Here's where I'm at so far with my Shadow Guard. I'm trying to put things together before I start ordering and what nots. Any input or adjustments for my thoughts so far are more than welcome.

Armor and Helmet:
Walt's Trooper Factory
http://waltstrooperfactory.com/armor/

Undersuit:
Black Twill Coveralls
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007EZ1A2G/?c ... _lig_dp_it
Looks like there are two chest pockets that I'll have to remove, maybe I'll see about moving them inward so they are covered by the chest armor. I am ordering a second pair, that I will cut up for material to make the Kama.

Boots:

Belt:
https://www.anovos.com/collections/star ... -accessory

Gloves:
I actually have a pair of gauntlet style, leather motorcycle gloves. They come up to my mid forearm and flair towards the back. I'll post a picture later. After I remove a HD metal logo, I think I'm good according to the CRL.

Optionals:
I'd eventually like to do a robe and saberpike. Not going to try an tackle those right now.

Thanks for the input.

Looks like you've been researching!

Good luck with the build :)

Ok. Couple of Lessons Learned.

1. I ordered the wrong belt. It was only after a couple of weeks I realized that I ordered the belt with the silver stud on the side. TIE Pilot/Officer style and NOT the plain belt that it shows in the CRL.

Question: Can I paint the silver stud black or did I just get a head start on my TIE Pilot Kit??

2. Red Kap Overalls. I ordered one my size, 46L, and was going to order one oversized, 62R, to have left over material for the Kama. Unfortunately, I missed in the pictures that the Red Kap Overalls have an elastic belt that runs through it. Meaning, there is not enough clean material in the back of a set of overalls to make a kama. I'm 6'4, 220lbs. I need about 30" x 30" of material.

After an hour in Jo Ann Fabrics, I found some upholstery material that is a good match, color and texture, for the overalls. Not gonna lie. I thought that I was going to make a change mid stream and go with a TFU Royal Guard :tr: . I found a Red Duck Canvas that matched the coveralls pretty quickly.

If you're looking for material this is what I found:

It was on sale. 2 yards for less than $20

Sigh.

Painting over the Silver snap is perfectly fine for that modification.
