My apologies...My computer experienced the blue screen of death, so I haven't posted in a while. I pretty much lost everything, notes, pictures, etc.

Making progress...Started on my chest piece, but want to post some pics before I get too far. Feedback on whether I got the plates sized right would be helpful. Hopefully I will be able to post some more pics soon!

Okay, so I keep trying to find a good base for the flight suit requirement of my Early Crusader kit...The more I look, the more I want to use sweat pants and a sweat shirt. BUT, someone say it, "No jeans, t-shirts, SWEAT SUITS, etc. used as flight suits or armor/flak vests."

How "in stone" is that? If I went to a fabric store and bought the same material a sweat shirt is made of and did my own sewing, would that be the same as a sweat suit and not meet the requirements? If I take sweat pants and a sweat shirt and heavily modify them, are they still a sweat suit? It's the elasticity in the material I am liking, and can't seam to find in an "authorized" form that won't cost a bundle...

HELP! can anyone clarify how strict/flexible the CRLs are?

I wanna say that the requirement is to make sure people dont automatically see you and being able to pick out that you're wearing tshirt, jeans, sweatsuit.  For my flight suit, we bought some other material from joannes that had more of a natural look to it, sewed a shirt and pants and then basically sewed the two together and gave it a zipper all up front.

Haven't posted in a while...still having computer issues. Have the gauntlets pretty much done. They have the same look and feel as the helmet. Moving on to the shoulder guards. Hopefully will be able to post some pics soon.

I've been really busy at work the last few weeks, and haven't really done much on my build. This weekend is supposed to be fantastic, so I'm hoping to move a few of my pieces forward. Thanks for all the comments! It's nice to have the support.

Happy Halloween everyone!

No problem, Niabi...I appreciate the feedback! I haven't gotten very much accomplished in the past few weeks, something I hope to rectify this weekend.

Didn't realize how long it's been since I last posted. Don't know where all my pics went?

In any case, I wasn't happy with the progress of my original EC helmet, so I started on a second EC helmet. It's about 75% completed, but I think it's already better than the first one. Here are some pic...Let me know what you think?

Hi all,

I have not posted in a long time, but I am still plugging away at my kit. It is definitely an education as a continue to learn what it takes to scratch-build a high quality costume. I haven't posted any pics...My computer crashed a few months back and I can only access my account from work.

I am struggling with what the difference is between early crusader era and the so-called "beastmaster" character. If anyone could shed some light on this?
