    Knee Armor: Attaching it to costume

    Howdy,

    Can you all post some pics regarding how you got your knee armor to stay on. I have seen some images where people have used nylon straps. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks

    Duh!

    The elastic strapes on the knees are the correct method attaching to either side of the knee.
    You could also use velcro attached to the knee area on the jumpsuit and the back of the knee armor, this will help keep the knees from waggiling down to your feet as you walk.

    Any fabric store (like JoAnn's) or craft store (like Michael's) should have them. It is just plain white 1" wide elastic. You can either hot glue it to your armor or use snaps. I prefer a velcro closure on mine (easier to adjust IMO), but some guys you the tiny snaps on theirs.
