The project is finally starting to really look like Boba! Let's start with the knees. I added velcro and epoxied some 1/2" #8 screws to the inside of the knee plates:
When the epoxy was dry, I dyed some 1" elastic straps to match the flight suit, and applied grommets:
My wife sewed velcro to the knees of the pants:
And we have finished knees!
I got my vest and neckseal from my mother-in-law, who made the pieces from scratch with no patterns. She did a hell of a job! I weathered them with the same method that I used for the flightsuit in the last update. Here's the neck seal on my very dapper mannequin:
For the chest armor, I epoxied screws just like I did with the knees. When they dried, I added a little graphite dust to the tips of the screws and then pressed them into the vest while it was on the dummy. I used the center-line of the vest (based on the distance between shoulder seems) as my guide. The graphite powder left a mark for each screw, and then I added grommets:
