In studying al of the available references for Calfor:

"U.S. Medium Olive Drab Nylon Grenade Vest, dyed brown..."

For his vest, it is dyed black. With the grenade pocket tabs, grenade pocket edge tape, and the vest's edge tape painted brown. The center front left closure flap remains black.

I have not looked to see if this is a standard coloration for these vests, or unique to him.

The pain of masking and spraying all those nearly drove me mad.

Hi all,

First I want to apologies if I am losting in the wrong manner. I am new to this.I am working on putting together a Rebel Marine and was wondering what your thoughts as to the acceptability of these boots.

I see the standards says the following:

Boots:

Chelsea-style boot in brown or black leather (can be suede). No visible laces.


I appreciate your help.

Those are interesting boots but its not what we're looking for on this costume. The sole is the issue here. On the Scarif Marines, their sole is flat. Most of us are using boots similar to this: https://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?pid=849861022&CAWELAID.

For example, I got mine at Kohl's and modified them by adding anklet cuffs and spray painting them brown.

Here they are finished:
