Hey all! Denny here from NYC. I just figured out how to upload photos. I've taken some insanely high res photos and took measurements on the Poe NYCC 17 suit.

I also work next to the fabric store that sold the original pilot trim to foodles and did my research.

I think I found something pretty damn close... I just mailed some to Phil Kellar and have a few rolls myself. Let me know if you have any questions.

Denny



That looks amazing. Do you have any idea where I can get my hands on some of that ribbing? I would love it for both an A-wing costume and MKII of my X-wing costume.


If I need to make a run to grab more I can. Just wanna do one single run... Let me know if anyone is interested.

Here is a color comparison chart put together by a friend with the most likely cordura candidates



In our estimation, the two most likely fabrics are either the Khaki or the Olive. The Olive is not quite right, as it has too much of a black tone. The Khaki needs more green.

Our next steps are to attempt dye wash of the khaki to bring up the green levels.

Stay tuned.

Here are a couple of fabric sample I have gathered in 1000d and 500D cordura





My inclination is that Khaki seems to be the best match for color. Contrary to it's name, it is far more green than tan.

Thoughts?

Think any of these could be good. Trick is. Are they coated or not coated? The coated ones may be toxic to wear ...

There's very little uncoared cordura available in terms of colors. But I've never heard anything about the PU coating on the back of cordura being toxic.

I mean. Urethane is urethane. If you do make a suit I would line it... Long day of trooping and sweating. Can't say that I would want urethane coating directly on my skin.

I mentioned this in another post - but Foodles ended up dying an uncoated version of theirs.

I've got a dyer here in NYC. If we can get a hold of a few rolls of 1000D cordura uncoated, maybe we should all go in on a special dye order...

Oh yeah, I'd line it always. The feeling against your skin is kinda yuck.
