ah, thanks for posting those links!! that vest is slightly cheaper than the one found and i wouldn't have to order it through e-bay!! that would make it much more convenient (assuming i still can't find one with a collar). the jacket is also great.
i could definitely see zoey with a crowbar. i'm also planning on making a fake pipe bomb and a fake molotov, which shouldn't be too hard. I'm going to sew a couple of med packs as well. i'm pretty excited :3
