I figured it's time for me to get a move on on my costume bucket list, and since I'm 99% done with my TI build, I decided to start on the next costume on the list: the Hoth Trench trooper/Ranger.

I'm actually planning on building two different versions, one for troops in the dead of winter, and one for relatively warmer weather.

That being said, my supply list so far is as follows:
4 yards of lightweight denim in what the bolt calls "papyrus" from Jo Anns
6 yards white blizzard fleece from Hancock Fabrics
4 yards tan blizzard fleece also from Hancock Fabrics (the bolt calls it "camel")
2 packs tan/beige bias tape
2 packs of bias tape in close to papyrus
Lots of reference photos.

The current plan is to go with an accurate rifle, the DH-17, the scarf, and the hat comm greeblie, if I can find one. I may or may not do the hard pack at a later point.

I'll post up photos of the fabrics either tomorrow or over the weekend as well as the pattern I'm using for the boot covers.

Out of curiosity, does anyone know what happened to the hat pattern that was in the Hoth yahoo group? I vaguely remember seeing it, but when I went back to look, it vanished.

There never was a Hoth Hat pattern posted at Ice Station Echo

BUT

what is there are two people to contact for a pattern...

Rachel Orange
and
Me..

Rachel did the slightly newer version of the hat after the real Hoth Hat was photographed....

and...
not to burst your balloon...
but none of the fabrics should be fleece...

Wink


Here is a fabric similar to what I used for my vest:

http://www.fashionfabricsclub.com/p/18162/Ecru-Twill

this might work for the jacket...

disclaimer..
fabric is tough to judge on-line

http://www.fashionfabricsclub.com/p/16642/Ecru-Fine-Line-Twill



I do intend to work on some more of the greeblies for this costume...
but..
that will probably be months before I get around to them....

Hello Joshua! Good to see another Hoth trooper in the making.

As Phyllis said, fleece isn't used for the costume, unless you plan to line the jacket with it . . . but that would be extremely warm.

The fabric I used for the jacket was a twill and it looked/feels very similar to denim. The jacket was lined with a thinner white fabric. The vest fabric was the same that Phyllis used. I found my fabric at Hobby Lobby.

As far as greeblies go, contact these folks.
four grenades: Richies
hat greeblie: Darth Hair

Depending on the weather...
I sometimes wear no shirt under the jacket...
and if I wear it outdoors in Chicago's winter..
I wear the same long sleeved tan/sand colored t-shirt that I wear with my ERS...


You don't really see what is under the jacket...so anything goes...

Very Happy
