No doubt this is covered to some extent here, and I know there has been discussion on the RPF and elsewhere online, but perhaps I can gain some insight or direction here, in an area where my skills are a bit lacking.
My results so far have been disappointing. I am building a costume, but looking for a possible source for clothing worn by the NOSTROMO crew. I know much of what I've seen online is fan-made, with countless hours of research and handwork, but my sewing talents are MIA.
I am aware of the Magnoli offerings, but I'm also aware that many of his items, while adequate, still remain somewhat inaccurate, especially for the price (I bought the Nostromo shirt, before it was recently "corrected").
I have discovered better versions on that other site and elsewhere, but most were pieces and limited offers from past years, so I missed those chances due to timing.
To date, it seems that finding a reliable, willing (and sufficiently talented) seamstress in the Central U.S. is nearly impossible. Fandom and cosplay are relatively alien here. Pardon the pun . . .
I would guess there are still those out there, dedicated to getting the details right and willing to help out those of us in our quest.

Gosh, you've really got some nice toys here . . .
