Battlestar Galactica Viper Pilot Flightsuit Costume

bsg costume

The modern Battlestar Galactica has launched a thousand cosplays. The dress uniforms, crew jumpsuits, and Viper Pilot flightsuits worn by the cast all make awesome costumes. RPF user Felgacarb did a wonderful job re-creating one of the pilot costumes from textured vinyl, foam, and more. It looks close to screen accurate. Here’s how he made the shoulder pieces rigid enough to stand on their own:

I used heavy suede, with vinyl piping on the edges and backing, plus the dot-material sewn on. All that together was pretty stiff- so I ‘trained’ it by putting heavy objects to hold the shoulder parts folded until they took a set. They seem to stay in shape on their own pretty well now.
