Condition: Not Set

S-Con 2012

3rd April 2012: Vest Lettering Complete Both vest's for Chris and Barry.

3rd April 2012: STARS Lettering The lettering from Leadmill's vest was traced to get the exact scale and the final pieces cut from felt. A small handle was made and padded with wadding to match then fixed at the top at the back.

Carried out by aliasdotcom

2nd April 2012: Pouches and Holster Holster ready to be fitted and finished pouches.

2nd April 2012: Pouches Complete The small is to be worn around the front and the larger one is worn at the back of the waist belt.

Carried out by aliasdotcom

2nd April 2012: Pouches Pouches were made from matching tan fabric, backed with card with seam detail and faux fastening. They will attach to the waist belt with belt loops.

Carried out by Aliasdotcom.

25th March 2012: Almost there Still needs the webbing and laces sewn into place on the sides to fasten the vest and the lettering needs completing on the back. Vest is shown without and with the foam pieces inserted afterwards.

(All carried out by aliasdotcom!)

25th March 2012: Pockets and Webbing Pockets were sewn into place on the front panels and strips of matching webbing was added above each one. Pockets fasten with velcro tabs.

25th March 2012: Front Black velcro was used instead of burgundy and sewn onto the overlapping front panels.

25th March 2012: Collar Collar was attached with the small tab added at the top and padded out with wadding then the ends were sewn up.

22nd March 2012: Holster almost done Holster and shoulder strap:
Top is what the holster looked like before. The old straps and shoulder strap were removed, sections of the gun holster cut away and the white stitching darkened.
The top was then extended to match the references using foam covered in matching upholstery fabric with stitch detail added around the edges. This section was attached behind the holster. The original holster strap with press studs was recycled and attached to this extension. The press studs will be painted a matt black to match the others used.
Matching belts were used for the new straps with holes punched all the way along. A section of belt was fixed alongside the holster, which will reach to the waist belt.
The new shoulder strap was foam covered in the same fabric again with stitch detail added and tabs sewn on top so the belt can be looped through them.
Metal swivel hooks at the front and back will link with D rings to connect the straps around the body once adjustments are made.

Carried out by the awesome aliasdotcom!

29th July 2011: Gloves The same make as Barry's ^_^

27th July 2011: Holster Some work needs done to this, needs another strap etc. And one of the straps needs replacing but I thought this was a good base.

14th April 2011: Pockets Pockets on the original green vest are made at an angle and the main part of the pocket is made up of five main sections that fold onto themselves when sewn onto the main front panel. A square of velcro is used to fasten them.

14th April 2011: Connecting Strip The vest attaches at the front with a seperate panel that overlaps from right to left fastening two wide strips of velcro. Interfacing was used for this strip of velcro panelling.

14th April 2011: Front Panels Using an original green vest as a pattern, the front panels were put together, leaving a gap at the bottom of each for the foam padding to be added later.

14th April 2011: Back of the Vest Note: this is the remake version.
Using an original green vest as a pattern, the main back panel was put together, leaving a gap at the bottom for the foam padding to be added later.
