I just finished sewing the front and back parts of the pants together. Everything is ready to start sewing on the pockets tomorrow.

I just pinned the pockets to the right part of the pants. The darts in the waist area made pinning the front pocket into place very difficult. I will have to be very careful when sewing the pockets onto the fabric. I think the spacing between the front/back pocket and the cargo pocket as well as the gaiter looks correct.

I finished sewing on the pockets. I guess it is a good thing that I am not in a hurry to finish my specialist because I am not sewing these pants again any time soon. I am going to sew everything except the waistband and the belt loops tomorrow and the rest on Sunday.

My husband started to paint the helmet. He painted the ring part white yesterdays. He is going to paint the visor black if the weather stays warm and dry.

I ordered Worbla for the disk greeblies today. If everything works out I going finish the soft helmet and the 3D-printed next week.

The pants are almost finished. I just have to add the waistband, belt loops, pockets snaps, and the hook and eye closure.

I sewed on the waistband, belt loops and the hook-and-eye-closure. The only thing left to do is to add the eight snaps for the pockets and to wash the pants to get rid of all the chalk markings. I have to sew on the snaps by hand, so it will take me one or two evenings to do that.

My square pouches looked very similar to that pouch. I just painted them dark brown, so that all the pouches have the same color and match the screencaps from the game.

The Worbla for the helmet disk greeblies arrived. I also started to make a second belt that I can wear under the riggers belt. The belt should help keep my pants from slipping from my waist towards my hips.

I finished the small belt for under the riggers belt yesterday evening and sewed on the snaps of the pockets this morning. The soft parts of the costume are almost finished. I just have to add the pleats to the cap and the rest of the bias tape.

I made the knife pleats on Sunday. I think they should be a little bit smaller but this the best I was able to do. I do not know how many times I pinned and unpinned the knife pleats until I thought they looked ok. Then I sewed them and everything got pushed out of shape even though I had three pins in every knife pleat.

I pinned them to the soft helmet to see how it would look. I think it should be ok. Most of it will be hidden by the helmet anyway.

The wig just arrived. I have never worn a wig before so it is going to be interesting to see if I can achieve the look of the game or not. Not all components are finished yet, but I will be posting a first costume test with the items that are in a couple of days.

I hope to finish this costume by the end of July. Here are the things that I still have to do.
    The softhelmet still needs to be finished.
    The wrist-com and rank badge have to be painted in a darker brown.
    The helmets disk greeblie has to be made, painted and glued in.
    Last but not least the visor of the helmet has to be painted black.

My husband took some test photos of me with most of the costume items. I am pretty happy with my costume so far. I wished the helmet and cap were already finished so that I could see how they look with the rest of the costume.

The wig needs a hair cut. The bangs are too long. I had to push them out of my face. The wig also itches. I wish I could just go with my summer hair cut.

We are at a standstill with the helmet and cap at the moment. I am still trying to figure out how to recreate the correct frame for the pleats so that I can sew them to the cap and make it look like the one in the game.

My husband got stuck with the helmet. He was only able to paint the white part before the heat wave hit Germany and when the weather finally got cooler he did not have time to do some painting. He still has to paint the visor black and then add a coat of clear varnish.

I will start making the helmet disk as soon as I finish the cap. I hope that we will be able to finish the helmet and cap by the end of July.

I finished the cap today. The cap does not sit right in the photo. I will have to practice putting on the cap and helmet a little bit. The patting that I will add should also help keep everything in place.

My husband spray painted the black visor yesterday. The helmet is almost finished. I just have to paint the edges that my husband was not able to paint with the spray can by hand, make the disk greeblies, add the dark leather badding and was the cap to get rid of the chalk markings.
