    That is pretty good. Matt, do they really have sewing machines there? I wish I had access to CNC machines. I've always wanted to be able to make stuff.

    I sewed none of it. Used Extreme Flexible Fabric Glue

    I don't mind spilling the ingredients.

    The Jacket itself is a vintage 1980's Members Only Jacket.
    The Red Rubber Material is Kitchen Shelving Mat.
    The Bellows are foam weather stripping.
    The Gray Bands and Pocket Flaps are made from Black Kitchen Shelving Mat (Dyed with Grey Auto Dye in a Spray Can)
    The Sleeve Bands And Waist Belt is also Black Kitchen Shelving Mat With each individual Bump Cut and Glued on. (Then Sprayed with Flexible Rubber in a can)
    The Squares on the Sleeves and Belt are Made from Wood. (Then Made to look plastic)


    The Members Only Jacket was $18.00 shipped on ebay.
    All the Shelving Mats probably? $15.00
    All the Glue?? Maybe? $12.00
    The Gray Dye $7.00
    Black Rubber in a Can $7.00
    Wood $2.00

    But this was a learn as you go kind of thing?
    With alot of trial and error
    Mistakes = $$$

    Next time would be easier.

    Is Silkie attending DCS? If so, can we expect to see him in full dress?

    Awesome, the fact that you used a Member's Only jacket makes it perfect
