I decided to start a costume about two months back, and I finally had the opportunity to try it on for the first time. I purchased a majority of the costume from a person who no longer wanted his costume. I was really satisfied with most of it, but not all of it. I've already replaced the blasters I got with BR blasters, and replaced the gauntlets which were 's gauntlets painted with a scheme. Thanks to Cruzer for selling me his set of MOW gauntlets.
Again, I wore the costume for the first time today, but boy did things go south. Here's a shot of me:
My biggest problem with costumes is that I have 26" thighs and 18" calves. I cropped the above photo because within the first few minutes of having it on, I heard the sound of Rice Krispies in milk ... SNAP CRACKLE POP! Except it was my leg armor. Bets snapping, armor breaking, holster belts popping off, knee armor flaring up. (That's why I cropped the lower portion of the pic.) On top of that, the jet pack actually pulled my harness system through and is the reason it looks like my vest and chest armor are choking me. Oh well, it's a start.
I've got a few new upgrades coming within the next few days:
Thanks to SEEKER, I've got a new belt (I can't stand the one I have now) coming along with a new helmet.
Thanks to Sky, I've got a new vest coming.
But anyway, I welcome any help here with this ... any suggestions y'all may have. But please be gentle ... I know it may be sub-standard TDH quality, but I'm workin' on it ... it's work in progress.
