Hi all,

I'm looking into starting an X-wing pilot costume and had a question.
How good are the jump suits and flak vests that are available on ebay?
I've seen some ebay costume makers ('costumebase') whose jump suits look nice to my untrained eye but wanted some advice before moving forward.


Thanks,

From what I've seen (and from what other RL pilots are saying), it boils down to this...

- Costume Base's flight suit is probably one of their best items. RL pilots who have one speak highly of it.

- As for the flak vest, consensus seems to be that it's a good starter, but needs a few modifications to make it really shine.

Check out these thread(s) for more info/opinions:

That's good to hear.
I'm trying to source all the parts before starting so I'll have a plan of where to get everything. (and the cost involved)
The 'Costume Resource' guides here are a Big help.

Thanks!

I have also heard good things from people who bought their TIE pilot jumpsuit. They both use an almost identical pattern.

I just ordered an X-wing suit myself, and it should be here in a week or two.

I've heard good things about it.

And Col-Mas... they ship faster than you think.
