"ESTABLISHED IN JULY 2000, MAKES IT THE OLDEST FAN CLUB ORGANIZATION FOR BATTLESTAR GALACTICA"

THE WEBSITE IS GOING THROUGH CHANGES AS IT IS MIGRATING AND BEING RECONSTRUCTED FOR ITS UPCOMING SILVER ANNIVERSARY NEXT YEAR


"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens.

NOTE:  **THE WEBSITE WILL GO THROUGH SOME CHANGES FOR THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE CLUB ORGANIZATION - JULY 1, 2025**

This Guide will show you how I made my BDU and where to get all the parts. 

Where to buy everything

Shirt: 

I got the 2 pocket BDU shirt but I would recommend getting the 4 pocket one because the 2 extra pockets will come in handy when you do the pants.

Double Tanks

For the double tanks I'm giving you a few options so that you can decide which one you desire to buy depending on your budget. I got the ones from Thinkgeek and they are very comfortable. If you want to buy one thats not really expensive check the last two links.

Boots

For the boots I just used military boots that I already had and I would also recommend that you do that but if you are looking for the boots that they used on the show they are called Gall 8" Toe Zipper Boots but sadly they stopped production on those so the link I gave you is the closest I could find.

Conversion Kit

This is what you are going to need to sew on to the shirt. Included in this package is:

2 - Precut and formed Faux Suede Shoulder Panels
4 - 1 inch gold painted Stealth Side-release buckles
1 - OD Green Fuzzy-side velcro 3.5" circle
1 - Green or black Hook-side velcro
4 - 8" long x 1" wide straps (for pocket and wrist straps)
4 - 4" long x 1" wide straps (for pocket and wrist straps)
2 - 1" Tri-glide Buckles (optional for wrist straps)

Belt

When ordering the belt get it green with the buckle painted gold.

Patch

The link I gave is where I personally think is the best place to get patches.

Rank Pins

There are a bunch of choices when ordering rank pins. I'm giving several options so that you can decide which one you desire to buy depending on your budget. I got the ones from ebay because Anovos is way too expensive and the shipping to Canada for alchemy arms is also expensive. The ebay are very good and they look exactly like the ones from anovos except they don't come in a presentation case and take about 4 weeks of shipping.

Make Sure that you read both version because there are differences between the older and the newer versions of the tutorial. Also make sure that before you sew anything on that you properly pin it down so that it does not move and make sure that they are in the right positions before you sew it down. If you do make a mistake it isn't the end of the world you can always rip it off and sew it back on.

Last of all remember that you don't need to buy everything at the same time and to take your time with it and remember that if you have any questions feel free to ask them in the comment section below and I will try to answer to the best of my abilities.

By the way here is my BDU

Great Job Deathstroke!!!! Kreios also made a guide a while back how to make your own BDU's Both of your tutorials are very straight forward and the links are very helpful as well.

You don't always have to purchase the most expensive items to come out with a totally awesome job as you have done. Shipping cost is a very important factor to consider no matter what the project you're working on. When I'm purchasing items, even if a seller may have a faster turn around time, shiping cost usually make the final decision for me.
