BSG uniform button order, anyone?

BSG dogtag
Noticed that Costumebay's got new, improved BSG uniforms (cut looks better etc) and the upgrades extend to the buttons. See here for an example.

I fancy upgrading the buttons on my uniform and, following a quick exchange of emails, he's willing to sell buttons separately. Some online research and comparison suggests that they look the part and the pricing's about the best around plus there's some other bits I might be after from him (am I sad enough to go for a full set of dress uniform medals, given I don't have a dress uniform?).

So, anyone else interested before I put in an order? Looking at US$1/button plus US$5 shipping for any number of buttons, to be split between ordering parties.

Costumebay certainly does a full range of rank insignia, wings etc, sold separately (but you get a set thrown in with a uniform if you buy one - must say I'm vaguely tempted by one of the new pattern junior officer ones).

My view, looking just at rank insignia, is that his stuff is smaller and lighter than Marajadesfather (on eBay) but also quite a bit cheaper. Personally, I think the latter's kit is noticeably better quality. Enough to justify the price premium? I'm inclined to think so but your mileage may vary...

Costumebay does also have dog tags but these are specifically Starbuck ones. Mine came from, yep, Marajadesfather and came with serial number only so you can get them engraved with your own name.

Yeah, the Battlestar insignia being directly embroidered on was highlighted as an irritation by the guys I saw at Redemption. Still, the new versions do look tempting as I still quite fancy a junior officer's uniform.

Hmmm... a thought - this pattern you've made up - could it be extrapolated into a dress uniform?

I would be interested in the dress uniform...

Prior to August (and Galactica 3) would be great;-)
