Re: The elusive cape harness


The flaps on all the older cowls[except the Sonar/Ice suit,which had no flap] are latex coated canvas added later,and were not sculpted onto the cowls in their original form.
All the suits use cape harnesses,new and old. It is a MUST,and is the only way to assemble them properly and get them balanced with the rest of the suit.

The flaps were fused onto the underside of the cowls with latex,perfectly cut to fit into the oval cavities and line up with the holes.

Canvas is very thin,but very strong,especially coated with latex,which also makes it stretchy,so every advantage is there. It sits flat,where a latex flap needs to be thicker for strength,so the same 'sandwich' effect couldn't really be achieved.

Re: The elusive cape harness


I totally agree John, theres no better way to do it than this way.
Looking at the Clooney suit you really wouldnt think its done this way although if you think about it, clips would just add all the weight to the neck and you would constantly have to fight it.

Its amazing what secrets these suits hold regarding construction lol

Thanks again for the time you put in to this, its why Im here :up

Thats a great shot Nick, thank you!

I wish. I forget where I snagged it actually.

That symbol in the corner usually means its from Ebay though.

Doing my part to resurrect the original thread and rehosting some great images on imgur. These should be in the order they were posted:

I'll do what I can but am sadly no miracle worker. Some are just lost or behind private logins now and without the original poster's help, we may never see them again. Heck, even in those cases, if the OP would email the pics to me, I'd be happy to rehost them!
