    Jumpsuit Options ?

    I am slowly making my own Boba Fett and I was wondering what options others here have used for their Jumpsuits...

    I found a few places online that sell jumpsuits and they look nice, and with a bit of modification may do the job, what do you think?

    (I know the color isn't dead-on but that can be fixed with the correct Dye Color.)

    These Flightsuits look good too, at $50.00 each they are a little pricey but could be worse!

    Their Khaki color looks close (Not exact):

    This one also looks promising at $31.26:

    Only problem is you need 100% cotton or its not gonna dye right.

    You can get white and sew it up using the shirt for the pouches/shin tools/long under sleeve, and then dye it all.

    Huh. Using the shirt for the extra material is a great idea! Has anyone done this??? it looks like the fabrics might be slightly different. I wonder if this would be noticeable?

    Pardon my ignorance, but is twill 100% cotton? Will it take dye?

    Ya I got both and they where the same material but I couldnt sew so it looked bad, and I gave up. The twill is 100% cotton yes.

    I heard you can get the steel blue colored jumpsuits from the jcpenny website, the steel blue color is good for the pre production fett.

    I bought the gray dickies jumpsuit, I found some shorts that matched in colour and I added on the extra parts.

    Re: Jumpsuit Options ?

    i have one of those jumpsuits from the first pic. Got it at a Sherper's by me which is military surplus.

    if someone wants it I'd let it go for as low as $25 shipped in the US.

    It was tried on once, and i believe it's a size large. Which would fit someone between 5'9"-6'2" nicely. I've outgrown it since I got it and never got a chance to start altering it. It was never worn outside. PM if anyone is interested

    Since I'm going to be doing a Mandalorian variant, I don't have to stick to the Boba/Jango grey/blue coveralls. So I've found a set of SWAT tactical coveralls for $58 at a site that I'll post below so you can check it out. My armor is going to be all black so the black coveralls will be perfect. I really only picked this set because they were black and cheaper than buying a Boba flightsuit. So if anyone comes across a nice black flightsuit/coveralls cheaper than $58 I'd appreciate someone tipping me off-PM me and fill me in. Thanks!

    I purchased my first flightsuit from here.

    I had to take in the legs almost two inches though. They were really baggy.
