    Hello and good day. Here at long last is how I made my We are ODST Dress Blues. They are not screen accurate. I was a US Army Infantryman so some old habits stuck. I also used a lot of my own stuff so please NO STOLEN VALOR threats.

    If you have any questions feel free to give me a shout out

    Here we go. I currently live in Germany so a lot of these items may be hard to get outside of the EU.

    Jacket - Royal Marines Jacket No. 1 ca 25-40€ Ebay.co.uk

    Cap - Royal Navy white officer cap ca 20-30€. With black elastic band 50mm

    Shoulder cords - can be made yourself (Youtube) or you can get a lot of different ones. The closest would be the old German army one (DDR Achselschnur, Kordel)

    Pins/medals - Lots Halo Lootcrate and a few from Ebay (Also Gamescom Xbox pins)
    German airborne wings (fallschirmjäger), US Airborne jump wings.

    Ribons - Ebay set ca30-45€, I also made a lot myself, you can orde the ribbon on ebay


    Patches - UNSCDF Right
    ODST Links (Custom made rocker patch, Ebay - 10cm, Font "Denmark" )

    Rank - US Army WWII Weiss (Germany has a store with copies)

    Service Stripes - Self made, White elastic band, 10mm, glues onto black elastic band, 50mm, and wrapped around behind

    Eppauletts - White piping, I used white paracord and sewed it to the edge, or my girlfriend (She is also an ODST) use a white material and sewed it underneath

    Belt is just a belt I got from Ebay.
