STEP THREE:.... uh....

I dont think I am going to weather it this close to Halloween. If I screw it up, I won't forgive myself. Better to wait... so I think I am done. This will be the first year as Jack with a Frock coat, Swagarts Fid, ACME sash and I redyed my pants for the bazillionth time.

I was given the okay by my fiance to buy the suit, but a couple of questions came to mind in regards to selling the rest. 1.) Since it won't arrive til after Halloween what are the chances someone will want to buy it? 2.) Should I offer some of my old swag to sweeten the deal (i.e. beard braids, Zf)? 3.) Do i offer my old coat with it? 4.) How much do I sell it for?

p.s. she already bought it......

people DO buy Jack stuff year round, but you'll get way more for it the closer it gets to Halloween. I "sweetened the deal" on mine by offering a Mom's head with it. But i'd probably keep the auction to "new" items if you can.

and sell "old stuff" as a second auction.

imo

went out for a pre-Halloween trick or treat event and dawned the coat when it got cold. Everything looked great, but sadly my beard fell off before it even started.

yea it does, but I don't have the man chest to pull it off... my shirt is a CB and the "v" is not so pronounced. But I do wish it had puffier sleeves.

The pauliepoos shirts also comes whit a "deep V" I bought this costume also the coat is ok for it's price it needs new buttons and maybe new pocket flaps the shirt is fine although it is a very thin material , the pants , one word CRAP , sash and belts are junk as well

most of the historical costumers I showed the costume to were impressed by the entire thing. You may say the pants were crap, but thats what and how breeches are. The costumebase ones, i'm not sure how those fit normal people

for me the CB pants fits perfect , but I wasn't talking about the fitting of the pants it's just a thin material when I tried it on the buttons popped right of and I was afraid what would have happened if I was going to sit haha .
on the other hand the waistcoat is not that bad also only the pattern is not right for me I work out alot so I don't have the lats like a normal person has Embarassed

I'm in a debate over weather I want to keep my CB breeches or fix up the other ones, neither one fits my waist, I wear suspenders under my waistcoat but I hate fighting with them when they fall. The waistcoat is okay but, I decided to keep my painted OST waistcoat becuz I dont feel like changing my stuff back to AWE.

if I go forward, I'd totally buy CB again (but this time the gray ones), my CB's are one of the best things I bought for this bad boy.

Well I'm 5'10'' and 175lbs and it fits me fine. I don't know my chest size but if you want it that bad and dont think the Standard will fit you then I'd buy the XL and just bring it in to fit you.

I honestly think I might have to get me one of those. There was a guy in the St. Paddy's Day parade here in Denver with one, and it looked FANTASTIC, even close up.
