Beastmaster Flak Vest
Beastmaster Draw Closures
This vest was done with custom closures with leather strapping, grommets and boning to reinforce the sides for better strength.
Beastmaster Full Zipper Closure
To make it easier for the customer to remove the vest there is a full length zipper from neck to small of back that is held closed by velcro.
This vest is for a female customer and as so it is darted to fit her perfectly.
Beastmaster Velcro Back
As pictured here, the zipper is made invisible by the over lap of fabric and velcro.
Reptillian Flak Vest
This vest was made of a heavy alligator patterned faux leather. It had a great quality and wonderful luster. I matched the vertical pattern front to back to make sure that it showed off the style.
Originally this vest had a back opening but the pattern on the fabric was nice so I did not care to ruin it. I put a shoulder opening in with velcro.
Here you can see how the back is untouched.
This is the entire costume sans the flightsuit. It was weathered and all hand pieced and cut by me for a customer.
Boba 1313 Flightsuit
This is a custom fitted and made flightsuit with thigh pockets and addtitional stitching to get the ribbed look on the sleeves. This was weathered for the customer.
Boba 1313 Harness
Here you can see the upper harness that goes over the vest from an angle. its a hand quilted top piece with zipper and snap at the neck. It closes at each side of the lower piece and tightens down.
Boba 1313 Back
The harness repeats in the bakc and here you can see the weathered cape of olice and the red sash. This was a challenging project but overall very rewarding.
Hazardous Environment Vest
Hazardous Environment Zipper Back
My regular vests use only velcro this one shows the half zipper with a custom chosen fabric to fit the customer's color scheme. There is an added ribbing at the top of the jersey knit neck seal to give it a further sealed look for the kit.
Hazardous Enviornment Custom Fabric
This fabric was hand chosen by me after doing some scouting and talking with the customer. The side closures are not the usual D-Rings but contoured parachute buckles in black.
Hazardous Environment Phifertex
This custom vest has an extra side layer beneath the buckles made out of Phifertex. It is meant to give the wearer an additional 'sealed' look. Phifertex comes in a wide range of colors.
Hazardous Environment Detail
As you can see with all my vests there are linings. I ran the velcro horizontal on the opposite side so it is easier to adjust on the wearer. Seams are all reinforced and carefully placed. Each measurement given is key.
Shredder Flak Vest
This Shredder vest is for a custom costume. The triangular shoulders, neck and hem were met to reflect the sharp edges of the shredder armor.
Just another view of the triangular shapes.
The customer wanted the ease of pulling the vest on by himself so this design reflects most of my merc vests.
B5 Earth Alliance
Babylon Five Earth Alliance
This was a project done for a friend. Here you can see the finished project after he put his rank and pins on.
Everything was hand pieced by me, down to the exact seams and top stitching. Here you can see the Epaulets and the ranks as well as the neck.
This was quickly modeled after its near completion. You can see the pants to match and how everything fits together.
This took a lot of working - getting the pleather to lay over the zipper. Its a trade secret ;D
Every piece of piping on this costume was hand made by me. There is nowhere that sells the correct color in the correct size.
Scarlet Witch Avengers Jacket
Front of Jacket
This jacket was made using a duck tape body cast of the customer and hand draping my own pattern pieces onto it.
The metal pieces are hand cut and filed craft metal and attached with contact cement so that if need be the jacket can be tailored.
Back of Jacket
This shows the overlarge zipper used in this design.
There are layers of about seven different fabrics and the jacket is fully lined.
The under piece is actually a tank top that has been stitched with pleather to help it match the overall feel.
