home yellow deck handler costume

Recommended Posts

Hello all.

 

I am currently working on a yellow deck crew coverall including helmet. Instead of the black bag at the hip I have commissioend a yellow bag patterned after USN flight deck mechanic hip bags, to include velcro straps at the front to hold a typical fligthlight. The bag will be used to hold the Bayco lights when Im not holding them in my hands plus whatever else I want to throw in there for big cons.

 

Im having the yellow coveralls made from scratch to fit me, orange is easy in the Redkap/AWW line, yellow, eh, not so much.

 

the helmet is patterned after the typical USN crewman cranial with leatther straps and dyed liner, just as my orange is.

I make my own JVC headphones from scratch. I just made up my third pair of headphones yesterday and primed them--they will get a second coat of primer today and then on to paint.

 

I will reuse my vest and make new cuffs from my leftover rubber from Canal Rubber. I just need the pistol belt....and I have completely mislaid my new goggles I got for the project. They WERE with the helmet on a foam head...hmmm..

 

On to some photos:

Nice work! Love the wood replica work.

 

There's a nugget at the Colonial Fleet who does resin cast JVC headsets. $30 cubits a set... If you wanna go that route give me your addy to pass along.
