Mara Jade - finally getting started..

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

from the beginning, I was planning to make a Mara Jade costume. As I am an absolut beginner in making costumes, I find myself approved as Crewman, TIE Reserve and Staff Officer. And now it is time to restart with Mara!

 

Goggles: I found these on Ebay, will they be approvable? I add a Mara reference picture.

These are the belt and the harness. The color should match that of the 501st crl. It turns out darker on the picture. My boots will be the same as for the Officer costume.

PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE

 

I am so happy - having found the perfect fabric for my bodysuit. Will commission the suit to my seamstress soon! Only looking for a good sewing pattern to give to her along with the fabric.

Additionally I worked on the Belt, the cape and the cape buckle, which I did myself. Was the very first time for me and I am very proud of the result. It still needs some smoothing and coloring... The silver cape buckle in the picture is not mine. I took it as a model for my work. The left picture was taken for my Mara Jade Searm War version, which I did decide to not transmit to the Rebel Legion after all...

I highly recommend Yaya Han's pattern. Having tried numerous, it's the only one that was both flattering and easy to work with. I talk about how I altered it here: http://withoutastitchon.blogspot.ie/2016/05/mara-jades-bodysuit.html

 

 

 

Thank you Eliste! That helps me a lot!

I found these knee guards. Are they approvable for Mara?

Thanks in advance for your comments.

(I do not know, why it gets turned around when I add it here. Please excuse)

I think the knee guards look ok, although depending on what version you want to do, it may be better to look for the shin/knee guards together so they look cohesive. Also I think most people doing the decipher have found a combination with both knee and shin guards together so I'd check on what you want t o do with your shin guards before purchasing these.
