So I might as well go ahead and start this. I will be building an X wing pilot. This will be my second RL costume, and I am thinking one of my favorites. Right now i am just collecting all the material and knowledge I can. I am going to try and do what I can on my own short of major fab (ie, i wont make the helmet, chest box, or compad, they will be purchased from Darth Hair). Everything else i will attempt to make on my own (oh yeah and boots will be bought, not made). Yes, you heard me, everything else will be made by me. I am going to attempt the dreaded Flak Vest. Eventually I want to do the ever sexy TFA X wing pilot, but feel as I did with my TK, I need to start where it all began.

This OT X wing Pilot will probably be my favorite do to the Paint scheme I am going to try and go to. My helmet will have smoke visor, and the rest is a surprise. I have had tons of help so far in prepping to tackle the vest, but will try and keep this thread up to date as much as possible and do an actual step by step build if I can. Sometimes I get wrapped up in my build and forget to document it. Anyways, here is where I am at:
1. Helmet-will order (darth hair)(DH-P/FX)
2. Chest box (" ")
3. Compad (" ")
4. Boots (was going to use my Tie boots but decided to go taller)
5. Webbing for harness and belt ordered from Amazon
6. Fabric and material for Flak Vest ordered from Amazon
7. Jumpsuit (2 Red Kap jumpsuits will be ordered from Amazon and mashed)
8. Leg strap for "flares" and flares (webbing ordered from Amazon)

If anyone can think of something that I might not be, please let me know. Or any "heads up" for when I am going to tackle something, that would be great.

YAY for getting started with your costume building and for ordering the first pieces!
I will be especially curious about the flak vest since.
Good luck with your costume built!
