I was wondering how much a full bodied, hand made ghille would go for. I was planning on using it for myself for skirmishes with a sniper, but i have decided that I'm going to go for a good aeg or a gas rifle.
I already have the BDU's and a boonie hat with the synthetic thread ready for making. They were meant to fit myself, I'm a medium/large size. The BDU's are 2 sizes bigger so that you will be able to wear other clothes underneath.
So far the materials and clothing has cost me a little under £100 and i was wondering if anyone would be interested in getting their own ghille suit, estimated time for completion will be around 20-40 hours so don't expect anything too soon! Camouflage will be English woodland, comparable to DPM camo if you're wondering.
CHeers for having a look!

@Josh, I'm using British army BDU's as a base, along with a boonie hat. You need some sort of netting that you can cover your suit in, smaller holes would be better (1''-2'' are best). You need to thread the jute through the holes with a special knot, you can look all the knots up on youtube; they show demonstrations. I'm using synthetic thread rather than jute so mine is pre-cut in 12'' lenghts and dyed to the colours that I need. Just use some fabric dyes but only stick to a few colours, greens, browns, black, ect. you need to match the jute to the colours of the vegetation around you so you blend in. I think your thinking of a ghille poncho, they go for around £100, they're only a one piece and dont fully cover you; only your head and back. I've seached a couple of sites and on ebay and hand made synthetic thread ghilles go for around £200-£300! I'm offering to make one for half the price.
