    "Stop, runner!!!" That's definitely a cool costume and with all the accessories, too!

    My original (homemade) costume was just an estimation based on watching the original movie on DVD. I never had a definitive source from the internet or otherwise. The costume you see on the mannequin is my original costume that was homemade. I can't say that I particularly like the appearance of the grey stripe as it wraps around the chest area. The mannequin has a small chest area (approx. 38-40). I will give you the measurements for this one to give you some ideas as a reference.

    The width of the stripe from side to side (horizontally as if you were looking straight on) is 17 inches at the top. At the bottom it stretches across approx. 20 1/2 inches as it begins to wrap around the chest of the mannequin. The way the outer tunic fits after the sleeves were removed made it necessary for the grey stripe to be a little wider at the bottom when you are looking straight at the torso. The height of the stripe from top to bottom is approx. 6 1/2 inches.

    If you look at the Cosplay costume you can see that the measurements are very similiar. A 21 inch wide stripe at the bottom (horizontally) and 18 1/2 inches wide (horizontally) at the top. This stripe is 6 3/4 inches high. I forgot to put the measuring tape up at the top for that one. The Cosplay pictures look a little better since I have it laid out flat on the table when I took the photograph. I specifically asked for a 41 inch chest size when the Cosplay outfit was ordered. I think the Cosplay outfit looks much better.

    A 4 inch wide stripe (top to bottom) I think would be a little too narrow.

    Just received my fully functional calcium-carbide burning prop thanks to the assistance of a talented RPF member. As you can see it was neatly packaged. The craftsmanship, engineering and attention to detail is exceptional. I have put three tanks of carbide through it and it functions flawlessly. I have already gotten my fingerprints on it and a little wear and tear. A couple of the pictures are without a flash so it gives off a little different color. It's an awesome feeling to finally have a costume that captured my imagination since I was a kid back in the 70's. To accurately round out this costume will require removal of the Follower's belt latch (that I put on) and the fabrication of an authentic looking holster for the DS gun. Thanks to everyone who contributed to making this happen. I will routinely monitor this thread/posts to see if I can be of any assistance. See ya.

    If its one of Rylos DS guns it should be......

    Fantastic Logan's Run costume,
    My friends mom made one for me years ago,
    and I had a Logans costume made by K&M Designs years ago
    but I sold that awhile back.
    but I still have a working DS gun (not one Rylo's) and a follower which I think is one of Rylos.

    FYI:

    That run is over a decade old and it didn't belong to any one individual. There were numerous people involved w/ that project who offered product to their clients. A number of pieces were sold in kit form too, resulting in lessor quality builds from whomever?

    Any number of people could have built it w/ any number of different parts. There were numerous "scrap" or what I considered C and D pieces that I never even touched. If it didn't come w/ an agreement from me, I didn't build it. All told, I probably built less than half of those pieces while others offered the rest. Some were really nice to! Like I said, a lot of people worked hard to make that run happen, but I tend to get the undue credit. Just trying to set the record straight.

    Jim lost his mind a long time ago.

    The Boots were very simple and would not hold up for long outdoors.

    My replica belt I ordered a few years back from Ebay (Katarra8) was 3 1/2 inches wide. My CosPlay costume came with a belt that was 4 1/4 inches wide. Either way, looks like your cosutme turned out very well. Welcome to the Sandman Club.

    Just got my Sandman uniform from Cosplay, today. Nice solid construction, fits great! One HUGE problem, though. The collar and the chest stripe are light blue, not grey. Looking back at their website again, the photos of the uniform clearly shows that the collar and stripe are light blue, and why I didn't notice that is beyond me. My fault 100%. Not sure if I can even retrun it, because technically, there is nothing wrong with the uniform. The website showed light blue, so I got exactly what I ordered. Not sure what to do about this.
