Well, my hubby thought, why not weather it, then scotch gaurd it
to what Maulmaus said. Maulmaus, you contributed a lot too. Technically, we can credit DCB for everything -- he's the one that went all the way to Aussie the first time.
Trisha and her team "not knowing." I don't think that is the case, it's just that certain material just provides different looks, and it was for their movie shooting outcome, and not to serve our particular costuming needs but-theirs. They could've just picked up fabric at a "left over" warehouse for all we know, instead of having it custom done. Our guess is that they probably did about the same number of costumes as Jango's but we could be entirely wrong. I know that there were at least 5 gauntlets made. And, I know that there probably was a hero suit vs. a stunt suit. We've been picking crumbs of info since 2002. Different types of neoprene for different purposes, and, if it's thickness was different by a hair, then, I don't think it was headliner foam. It's just that Cris' shot was taken so close, it looked thick enough to be headliner foam. We're doing best guess still. So, I guess we should just raid Sansweet's closet again, this time with a pair of scissors
