    Using some of the images from the Gallery is a bit deceiving, as most of the Pre-Pro #1 and Pre-Pro #3 colors have a strange (mostly blue) hue on them. Here is an example:

    Using these images as a guide, especially that the Pre-Pro #2 suit had the Pre-Pro #1 abdominal plate, while the Promo suit has the Pre-Pro #1 left chest plate:

    You can clearly see that in the color corrected image the flight suit changed its color from light blue to a light gray-blue.

    The flight suit material has a close color to the color corrected image, so you are on the right track with your build.

    I think the color could easily be achieved with the correct mixture of a few ounces of RIT evening blue dye and possibly a few tablespoons of india ink in a small dye bath, similar to the way an esb suit would be dyed from white. If youre using a bull denim or canvas as it appears to be, the colors shouldnt absorb that much into it, "blueing" it up a little if need be.

ID:	83842Incredible! I was also shown I should find a cotton twill cloth. This sample I has is duck canv. I'll head up North and try and locate the C. Twill in this color. I'll also look into those INKs. I won a $150 card to Joann's from this weekend Cosplay contest and since this armor has already taken all my $$ I think the makers telling me it's soft parts time. Again thank you for your help! I'll post a update sample soon.

ID:	83960Ok so I just got back and I found a cotton twill white and inks ( grey, blue ) tonight I will try and boil up a color and post some samples.

    I got 6 yards to be sure :P

    Next I will search for Vest matirial and Cape.

    Just gotta say again, thank you guys for helping me to make this right and correct. Growing up with a restoration shop owner as a father I have a burning desire to hold to the original design as much as I can.
