Fuzz just left for military college!

You should be able to get some form of net for somewhere between $10 and $30, and some shoe goo for $5-$7 a tube (you'll probably need one, but maybe two). Burlap sacks can be gotten for dirt cheap, or free if you're lucky, and they sell burlap for $7 a yard here, and I used about three yards for my crawl suit. You can use almost anything durable as a base, but just make sure it's a natural earthy color. I can almost guarantee that after a while, if you stick with sniping you'll want to make your own ghille, so why not start now! If you're thrifty, you can definitely make a ghillie suit for around $70. I encourage you to try it out, as it feels so much better when you are concealed in something you made.

Seriously Stealth, make your own! The pride of ownership is well worth it. I made a tracker style ghillie (from scratch). I saved over half the cost by not having to make a full crawl suit, and the sweet thing is, when it's hot, I am not stuck with a warm BDU or Nomex Flight Suit, I can wear mine with a camo t-shirt as the base. When it's cold, I can wear it over a sweater and a 3 season jacket. I even made covers for the backs of my legs with the leftovers. I tie them into grommets in the back of my pants, or zip tie them if I am lazy. So now I have full (back) coverage, including a removable hood with a veil stitched in.

Go look at my photo album. Total price, about $55.00.

You will save enough to make two, one more green for spring, one more brown/tan for fall.

Enjoy!

Instead of having to spend a lot of time dying your suit each colour, I dyed the whole suit a base colour and then used spray paints. Because you don't get solid colours on the jute it helps break up your outline.

As I see, many people recommend to use lighter base colors.
Is that mean it will be good to use desert color BDU or we talking about jute only?

When people recommend lighter base colors, they mean the jute. Get the color BDU that best suits your environment.

I'm asking because I do have set of DCU BDU. It's collecting dust in closet right now...
So I planned to use it for making ghillie suit. But my area is not desert for sure so I have doubts...

there isnt really much point in having a desert uniform if you play in a green woodland environment. Judging by this pic of Estonia, DCU wouldn't be very good.

Better off getting a new uniform for as cheaply as possible in a woodland pattern such as US Woodland, UK DPM, ATACS FG, MARPAT, CADPAT, AOR2 etc.

This was on the second page in the concealment category, and if I looked deeper, I'm sure I would find more. Any strong fish net will do. As for dye, go to your local crafts store.
