    Hello all,

    After years of talking about it, I was finally able to realise my WWII Ulitmates Cap costume.

    The top, was made of duck-cloth, and put together by my wife in two days. The pants are a pair of blue BDU pants, along with a pistol belt in some pics, and an ammo-belt in others.

    For the leggins, I had originally ordered authentic boot gaiters (size 4), however, my calves were too big. I guess Polynesian legs weren't on the mind of the people designating sizes.

    The circular shield came from Chris Fields (a fantastic piece), while the Templar shield was bought at a novelty store, and re-painted by me. For the Templar shield, I had visions of taking progress pics, but got too lazy.

    Now, without further delay, the pics:

    Special thanks go out to Chris Fields, Old Man 808, my buddy JEDI, and of course, my wife.

    That is fantastic. As a WWIi reenact or, I prefer that look.

    Any chance your wife would share the pattern she used for the jacket?

    Cheers

    Thanks,

    Looks like I could use a basic Ike jacket pattern and add material to make the front. But whatever you could get would be great.

    Cheers

    Sebastian,

    That, apparently, is the route my wife went. She also just looked at the pics I gave her and cut shapes from there.

    Thank you, Bobby. I see you are putting one together as well. Good luck, man.

    Also, an update on pattern: it's gone. Sorry, guys...
