Hmmm....what have we here?
Pics to come. I have everything now. Also going to need a good guide on how to dye your flightsuit
Is that Bobamaker? Nice vest!!
That is Bobamaker. Awesome stuff! I have most everything attached now, but my mirror is really small. I'll have better pics uploaded in a day or two
Awesome, can't wait to see!
as far as the flight suit, I used the do a little till you like it method. I just added some purple a little at a time. Then I used a light bleach solution to weather it.
Sorry to steal Dynamic's photography style, but here is what I have so far. I have all my pieces and should have final pics up soon.
Alright. So it took me roughly 1 hour to get everything on for the first time--except back armor and jetpack. Obvious it would be quicker and less stressful to have a helper putting on your armor.
Doing a Jango as opposed to a Jawa is definitely a commitment. So many minor things to adjust....
It takes me about 20 minutes to suit up now and I have to have help. I can not dress my self totally.
yeah, I can't totally dress independently, but it has taken me less and less time.
Soon you'll be down to half an hour or less like us Jango's who have been suiting a while now
i love the slight weathering on your vest.
Thanks all. Bobamaker did a great job on the vest. I love it.
Everything is good so far. Just have to make minor adjustments here and there.
Having some trouble with the zipper creeping up. Do you guys just velcro your vest to your harness/flightsuit or something (to hide the zipper)?
Here a pic of what I'm talking about:
Maybe I didn't do something right because it was around 1am when I finally finished and I was tired. Any suggestions? (sorry for the trippy picture)
You have the chest piece and range finder on the wrong side.
In my jumpsuit, I have one of those sewn in snaps. So it doesnt show cuz its underneath.

Here's my set up.
Wow, nice! I'll have to play around with it to get it to work correctly. Right now, still trying to get the right color on the flightsuit
Seeker has some ring around the collar.

So I suited up 100% today with the help of my gf. After looking at the pictures, I must say it looks differently than what I had in my mind. I see things I need to tweak (e.g. change the color of the flight suit). I suppose I can't be that hard on myself seeing as this was the first time for me to put it on. I did forget to snap the jetpack harness to the cod piece, which might account for the large gap between the girth and ab armor. Still don't really know what I'm going to do about the collar area.
Gimme feeback. What needs to change? Any advice would be appreciated.
I'm certainly no expert, the one thing to me that stands out (aside from what you mentioned already) is the thighs may need to be placed more to the center. To me, and it's only my opinion, is that they are too far off to the side.
Looks awesome, though! I can't wait to do the same thing!
I love it! I know it's not a big thing but, in my opinion, the jumpsuit could be faded out a little more. Maybe if you weather it with grey dye or something to tone it down but totally up to you man. As it stands, it's a really great get up!
I definitely agree on both counts
I will fix the thighs and fade the jumpsuit more.
Any more fixes?
