As the title says this is my progress of my suit and all the accessories needed.

Here is a list of everything on my GBfans suit:

-GBfans suit
-GBfans elbow pads
-Dyed GBfans pistol belt
-Leo Challenge Coin No-Ghost patch
-Etsy name patch
-Military surplus chemical gloves
-Rubber leg hose connector from Etsy
-DIY leg hose
-DIY leather MT500 holster
-DIY key fobs
-Modified Spirit Halloween walkie talkie
-Random vintage military boots

Not really shown are my elbow pads:

Next up is my slightly more accurate suit. The Nomax CWU I got off eBay for about $25.

So far I’ve only removed the Velcro and arm sleeve pocket flap:

And here are a few props to go with the gear:

I’ve also ordered a more accurate No-Ghost patch from Calgary Ghostbusters for the Nomax. Tomorrow I’m going to get a paint pen to color the zipper tabs for a more accurate brass look.

Let me know what you all think. Advice and comments for improvements are completely welcome and appreciated.

More to come as I get there. Have a good one everybody.

This all looks really great, good work! Are the dark patches on the inside of the elbow pads sewn on in the film, or is it the masked on with dark paint? I don't know which way to go with 'em on mine.

Hey, thanks man. I appreciate the compliment.

I cant say 100% which they did in the film for sure. However, I’ve seen most members here sew them on.

I just used leftover elastic I had and painted black. Most just get elastic from the fabric store.

Now just waiting on the No-Ghost patch and still need to order a new name patch.

Well, with the holidays right around the corner the flight suit has been in limbo. My time is going to work and my money elsewhere, lol.

I had also been waiting for my Calgary Ghostbusters patches to arrive. Which they did sometime last week. Below is an image of the three No-Ghost patches I’ve come across.

I really like that Calgary Ghostbusters make theirs with cotton(felt?). It gives off a nice vintage feel.

I’ll have more to post once my leg connector for the hose comes in. Still need to dye the vinyl tubing and sew everything on.
