PM sent.. and one "open" question...
Will you make the slots for the elastic STRAPS for the knee and shin pieces ???
That would be interesting... cause it could be done correctly from origin .
thanks for the question about the knee and shin holes.
I thought about that also and came to the following problem.
Every one has a different leg and knee size and it would be absolute terrible if you got that super accurate jumpsuit and your knee and shin holes are to high or to low.
If all of you would life in my neighborhood i would make a big barbecue with you and would make the measurements for the knee holes and the shin holes by myself. NP.
For those that want to come over to me, your welcome
Ive got cold beer, hot coffee or Gluehwein
With other words,
i think the safest way is if you put on your jumpsuit, measure that point where you need the knee and shin slots/holes and let a local tailor do the little part. They shouldn't take more than 15 bucks for it.
Back to the point if all of you would live in my neighborhood.
What a vision, a Neighborhood full of Star Wars maniacs, me includet
Heheh.. I get it, just was out of curiosity... No problem on that, you are right I will do it with no problem.
Put me on the list then .
I'm thinking i might be able to ask for this as a Christmas gift from my wife What would shipping be to US?
And when would you need payment? sorry of i have over looked it.
Also do you have any idea of maybe how long it will take to do these?
Also can i send you my own fabric?
Please mark me as number 8 on the interest list. Also pm sent!
About the material:
I received a lot of questions about the material i use and if customers can send their own material to me so i could make a flight suit out of it.
Before i answer this, here are two other pictures of my material.
The first picture is one that i made on the original Jango flight suit in Paris this year. The sample fabric that i hold in hand is the material i have used on the flight suit i made.
The second photo is a photo montage, i took off some color of the sample fabric and also lighted it up a bit like being washed a couple of times.
The fabric i used is a 100% cotton that will get more light and brushed as
often you wash it.
I´m gonna make an extreme washing day tomorrow by washing my flight suit 6 - 10 times Will post pics also.
I will receive some samples from cruzer , thx again , of his fabric that was used on his flight suit in the mail soon and will post pics then.
So the next days we will see more results.
If you want your own fabric on the flight suit, no problem!!!
You can send me your fabric and i will make the flight suit out of it.
Oh man, I knew I was forgetting to do something!! I even looked to see if I still had some spare pieces, and I do.
I'll send that out tomorrow, express airmail...unless it's way too expensive! But it looks like that fabric you have looks pretty good. Is it a little on the purple side or is it dark blue? A teaspoon of some bleach in the wash and I'd probably be happy, but I've always liked the faded blue color instead of the purplish color.
Sorry bro, life and two kids just gets busy as heck most of the time...and not less of the time around here.
I'll send that fabric out tomorrow,
I've been watching this with interest. I am curious though. Could you take a picture in the daylight of the suit and a close shot of the fabric? I think the lighting in your room is throwing me off cause the suit looks pretty bright to me .. but like I said I am sure it's just the lighting.
I have 3 daughters,8 month old,2 yearold and a 9 yearold. Some days i don't even know who i am???? LOL!
Anyways back to the topic:-) D
Lonestar did you get to do the multiple washings on the suit,did it lighten up the color?
By the way!
As most of you already know, i have changed my name from Fett2210 to Loanstar.
After more than 4 years as a member of this board i found it was time to give my name more character.
I started with Fett2210 like, o.k. what kind of board is that here, just another of these hundred Star Wars boards?
So i wasn't very creative by choosing a name.
But this board was never like something else, it was from the beginning absolutely different and had so much creative and enthusiasm members.
So after a long time, i did was had long to be done.
I changed my name.
This name Loanstar means a long history for me, its also my Character in the SWG game.
so don't get confused!
Loanstar is born.
calculate the jump to hyperspace and back to work now!

Looks good, PM sent.
About the color of jango Jumpsuit, the right color is a Grey/blue-purple , very similar of the old Germany Officer uniform used during the WWII.
To see, touch ( without the glass ), and take mold and measured of the Jango costume, is better... if you have all the necessary to work
I think he said it:
To me this looks to be a color match to the film suit. I mean between your pic and mine, it shows the different color variations in different lighting like Jango film costume.
It does not seem to my the color from the Jango FSuit, probably seemed, but you are not equal, I do not believe that they are the colors of WW2
So do think a little more on the purple side?
Yes, this is the problem of the color from the WW2.
The light is very important, in the images... I know ! .. the reflex of the glass too... Usually the glass have a component of green/blue.... Also the extra clear, is not perfect neutral.
I have more pictures of Jango suit. But the color is different in many photos.
On the real I had compared some color and fabric.... grey, blue and more !
If you want my modest help, the color of the Germany Officer Uniform is a very good reference. You can use the RAL5014 ( taubenblau ) but more dark ( 40-50 % about ) as ulterior reference.
In the follow images you can note the different photos with and witout flash, and several lights.
Thats what i thought Stefano. The lighting does explain the blue to purple role in differents pics. My house witn its vinyl siding believe it or not, does the same thing. It looks blue certain times of the day and purple and even gray.
And the color of the german suit looks more like Cruzers found fabric. But i have taken pics of it in different lighting and it does look purple-ish.
sry that it took so long since my last update but i'm still working on the right fabric.
I received Cruzers fabric samples some days ago, thank you so much again Cruzer :thumbup , and have to find a new supplier for it here in Europe or India.
I'm in contact with a lot of fabric suppliers and will have some positive results soon.
I'm also finished my Vest prototype and will post pics the next days
I'm also planing another short Trip to Lisbon / Portugal to the Star Wars Exhibition that moved from Paris to Lisbon to get some new and up to date reverence pics about the fabric and colors .
So stay tuned, don't jump off that thread and be sure that you will get a Top Quality flight suit with the super accurate fabric soon.
Now i wish you a happy 3 Advent Sunday
