    Nov 28, 2005, 5:50 PM - Attaching Hoses #1

    Hey Guys,

    I was just wondering how you all attach your hoses to your costume? I am just trying to figure it all out.

    Any advice?

    That's about it Pete... mine is very similar. I have a hook attached to the hose which grabs onto an elastic strap that I sewed into the sleeve.

    I used a connector like in post 19 of R Boba topic. The only difference is that I took a piece of webbing and sewed it to the ends of the three hoses. Then I sewed the female connector to the inside of my sleeve with some elastic. That way, when I bend my arm the elastic stretches and doesn't pull on my sleeve.
