Having trouble with the vest material. Can not find the right color. The Khaki Trigger material suggested is fine if you used a grey jump suit but I am using a tan one. It should have more "yellow" in it. Trying to get a close match.

you could try a faint dye wash. This worked for me when I was adding to my Endor Rebel Trooper soft cap. The antique cloth was a little more yellow than my khaki fabric, but close. So I dyed it, using a big storage bin of water and about 1/4 bottle of yellow RIT dye instead of a whole bottle. Follow the directions on the bottle (using salt, putting in wet fabric, stirring, etc.) and you can also pull it earlier than the 30-60 minutes. It is hard to see the color at all when wet, so you will have to wash out the dye thoroughly and dry it before you can accurately see it. If you are worried about over doing it, do 1/6 bottle of dye, for 20 minutes, and hand wash all the dye out (until the water runs clear), and dry it. If it needs more, you can do it again.

I received a swatch from the Wampawear tan suit and took a photo compairing it with the Moncal ( Far Away Creations ) suit. This should work out well for Hanger Trooper. It will be easier to find a good color material for the vest.

I did get a Wampa suit , It just needs a bunch of mods since I had to order one that was larger so it would not be too small. Some areas or too baggy. The size down from it is out of stock till April.
