Hi, I was wondering if anyone had found any good and relatively cheap flight suits that could be modified to fit the Blue Squadron flight uniform from Rogue One. P.S Preferably an Aussie website or store, having a bit of trouble :/

I think the consensus is to build this from the ground up. They did for the screen, presumably patterning off of the Air Force flight suits. To find the right teal color in something else, then rip it completely apart to add all the new pockets, arm pleats, etc, it's just easier starting from scratch.

One of our guys found a really nice teal nylon, and I'm checking it out tomorrow actually. I won't be able to start tinkering with a Blue Squadron suit until after Celebration though... I'm making a few TFA pilot suits and such before then.

Well if you start making them in the Blue Squad style let me know. I will be on the list to order one Wink
