I figured it was time to start up a WIP for this costume. I have been ordering all of the pieces/parts I will need. So far I have the following:

Donut and anh-15-Droid welder
Tan BDU cargo pants-EBay
Extra long Labcoat- random scrubs website
Belt, two mag pouches, butt pack-Omaha.com
M16A4 airsoft-amazon.com
A280 kit-Darth Hair
Czech ruck sack-keepshooting
Long sleeve tan shirt-jiffyshirts.com
Boots-zahal.com
Work gloves-amazon.com
All 4 shades of paint-createforless.com

That is all I have on order/in hand. I am looking for the pack greeblies and hose. I also need to find someone who can make a pair of gaiters for me. So if anyone has any contacts for those two things, I think it will complete my list. Then it will be time to start the real work.

Started work on painting my Duster and pants today. I dyed a labcoat tan with teabags. Please post feedback, so I will know if I am on the right path. Thanks.

Reposting this from another thread....

Remember - the pants and jackets are Tan uniforms with some camo applied for this mission. When I was a Judge, we got so many submissions that had no tan showing at all! Literally every square inch/cm was green.

Rule of thumb: When you think you are half way done with a color - STOP.

Here is the thread that I copied Mac's post from:
http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=84432

There are some pics still working in that thread that shows a decent blend of the camo colors.

The tutorial you were going off of is probably at least 10 years old or older.
You can try to submit what you have and let them know that you used that tutorial. They may cut you some slack or not.

By the sounds of it, I can run it through the wash a few times and get rid of some of the paint. I'm more worried about getting it right than anything else.
