    first, Rikarus is correct, Blackstar is a great place for references. :)

    Second, there aren't many choices right now. Probably the only one readily available right now comes from battlestargalactica.org. I have a complete Warrior costume from them.

    We are trying to get some home made jacket patterns uploaded to share it easier then reproducing them and mailing them out to people.

    If you have follow up questions, just ask away.

    Can anybody comment on the quality, accuracy, and value of the battlestargalactica.org warriors uniform? Any online reviews?

    Mixed reviews on them.

    I bought a Jacket from them 6 7 years ago as a beater and while the color is off I still have it and have worn that thing to hades and back.

    I had a great experiance with them and their customer service was second to none

    The Tan tunics are way off in the neck and the jacket is the wrong color.

    The bridge officers uniforms are not bad.

    BlackStar is working with them to get a more accurate product out which is good.

    Chris Pappas is onboard now and hopefully his input will lead to a screen-accurate costume

    Thanks for the info, that really helps. I guess I need to finally join BlackStar and find the thread so I can follow the progress. Since Chris is now on board, I'm sure they'll be putting out an accurate produce. I'm no expert and not sure what to look for in the neck of the tunic.

    I have a pair of Sidi Full Bore's that have been resoled with a Vibram sole, but they are still the original color and need to be dyed. Any tips on dying the boots or a place to send them?

    You best bet is to join.

    Chris will do the boots for you if you want otherwise you can dye them yourself.

    I'm wearing it in my profile pic.
    Quality is great, but they run a little large.

    Yes--but we don't sell stuff. We do have a classifieds section though, but no jackets.

    Katarra8 on eBay currently has jackets, too.

    The BEST Warrior Jacket? That's yet to come. :)

    ANOVOS to the rescue!

    [​IMG]

    So, that's a screen used jacket being authenticated by someone I've been led to believe used to wear one. :D
    A taste of something to come from Got Maul (On the left), and ANOVOS!

    I know right?!?!? I have an old BSG.org jacket that I wear now and then which as far as Mila is concerned means I own one and that should be good. I showed Mila that picture and she said that I needed the ANOVOS jacket when it comes out. WHOOOOHOO! Thanks Joe! :D

    Too cool! Made from screen used? You know what's sad is that I throw mine on with a tee-shirt and jeans and it barely gets recognized. When it does get recognized its only by someone who loves it. I don't know if that's cool or just means that we're getting old. Ha! "Would that constitute, a joke?

    Thanks for the kind words folks. The one thing that I noticed is how different the details are than what people currently know or at least than what I have ever seen.

    I've seen an original BSG warrior jacket up close and I remember that it has an extra layer inside under the lining that gives it the stiffness. I've yet to see a replica jacket done that way. Now that would be cool and accurate.

    Its not just the fabric lining, it uses a couple of different stiffening agents that interfaces between the liner. I was very surprised myself with the jacket and also the shirt and pant stiffness as well!

    I'm hoping that it's not too warm or hot to wear all day at a con, or maybe has a zip-out ling even if that would be inaccurate. I don't want to sweat in it all day and it pick up a perma-funk! LOL
