Yes, Zeta is right. Below is a link to a pick of an original belt - you can see how the covers go on and the top of the belt is there with the power connections, etc.

OH MY! AUCTION PHOTOS!!! *shivers*

Never trust them for "dressing" Jenne. As Hand-Schaub pointed out, they are always all sorts of messed up. It would not surprise me if they had the boots for gloves! :roll: They all have the forearm armors backwards and the boot armor goofed up too. UGH!

That's easy to say... - but it's hard to tell what are "acution photos" I know.
That's why you got your Cylon pals here! We are happy to help.

The Lycra from the undersuit is very thin.
The skrit is in my opinion heavy.
So i think, it works better for me to attach the skrit on the battery belt and not on the undersuit.
Because if i walking around, i

Laminate a canvas layer on the inside of the suit for support and strength.

Also a good idea.

I have a question about the backpack. How do you wear it ? Is you's loose on your shoulders ? Or do you have a strapping System to hold it in the right Position ?

To my knowledge, no strapping was used for holding up the backpack on the original costume.

It simply rides on your shoulders without additional attachments.

Krop suits have straps, a REAL Cylon has a 2 x 3 patch of Velcro under the chin plate that supports the chest plate. That is all to be a REAL Cylon.
