ok well I'm sitting here at my sewing machine and I just finished sewing on the pocket for the data cylinders on my left sleeve and I look at it and I have just come to realize that I put it on backwards. Meaning that the slant in the lower corner is facing backwards and not towards the front.

My main question to all you fellow pilots out there, is this a major issue and should I take it off, and fix so its facing the appropriate direction? Or does it not really matter that much? Being a full time student and a full time worker doesn't leave me with a lot of sewing time so I was just wanted to get your input on my dilemma. Thanks everybody!

BJ it's really going to come down to your personal feelings. How much is it going to bother you, especially if someone comes along and points it out with a "Hey, that's WRONG!" Confused

I've seen costumers with the slant in front, in back, or more often, with no slant at all. All of them are Legion formal/canon.

So I guess ... is it perfect canon. No definitely not. Can you get by with it? Probably so.

Butf it was me, I'd probably take it off and sew it again and here's why... My suit doesn't even have a slant, so for me, I'd have to make a whole other pocket to sew on, and then the material under the pocket probably isn't even the same color as the rest of the flightsuit due to fading. So now I'd have an uneven colored sleeve, so at this point I'm leaving it and I'll be more detailed on my next version.

thanks for the input Jon. I was actually going to PM you later on today about this. haha. I'll take your advice and redo it since I know its going to bother me. I want to make it correct the first time around. (had to make and re-make my Jedi costume 3 times before I got it right!) I should have the whole suit done here in a month or so then Kashyyyk Base can think about finally forming that squadron we've been talking about for a long time now.


Again, thanks for the help!

MTFBWY!

I think some people just LIVE to point out minor cannonical flaws in peoples' costumes. Dont let them get to you.

It really comes down to what makes you happy. You're the one wearing the costume. Mr. Green

I agree it only comes down to what makes you happy when wearing the suit. You can have the most cannon outfit ever made, heck let's say you have a screen used outfit and someone is going to come along and try to tell you something is wrong on the suit.


The other thing is to make sure you have nice shiny Data Cylinders / Arm Tools on your sleeve pocket and no one will be looking at the stitching. But that statement might be a little biased. And don't forget the metal Leg Flares and Belt Flares too!

That is a great bit of marketing there Ken, but its actually very true. With a nice set of cylinders in there, the direction of the stitching won't make any difference.

Besides, who's to say a rebel pilot would add to/repair his own flightsuit and put the pocket on that way.

*Cue the shameless plug*

Kenny's stuff is great for Rebels and Imperials needing shiny metal things! Wink
