    Thanks for the feedback. As for the jumpsuit, I am having it professionally made by a seamstress familiar with Legion requirements for costumes. She is very particular in her work and I have confidence that she will do it correctly.

    @TrooperPX Thank you for chiming in and I do appreciate all of the info that you are providing. I also apologize for any confusion or miss information on all accounts. The person who did all of the leather work is a 50 first member and it was my understanding that he was following the CRL as well as communicating with his GML for information. I suppose the two rivets are on the front to keep the buckle in place. He did offer me the option to have a fake buckle in the front and then a fascinating in the back underneath the holster but I chose the metal not realizing that there would be to rivets and that it would be an issue. I’m not sure how to fix this without leaving two holes in the belt but I will attempt to do so. I do have some Barge’s cement so perhaps I can come up with a solution using that without too much of adjustment to the rest of the belt. Will I need to get rid of the snap on the holster in the back as well? Also are the harness strap with wide enough as they are? Not including the tabs that go into the back piece because that will be changed since I have already ordered a new one. As for the back piece I have had so many issues with the artist who printed it that I went ahead and ordered a different one from Pam on Etsy. It appears to be smaller and she says that it is cast from the molds that are seen in the CRL and as far as I know she has a Mara build but I am not positive on that. As for the Cape, I am doing a brown/tan Cape I simply had a question about the purple color because I had seen some old pictures not necessarily of legion members, that showed a purple cape and I was just curious. @Yankee71 thank you as well for your input and for prompting all of this which any of the previous responders to my questions didn’t seem to address or were afraid to. Not sure but it is very discouraging especially spending quite a bit of money and having these leather pieces that I’m not sure how to fix. It is very frustrating and I apologize if I came off in the wrong way. I have uploaded a bunch of images to a Google Drive shared folder that I will post the link momentarily. If you could both please take a look and provide any feedback for anything that has not already been said I would greatly appreciate it. Feeling really discouraged, embarrassed and down at the moment. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Understood. Yes the strap lays against my hip. I will let you know of future updates. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    If my GML has a miss guided me in anyway I will be happy to come back and report that. I appreciate your input but again it’s too little too late since the construction of the items you are tearing apart has already been done and would’ve been useful months ago when you first saw it. Let’s leave it up to my GM now and again if he has steered me wrong then I will come back here and let you know Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Also here is the measurement of the straps Inches Centimeters Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    My point is this basically if you were so eager to point out mistakes in costumes such as mine why take so long and wait till work is completed? If in fact the items which I have run by my GM PAL do not pass then so be it but in the future if you see something in someone’s WIP thread and no one has pointed it out yet, then maybe you should a little bit sooner. It would avoid much aggravation on all parts Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    This is the decipher version. I have seen many approved with this version. This includes members in my own Garrison. Also please tell me where the exact measurements are for some of the parts you say are wrong. There are no exact measurements as there are in other costume CRL’s. Again I have been running all of these things by my GML and have gotten positive feedback and have made changes to things that he suggested needed changing. Also this thread has been up for months and months and one possibly two people have commented on this none of them with the errors that you have mentioned. Also this thread has been up for months and months and one possibly two people have commented on this none of them with the errors that you have mentioned. Curious as to why you would just be now pointing out all of these things since this is an older thread. ( unless of course you are just discovering it ). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It is already listed in the CRL. ONE CAN DO THE COMIC VERSION OR the Decipher version. The shin guards, cape and gloves are from the Decipher version. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Everything has been run through my GML. My reference is the CRL for Decipher version. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    My leatherworker is almost done with the harness and belt. The clear coat on the back piece bubbled so it needs to be fixed then painted. Curios for feedback from you.
