This is looking really Fantastic!.. although I'll admit I am a little sad you didn't use my Tempad file ha ha. Great work all around not only on what you are making but how well you are documenting it to help others. Keep it up!
Oh wow, those are some awesome tempad images and thank you for sharing that file. In my first round of the costume I skipped out on the accessories and focused on the costume, knowing I'd upgrade the accessories down the road. Looks like that time is near

I've seen so many people stall out or never finish a costume because they focused on accessories or weapons instead of the actual costume. I get it though, sometimes it's easier and more enjoyable to do those pieces instead.

Great file and I'll get one started! Thank you again for putting that together. I'm no good at making STLs. When I started the build there weren't many parts available and I'd really want to do the prop justice. Mine is nothing more than a top and bottom shell painted gold. It just clips to my belt as decoration.

The screen I made was a rectangle cut out from a piece of plastic (from a takeout container!) and I gloss painted one side of it. It was glued in place with the unpainted side up to simulate a blank screen. It's a cheap trick and highly effective illusion.

The updates continue and several fronts:

I've updated the purchase links above with notes and new options as we've unearthed a few things.
Thanks TheNickFox for your continued efforts!

I have made a small run of PVC patches that I felt were a close match: PVC Patch
Full disclosure here, I used the "TVA prisoner colors" instead of the TVA employee colors because it was only after I had completed the run that I made the color revelation. This is a super minor detail not many will pick up on, but FYI, once those spare patches sell off I'll reorder a proper color set. Man, that really bugs me, but it's all good. They still check out.

I've compared a few photos to my rig and have decided I need to reprint my shoulders and went with 110% for my stature. Additionally, I'm remaking my brassards so I can raise them higher on my arm to better align with the on-screen references. Mine are sitting low on the bicep. Minor details here, but closer to screen accuracy. Also in the photo below, I happen to have a 3 inch TVA Emblem on my left arm. Looking at the reference image, I've updated it to the 2.75 inch patch from Etsy. Mine also had a black border, where I'm confident it's orange all the way around. And a note, I believe it's velcroed on, not sewn, so I'll likely velcro this one on the updated items.

Ugh - you can totally see the color difference in my side by side. See? Really bugs me lol. Now you can't unsee it. Welcome to my level of nerdom when it comes to this costume.

Here's my updated 110% shoulder by comparison. I think it's more in line for my size. I'll be handing off my original set to a new recruit. Thats right! We got recruits! lol. Friends across time, allies to the end.

This last update is freaking cool! I believe I've found the helmet mount for the ... well... helmet! It wasn't too difficult and fortunately it appears to be a found item.

Helmet Mount - NVG Tactical mount

It appears that the helmet has some cabling that's running around the side, but I haven't seen a better reference photo for this:

So with that, I started looking for the lens, or camera, that's mounted to the NVG (night vision goggle) mount. I couldn't find anything that matched the on-screen reference, nor do I know how to even mount the thing, but I'll have the mount in hand shortly and will take a look. This is the closest I've found and I'll just share it because of the amusement I found with the camera... it's a time-lapse camera. See? TVA? Time-lapse? Heh. Anyway, its a kick in the wallet to buy, but it's a legit camera you can use if you desire. Or fabricate a similar lens. What drew me to it is the lip around the lens and what appears to be white lettering on the inside of it. These two items don't go together, nor does it fit the silhouette of the profile shot, but again, this is what I've found. If you find the actual thing, please share and let me know! It'd be cool to have a functioning camera on the helmet for photos or video.

ATLI EON Time Lapse Camera -- note: not confirmed accurate, just a weird amusement in my search.

Thanks again for following along. More to come.
