The shell shock stuff can go on pretty thick, if ya layer it.
We did a wood rib frame, with a canvas stretch and painted on the shell shock.
Kinda like building an airframe.
Our finished suits weigh in at around 55 pounds and survived repeatedly falling down a 15 foot slopped wall to a concrete floor.
All they got was dirty...which is a poor way to say 'distressed'.
I wore mine last weekend at C2E2..the Chicago version of Comic-Con.
You asked for it ya got it....there a couple shots of Orbiter MFDs in our release trailer.
We will be available to download on VODO 21 Feb 2012

Looking very good so far.
I think it might be kinda cool if you threw in an Orbiter MFD or two in a background shot, just as an easter egg? ;)
Oh yes it's a cool outfit for "Rosenmontag" in Germany.
Starting tomorrow, you can download the episode on VODO.net.
It is free, although you can make a donation towards continued production.
L5 is now free and easy...it's on the YouTube.
