    Thanx! You're right - the whole thing is about how it looks when weared. These are maybe not the best photos but I think it turned out nice - I'll remember to take some good shots on a SW session which will be held at the end of September. Now it looks kinda this way: And not the best shot but this is the only one that shows back of the belt:

    Whoah, haven't been here for a while Just want to let you know that I almost finished my new harness straps and belt with pouches and holster. Still need to put it altogether but think it looks quite well: The smallest piece is an armband - I've got a bad bruise on my arm and I need to cover it before my next event (that is, this Saturday) - unfortunately still do not have any good paint to cover it (as well as my tattoo ) so I thought it will do :] I'd also like to add a piece of hook to hang my lightsaber, which I've bought last year - this is Leia's thingie, with which Mara killed Joruus C'baoth and Luke's clone in TLC comic - quite accurate replica, I think (but it's a pity that it's bit heavy. I'd love to add a blade but seems it's impossible :/): What do you think?

    What is this for a factory ? (jumpsuit) Uhm, I'm not sure if I understand your question right (probably my English isn't good enough ). You ask about the fabric or maybe how the jumpsuit was made? I'm probably the one that can answer your question as these are my legs on the photo above . The fabric is metallic lycra - I bought the ready catsuit (so called zentai suit) and then remade it a bit. Still I'm looking forward to have new jumpsuit sewed as the old one looks bit worn-out :]

    Jumpsuit fabric

    Well, thank you for your advice! I'm thinkink of getting some of each one of those and just try which works best.

    Jumpsuit fabric

    I've decided to write here and not to create a new topic cause I have quite similar problem: I need new jumpsuit for my Mara as two old ones are quite weathered (I've bought ready catsuits and just added some piping and padding but the fabric occured to be of poor quality... it was some kind of lycra with metallic coating). As in Poland it's difficult to get the right fabric I'll try to get some via ebay and here's my question: is it better to get 4 way stretch vinyl (as here: http://cgi.ebay.com/BLACK-STRETCH-VINYL ... 45f3a6f066 Well, they say that it's for upholstery but for me looks quite good. The only thing I'm afraid of is if it's not too thick or stiff.) or maybe "wet look foil 4 way stretch lycra" (like here: http://cgi.ebay.com/New-black-wet-look- ... 414c88e4c7). I've done some research and I think that this "wet look" lycra looks good - it's not too shiny. I've found also another goodlooking "wet" lycra but it's only 2 way stretch: http://cgi.ebay.com/Black-wet-look-stre ... 5d2cd43325 so I pressume that it's better to have more stretchy fabric... What do you think? What would those of you who have some experience with jumpsuits sewing recommend? I'd be very grateful for some advice

    As it concerns jumpsuit, you may try some black zentai catsuit and modify it on your own - cut off spare parts, add piping and thigh padding. As far as I know it's simplier than sew it from a scratch. I've bought one made of metallic lycra and it looks quite good - not very shiny and has a good stretching quality.

    Yup, it's from The Last Command graphic novel . There are jus a few pics on which you can see some details of these shinguards. You may also see Mara wearing them in two other parts of the Zahn's comic trilogy, but they are quite different and I think these in tLC series are most easy to do... Here you have some pics that I've found. It's a pity but there's no better refs in this comic book Wish you good luck - it's always good to see piece of work like that instead of bought hockey shinguards or sth like that .

    Think you're right although I cannot find that note :/ Instead of that I found other way to hide the tattoo - use some kind of armband, the one Mara wears on that pic Some people actually believe that Mara was involved in some Mandalorian affairs. Personally not me but... it still could be an explanation Well, some day for sure Mara's story will be explored and surely we'll know everything about her origin... and I really don't know if I'd like to

    Gosh Pam, how could you say things like that? Everyone can tell you the same: you look gorgeous in your Mara and you're best Mara ever! I'd like to have your figure! And your jumpsuit! And I'm sure you don't have to be afraid that anyone could take your place as perfect Mara . I was wondering if I should cover it with some make up but no one told me that it's obligatory, so for the time being I do not use any means to hide it... but I think that I should as I know that it just don't look right :] Sakara told me about some ways to cover tattoos so I must buy and try them on my own soon Thanks

    Thanks! We've done something like that but still I think your shin guards look better a lot, like one piece of plastic, whereas on mine the edge that overlaps another is visible... But most important thing guards look alright and are very comfortable I'd also like to ask you about pads under your shin guards and knee pads. Do you use them for protection or were they intended just to be a part of the costume, let say "decorative"? They look very well for me and I'm wondering if I could make something similar. If you could give away the secret, did you use ready protector pads or did you make them yourself? Apart of that allow me to express my admiration for all work you've done to create your costumes. I'm really, really impressed and grateful for your all your guidelines and references for Mara's costume. They were really helpful. We had ofcourse some ideas and conceptions how to make some parts of my costume but without your instructions I think it wouldn't went so well I found some photos from the process of making my shinguards. Here they are: Computer 3D model Plastic tower Putting the putty Sanded Tomorrow I'm gonna wear my complete costume for the first time so after this weekend I'll put some photos

    Uff, at last managed to vacuform my shinguards! During this week we need to invent how to put them together, most likely we use velcro. Here are some photos: Don't know why (all parts were made from the same sheet of plastic) there is small difference between colour of guards: two of them are bit lighter than others But I hope it isn't very visible...

    You’re right, I forgot that it’s “good” Mara’s sabre :/ I think I leave the sabre by now and maybe later think of building this http://www.plasmainfusion.com/mara%20jade1.jpg hilt. I like it's design very much As a matter of fact the method doesn’t work so well Shin guards look alright but plastic strips we used were so thin that even under few layers of putty got warm from the heated sheet of plastic during vacuforming and started to deform and subsided a bit... So the moulds we built are “disposable” rather :] I think we’ll try to make casts from vacuformed guards again. Hey! I’m impressed! Where did you learn Polish? Thank you very much for your kind words On these photos my hair is curled bit but my natural hair is just wavy. During last weekend of March we plan to visit Polish convention in Poznan and I think I'll be able to present my finished costume there. I take and sent some photos with my membership request then Thank u once again I think stndards that Pam has set are at very high level. It’s good but still it’s so hard to equal to Pam’s costume! I think she’s perfect as Mara and her costume is best Mara’s costume ever! It’s made sooo proffessional and looks great! She’s in my opinion even better Mara than Shannon, really
