    Mar 10, 2012, 5:40 AM - I need a flight suit supplier #1

    Hey guys, I remember seeing a few people post about their favorite tailors, unfortunately I cant find them lol, I would prefer someone with a website I can order from, I am currently looking at Bobamaker and Evolution Props. Bobamakers stuff looks better, but is also on the expensive side of Fett stuff, so any suggetions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I had Loanstar do my flightsuit. Really great work. The only "problem" I had with mine is that the shin pockets were a bit high, but even that was an easy fix with a little resewing.

    Price isnt a limiting factor,Im a big boy now lol, I can afford my big boy toys, whay Im doing is shopping. Ive looked at bobamaker, and MOW( about to pick up the jetpack from him actually), Im still waiting on a few quotes also, Im just looking to make a smart buy, I dont want the cheapest suit if Im just going to have to do a ton of modifying, and I dont want to drop 400 bucks on a custom tailored suit if I can get one for two thats just as good. And thats why I asked here, everyone has litterally opened the store for me so I could do my shopping. Thank you all very much, and if anyone else has pics of their prefered suit please feel free to post, the more info I can get the better Ill be at making my choice.

    For what it's worth albeit late; I just got my flightsuit and flak jacket from Bobamaker today. I used his weathering/painting service and I am very pleased. The quality is superb. The stitching, finishing and attention to detail is top rate. That MOW stuff looks great but being in Europe it makes more sense for me to use BM to cut down on shipping and duties etc. From what I've received today I'd definitely recommend BM.

    Thanks, I was looking at bobamaker myself but ran into the same problem you had on the other end of the stick with the shipping costs, but thanks for your input!

    ... and don't forget that there are no such things as "minor details" when it comes to Fett!... quoted from a reply to me in a different thread!

    Ill be sure to post plenty of pics when my suit arrives, I also finally got a reply from ladysewforus, unfortunately her 6 month turn around is a bit of a turn off, but then if she's that busy her stuff must be good lol.

    crazy4bobafett just finished my soft parts.


    I'm not seeing the huge price difference between her and other makers. (in fact, they are nearly exact)
    What i am seeing is a huge difference in detail and accuracy.

    Christi adds all the bells and whistles. There are many small details that other makers tend to overlook.
    Not to mention, each suit is sewn to your dimensions, not just generic sizing or modified off-the-rack overalls that are modified.

    I think my BM suit took nearly five months or so. Not that I mind. The communication was great from Daz and I always knew this was going to be a long project. Actually I'm kind of glad of the lengthy turnaround times as it allows me to space out the cost, which is going to be high for a decent set up.

    Slave1pilot, looking good! bet you cant wait! and intwenonthor I completely understand, but if all goes to plan, I hope on attending Star Wars celebration VI in Orlando Fl, so waiting 6 months on my suit is cutting it a bit close, if you know what i mean, but by all means Im glad each and every one of you support your chosen tailors! I have contacted most of them (if not every one) myself, and I now how a shopping selection and better knowledge of where to go when I do need soft parts/ or sewing, so I thank you all! I too eagerly await my flightsuit and vest and hope its as good as advertised, and will post a full line up of pics.

    My soft parts from crazy4bobafett arrived today, here are some pics to show the awesomeness.






    i have them on the mannequin for placement, they still need weathering etc.

    If you are looking for a flightsuit, you owe it to yourselves to contact her.
