Ghillie suit "How to"

was suggested to post this "how to" of a sniper suit i made last year. if there's any doubt, ill dig it up and post a recent pic tomorrow. apology for grammar, or spelling mistakes. ALSO FORGOT TO MENTION, arrange the colours of burlap according to your surrounding, as you see i used very little dark colors, and i used the light green sparingly.

does the netting only go on the back or does it go around the whole thing
User avatar #49 to #46 - jonnyp (09/21/2012) [-]
can do whatever, there are "Gillie Ponchos" that cover front and back.
#50 to #49 - dritz (09/21/2012) [-]
awesome thanks
User avatar #48 to #46 - jonnyp (09/21/2012) [-]
i did it just on the back.
User avatar #29 - phantasna (09/20/2012) [-]
I made one of these with my friends don't do it not only does it take hours but when youre moving around all the burlap starts to get ripped out etc.
User avatar #33 to #29 - jonnyp (09/20/2012) [-]
i havnt had a problem with that, but like i said, should be mostly vegetation anyway.
User avatar #36 to #33 - jonnyp (09/20/2012) [-]
and also every stitch i used to hold the net on i went around like 10 times each time, and did a clove hitch each time, and then tying it off to hold it...it aint going anywhere, plus for the front, you glue/sew on extra fabric, to toughen the suit up so it doesn't tear when your crawling. attention to detail.

Nice of you to reply to comments helping people I'm sure we didn't do the best job either.
User avatar #26 - comeatmebrother (09/20/2012) [-]
waste of time., just buy one professionally made for like 80 bucks
User avatar #34 to #26 - jonnyp (09/20/2012) [-]
thing is though...they just dont look right to me, http://www.ghilliesuits.com/paintballtrackerghillieponcho.aspx

and real sharp shooting hobbyist like taking their time for a good shot, so they practice by making a suit, thats how pretty much most shooters get their suits, by making them, PLUS if you make it, you can make it COMPLETLY custom to your enviroment, as opposed to "Jungle, Woodlands, or Desert" need to consider "how much green is there, or how much brown should i use, more dark colours or less?" plus i save like 40 bucks.
#16 - anonymous (09/20/2012) [-]
Awesome. About how much money did this cost?
User avatar #30 to #16 - jonnyp (09/20/2012) [-]
30-50 bucks, pants i had, most the burlap i already had, chances are theres some laying in the house, used burlap bags used for trees and such are best, because theyve been naturally worn and discolored. bought extra burlap from a wal mart and fabric store (got like 2-3 square yards of each....being honest i over supplied. 20 bucks) netting i bought here, 5'x9' is 20 bucks http://www.ghilliesuits.com/accessoriessupplies.aspx

Pants i had, fishing line i had, jacket i had. a sewing machine is big help, i borrowed one, then bought my own.



also on the site, you can buy ghillie suit kits.

I'm in the middle of the pic, you'll notice a similar lump of grass as the first one....you just circled a dead stick with leaves. and in the first one, its a side view shot, so you didnt check out my sweet sniper ass. The burlap is just a base, like a background color in a painting to set the mood, so with just burlap, im still pretty visible, once some vegetation is added, i'd be almost or completely invisible. and good eye btw!
#25 to #20 - thedarkestrogue (09/20/2012) [-]
My second guess was here in the red where theres a strange lump between the trees, and If I had a scope I'd have seen you and fixed my mistake.
User avatar #31 to #25 - jonnyp (09/20/2012) [-]
blue circle, to get me in the center, go down 6-8", and left 6-8.
User avatar #37 to #31 - thedarkestrogue (09/20/2012) [-]
I know thats where the guy I was talking to earlier had guessed.
User avatar #32 to #31 - jonnyp (09/20/2012) [-]
then BOOM headshot.
User avatar #23 to #20 - thedarkestrogue (09/20/2012) [-]
The wierd thing is, now that its circled, can totally see the color difference of your suit and the grass.....
User avatar #24 to #23 - jonnyp (09/20/2012) [-]
(response to comment 19 as well)

another thing is location, i just picked these spots to show the color contrast, not to actually hide, i would find an area that is sunk in a little, or behind a mound, mainly because

