Take a pair of old BDU's (camo clothes) and sew some fish netting on to them.  Then take strips of cloth (green, black, brown etc.) and tie them to the netting.  Thats the simplest way to make one.  Thats pretty much what i did and its awsome.

Ive never made one, but ive looked into this a couple times. There are different ways to make ghillie suits, and the one i think is the best is the one that marine snipers use. It really depends on how much money you want to spend on making this. Since i dont really want to get into detail ill give you a website. http://www.geocities.com/stalker217/ghillie/

Also remeber it doesnt make you invisible, but if you can use it right you will be close to it. Also if you really want to hide(ive learned this from marines) and you smoke stop, becouse they can smell you and dont use really smell soaps and such. Also since this is for paintball remeber you wear a mask so dont wear something that pushes on it and you dont need face paint couse your wearing a mask.

Also if you want to sneak what i have learned(came from a master of ninjistu(spelling)) when you walk place one foot forward but dont put any wait on it. Place it all the way on the ground then transfer the wait on to it. Also rember if you are in the woods(wich you probably will be) if there are suppose to be noises even little ones you dont have to be as carefull, but dont over do it.

I had my mom sew one up for me out of that burlap camoflage.  The Burlap can be purchased at Wal-mart, Bass Pro, Cabella's, ect. & there is enough material for a top and bottom.  The left over material can be zip-tied to verious parts of the gun for a ghillie effect. 

Have it patterned after a hooded pull over sweat shirt or one of those American Indian pull over hooded horse blanket shirt/jacket things. Make it a size or two big as to give it a wrinked affect when worn.

All we play alot in the woods and this suit works great.  I have gotten some unbelieveable close kills with it.

Total Cost is about $15.00

Okay

1. Take a olive green flight suit or BDU's.

2. Take some netting preferebly 1/2 inch in the holes.

3. Glue or sew netting to the suit or BDU's.

4. Before you sew or glue anything think about it. Will you be in a standing position, a crouching position, or a prone position. I always liked the prone so i will do that.

5. Glue the netting to the back of the suit, on the back of the legs, and on the back of the arms.

6. Now take cloth or burlap about 1/2 inch wide and about 12 inch long.

6. Cut enough cloth or burlap for a arm or so.

7. start at the top of the back.

8. Tie the straps about 2 or 3 maybe even 4 in each loop.

9. Then work your way all the way down to the bottom of the back.

10. then start on the arms. On the `arms start from the soliders out to the wrists.

11. One done with the jacket part do the pants from top down.

12.Once done with the suit jacket and pants i would do a hat.

13. the hat will keep your head hidden when in prone and will add to the suit.

14. glue nettin on the top of the hat and the brim. (Get a olive bonnie hat).

15. Tie the strips of cloth from top to bottom and leave the a little bit shorter in the front so you can see.

16. and that's about it.

Also some tips for sniping if you don't know.

1. Put on your suit and try to sneek up on birds. It's sort of stupid but birds have really good eye sight and if you can get with in 10 or 20 feet of them then you can defidently sneek up on a guy in the field.

2. If you get seen when sniping in the field don't run away. They'll just shot ya' right in the back and laugh. Get down as low as possible and crawl away about 50 feet. If it worked the idiots shooting at you before will shot at your old position. Whoes gonna' be laughing now.

And that's about it. Thanx.

You really don't want a ghillie suit.

Take my word for it.

They hamper and quick movements you're going to have to make. Yes, you are going to HAVE to run Mr. Sniper. With paintball being as close quarters a game as it is, you'll find that the ghillie suit does very little to keep you concealed once you start shooting.

They're hot as heck, heavy, hinder movements, and unless you're VERY good at it, and your suit matches the area that you're playing in EXACTLY, they don't do any good to camoflage you.

Pick up a loose fitting pair of BDU's, a sturdy pair of boots, and you'll be in much better shape.

Ghillies are all but worthless in paintball.

We have purchased a ghillie suit and made a few, if you have the time and patience you can make an awsome one for about 100$ cheaper, here is the best way IMO. You take and old BDU Camo jacket, turn it inside out, this way all of your pockets are now on the "inside", then take "elastic strips" and hot glue gun or sew them to the jacket(this is to put "natural" material on your ghillie) then you take multi-colored burlap(you can buy a bunch and dye it if need be) and cut them into 4-6 in strips, then hot glue gun the strips onto the jacket(be random with the colors and dont over do it) also do this with a "boonie-hat" for your bush hat. Now the next thing you have to do is "weather" your ghillie, this can be done easily with a wire brush, just comb the crap out of it until the burlap are mostly "stringy". I have had numerous successfull kills with such ghillie suits. And yes they hamper your movments somewhat, but a sniper shouldn't be moving much. and if your good and matched your ghillie with the terrain they are the ultimate in camofluage. You do have to practice alot to be good with one and you have to be able to kill with "one" shot, if you do that correctly you "will" stay concealed after you have fired. All movements need to be slow and deliberate. The only people who put these down are either the ones who don't know how to use a ghillie suit effectivly or they are one of the ones I "Sniped" in a game and they had no clue as to where it came from.

