I bought a pair of ultralight pants and shirt, I had an older but in good condition broadsword vest and an older v-force vantage mask.
I used camo systems ghillie material (just like specops material but cheaper by the square foot) cut into 6X6 to 8X8 inch squares. You can get big pieces of this from cabelas or bass pro shoppes.
I attached it to the pants, and shirt sleeves only (the vest covers the center of the shirt no sense in waisitng ghillie that is going to be covered) using small zip ties. Similar to the directions on the action ghillie kit.
I bought the action ghillie head cover and attached it to the mask the same way and ghillied it as well.
I used the Mesh base of the broadsword vest to attach ghillie to that as well, but as I did it I left some openings so that I could get to the pockets. On the back I got my Mother-in-law to sew 2 attachment points to each of the pod straps so that they were ghillied independentally and I could access them one at a time.
I'm at work and don't have pictures right now but will add pictures tonight. Hope this helps.
If you are not a fan of the action ghillie material and prefer Jute the zip ties can serve the same purpose for the jute as well. I find the action ghillie is lighter and more breathable.

First the pants. You can see how my knee pad slips under the ghillie
Number of downloads: 35
Next the Shirt. It is kind of hard to see due to the mossy oak pattern on the shirt but only the sleeves are ghillied. (Don't wear the shirt alone. You will look like Jim Carey singing "Cuban Pete" in the Mask)
Number of downloads: 30
Now the Vest. In the front picture I used the pods so that you can see that you can still access the pockets under the ghillie.
Number of downloads: 30
On the back you can see that each pod strap is individually ghillied
Number of downloads: 31
Finally the mask. Just an old v-force vantage
Number of downloads: 22
Now put it all together and you get this: I do have gloves too I just didn't put them on.
(I know I hate the Mirror self portrait too but if I woke up my wife to take my picture in my ghillie suite.............well lets just say thay any married guy out there knows better than that)
Number of downloads: 24
I hope this elaborates on my last post.

Oh, BTW I agree with the camera-mirror picture. Haha can't have the woman angry.
If anyone else out there has more info or an opinion, please feel free to add.

I also have a SpecialOps Battle Belt, but it doesnít have freaking D ring attachments so a harness for that canít happen.
On the first quoted sniper vest comment: true. It was alot like the recon vest, all green mesh base w/ zip up front & mesh pockets. They also sold a number of pod/accessory pouches made of mesh that you could zip-tie to the vest & then attach all your ghillie to. MO could do something like that for you again on a custom basis.
If you don't know about cheaperthandirt.com, they have a lot of great stuff & most of it really is cheaper than dirt. This item from them might be worth checking out for use as a base. You could zip-tie your ghillie to the webbing. Although... the Recon from SO is being discontinued so it's on sale right now. It comes w/ a number of pockets for the same price as the ctd one, but obviously isn't as customizable. Of course, if you are handy w/ a needle & thread you could remove/relocate whatever you wanted on it.
As for D-rings on the SO belt - try some T-ring adapters: LINK. Just mount them aiming up. I don't know how much weight they would hold because all the weight is transferred on the pals webbing rather than the d-rings being sewed to the body of the belt. But it may be worth considering.
Good luck w/ the build, keep us updated.
You bought the brand, not my allegiance.
