    Actually for cheap sintra armor, e-bay is the perfect place to look.

    actually i got half from a recommended seller on ebay, and the codpiece and thighs from someone on merc costuming boards.

    while that is all fine and dandy , the only other thing im confused on finding is a vest to go under the armor. im not doing a boba, so tan wont work for me (which is unfortunate as i found a great seller who makes tan). turns out mid grey or black would be best. does anyone make custom vests?

    You could use some dye to change the color of the tan vest.

    If all else fails, you could pick up the fabric you want (optional), and then check with local seamstresses in your area on how much it would be to sew you a vest. Check in your phone book for them, and also if you have them, with local fabric stores. There's some sort of secret underground sewing organization at evry sewing place that knows about awsome seamstresses.
