Well, I'll be modifying S10's or FM12's, depending on a person's budget. Very similar to what some of you guys have done, although I plan on making the filter over the mouth more accurate. That's about it.

I'll post here as soon as the fabric is available!

Yeah... I like the FM12's only because the Lenses arent HUGE like the S10's but FM12's are kinda hard to find for cheap. Im just wondering what your gonna do for the "Shutters". I havent really seen a good Vector with an S10 because they dont do the Shutters. I also plan to make my mouth filter different too as soon as I go back to touch-up my Vector. I am very excited for the fabric!! i cant wait to see it!! =)

Leadmill: its ok i would never steal his ideas for re-sell, i met Capt. Jack at a con and we talked about my mask and i told him everything about it, i tell everyone about it!! i wish to inspire ppl to do Vector (and some ppl i met didnt want to deal with ppl over the internet) Im just curious on the "Shutters" for the S10 thats all =)

Well I really dig the Kanye west sunglasses idea you used for your FM12. If they're too small to fit the S10, I've got experience working with sheet plastic and I would just cut some shutters myself, paint them black and add them on. Would be a tad more work than using the shutter sunglasses, but the result would be the same.

For Vector? Probably not. He doesn't have a VPU.

I should have an idea in the next few days how much the fabric will cost. It's pricey, due to it being custom. Expect $20 per yard. Fortunately, you don't need much to make a Vector costume, so it's still gonna be cheaper than buying that snowboarding gear (or whatever it was), and more accurate!

I ordered in some test swatches, so I'll let you guys know as soon as I know.

Note: I am not using, nor do I intend to use Cosplay.com as a place to make sales. The below information is strictly for those of you who have been asking me about the custom print Vector fabric. If you wish to contact me regarding a sale, please visit my website (link in my profile) and contact me through that website.

LONG POST! But this is all good information for you Vector cosplayers!

I just got the test swatches in today. I ordered 8 different types of fabric, and am considering two of them to be viable options. Here's the rundown:

For those of you who want the best quality Vector fabric, I strongly suggest getting it in Upholstery Weight Cotton Twill. This is more expensive, but a worthwhile investment. This fabric is 58" wide, and weighs 7.2 oz per square yard. It's the closest thing I can get to the fabric used for BDU's. It's 100% cotton though, not part polyester part cotton. The cost of this stuff is $35 per yard + tax and shipping.

Then I have something for you guys on a tighter budget. I can also have this stuff made on Quilting Weight Cotton. This stuff is thin (think like a cotton dress shirt, or a kids Halloween costume even, or so), and weighs in at 3.2 oz per square yard - it's also only 42" wide, so you may need more yards to make your costume than you would with the heavier stuff. The print will look the same, but the durability and feel of this fabric is not as nice as the upholstery weight stuff. The cost of this is $20 per yard, plus tax and shipping.

So those are the two options. Both pricey, but custom fabric doesn't come cheap, even if it's thin fabric.

Orders of 20 yards or more get 10% off, so that's kinda cool! If you want to pick up enough to do your own commissions, that's always an option!

Please note that I'm not the actual printer. I do this through an acquaintance, so basically you order it through me, I'll have it printed, shipped to me so that I can inspect it and make sure it's good to go personally, and then I'll ship it to you. The design was made by me, so it's technically being bought from me, I just get it as it's needed.

I also plan on making Vector costumes by commission, but not until after I free up some time. Right now I'm only selling the fabric (unless you wanna take up a commission and you don't mind waiting until spring of 2012 to receive it!)

But how much fabric do I need?

Well, that really depends on your size and whether or not you're using a sewing pattern. If you're using a sewing pattern - GO BY IT'S INSTRUCTIONS! Here's a generalization if you decide to wing it without a pattern. I always suggest ordering an extra half yard or so, just in case you make a mistake.

HOODED JACKET
XS - 2 5/8 yards of the 42" fabric -OR- 2 1/8 yards of the 58" fabric
S - 2 3/4 yards of the 42" fabric -OR- 2 1/8 yards of the 58" fabric
M - 3 yards of the 42" fabric -OR- 2 1/4 yards of the 58" fabric
L - 3 1/8 yards of the 42" fabric -OR- 2 3/8 yards of the 58" fabric

PANTS
If you're using the 42" fabric, 2 3/4 yards will suffice for sizes XS - L.
If you're using the 58" fabric, follow the below guidelines:
XS - 1 3/4 yards (waist size below 28)
S - 1 7/8 yards (waist size 28 - 30)
M - 2 1/4 yards (waist size 32 - 34)
L - 2 3/4 yards (waist size 36 - 39)

Anything past a L, I can only guess. You're kind of on your own, unfortunately. I haven't made enough XL and larger garments to guess that for you.

So as an example, a guy like me who's 5'8", 150 lbs. and usually wears medium size shirt and pants, would need 5 3/4 yards of the quilting weight cotton ($115 + tax and shipping) -OR- 4 1/2 yards of the upholstery weight cotton twill ($157.50 + tax and shipping). That should hopefully give you an idea of the price you can expect to pay to make a single Vector costume, if you're a size medium. You can see how the price difference is sort of balanced out by the amount of fabric needed due to the width of the two options. To me personally, a price difference of about $45 (after taxes) seems a small price to pay for a significantly better fabric. But that's my opinion. I wanted to provide options for people with different budgets, so hopefully I've done that!

It's still much cheaper than buying that snowboarding gear. :P

Here's one last link to the sample image, in case you missed it:

I think all the Vector outserts are custom made. The only currently existing ones you can find for sale are black, clear, or red.
