Inspired by this. Many thanks to @miraculousturtle,
without whose advice I would be up a creek with this story, to @clairelutra,
whose help delivered most of the characterization in this, and to @larvesta,
whose guidance and judgment was invaluable in keeping this from being a
The furoshiki/friend fabric quilt is batted and backed with a pretty Kona violet solid. I’ve got some violet thread and bias binding left over from another project that will work, although I may use a bit of holographic Sulky in light gold or silver to do some accent stitching. I also invested in some curved quilter’s safety pins, which will hold it together and not scratch my hands or arms when I turn it. Off to quilt.
Fancy meetin’ you here, friend! I’m proud to announce that I’ll now be taking commissions on vault suits in any size, number and style (from Fallout 3 or Fallout: New Vegas). Preparing for a nuclear winter has never been so easy!
To get started, shoot me an email at irradiatedlady(at)gmail(dot)com and let me know what state/country you’re in and if you need your suit by a certain date. Next, you’ll need to snag one of thesejumpsuits in your preferred size and color. I recommend the color “postman blue”. You’re welcome to check if someone on ebay/wherever has it cheaper, but it needs to be the same style as the linked suit. No zippered pockets, please. Have it ship to your house and when it arrives make sure it fits the way you would like it to. Once you’re sure it’s perfect, snap front and back pics of you in it (that way I know where to add all the detailing so it’s custom to your body) and ship it over to me. I’ll take care of the rest!
Pricing is as follows; • Base modifications - $75 free shipping in the US! (includes detail stitching, yellow accents, collar/back numbers, removal of unnecessary pockets and sewing up openings/vents/etc) • Weathering - additional $35 (includes sanding, softening, sun fading and “grime”)
I only accept paypal, but I would be happy to discuss setting up a payment plan. I’ve made several suits for other people and can provide photos and contact info if needed. My fiance and I also make all our own props - check out our Fallout cosplays! - so if there’s anything else Fallout or post-apocalyptic related you’re hankering for (caps, headgear, pouches/belts, weapons, etc) just let me know! Thanks!
