The back, so far. I discovered that the top fits, but the legs don't. It turns out the original pattern relies a lot more on the stretch in the legs than it does in the top half! I'll need to add an extra panel in the legs so that I can fit in this. XD;

I put some wadding and 6mm plastazote under the black area because in the anime it looks like that area is thicker and stiffer, as if there's armour somewhere.
It kind of looks like a jet pack somehow?!

I'm pretty sure Jeremiah's left side is entirely wrapped in reddish bandages and the "panel" in his left side is really a cut out in his suit to show said bandages (which match the ones going down his arm and around his fingers). But I wasn't going to do that because 1) any hole in the suit will mean distorted shapes every time I move, 2) wrapping red bandages around myself before putting on the suit? You're kidding. XD
So I sewed a panel of the bandages instead and used it to make a really tight sleeve. Also cut a hole in the suit and then sewed the panel on from underneath. I'll put the gold trim around it later on.
