    As the heading states, I'm in need of a bodyglove,neck seal and gloves for a Stormtrooper uni. Any suggestions on sites I could go to get them and not break the bank?

    Underarmor.com, TK409.com, and Walmart (Jersey gloves), respectively. ;)

    Renaissance Dancewear is the best IMHO http://renaissancedancewear.com/, but I don't know if they are in business anymore.

    Shadow Dale Creations makes a good suit and neckseal. http://www.shadowdalecreations.com/imperial.htm I love the built-in neckseal and it is very realistic looking, although the 1-size-fits-all suit is a little big on me and bunches up around the knees and arms. I'm 5'11" 170lbs.

    TK-409 makes good neckseals. http://www.tk409.com/tk409.html I would go for the smaller-ribbed version if he still offers it. The cloth that lines the bottom and goes over your shoulders tends to bunch up and go where it wants. I end up tucking all that inside my undersuit which is a pain.

    You can also use a scuba dive SKIN, not suit. Just look out for any logos that might show.

    And of course, underarmor, or a cheaper version of underarmor that you can find at wal-mart.

    Gloves, you can go realistic and get rubber chemical gloves, or do like me and use nomex flight gloves. They are cloth with leather palms. http://www.copquest.com/12-1500.htm

    I don't have my suit finished yet, but I just went to a local sports apparel story and bought black underarmor stuff.

    Real easy.

    Here's my plans for an E-11 holster if you want to have a go at making one?

    We also do the neck seals on the body glove in different amounts, for those that want a more accurate version.

    Can you tell me which Under Armor items you got and where you got them? I would definately rather get one from a sporting good store so I could try it on instead of getting one online.

    Thanks,
    JT

    Can't recommend UnderArmor enough. I have a set for the summer (hot) months and a set for the cold Winter months. Without a doubt, the best stuff you can buy, however, expect to pay almost $100 for a set.

    I'll second the underarmor recomendation. I have a set for the summer and it was the best money I spent on my suit hands down, in terms of comfort anyways. :)

    There are also some good UnderArmour knockoffs available out there. sportsmansguide.com has them from time to time, and the quality is very good. I troop in mine all the time.

    I agree with the other poster that the best neckseals are from TK409.com.

    I'd have to say Under Armor too. Any sporting goods chains like Dicks usually has a good supply. You can atleast use the store to try for fit then order on-line if needed. I also suggest flight gloves from say US Calvary. Although not screen accurate the dexterity is nice and they are not too hot. Neck seals, definitely TK409 or Shadow Dale Creations.
