    If one were to make a vest with this material, and then COMBINE it with the TK409 Neckseal? Would the neckseal not match and look completely out of place?
    I can't answer that. My neckseal is made out of this material (the flipside of it), so texture-wise they are slightly different.

    You've already stated this, and you can see in the posts above that once the vest is weathered properly, it's not too shiny at all. It's obvious you don't like the material, or agree with its level of accuracy, but please don't post negative comments just to deter others from ordering.

    Regarding the accuracy of my vest patterns...

    I've been getting PMs asking 'how accurate is your pattern'?

    I designed these patterns with a couple changes from the movie, since the majority of us actually wear the costume, as opposed to simply displaying it on a mannequin. Here are the differences, and the reasons, that I've made a few changes.

    1. "Only three sizes?" Yes, I only produce three pattern sizes. I do not offer custom fits, basically because I would have to craft a separate pattern for each individual. And I'm not a professional pattern-maker. Also, the patterns are sized to be a little big. Remember, this has to be worn over your jumpsuit, harness and chest display.

    2. "The armholes seem too big." Yes, I made this modification so that the wearer would have more range of motion when trooping. Due to the way the sleeve is constructed, making the armhole a little bigger was the most feasible way to add the feature, without compromising the overall look of the vest. I'm not sure if Mr. Bulloch ever complained about this on the original vest, but notice that later in 2002, Jango's vest pattern was modified so that the sleeves are placed higher around the armhole. The sleeve design was also changed so that the sleeves go 'out' instead of 'down'. I would bet the Jango costume is alot more comfy than Boba's.

    3. "Was there a cutout on the original vest?" No, there was not. I made this modification so that the wearer had the option of using the cutout as a third connection point for his jet pack. Regardless, the cutout is somewhat hidden beneath the pack when worn.

    4. "The original vest had thinner Velcro." Yes, it did, but it was only designed to fit one person (or his stunt double). These patterns are designed so that a 'Large' could fit a wider range of body types, simply by positioning the Velcro differently. This prevented me from having to develop more than three patterns.

    And finally...

    5. "Do you make neckseals?" No. Because they're a pain in the neck. Seriously. See TK409 for his neckseals, they're perfect!

    I hope this answers alot of questions concerning the vest production. PM me if I missed anything.

    Question for batninja:

    If we have the material shipped to you, then what is the cost that we pay you to sew it, since we already paid BF for the material?

    From the man:
    The cut-off is in two and half weeks (April 30th). I am not limited as to how much I can buy, just how much I can pay for.

    So - get in the money before the 30th of April and you should be good!

    If someone only has enough $$ for the material, JUST buy the material and have Batninja sew it LATER. This is something you guys don't want to miss. Pony up or you'll be sorry.
