This costume began with the pith helmet purchased at Marcon for $40. With that, I was then committed to building the entire thing. The tunic is a Safari Bush Jacket from Gentleman's Emporium for $70. It took it over to my mom's house to help me adapt the collear from the normal, laid down collar to the stand up collar of the Boer War era British infantry tunic. It is essentially the jacket's belt sewn onto the existing collar. It doesn't quite stand up as I should want so I'm thinking of adding some sort of insert or collar stay. I also replaced the buttons. (I did that myself in spite my complete lack of actual talent with sewing.) The Sam Browne belt I got from Sportsman's Guide for $30. The details said they were cut large to go over clothes so, as directed by their size chart, I ordered a size large. It was far too small. I ordered a 2XL and I found it to be just in my size range. Instead of sending that one back, I punched some holes and trimmed some edges to make it fit better. The pant's are just some work dress pants. I need to find a pair of BDUs that match the color. I have a pair of shorts that match fairly close but the two other pair of khaki pants that I have are just a touch lighter then the tunic. If anything, the pants should be darker to transition to the black boots. The picture isn't all that great, just taken against a closet at a Halloween party. It needs to be outside in a more jungle-like environment. It also needed a flash and I always dislike the lighting with a flash right next to the camera lens, as is on mine and most inexpensive digital cameras. The next camera I get will have a directional flash so I can bounce the light off of the ceiling or, better yet, a remote flash.
