    I've always been an Indiana Jones fan. In 2007 I was doing some research and found that there's a lot of accurate Indiana Jones costume pieces out there! I started collecting them almost immediately.

    Here's what I started out with:

    [​IMG]

    Breakdown:
    Hat-Akubra Federation Regular
    Jacket-Wested Special Offer ROTLA lambskin
    Shirt-What Price Glory
    Bag-Costumebase from eBay with Todd's Costumes strap
    Belt-local Army surplus
    Gun belt/Holster/whip holder-Costumebase
    Whip-Adam Winrich's "Indy-on-a-Budget" 8ft 4plait cowhide whip
    Pants-Merona Chinos from Target
    Boots-Sketchers
    Gun-Webley MkIV replica from Western Stage Props

    Here are some recent pictures of my Last Crusade gear:

    Breakdown:
    Hat-Penman Last Crusade beaver felt fedora
    Jacket-Wested Last Crusade goatskin
    Shirt-Azuma Last Crusade
    Bag-Todd's Costumes with Wade Egan strap
    Belt-same
    Gun belt-Wade Egan Last Crusade
    Holster-Todd's Costumes Webley holster
    Whip holder-Todd's Costumes Raiders
    Whip-Midland Whips' 8ft 12plait cowhide whip
    Pants-cheap eBay replicas
    Boots-Todd's Costumes Alden replicas
    Gun-Wade Egan Webley WG resin replica (painted by me)

    I have since acquired much more accurate pants from Todd's costumes, a whip holder from Wade Egan, and I'm using a Magnoli bag.

    I also have a less accurate Raiders set-up. I'm looking into upgrading it soon.

    Looks like you have a really great gear collection!
    I have a pair of Magnoli's Adventure pants but maybe someday soon I will get Todd's replica pants as they seem to be very good Raiders replicas.
    Great photos and thanks for sharing!

    I've got a Magnoli bag before it was the olive green color (something I'd like to think I had a hand in:behave).

    I'm pretty sure WPG still sells authentic, vintate MK VII bags - that's where I got mine. It was perfectly faded olive green, I love it! Best part was, it was the same price as the replicas!

    that's where I got mine, New Old Stock, in fact, I still need to send it through the wash at least once! Wade Egan makes great straps for these, too btw. That's who I got mine from. :thumbsup

    Also BTTFfan88, I recognize you from your pics that you used to post over at The Raven. What's your handle over there? I can't remember anymore.

    That's where I got mine. A word of caution, though. The webbing used to hold the strap rings gave out fairly quickly--looked like some sort of dry rot. I did a bunch of research and was able to find some polypropylene webbing that's a close color and weave match that I used for repairs.

    Thanks for the compliments. :)

    A word about Todd's pants. They seem to fit a little tight. Mine are 36x33. I normally wear 35x34 in most pants. Todd's fit me just fine. If you order a pair, I'd suggest ordering a size up in the waist.

    I'm Mr. Fusion at The Raven, COW and the Indy Lounge. I post ever so often at The Raven. I hardly post at COW, though.

    I wish I knew that before I had to retire my last two original bags because of the webbing falling apart.:cry

    I painted up a new Webley WG not too long ago. Here are some newer pictures:

    Just need to darken your whip slightly and everything will look great :thumbsup

    Thanks! I'm actually just letting the whip darken naturally with age and use. I use Pecard's leather dressing every once in a while.

    I guess it's about time I update this thread. This is the most recent addition my Raiders gear: a Garrison Hatters "Streets of Cairo" fedora.

    I met Lea Thompson a few months ago at Fanboy in Knoxville, TN. I also met Shatner and Nichelle Nichols. My brother and I got our picture with Nichelle, but Shatner was... more expensive.

    Great getup! Ive been thinking of actually working on my Indy outfit for Conventions to make it a bit more accurate lately... This breakdown you listed will help a bit as I try to get a few more pieces in gear before my next convention.
