Hey guys I'm looking to dye my MOW soft parts for an ROTJ suit: Flight Suit, Ankle Spats, Flak Vest, and Collar. What are the best RIT dye colors to get the look?

Here is what I used for the flight suit recipe:

Flight Suit - Correct color for ROTJ Boba flight suit.

I will have to go through my notes for the belt pouches & spats.

For the flak vest all I did was mist it with spray paints. I used flat black & flat brown. Plus some wet on wet weathering.

Thanks so much I will take all the help I can get :D, I have your dyeing process written down(and I was going to give it a try tomorrow). Is your flight suit MOW or something else? And lastly, do you have any last minute pointers?

My suit is a MOW. As for pointers. Just be careful, dyeing my flight suit was one of the most nerve racking things I did on my build. But I was happy with my results. I did multiple test on like fabric as the suit to make sure I could duplicate the results & was very happy with the results. I am going on 5 years & I have done 60 events & it has held up well.

The formulas you used to dye, i think I saw somewhere that you had them scaled down for test fabrics. You wouldn't happen to have remembered those would you?

And do you recommend washing the garments before dyeing them?
