    dying flightsuit

    hey everyone. I'm a very happy person today because i got my flight suit in the mail today. Its a Lady Sewforus and its amazing!! Couldn't be happier. Anyway I'm doing a esb fett and I would like to know what dye to use. If you can leave me the name of the dye and what not, that would be sweet. Once I finish attaching my chest armor I will put pics up everything i have done.
    Thanks everyone.

    I went with the Rit Midnight Blue & Pearl Gray. the Royal blue is too dark and if your not carefull, it will come out Purple and you'll struggle to get it right once that happens. post pics when you dyed it bro.

    I just checked out rit's website. Should i go with a liquid dye or the powder? which one have you guys used? Should I get fabric treatment?

    Be sure to try to keep your jumpsuit a lighter blue colour as seen here. Many ESB Fetts make theirs way too dark.

    I cannot find Rit Midnight Blue... I have found "evening Blue". I picked it up because it seemed like darker than a light blue and not dark at all like Royal Blue.

    I also have a LSFU suit and am going to do the same thing. Please let me know what you're gonna do!

    thanks!
