    Soft Parts technical issue = belt

    Becky got a thick leather belt and looped the skirts leather thongs over that. She wear that as a skirt belt combo then the Zam umberbund goes over the leather belt :) Sew or glue a strip of thick leather behind the Zam cumberbund to give it some strengh for when you hang the holster etc off...

    Seattle Zam Found Fatigue Age for parts of costume

    Me and Becky or should I say, Becky and I plan to revamp her Zam soon :) Tough costume to stay in shape for 100% of the time so we'll try to make it more fogiving and more comfortable to wear. I've seen some of her deep velcro cuts after a days trooping and it doesn't look fun. I may even...

    Yeah I know you guys paint them brown, I'm saying brown versions do exist....if you can find them :)

    These are the ones me and Becky had to do hers yes, but they should be brown right? They must be ankle boots and not go any higher as they wouldn't fit inside the shin gauntlet properly
