You did a really great job, especially on all the little details! I love the map chest hanging, too. How did you make it? :O You are ready to kick ass in the Edelweiss!

Thanks for the comments!
The map board is a single piece of luan used as a base and cut to shape, then I glued down 3 strips if luan to form the base of the section that holds the map. For the map protector I cut the plastic cover off a blockbuster game/DVD case, cut it to shape, applied a little glue, then laid 4 strips of luan and used brass wood nails to hold it all together and painted it all brown.
The neck sling is still something that needs to be fixed. The actual sling is fine but the "hooks" are 2 brass wood nails with the tip bent down to grab the sling. Unfortunately the sling can unhook itself whenever I lean forward so it's a source of problems that will need to be fixed before the next time I wear the costume.
