    This may have already been discussed.... I may have been the one to do it. Either way, don't remember.

    Is there any kind of heavy duty work boot for Star Army usage? I mean, the Type 31 work boots are suede and the entry mentions nothing about chemical resistance or toe caps or anything else you would need for a potentially hazardous working environment.

    I guess the type 38 Jika-tabi are even better now. : P

    I mean they're popular in real life for construction workers and they actually have some mention of protection benefits on the wiki.

    I added a note that the Type 31 work boot does, in fact, have a steel toe cap. It's basically a space Timberland.

    Would you be more specific the type of work you're talking about here?

    For chemical environments it might make sense to use an AMES suit.

    Mostly just slip resistance (which I figured all the boots and shoes in the Star Army wardrobe have) and having sufficient protection against crush/electrocution/puncture in something like, say, ordnance handling, or heavy repair shops, supply warehouses, things like that.

    I updated the wiki page for this, as requested, with more details like a physical description and a list of characters who've received the citation IC. If there's any problems with it or you need anything more added, let me know.

    I had an adoptable that came with an option to get custom clothing so I asked the artist to put layers of the Star Army uniform on as separate layers. So now I can make a series of "getting dressed" images:

    Uniform-Related: All Star Army awards now have a wiki article! This allows us to provide more details about each one. Thank you to everyone who helped me out yesterday getting these made.

    What if there was a crop top version of the Type 35 duty uniform jacket, which would be worn with a pleated skirt that goes all the way up to just under the bust (empire waist style), or with a similar mini-dress? If nothing else, it could be used as a maternity uniform.

    Not sure how to answer that one. It's an idea, but it doesn't sound very professional. ...

    I'm having a hard time picturing this to be honest. Do you have any images out there to give an example?

    It could be a really cool dress uniform. Or maybe something that the clerk corps are allowed to wear. Though the first image that popped into my head was with a really long maxi pencil skirt, even with your "pleated" description.

    Are you thinking a short cropped jacket like the Ersetu jr. officer jacket? @Wes

    My interpretation of the pleated skirt version. Really want to do a maxi/pencil dress/skirt next.

    Yeah.

    Ame's concept is pretty much what I was thinking. I made a few modifications to make it closer to the existing Type 35:
