The coveralls look good to go as is, just take off the dickies logos and maybe the back pockets unless you plan on covering them with a kama. The zippers on your chest will be covered by armor. Gauntlets will cinch down the sleeves around you forearm and your gaiters will tighten down you lower leg slack.

Thanks for the tips vode. Logos already removed. I'll remove the back pockets. Do the pen pockets on the sleeves need removing? I'll leave alterations til I've got the gauntlets and leg bits. I'm deceivingly skinny.

Leave the pen pockets and get some tools to put in them. I say don't alter it since only upper arms and thighs will be loose.

Look at Boba's shin tools for inspiration or store some darts or something in them for a dart launcher.

First attempt at a faux leather pouch.



Will likely replace these with real leather of funds allow.

Are these boots suitable?

I'd be adding foot guard and possibly shin guard.

Sure.  I severely doubt your feet will be able to breathe in them, but they should work, yeah.

Ammo pouches arrived today. Austrian army StG58 ammo pouches. Fitted then to an old leather belt and added the holster.

Are elastic waist belts suitable as girth belts?

CRLs want any elastic to be concealed unless it is for knees and the Boba thong. You can use an elastic waist belt as a base and cover it for the girth belt. On a side note, could you PM me or just give details of how you turned a 3ring binder into a holster?

Tried sending a PM, not working for some reason, might be my phone.

Thanks for the info. I'll just get my friends wife to make me a girth belt. I was just looking at other options.

I did a tutorial on the holsters. Here's the thread. I saw the general idea elsewhere.

Any other questions regarding the holsters just ask.

Slowly naturally weathering my flak vest. Currently just wiling my arms and legs off when I finish work.

Decided to go down the WW2 gaiter / leggings route. Bought some repro ones and died them black. Had to order some black laces as they wouldn't take the dye.

Cape test fitting. Is this suitable coverage etc? Anything wrong approval / crl wise?





Dyed and painted. Just needs tears and hole damage and more weathering.