Kills? It's a game dude.
And if you're going to 'snipe' in paintball, you're going to get owned awfully quick. Like Reb said, It's a close quarters game, long range shooting is eliminated, and shooting from a concealed position will allow you MAYBE one shot without being detected.

I say quit hiding like a girl and start playing paintball.

Rustic what does yer post have to do with making ghillie suits?? I belive the thread was ""i need to know how to make a ghillie suit". What have you contributed to that other than another FLAME?? Jack! If you don't like sniping or ghillies why even click on this thread? or do you like to make arguments? "Kills" yes, I play MilSim(that means military simulation) that means we simulate our paintball as if the paintballs were real bullets, you get hit in the arm you can't use it, the leg the same, the head or chest you get "killed", or your out, most all "games" that involves shooting anything at someone else whether it be paintball squirt guns or a video game you are going for "kills", and paintball is NOT A CLOSE QUARTERS GAME all the time, yes it can be at times, in speedball or urban settings but in the "woods" there "are" long ranges between you and your opponent, and how can longe range shooting be "eliminated" if all paintball guns shoot the same distance??(exception to flatline which pretty much means you can "snipe" someone before they can actually reach you, ive done it son.)Its actually still being developed if anything, not eliminated. And i don't get owned awfully quick when i snipe, because i do it right, again if you "know what your doing" you "CAN" shoot from a position of concealment and not be seen with more than 1 shot, although it is against all sniper doctrine to shoot from the same spot twice, paintball has an exception. I say to you "quit whining like a girl" and open your eyes, sniping is a "real" thing in paintball, ive done it, ive seen it done, its proven. The only thing you were right about in your post was "its a game dude"......very good, and games are suppose to be fun and boy i have so much fun sniping people who have no clue as to even how to go about the art of it. Thanx.

Let's break this down a bit shall we?

Originally posted by TheOperators TheOperators wrote:

 I belive the thread was ""i need to know how to make a ghillie suit". Yep.

 What have you contributed to that other than another FLAME?? Jack! I didn't flame anyone. I added my .2 cents and you landed on me with both feet.

 If you don't like sniping or ghillies why even click on this thread? Because I still maintain the faint glimmer of hope that someday people will snap out of the hollywood induced sniper-glory phase.

or do you like to make arguments? I love arguments. But this isnt one. This is you tearing me to pieces over a handful of lines.

"Kills" yes, I play MilSim So do I. (that means military simulation) Thanks for the clarification

 that means we simulate our paintball as if the paintballs were real bullets, you get hit in the arm you can't use it, the leg the same, the head or chest you get "killed", or your out, most all "games" that involves shooting anything at someone else whether it be paintball squirt guns or a video game you are going for "kills", Sounds exactly like games I play. We don't use the term 'kills' We're pretty well aware that it's just a game were playing. "Hits" or "Eliminations" serve us just fine.  and paintball is NOT A CLOSE QUARTERS GAME all the time, yes it can be at times, in speedball or urban settings but in the "woods" there "are" long ranges between you and your opponent, 20-50 yards constitutes as a 'long range?' As a sport shooter, I can make a 50 yard shot with my eyes closed. In paintball, that kind of range is considered "Out of range" Most action occurs within a handful of yards of each other if it's done right.

and how can longe range shooting be "eliminated" if all paintball guns shoot the same distance?? (exception to flatline which pretty much means you can "snipe" someone before they can actually reach you, ive done it son Son? just how old ARE you? )Its actually still being developed if anything, not eliminated. And i don't get owned awfully quick when i snipe, because i do it right, again if you "know what your doing" I'm gonna leave this part alone.

 you "CAN" shoot from a position of concealment and not be seen with more than 1 shot, although it is against all sniper doctrine to shoot from the same spot twice, paintball has an exception. I say to you "quit whining like a girl" and open your eyes, sniping is a "real"thing in paintball, ive done it, ive seen it done, its proven. The only thing you were right about in your post was "its a game dude"

I'm going to ignore that above paragraph because it reminds me too much of the 12 year olds in the New player forum who have seen too many movies.

......very good, and games are suppose to be fun and boy i have so much fun sniping people who have no clue as to even how to go about the art of it. Thanx. Yeah, sniping is an art. I agree here. I just don't know anyone that can employ the necessary tactics on the paintball field. It's too involved, too technical for a recreational game like paintball or milsim.

Matt

I don't want to get this thread locked. If you'd care to continue this, you can reach me via PM.

If the guy wants to make a ghillie suit, go for it, but 9 out of 10 people that I know give up their endeavor after a few games.
Me included. 5 years ago I made one and crawled around through the brush. I spent way too much time all by myself as the pace of the game was far ahead of my belly crawling. I shed the suit, and kept pace with everyone else, and have become so much better a player.

Most of older guys will agree with me on this one. I wish you both luck.
