Okay so i live in MI and am having a rough time deciding how to make my ghillie.

The challenge for me is not the actual practice but the colors to use this picture is very close to my woods its not actually mine but it looks similar.

I don't know how the local Mil Sim fields are but from almost every woods ive been in i assume they'll be similar to this, so what colors should i be putting in the ghillie?

Thanks for any and all input!

I agree with the above posts.
keep it light browns,just buy some hessian sand bags and cut them into strips.
I would dye a little, light green and a little slightly darker brown,but you need to watch the brown as it tends to go slightly redish and leave 90% the natural hessian colour.
If you can get ahold of one in the US i would advise buying a webtex or atkis concealment vest, as its nice and light and can be taken on off easily,plus is just worn over your combats. Then just make a set of ghillie trousers as well.

I looked into the Concealment vests the webtex I could find but not the atkis. I don't think those would work very well just due to my area and a major lack of on the ground foliage.
The most that I have is moss, poison ivy, and black berry bushes, which in case you don't have any around you there pickers, so not many things id want to put on my body. Im thinking the tan will have to do and make it more wider strips than thin threads.
Right now my plan is to buy a military flightsuit and attach a 1x1 net to the back. I plan on making another low temp suit being just a net shirt with jute and burlap.

Has anyone tried somthing like these two? how do they work? Never mind for the netting only i just watched fuzzy's video and see that it works great I still feel like it will be a bit too much green for the feild im on. But has anyone done a full ghillie with a flight suit?
