Advice on Making custom ghillie

First off My total budget is $85, I plan to use this in the prone position.
Also I'm in NC (North Carolina) so I'm leaning towards a all green(different shades) ghillie. Opinion on this?

I want to make stalker/viper style ghillie so the shoulders, arms, back of the jacket/pants, and the whole top hat. (will do the hat latter due to money)
How can I cover my neck.
I plan to add netting to the whole thing my just sewing it into the clothes.
I am buying synthetic ghillie thread.
Colors- dark green X1, green X1
Base-Woodland jacket/pants/boonie hat

I don't know where you play in NC, but every field here I've played at consists of a healthy serving of pine needles and dead leaves, with some green tossed in. A whole green suit would stick out pretty badly in a prone position in most situations. Also, don't by pre-dyed jute, dye your own so you can tailor it for your AO.

First Thanks for a reply and advice!!
can you link me to soem synthetic that isnt pre dyed?
also I play at the field where fulda gap is, and around my person house there is no pines(literally none). Its all hard woods. Sorry for not mentioning earlier and sorry for not knowing the field name.
Also when I get the money I do plan to add gray or light olive

If you're only going to be using it in the prone position, I would recommend buying a Ghillie blanket. The problem with big ghillie suits is that the strings snap easily, and unless you're going to be able to attach them well, I would use the 85 bucks on a pre made suit

That looks good. How long are your matches? 30m? Would you be changing in and out of it?

Thank you for helping me!
When I play at my house/local field the matches are usually 30-40m (depending on the mode)I am buying this for use at longer milsim style games.(I'm my squads dmr/sniper)

I would most likely put it on and leave it on.
Is there any way for me to wear a gopro on my head?

Your best choice for a go pro would be to strap it to your chest or forehead. You *might* be Able to find stuff online about it. The type of ghillie suit would depend on how frequently you move. Do you stay in one spot and camp or do you move frequently ?

Ok thanks I figured I'd use the head mount thing.

I usually stay still for around 10-15min, maybe longer depending on enemy movements,that's if I'm alone. if I'm with a squad I'm always moving. (Very rarely am I still for More than 3min)
Hats why I wanted the stalker. Figured less coverage of me would also help with overheating issues.

If you'll be moving that often with a squad, yet switch to more static roles often, a Cobra hood or Viper hood with a backdrape is hands down your best bet. Mesh= Ventilation, so much less overheating, and with the backdrape you'll get a significant amount of coverage.

Is the backdrape the same as the blanket?
One ? On the poncho. I wear an adult medium shirt and pants is 32x32s would the poncho be way to big for me?

A backdrape is not the same as a blanket. https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com...2afa9abd15.jpg
This is a viper hood with a backdrape attached. Loads of flexibility with this setup.

Heres a Cobra ghillie. This one has a little bit less flexibility since the back is permanent, but the back is also a bit more compact. Keep in mind, if you go with a viper hood, the backdrape can always be made smaller. A full on blanket is about as far from a functional setup as you can get. It's literally a massive blanket covered in twine, burlap, and vegetation. If you have to move, you have to use your hands to carry the whole thing, taking away from valuable hand tasks, like firing your weapon. If you're going to be stationary from such a time that a blanket would become useful for concealing movement underneath, just build a hide. The hide would blend so much better than any blanket you made or bought.

With the Cobra or Viper system, you get a massive amount of flexibility in terms of how and when you apply the system, and you'll still get a significant amount of concealment if you use a backdrape (Viper). The main difference from this and a full poncho style, is the poncho covers much more of your front than a Viper/Cobra. There's very little use for the massive front garnish on a poncho besides irritating you, as it impedes access to gear and will make crawling a very unenjoyable task.

I'm very interested in the viper, but I cannot not find one for sale that's under $85.
