There's nothing better than character dressing (and kilts). I spent yesterday scouring op shops with military precision, armed with a magic letter that let me take whatever I wanted - even from the elusive 'out the back' regions - without having to pay a cent. No, I'm not in the habit of knocking off charity stores, I'm working on a Salvo's campaign (but I wish it were always that way!).

kilt/belt - vintage

epaulette pins (worn on collar) - army surplus
boots - ebay (a bit big but I just can't win with shoe sizing)
