*JACKET*
(Duck canvas)
I made the pattern myself.

The inside is lined and reinforced with interfacing, to hold the shape of the collar and Lapels.

I used a napkin square as a pattern for the pockets. The hems are pressed and attached to the jacket with heat n' bond.

The patches are upholstery leather. I used a stencil of the survey corps:

The patch was traced with waterproof pen (the vinyl was painted with gray first.)

*CARVAT*
(knit cotton)

*JEANS*
Already owned....they are Levi jeans...har har har.

*SKIRT*
(stretch knit)
Remade my skirt. It comes together on both sides with velcro. The skirt is sewn to the inside.

*DRESS SHIRT*
Bought at Goodwill.

*HARNESS*
(upholstery vinyl)

Started out by drawing 2 inch sized panels (using a yard stick helps a lot) I went back over after with a smaller ruler (1 inch in width) in my 2 inch sized panels. I drew my panels 2 inches so it would give me a lot of room for hemming. Take note that ironing along the hem guide lines (make sure you iron on the reverse side) will help in sewing the hems. I recommend using a leather footer (needle foot) for these.

The only portion I modified were the legs pieces. They are not functional and are pre-sewn together to look Y shaped at the knees. I hand sewed the thigh belts to my pants, so they wouldn't slip down constantly.

I got the belt buckles from Tandy Leather.

*WIG*
I plan to buy a new one.

*3D MANEUVER GEAR*

I followed this tutorial:

Some things were done differently, mostly being the materials.

The swords are being redone:

*I used L200 foam mats for the outer portions of the gear. The insides are reinforced with foam boards, which were sealed modge podge and spray paint sealer.

~ I took some creative liberties with the look of the gear as well. I thought it would be cool to make the metal look oxidized and rusty. I sprayed the gear with a coat of bronze spray paint. I went over the coat with wood glue and silver acrylic paint. The paint was sanded off in places.

*I used Coors Light cans for the tops of the gas cans. I took some creative liberties with the holders and used bolts to hold them down.
My dad had some extra pressure nozzles that I used for the cans, so I snatched those up. The PVC pipe was also lying around.

* The back gear is attached to a heavy duty cow hide belt, with nuts and bolts. I used cassette tape cases for the boxes and made the gripper things with L200 foam and textured with clay tools.

*for the metal accents, I used thin sheets of vinyl place mats. I used the same material for the fan blades as well.
