OK i'm helping the wife jump head first into Zam-land so we're coming here for advice, help, and info on everything.
I've spent the last month reading most of the threads in this list and I've got a good idea of whats going on but i don't see a lot of info of where everyone started from?
There's a good thread going on over on the boba section about how far people have come with their boba gear, So i'd like to see some comments hear as to where everyone started from, what you used first before all the fabric runs, and DCB's helmets were made etc.. I know people were Zammin' long before last september, way back at C-II even.
We want to get a good enough costume together and get out there asap, then upgrade as better parts and info come along until we have an ubber-Zam setup like the few of you have one day, so ...
So with that, what did everyone use for the bodysuit before the fabric run? did you dye something, did you just sew something from another fabric type? etc.. Did you make the vest and bib from vinyl to start? I think i can make the greeblies for the most part, but the helmet and cloth components seem the most challenging right now...
Anyone have any spare and old parts? etc..
