Personally I prefer comics Rick look but I am looking forward to seeing the photos of this. I'd like to cosplay comics Andrea one day myself.

Journal

Upgraded Badges (Posted 23rd September 2013)

Decided to replace the cheap badges I am already using, with a set of much improved badges with a more accurate look and shape.

Handcuff Holder (Posted 14th August 2013)

Sourced a screen accurate Basketweave Handcuff Holder.

Belt Keepers (Posted 14th August 2013)

To keep Duty Belt secured properly to trouser belt I sourced some accurate belt keepers.

Basketweave Duty Belt (Posted 14th August 2013)

Decided to upgrade Ricks belt to a more accurate one using a Basketweave Duty Belt with nickel buckle.

Uniform Test (Posted 19th May 2012)

Hat was darkened by Alias and patches attached. Worn together to see how it all looks.

Badges Attached (Posted 8th May 2012)

Shirt arrived so I then affixed collar insgnia, name badge, and county shield. Patches need to be attached then it's done.

Basketweave Belt (Posted 6th April 2012)

Basketweave security belt was sourced from same site as shirt and trousers.

Hat Test (Posted 31st March 2012)

Reusing the gold campaign cord from my Supertroopers project, I test fitted that and the badge to the hat to get an idea of how they look together. I'm happy with the result. However the band on the hat will need removing, and the hat itself darkening a shade with fabric spray. It fits perfectly too.

Sherriff Badges (Posted 31st March 2012)

Due to the complexity of scratch building something as intricate as the sherriff badges, I opted to buy some ready made ones that were pretty spot on.

Sherriff Jacket (Posted 23rd March 2012)

Bought the type of jacket Rick uses during Season 1. Tricky to find and wasn't cheap....

When it arrive patches will be sewn on to the arms.

Sherriff Shirt (Posted 23rd March 2012)

Shirt is a US police Class A shirt in two tone Tan/Brown. I bought an identical shirt from the same website 3 years ago for my Supertroopers project.

Hat (Posted 20th March 2012)

Hat is a Cattleman cowboy type. Once it arrives will see how close colour is and darken it if needed using fabric spray.

King County Patches (Posted 19th March 2012)

Ordered 4 screen accurate patches, 2 for the shirt and 2 for the jacket.
