General detail shot of the front of the vault suit worn by my boyfriend at Anime North 2010. He commissioned this costume from a friend of ours and I later decided to try my hand at distressing the fabric, as I hadn't seen many/if any Fallout cosplays do that before.
He used to work in an auto shop a few years ago, so for some reason I had the image of that sort of wear and tear in my mind when working on this.
For the sake of me not typing it out a billion times how I did it, please PM me with any questions about the weathering.
