black shutter glasses? kinda like the kanye west thing where did u manage to get those? im using attic vents i got from home depot might try the shutter glasses, what color did u get them in? im using car led for the inside of mine,they wrap around the eye part of the goggles kinda too bright though also im using a c3 mask not the avon cant afford it. heres a pic of it so far the lens are not silver anymore we painted them with a metallic black, i also wanna get some nylon ripstop for texture on my jacket but that stuff is hard to find.

Random thought, but bear with me:

What if you snagged a silver / dark grey hooded jacket, then laid something like thick chickenwire or hexagonal mesh overtop of it and just sprayed it black? When you lift off the wire it should leave a bunch of black hexagons bordered in silver. As an airsofter I've seen people do that on helmets and guns for a "rattlesnake" pattern, but I'm not sure if it would work on a full-sized jacket. If I ever come across a jacket in the right color while I am perusing goodwill, I'll be sure to give it a shot, but someone with more money / time than me might feel like trying it so I thought I'd share. If it works like it does on plastic, it would be a super fast, cheap way to get that pattern and really complete the look.

So i bought an s 10 but i need to find the lenses i also need to get them in blue as well as make the shades. duct tape looks kinda cheesy, ive tried attic vents and im just running outta ideas. while i was at dragoncon i spoke with a guy cosplay as hunk and he said he was doing vector next year and he had the fabric and honeycomb shapes any ideas for this? i currently use a parka but i want that nice shiny look vector has along with the shapes, is my only option to hand draw these out and what would i use on the fabric?

Wish I could find the exact material Barton uses for their snowboarding jacket and pants or atleast similar.
They are too expensive at about $250 apiece, but the pattern is PERFECT.
Burton Vent Tru Black Honeycomb Pants


Burton Seville True Black Honeycomb Jacket

Perfect? Close, but the hexagons are a bit too big for my taste. Here's a fabric I'm working on that will be custom print and available for sale. I'll also be doing Vector's coat, pants, mask and vest by commission in the very near future.

(Image is pretty big, please click the link below)

Just so you know, those hexagons will be just under an inch in size - just like Vector's.

If he's going to be making them to sell I don't think he'll want to give all of his trade secrets away
