Some more reference to look at.

This is the USB Hub, Uni Ball Pen and Cobra Buckle.

Gloves

The gloves pictured are the correct ones for the show, however the current version has more of the grip material on the plam and will need to be modified.

Other mods needed are remove the logos and make a new cuff strap that is larger, possibly out of neoprene.

Also the grip material on the palms and finger tips need to have a metallic green applied to them.

The same paint is also misted over the rubber on the vest.

And as a bonus the Preflight Check List.

At this time some of the lines have not been verified to be 100% correct since the one on display ar SDCC was sprayed over. :angry:

 

Once all text is verified I will make corrections and repost.

Over at ASAP one of the members, davecfprez, got in touch with Galactica's Costumer Designer, Deborah Everton. He submitted costuming questions to her that she was gracious enough to answer for all of us over there, and with permission from Dave (and citing credit to him and Deb, thanks to both of them) here is the Costume related Q & A re: flightsuits.

 

>>>>

 

COSTUME QUESTIONS !!!!

FLIGHT SUIT VESTS

On the flight vest shoulder pads what is the black

material with the circular design all over it?

and

what is the source for the vest black (rubber?)

material

 

Humm...not sure where I got that. I'm sure it was

some plastics or rubber vendor. I'll try to find the

source in my files.

 

GREY MUSCLE SHIRT AND BLACK(?) TANKTOP SHIRTS UNDER

THE PILOT SUITS

 

 

Are the tanks custom made or off the shelf? color:

black or brown. Do the tank tops have a tag on them

still and if so, what does it read ?

(We understand that the black tanks are worn

backwards.)

 

The Tank tops and muscle T's were made for the show.

The charcoal grey tanks were not worn backwards....I

designed them that way! The label reads "Deborah

Everton".

 

 

I'll copy, cut and paste the next question in its

entirety:

I guess my two-pennies worth would be the most

obvious (and unfortunately least likely):

Do you still have the patterns and can we get a

copy?

 

I don't have the patterns. My cutter/fitter might

have....I'll email her and ask.

 

FLIGHT SUIT SHOES

hero boots? Were they off the shelf, a run of

prototypes, a knock off companies version of a

popular shoe? Modifications to the shoes?

 

The closest I have found are Nike Max Air

(basketball) Future Flights. But the bottoms are not

the same, and the pattern on the side is different.

 

Ha! like I could afford 200 pair of Nikes!!! We found

a basketball shoe at Payless (I think) and built the

boot around the bottom of the shoe.

SILVER ARM AND LEG CUFFS

What kind of material? Sommers? Does the silver

cuffs extend into the sleeves?

 

 

The "fabric" is Sommers . The "cuff" was a bit of a

design problem. We ended up using an elastic finish

on the sleeve and custom fitting the cuff with to the

actor with a "ka-chink" thing closure

 

GENERAL QUESTIONS -

How much painting/airbrushing highlights were done

on the suits and where?

Lots of airbrushing ...mostly for shadow as the

material had enough highlights. I can't remember

exactly where...it was a "feel" thing for the

prototype. After that, the talented artists on my

crew worked their magic!

Dammit Danny, I was literally about to post this, have a window open to ASAP for cut & paste and everything. LOL

 

Thanks for posting this though, it's not a lot but there's some hope that she'll give us some better answers and possibly a pattern in the future.

Thank you so much for the wealth of research info! I just got into BSG this summer and I hope to make my flight suit someday soon.

To that end, can you please tell me what the width of the silver cuffs are at the wrist and ankle? The way I eyeball them, they seem to be 2 1/4" and 2 1/2" respectively.

And while I'm at it, as i can't get a hold of a Nixon dork, what are the dimensions of the watch's face?
