pleather. There may be a way to incorporate burlap though, assuming it fits with the whole aesthetic of your kit. Hope this helps!

Going for the aesthetic, might have to mock it up in the different ways I'm thinking of.  Pics to come, I guess...:P

GAAAAAAH!! How could I be so stupid...  ??? :rolleyes:

With the focus on my soft parts,  I've completely forgotten my Cod and Knees. :facepalm:
Have to get some e6000 to attach a belt to the cod plate, and some elastic to the knees.  Will be covering them with some fabric that matches the flightsuit.  Was wondering, would a single strap be enough, or should I use two?

Now for an unofficial poll:
Which is better?
A:
OR
B:

Had to take a pic of my print from MandoMaker 3.0, since it won't let me screencap it.

I have to go with option B. I'm not much on for kamas. As well as the second one just looking outright better in my opinion :D

Forgot to add in color choices for the parts:
Either a "denim blue" like the vest, or navy blue like the flightsuit.

That settles it.  Cape it is.  Between you guys, and my Rancor vode, B is the most popular.

Thanks! :D

Gaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!!  >:( ??? :-\ :-[

Got majorly sidetracked, seriously need to take a week away from work to get moving forward on this build. Found a Halloween short sword, can use it for a placeholder weapon, untill I get a better.

REALLY need some help with this vest, and am glad I shave my head, or I'd be pulling my hair out, trying to get my cod and knees attached.
