Good question and I agree about the colors.

I bought two of these coveralls (in orange). One for the actual flightsuit and the other for the fabric to make the pockets. At $30 a piece, this isn't too bad.

As far as the ejection harness . . . you can sometimes find 2" silver webbing at fabric stores. Usually, you can buy it by the foot.

Awesome! Lemme know if y'all need any help. Looks like you guys have prices covered, and there are also 'buy pieces' options for the soft parts if someone doesn't have access to someone who can sew. We'll still have a few guys that need to order pieces, so you guys are more than welcome to tag along on our orders. Corellian Base has a project going too I believe.

So is this helmet considered "canon"? Laughing

And yeah, technically the Aurabesh gets you through. For an example, here's the Top Gun variant I designed for a Hazard pilot: (it's about halfway down the page.)

Great looking design, and I love the "inside jokes".... you know in Clone Wars, the guys have tattoos or things written on their buckets in the same manner.

So I guess this makes the idea "canon"... LOL

Special thanks to Michel and Jon for sending me lots of references, images, and measurements for this costume.

Bespin folks, if you need info on a specific piece of this costume, let me know and I'll send an email your way Smile

Yup, pretty much buried him. And that didn't include my stash of generic pilot reference pics.

Ok, I have done a Google product search for orange coveralls and orange flight suits. Is there a difference between coveralls and flight suits? And if there is a difference, which is preferred?

This is what I get when I do a search for coveralls:

And this is what I get when I do a search for flight suits: http://www.google.com/products?q=orange+flight+suits&hl=en&aq=f
