First of all, I'm not dealing with the proton pack. Maybe eventually, but not right now. There's not a whole lot to really talk about, just purchases and alterations. And when I decided to do this, I went to Amazon that same day and started ordering. One of the hardest things to find a decent alt for was that belt, and I wound up finding a luggage strap (!) in the correct colors. So that's what I got. I also had some trouble finding shin guards even close to those from the stills, but I did the best I could. And they actually look pretty good with the boots I'm planning to wear.

I have already spent a not-insignificant amount of time working on this costume. While a good starting point, the Dickies coveralls are not exactly screen accurate.
So fat, I've removed the "Dickies" logo from the left pocket, removed the right pocket entirely, turned the left pocket into a mock-cargo pocket with a top flap and button, added the collar flap and buttons, sewn down altered the fit of the top half, hemmed the sleeves and pants, added belt loops (not screen accurate, but more for my own comfort), and sewn on the patches. And with the fabric that I trimmed after hemming, I was able to create the cargo pockets for the front of the pants (and the collar flap, actually), but haven't sewn them on yet. There's still plenty to do, but so far, I am pretty darn pleased. (And I shouldn't have to buy anything else!)
