    Budget Flightsuit Options?

    My low budget Fett needs options. While I'd love to sink money into some of the excellent craftsmanship I've seen here, I just simply can't afford it. I've been trying to convince myself to raise my price limit to go for empireprops' suit on eBay. I've heard some good things about it and also some not so good things, but for me I'd prefer affordability rather than accuracy. At least for my first build.

    So what are my options in terms of jump or flight suits I could buy? I've trawled the Bay for flightsuits but nothing comes close to the colour I need for a ROTJ set up. Can anyone show me links for anything under $100 that might suit my needs with a little modification (my sewing skills are abysmal so modifying the fit would be out but I'm sure with some time and effort I could stitch on pockets, do a dye job, etc)?

    My advice...save up another $50 and get Arkady to do one for you.

    The amount of time, frustration, and money spent modifying the suit will go over the $50 difference. Plus, it's the right colour

    Carole is great to work with, and will make a suit tailored to your fit.

    Go with quality why upgrade later, try Arkady nothing but good reviews on here, you might also want to try cucblack I hear he makes a pretty good bargain suit also.

    I agree!..Arkady all the way! She is awesome and her prices are excellent! I've had my jumpsuit made by her in 2009 and its still going strong!
