Tips from the Pros
- Jumpsuit or Jumpsuit Bottom Half
Pockets on thighs can be made from the same fabric as the hip flaps.
Make them two 5' x 6', or so, rectangles. Sew them onto the left and right thigh.
Belts and Hip Flaps
- Hip Packs
Three black 100 round speedloader hip packs.
- Belts. COST: $10-30
Two on a black Army Webbing Belt. You can get these at Paintball Retail Shops and Paintball Fields.
- You may also wish to make another belt with two flaps of grey fabric
running over each hip. Two squares one foot by one foot, one over each
hip, will do.
- Sheet Metal. COST: Price Will Vary
File down the metal. Paint the same way as the chest armor.
- Cloth. COST: $2-5
A safer alternative to metal. Just cut out a U shaped flap of green cloth and attach it to the belt that the hip flaps are on with velcro.
- Rollerblading Pads. COST: $5-10
Knee Pads can be made by buying yellow knee pads or buy painting them yellow. You may also wish to attach two spent CO2 cartridges on each to make the dart launchers. Paint them Silver.
Shin Pouches (Guards)
- Soccer Skin Guards. COST: $5-20
You can make these buy sewing Grey cloth over a pair of soccer shin guards and inserting strangely painted pieces of sheet metal.
- Grey or Black Boots. COST: $10-120
