After everything ordered, and on its way, I thought I would keep a log of my build... Since all the armor is being made now I figured I would start with the fabric pieces, today j made the cape, and am getting my flight suit tailored (it was a little big , and I can't wait for it to be done, it's the MoW two piece, and I'm going to hand dye it. ) here is pictures of the cape, I did yesterday and I will be working on the ammo belt today pictures of that to come!
The cape is obviously the easiest part of the build, for mine I just got a canvas fabric on sale, I gentley spray painted a terra cotta color, and then tea stained it using some cheap earl grey that I got for Christmas like 7 years ago (I like my teas fancy) after a cycle through the dryer I frayed the bottom and attached it to the back of my motorcycle and cryised around for a bit, to let it get more frayed. Then I washedbit again and pressed it to get rid of some of the wrinkle. It also softened the fabric.
