    Jan 25, 2005, 12:29 AM - My new ESB jumpsuit - teaser #1

    Over the last week or so, I've been working on my new jumpsuit. Here it is so far!

    I made it using two white Red Kap jumpsuits, using pieces of the second one to make the sleeves and pockets. It was modified it to fit me properly, and I added the ankle straps I so sorely needed. There is an elastic in the right sleeve with a key-ring on it so I can hook my hose on. Works beautifully.

    You may not be able to tell in the photos (excuse the crappy camera) but it's dyed Rit Royal Blue and Pearl Grey, but it isn't quite coloured enough for my tastes. Oh well, try it again tomorrow! I'll take more photos since these didn't turn out.
    Let me know what you think.

    Who did your sewing? The pockets and seams look very nice. Looks like a wife/girlfriend/mother helped with the sewing...very cool! What was total cost if I may ask?

    BTW...I must say, the shoes are what make it so special too. JK! Did anyone see that clonetrooper pic of the guy in front of the X-wing about 6 months ago? That guy spent a year making a one-off fiberglass clone suit that he could barely walk in, and then wore Reeboks...sweet!

    Those are some nice shoes!


    You did an awsome job sewing that all by yourself. Most impressive work on the detailing.

    Who did your sewing? The pockets and seams look very nice. Looks like a wife/girlfriend/mother helped with the sewing...very cool! What was total cost if I may ask?
    Sad thing is he has to sew for his girlfriend.

    All the sewing was done by me. No need for any female assitance, real men know know to sew
    Total cost aside from dye, $24 total for two jumpsuits.

    I got them from a small second-hand store that sells used work clothes like jumpsuits, jackets, labcoats, etc.

    Can you go back to the store and buy me 2 sized 46! Are there more? WHITE? LMK.

    I guess I am a girly-man that can't sew since all the bad-A's on this forum can sew!

    Really nice for the price! Are you doing the ESB version or the ROTJ version? Looks like the ROTJ color so far...unless it's the camera or the flash....something....

    But so far...OUTSTANDING!!! Are those shoes "screen accurate"?
