    Mar 2, 2008, 1:06 PM - Costume HELP???????? #1

    I was hoping someone might be able to help me with a problem I have been having with my Jango costume.

    My problem:
    The vest is constantly being pulled out of the girth belt making the ab plate pop out away from my stomach and giving me a weird look. It also makes the whole area around the girth belt look strange because the vest is puffing out of the top of where it should be tucked nice and flat. I don't know if anyone else has this problem or if it is just my vest, which is the Loanstar vest and is fairly thick. Maybe the thickness of the vest is the problem but I was hoping some other people that may have had this problem could chime in and let me know how they resolved this issue.

    Thanks in advance for any input anyone can give me.

    hopefully it's long enough to being with. If it is, you could use a snap or some velcro to the underside of your girth to keep it in place. Mine pulls a little but too much, my vest was left extra long.

    I think the vest is long enough because it goes down to about halfway to the bottom of the girth belt. I am worried that with velcro it might not be strong enough to hold it in place. Does anyone have experience with using velcro and does it work for you?

    Try using heavy duty velcro; Much, Much stronger than standard velcro.

    If I ever have a problem with costume components slipping, I use velcro. Use sew-on for the vest, and industrial strength for the girth.
