The boots are a pair of BATES I picked up at a local sporting goods store. More like what law enforcement use. Real comfy!

Nice, thanks man! Might have to go looking at boots later...

Here is my armor with the Cancer awareness plate on. It turned out so much better than I thought it would.

Question. The hoses on the gaunts, they're elastic tubing right? I just might "steal" this idea..! ;)

Ya they are... nice and flexible.. When I get home from work I'll post pics of the connectors. The hoses are permanently attached to the shirt and detach from the gauntlets. The hose can swivel at the back of the gauntlet, so as I rotate my arm the hose don't  bunch up or try to lock my arm into position.

Thanks

Used brass fittings and latex hose




The hose is attached to the back of the shirt just between the shoulders


The shirt has a loop that just above the elbow that the hose runs through


The gauntlets have another brass fitting that is a pipe closer. A hole was drilled through and a screw & bolt was put in to allow the fitting to rotate, much like a garden hose.



Hope this helped.


Thanks everyone for checking out my work. If anyone wants to find me on Facebook just look up Chris Duke.

LOL... try Chris Duke Tulsa, Oklahoma.

My profile pic always bounces between me in a costume or a black and white pic of me wearing sun glasses.
