Would seamstressing fit into the "Vendor" category? I have a commission to create a classic (of course!) BSG Warriors tunic & pants. Once I establish the patterns and get through my current list of people waiting for costumes to be sewn, I would be willing to take orders.

I think that is a wonderful idea. People are looking for a reliable source for accurate uniforms. It would definitely be a cool thing to promote here.

Of course, it's going to take quite a bit of time before I'd be ready. I have 12 people in queue for various costume elements. Monolith, you are #6 technically, though it's more like #5 because one costume is on hold awaiting trim from the client.

That is perfectly alright with me. One of the reasons I was happy to commission you to do the uniform is that you have a queue and won't take more orders than you can handle. There have been a lot of problems with people taking on more orders than they can handle and a few orders getting lost in the mix when it comes to Battlestar costuming. Looks like you have the right idea and a good eye for detail.

Thank you for the kind words. I try to be as upfront as possible with people. I've had some people turn away because I was honest about the wait, but most people are willing to wait because I don't rush my sewing & they know I'll give them a quality product in the end. I'd rather be late and have it turn out the best it can be (i.e last for years and years and be as close to screen accurate as possible) rather than just slapping something together and getting it done in a week.

Yup. It qualifies

Thanks. I'll let everyone know when I'd be ready to start taking orders.

Not sure if its possible, but we could contact wilco models and see if we can link to their Battlestar prop and model kits. I'm told they are offering a languatron, belt cylinders, and "blasters". The laser is pretty cool. Black resin...cuts down on repaints. Love it. I have a Blade Runner PKD, DS Gun from Logan's Run, and a Browncoat pistol...all from them. Great stuff.

That would be cool if we could get the link to their models. I've GOTTA get a blaster. Being cast in black resin is a great idea.

It really helps a lot! I put in so much work on my first blaster and the first time I drew it from the holster I suddenly had little white spots showing through!

That would be frustrating! If you were just going to have it sit there and look good, any color resin would work, but the black is perfect for drawing out of the holster. Does you holster have felt padding on the inside?

for right now, I'm acting as the go between for Wilco Models.

You can see the thread here - http://www.colonialfleets.com/forums...ad.php?t=16719
I'm hoping to get enough orders in this to get a decent break on the price.

I know how painful it can be with the plastic BSG holsters. My main one (I currently have 2 complete gunbelts) is lined with felt, but the edges still work over a paint job. Even Leather does the same damage. I know my Star wars holsters used to eat up my resin blasters.

The black Resin is a god save lol.

when I contact Wilco again, I'll see if he would like to be in the CF store here. and then I'll post his info for you.

I've wanted a BSG uniform for a long time, but only recently did I start thinking about making my own. I have to wait a while on completing mine though because I'm currently 5 months pregnant. After the baby comes and I [hopefully!] shed the baby weight, I'll work on my uniform.
