Seems like a good idea. The pouches should be fine. I would just dirty up the ten faire pouch though.

Are the zippers a problem, or is it OK for pouches?

From what I have seen and heard from the App Team, I would say that zippers, as well as velcro, need to be hidden on pouches. Wait for input from others.

I'll be taking some pre-app pics soon, so I'll find out then.

Some pre-pre-app pics are up on the Rancor boards, and it got me thinking...
Should I add some Jaig eyes to the bucket?

After some consideration, I've decided to hold off on adding things to the current buy'ce.  Makes it to busy.
I fixed a couple issues I had with the current vest, and will be getting a few pics on Halloween for your viewing pleasure.  ;D
Fixes: Re-Velcro'd the chest and ab plates, more securely Velcro'd the front of the vest. Trying to find some more pouches for the belt, and was wondering if I should have the clasp at the back or at the front.

You can place the belt clasp at the front of the back. Personally I like seeing the belt closure. :)

Halloween pics!

Got called a Stormtrooper a couple times, Bob-A the Hutt (WTF??), a Transformer, and Boba Fett.

I got Joba Fett. Eh, close enough. Got a surprising amount of "Oh look a mandalorian" though. That's always nice.

Hope to have some pics up soon, just picked up an ammo satchel to add to my belts. Feel ready to apply.
Also, adding a canteen, figured it would actually be useful. Went through about 6 bottles of water at Cincy, and a bunch more on Halloween.

Take some good quality pictures outside (provides better lighting) and post those here before sending them in. We'll be able to examine everything before it goes to the App team.  8)

Here we go, Be gentle... :rolleyes: :P




And "Q-ing it" for my blasters!


What I see:
Need to darken and damage the cape, make it show that I actually DO have a backplate.
Plates still feel wonky to me, maybe the new vest I might be asking Kraam to make might solve that.
Critique time!
Lemme have it.
