I've just about given up on this costume. Building and painting it went extremely well and I had barely any issues. I solved my last problem of the armor not looking right (my flak vest was a normal t-shirt) by making something thicker and quilted. The armor itself fits fine now but I feel that the armor is just way too small overall. I'm not pleased with it at all and thats the only thing that i feel could be the problem.
So could someone break out a tape measure and give me some overall dimensions of their armor?
I was really hoping to get this all buttoned up for next saturday for a party
