Thanks for the advice Kara. I haven't decided on what to use for sidearms, but I had the nite finders laying around... ( If I do mod them then the pull back thing and the bottom tabs will be gone. also would add a longer barrel. basically use them for a base. I've seen some steampunk mods that looked pretty good. They may be more trouble than they're worth though so I might look into something better.)

Right now I'm working on how to do the holsters. I'm trying to figure out how I can get cross draw holsters to work with my belt and kama. I'm also sewing a top and a few more pouches.

cross draw holsters sound interesting and i don't think i've seen anyone do any. i look forward too see how they progress.

Hey, Anja. I know we've been discussing weapon ideas and I hope they work out. :) Your cut has great potential and I hope to see the progress when I get back in two and a half months!

Keep up the hard work, Anj'ika!

Some updates...

I'm looking into new flightsuit options. I had been planing on sewing a top to match the pants...couldn't match the material and had dye problems....
Same dye, many results. :P


Holster is in the works (with airsoft pistols.) After trying multiple leathers I have found something easy to work with (in light brown.)
Here's a new concept sketch.

I know Joanne and the other dune sea girls just got 2 pairs of pants, and then turned one of them into the top...would that work?

Good idea! ;D That's funny because I had thought about something similar to that (cutting the bottom of the pants, which are hidden in the boots anyway, to use for short sleeves with another long sleeve shirt underneath.) I didn't think about making a whole shirt though. I actually bought a second pair in case of dye problems because they were so cheap too.  I'm not entirely happy with the pants though, but I think I'll look into it some more.

Edit: I just checked the Dune Sea site and it looks like they used the extra pant's legs to make a elbow length sleeve and then wore a tighter long sleeve shirt underneath. This is a great solution for the meantime if I can't find anything else. Thanks Pheonix for pointing this out!

I've acquired a set of UnderArmour (HeatGear), which I may use for my flightsuit. Even though it isn't the original color I was looking for I'm leaning toward using these because they are comfortable and two pieces. The girl in me couldn't resist the fact that the colors match my vest. :P  The holsters, belt and pouches in brown leather should balance out all the black.




Oh, and that's only half a kama. ;)

It's coming a long really well! I love your pants and even your kama (even if it's half!  :P) Nice work! You are farther along than I so I am now looking to you for inspiration!  ;D

An update....finally!
 
This was accomplished with scrap leather, a boxcutter, kitchen scissors, lots of chicago screws, and very little expertise.


The holsters will be cut to fit pistols and the straps still need to be attached.

I'm seriously loving this. The colors are great.

And those boots, haha, I have a very similar (if not the same) pair that I wear with everything.
