    To answer in order....

    1. Pretty much anything, cotton, polyester, wool, some are even made from insulated materials, but you don't want that or you'll die. :P

    2. An O.K. suit in a readily available color runs about $10-$15, I suggest a local goodwill or Salvation Army. Also, when googling, use "coveralls" and "jumpsuit" as keywords too, many listings will come up.

    3. More than to buy one, unless you are REALLY desperate for the right color, and you have the fabric picked out, don't do it.

    4. Unless you are a seamstress, and do this for a living, I wouldn't.

    If this helped let me know, if you need more help, contact me or Ladysewforus, or darthcarcinus, both are great fabric workers.

    For a screen acurate fett suit, from a good seamstress your looking at 100-200 bucks. Just thought id throw that out since it wasnt mentioned.

    I would suggest buying a white one, and dying it. As most the other colors especially grey, are too dark.

    Aug 18, 2009, 7:03 PM - Spats are in the way...how do you - #6

    This fits the thread topic, so I'm posting this here because I can't seem to find my answer searching through pics, etc.

    Are the flightsuit pant legs folded over on themselves and then tucked into the boots?? I can't tell how they are worn for screen accurate look because all photos have the spats covering the top of the boot where the flightsuit leg and boot meet.

    Thanks!
