NECRO POST TIME!
Check that last post date. 5 years. Life happens, and costumes get in the way.

This morning I ordered a Racal from Spat , its a direct copy of the original headset. I pulled out my old spats I made, and took a new photo. Thanks Photobucket for eating over 1000 photos I had posted to forums.

So heres the new photo. I re read our discussion topic when we were putting the costume together, and Ill be using the tan suit I have for my Yavin and Hoth costumes. I wont be dont the tan pants/ shirt with collar. Why? Because at my size, finding a tan pants with shirt collar combinatiuno, THAT MATCH and do not have built in phone pockets on the leg, is a bear. I wasted a lot of money buying stuff onine, you get it, and its a copletely different color from the other half. So, my approved coveralls.
Ill be weathering my ERT vest, my gloves are still out there and usable, and Ill fix up the gaiters by moving the clip, as discussed above.


I got a bunch of screen grabs from Starwarsscreencaps . com and you can see the crewman in the cockpit of the Falcon behind Nein Num and Lando. This is the coverall version.
goig back to our original discussion on this, there is clearly a version of Kraken with a collared shirt.

I moved my buckles and raised them, now it looks closer to what we see in the promo image. We know the buckles move around either by how they were sewn on, or by wear when the gaiter shifts. Either way, its closer to the centerlines.

It is good to see that you are continuing your Endor gunner project. It is not a very common costume similar to our Signals Intelligence Technician.

I always thought General Cracken's costume was a little strange. His gloves, gaiters, and vest are so very dirty compared to his new looking flight suit in that promo photo.

I agree, its wierd to see that much weathering on the vest. It was a topic on the earlier discussion to come up with the Standard, but it was done to appear on film. My gear always got stained, and i would wash it at the motor pool with a truck brush and soap, but eventually stains set in. I had older BDU's I would wear to the field, since I didnt want my "good" BDUs getting stained and tore up, so I can see the crewmen changing out things like coveralls which would get cleaned, vs field gear which pics up (wierd and wrong) stains.

I stained my gaiters today. I used potting soil and old soda. worked pretty nicely.

I found references that the gaiters are not sewn closed tubes. They have a Velcro closure in the back. They also seem to slip and slide as well are turn a lot in the different gunner scenes.
