That's a lot of work, but it looks amazing so far. I look forward to seeing what it all will look like when it's done. Awesome stuff!

Very cool, I can see why you'd go for something professionally made. The price made my eyes water. though considering what I'm spending on Bandai's 1/72 Millennium Falcon I can't talk.

So far, not even including the helmet, I've probably spent around 100-200$ on this project. That's not counting the vest (probably 50$), flightsuit (no idea, probably 50-100$), gloves and boots (easily 50-100$), upcoming costs of paint, and various other costs to add in. Once all is said and done I'll probably have invested like 500-600$ easily into this.

However, these kinds of outfits also end up being worth 3000-6000$ to the right collector, people pay huge money for cosplay stuff like this, not that I'll ever sell it - but I figure I'm getting my money's worth.

Well instead of buying a vest outright (which was 50-80$ for the best ones I could find and they still werent ideal), I ended up buying a couple yards of duck cloth and I'm just going to make it myself. Probably cut up an old tshirt to use as a pattern, we'll see how it turns out.

Got the paint tonight too, going to hopefully have time saturday to paint the plates with the silver undercoat and black top coat. Not sure on a secondary color yet.

Very cool. Yes it could do with a coat of satin or matt varnish of some sort, though most tend to yellow with age so try and find a finish that doesn't. Also some light weathering wouldn't hurt ether like paint chips, scuffs that kind of thing.