1; you give the illusion of being level with the ground
2; gives your rifle a place to lay down, so you dont have it standing off the ground 6 inches making a ********** presence.
3; im not trianed either, i was self taught, in a house where my mom is an "anti gun liberal hippy" kinda folk XD.
User avatar #27 to #24 - thedarkestrogue (09/20/2012) [-]
Nice. Most of my knowledge is from a world war 2 sniper uncle (so not modern techniques) and history channel stuff like "Making the Cut".
The other thing most snipers look for is muzzle smoke. Putting a local vegetation camo on the edge of your sniper can prevent that.
#39 to #27 - jonnyp (09/20/2012) [-]
Here's what i mean by finding a low point...i dont even know where i am anymore.
User avatar #42 to #39 - thedarkestrogue (09/20/2012) [-]
hahaha. the awkward moment when you cant find yourself.
User avatar #43 to #42 - jonnyp (09/20/2012) [-]
free interwebs to anyone who can find me XD
#45 to #43 - thedarkestrogue (09/20/2012) [-]
Totally found you.
#47 to #45 - jonnyp (09/21/2012) [-]
here is your internet!
#41 to #39 - jonnyp (09/20/2012) [-]
another pic (all these were taken on the same day, just digging them up now.)
User avatar #28 to #27 - thedarkestrogue (09/20/2012) [-]
lol didn't mean to say uncle...meant grandfather.
My uncle is a gun instructor not a vet.
User avatar #14 to #13 - Fezzle (09/20/2012) [-]
Here's the kick though, that's not him.
User avatar #15 to #14 - thedarkestrogue (09/20/2012) [-]
so that one is indeed just strangely discolored vegetation then. The only other place he could be is on left near the trees. I'm too lazy to make another red circle. In between the two left most trees, theres a small strange hump with slightly strange vegetation.
User avatar #18 to #15 - thedarkestrogue (09/20/2012) [-]
Stills are terrible training tools for snipers. Most of the time you'd use slightly strange vegetation movements and other things like that.
If you cant catch a sniper moving into position, you're pretty much already dead. Thats just what they're trained to do.
User avatar #17 to #15 - Fezzle (09/20/2012) [-]
You see that sapling right in the middle of the picture? He's on the immediate left.
User avatar #19 to #17 - thedarkestrogue (09/20/2012) [-]
Thats like 2 feet away from where I said. Maybe I see his foot or something? lol
User avatar #21 to #19 - jonnyp (09/20/2012) [-]
I'm facing the camera dead on in the first pic.
User avatar #22 to #21 - thedarkestrogue (09/20/2012) [-]
Wow. You have some weird looking locations then XD I'm not professionally trained or anything but thats pretty funny.
#6 - azzera (09/20/2012) [-]
i still cant see you in any of the pics. Good job !
User avatar #5 - anttumi (09/20/2012) [-]
MMmmm bacon pants!
Nice one!
User avatar #2 - sonicg (09/19/2012) [-]
******* nice. Good job mate, that second picture shows you did a good job cause I have no ******* clue where you are in it.
User avatar #4 to #2 - jonnyp (09/19/2012) [-]
and thank you for the compliment :)
User avatar #3 to #2 - jonnyp (09/19/2012) [-]
bang dead on in the middle. left of the sapling....in front of the creeper than comes out of ******* nowhere. (like they always do)
#8 to #3 - bigredtomato (09/20/2012) [-]
Now that you said it, I got a vague idea of where you are in the second picture.

Very well done, now remake the frontside so it looks like a black suit and a white head
Then:
Step 1: lay on the ground with camo side up
Step 2: wait for people to walk past
Step 3: stand up with the suit side towards the people
Step 4: when they look at you, lay back on the ground or slowy move towards them
Step 5: when they approach you (highly unlikely) or you want to dissappear, lay down on your belly (so the backside aka camo side up)
Step 6: record it somehow and happy slendermanning people
