Anyway, I made some Dart Tag vests for a game I am running. I wanted to use the DT system, but didnt want people to have to spend $30+ on the basic set just to get the vests.
I threw these together in about 15 minutes, and so far they work really really well. Im definately going to try to make some nicer ones this week, since my hours were cut at work.
The cloth part is just a rectangle of felt, hole cut for the head, and slits in the side for the buckle mechanism. The buckle/strap part on each side consists of a plastic buckle (Jo-ann fabrics; $2-3), and two 12" sections of strapping. If you know how to thread a buckle, it's pretty self explanitory. I can post a more complete how-to if needed. The felt is easily replacible if it gets torn. One of the best parts about this design is that it requires no sewing what so-ever, for those who hate doing that.
Darts Stuck on Vest:
You can also make different temporary add-ons for them, depending on what type of game you are going to play. The game i'm running is a zombie survival horror themed one. If players die, they become zombies and put on white squares. To kill a zombie, you have to hit the white square.
Vest with Zombie Square:
Any (constructive) suggestions on how I can improve them, besides making them not butt ugly?
