Thanks, D'Larian! I'll definitely bring my kit to the AP. My wife normally takes pics of me, but she was out of town this past weekend. I mainly need to bring the flight suit I think. The inseam is the primary area that I'm having issues with. The Cod either sits too low to cover it, or the inseam pokes out a little when the Cod rests comfortably. Thinking of either sewing part of the inseam up to itself so it doesn't dangle as low, or going with some hybrid form of a boba-thong lol.
Another suggestion is too trim down the shoulders so the fit the shoulder flaps more like Jango's and not sticking out over the edge.
Thanks for the suggestion! Unfortunately, I don't think that's going to be an option. The problem is the vest shoulder. The seamstress made it smaller than Jango's but larger than Boba's. Now that I've brought the shoulder in more, it is fighting the curvature of the vest (forcing it to bunch up REALLY bad underneath). It's not visible though.
Fortunately, I'm a big fan of Boba's "hang-off" style shoulderplates (kinda wish I bought some of his instead of Jangos... but at the same time, they might be too wide at the shoulder for my smaller arms... and they'd limit my movement more.
If I trimmed the shoulder down much more, it would expose the small size of the shoulder and the bunching.
I can trim a little (less than 1/2", more like 1/4") off the bottom and outside of the shoulders... but trimming too much may cause them to be disproportionate. Right now they are proportionate to the armor and WOF template. See the picture below to see how it'd be affected.
The black line is how small the vest is and how much it bunches up underneath (the weird black line in middle is the bunching)
The red line is if I were to trim the shoulders to pull in closer to the vest shoulder. Cutting one edge would make it look skinny, so I'd have to cut the other edge.. and then the outside would look too skinny and disproportionate to the inside edges. So I'd have to trim those...
Which brings us to the green lines... now the shoulder's getting small & disproportionate to the chest piece. & my arm. Not only that, but I'd have to move the shoulder up close the seam again.. cutting more holes, risking showing the mangled vest fabric, and giving minimal gain of having the shoulder edge flush with the vest shoulder.
Having said ALL that, lol, I think there's two practical options:
A) Don't worry about it
B) Sew a small patch of additional vinyl between the vest and the start of the bottom edge of the shoulder. This would give a flush fit of the shoulder edge with the vest. However, it would also add an unusual layered "feather" look that might stand out like a sore thumb (and it might fold down irregularly)
I'm personally fond of option A, since I like hang-off shoulders to begin with. It'll be less noticeable with my flight suit on, once I dye it a darker brown & add the double sleeve. My armor is already a crossbreed between Boba and Jango. Since this post has already grown rediculously long, I'll detail my mix below:
Shoulders - Jango
Collar & back - Jango
Chest & ab - Boba (proportionately)
Girth - Boba
Pouches - Jango
Kidney plate - Boba
Cod - Jango
Thighs - Jango
Knees - Boba
Shins - Jango
Boots - Jango
Gauntlets - Boba
Holsters - Jango & Solo influenced (aka Buscadero Cowboy style)
You know... all this talk about Jango's shoulders has made me realize something: I think the exposed shoulder fabric takes away from the armored look... the fabric grabs my attention more than plate. I think that's why I like Boba's upper body & helmet better (aside from colors & weathering).. it's more armored looking & less fabric exposed.
