Originally Written by SOL Low-Light on the MilSimOG, I am just adding it to the MilSimE and it is his info. It is good info and I would like to see it live on after the MilsimOG is no more. Thank you SOL Low-Light for the info.

Thought this might help some of you that are thinking of making your own ghille suit....Enjoy.

Ghille Suit
For this little project you are going to need the following:

€coveralls (preferably ones with a loose fit and are a dark color)

€about 5 sq. yards of burlap

€a lot of green dye

€brown dye

€scissors

€sewing needle

€strong thread

*OPTIONAL* Camo spray paint (olive drab, brown, tan, black)(available in outdoor catalogues and stores)

€and most of all...patience, this will take a while.

Step One

A)Dye about 4-1/2 sq yards of burlap green (preferably an olive drab)

B)Dye the remaining 1/2 sq yard of burlap dark brown

Step Two

Cut the burlap into 2" X 18" strips

(Keep the colors seperated)

Step Three

Tie a knot (a knot, not a bow) in the center of each strip.

Fray the strips so you have a burlap ball with lots of string hanging off. (this makes for better camo)

Step Four (this is the part that takes all the time) Take the burlap and sew them on to the coveralls. Put 8-10 stiches THROUGH THE KNOT of the burlap pieces. BE SURE TO PUT MOST OF THE BURLAP ON THE BACK AND SHOULDERS OF THE SUIT.

After this step, you should be done. Of course, add and remove the strips as you like to acheve the best look for you. And remember, the more burlap, the more your outline will be broken up (to a certain extent)

Step Five (OPTIONAL)

AT A DISTANCE spray camo paint on the suit. (use random color splotches kinda like woodland camo)LIGHTLY SPRAY, YOU DON'T WANT SOLID COLORS YOU WANT IT TO BLEND IN, NOT STAND OUT.

I am working on some pump and focker conversions. Does anyone know what the thread size for the front low pressure chamber is. It looks like 3/4 but the fit is kind of tight.

I figured that since I play in a Kilt, I'd make some accent pieces to enhance my "look" in the field...lol.

Before:

and some 20+ hours later.........................

After:



Stitching:





Triquetras:





On my arm:




Before anyone says it, I don't care about any "bounce" factor on gear/equipment. I play that if I'm hit, I'm out and I don't dabble in semantics about it.

Now that that's been said~~~

For anyone not knowing what they are, they are called Vambraces (forearm guards). The Romans invented them (or so they claim) but they (or similar representations) were used by just about every primitive-to-ancient-to-current- fighting force(s) on the planet.

The Celts used an all-leather version (as I have made), hardened into armor by one of 2 ways: boiling them in water or soaking them in melted wax. Historians have held the widely accepted opinion that boiling water was the most likely form of hardening the leather. I have not done this because it makes the leather chaff the skin. Originals were often lined in lamb's wool or wool cloth and it was acceptable because of the climate normal to the region. Obviously, I don't need that here in PA.

A bit of history is that for some years now, I've dabbled in creating leather hunting accessories...knife sheaths, handgun holsters and possible bags for muzzle loading.

I just spent 20+ hours on them, everything done by hand. The longest (and most difficult) part was the sewing. Getting them in the proper arc of my forearm was a pain, even though I made patterns in cardboard.

The black outer layer is 10 oz leather and the brown accent pieces are 16 oz leather. There are 2 inner layers on each Bracer for padding/anti-chaffing and each of these layers are 6-8 oz upholstery-grade leather.

I was going to harden them into true "armor" by submerging them in boiling water but I decided they are too nice to risk the dyes bleeding into each other. Instead, I'll rub some conditioner into them and then a final layer of wax to protect them.
