Since reading about this I have decided this will be a new lightweight go-to, and hopefully will inspire others in my Base to join RAID.

Just bought the Sherrif Brown Tru Specs, and I found a pair of Chelseas I truly hope will work. I have wide landing gear!

Found a shirt pattern that will work, and will likely make the shirt from scratch so it has long enough sleeves to come to the wrist as well as make the yoke in back.

I may snag the air fittings from the hardware store on the way home tomorrow.

My webbing for my PLCE belt came in and I bought a bunch of air line fittings so I can start work on that

For your line fittings, did you get two different sizes that you'll cut and fit together, or did you buy a fitting with different sized ends?

Sam i bought two different sizes that were double ended so ill cut those in half and join then with epoxy and a BBQ skewer. Since the webbing came in last night i may spend some quality time with my.machine tonight making up the PLCE belt.

It is good to see that more people are interested in this costume. I was kind of feeling lonely as one of a kind. :-) It looks like you got a very good start, David.

I know ALLLLL About being the only. Funny thing is, once you start wearing the hell oiut of it, people will start showing interest. At first I was the only local TI, now I have 27 Pilots in my Garrison Flight. Now there is interest in Hoth here, even though its blistering hot in deep south Louisiana still.
this is inexpensive and on the "easy" starter side of the spectum. My boots are here, my pants are about 250 miles away on a truck somewhere, and my belt in next to the sewing machine, ready for me to make it.

If your base mates start making their hoth troopers now they will be finished by winter.

Well, I hope there will be many more Signal Intelligence Technicians in the near future. I wore it for the first time at an event yesterday. It was very comfortable and will be an excellent costume for events during the hot summer months next year.

I'm going to use the Signal Intelligence Technician as a base for my Scarif Marine and use that for the cold weather events. I still have to make the jacket, vest, and cap. My husband has an unapproved hoth hanger trooper that he uses at those types of events.

I wear my hangar trooper on hot days just to prove a point. Im actually more comfortable in it, than say my Colonial Marine.

Pants came in last night. I got pretty busy last night but I hope to get the pants modified with new belt soops tonight to fit the PLCE belt.

I did not make new belt loops for my pants. The original loops are long enough to be re-used. I just took them off and ironed them. Then put them back on and made sure that straight part was long enough so that the PLCE belt fit trough.

This weekend The Maker picked up my tan shirt material and got all my measurements. I also got a new foot for my machine to sew the loops on my PLCE after my first attempt failed spectacularly. My Chelseas FIT!!!
Soooooo......awesome!

RIGHT ! SO!
here we are one year later. My live has altered significantly since the last post, and many priorities changed. now that I have a job again I can get back to work. I still do not have the shirt in hand but I have spoken with my shirt maker to determine where she is in the construction. Im having it made from scratch to the cuffs are correct.

Im working on the pants today, and Ill lay out a template for the anklet later.

Good to see you back David!

I am almost done with this costume (I have said that for 7 months now) too. The only thing I need is the anklet and the person who was going to make one for me by Celebration has completely backed out. I will be keenly interested to see what you come up with.
