Gett'syc'kote's soft and chewy tearable bits
« on: Nov 28, 2014, 10:44 PM »
Greetings Vode,

A bit of knowledge about my Mando first. He is an Early Crusader coming from a desert planet (kind of completely opposite of where I'm from in Canada) and I plan on applying for the Beastmaster Brigade after hitting OM on the EC. Seeing as he's a desert dweller, a shemagh feels appropriate, and I have one on order that looks like this:



I bought my flightsuit today, which I'm pretty excited about, but I am 100% sure that it is in need of some tailoring. I know it needs to lose pockets and such. This here is what it looks like on me:



I also bought a pair of boots today, and I need to buy another one of these faux furs from IKEA:



Input would be great. New at doing a costume more from scratch.

Looks good and like you said the flight suit could use a bit of tailoring.

I know you can't tell measurements from a pic, or if you can you're some kind of wizard, but how close to the body do the flightsuits have to be? Is about an inch off the body acceptable, or does it almost have to be skin tight?

It by no means has to be skin tight as long as it doesn’t look baggy when you are in armor.

So, got my gloves and shemagh in today. The gloves match my flight suit perfectly and fit great. Thing that popped into my head when I tried the shemagh on around my head was another of the same colour would be cool for a girth belt. Is that approvable, or would it be better to use something different? Going to be cloth heavy already with kamas (some type of fur), a loin cloth (some type of leather), wraps and other furs. I feel like it would fit, but would it be too much? Or are these questions a "get it together and let's see the result" type of thing?

I've seen a lot of cloth-heavy kits and they look fine, especially if you plan on joining, say . . . the beastmaster brigade.

But as always, concept drawings are good, pictures are best.

I think you're off to a great start.

Okay, I've been thinking about this for a little bit, but how difficult would it be to make this one piece into a two piece? I'm thinking ahead in case I have to hit the head in a hurry. Don't need to be smelling like I just took a bath in the trash compactor  :laugh:.

most people who want two piece 'flight suits' use a set of scrubs.  If you can't find a long sleeve scrub shirt, get a second pair of scrub pants and cut the legs out, then sew the legs into the arm holes of the shirt, it'll give you the double sleeved look that Jango has

My biggest issue with the scrubs route is that I can't find that many in khaki or a similar colour that are also cheap and from the same company with the same dye levels. I bought the flightsuit for $20, and kind of hesitant to spend another bunch of money after shipping to have what I want. This flightsuit that I already have is the perfect colour for the desert theme, and I don't have to worry about sleeve length for my Early Crusader build.

So, I bought some hessian a couple weeks back, and gave this a try. It's a 25 foot piece, and I like the looks of this wrap, but I'd like some feedback. Not that confident on the integrity of the material, but I like the looks of it. Here's a few angles:






1250 edit: Got into the soft parts that I have ready, and took a few pics to show how it's coming along:


To see the girth belt-ish thing a bit better.^

I think they look good; I would just be a bit concerned with them coming loose with extended wear. If you had a way to not worry about that happening though they should be fine. Also I know having to do wraps every troop can be a bit annoying.

Sorry for the double post if this is. Trying out the looks of the denim wraps on this loverly audience. I didn't like the hessian because it was too itchy and a bit more to handle than its current replacement. Eventually, I will tea or coffee dye these, just giving a test run here first.

And here are a couple pics:




Edit, edit.... EDIT!:

So, I got the second leg wrap started, and took some pics of the up to date soft parts all together. Just ignore the flightsuit, it's part of a second possible kit, and just fits me a lot better right now.

So, very small and pictureless update, but I just brought my flightsuit to a tailor shop today to get it altered. So in the mean time, more working on the other bits.

I really like the leg raps. It gives the kit a very weathered feel to it. Keep up the good work!
