Using this instructable
as a guide, I made a ghillie suit out of a Jute landscaping net. I spray-painted the Jute and sewed it on.
It just had it's trial by fire today and it worked pretty good. I got several stealth kills where the enemy did not notice me. Some even walked right by me!
Apparently the camera does not like the colors I used. In reality the colors are darker and more natural looking. The white/tan is actually dark brown/black. The blue green is actually dark green.
There are five different mixes of each color, this does not show in the pictures.
Edit: Just so I don't have to explain this again. This ghillie suit is not absolutely perfect!
It was made by me, an amateur
, in less than twenty-four hours
. I had to Improvise
in some areas, (ie. I had no cargo netting handy). I know, it's hard to believe. Improvising on a ghillie suit, what a terrible crime. It still needs some
touchups here and there, but it serves it's purpose just fine
. I, for one, am quite proud of my handiwork.
Yes, it may look bad in the pictures, but you should see this in real life.
So, now that you know, please no more "This sucks!" comments. I get your point. Really.
