So, here we are again and I here myself screaming the words: WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF!?! WHAT HAVE I GOT MYSELF INTO? 

Well. I did the CRL searches and I know there are 2 other Mara Jade 501st approvable costumes out there. Arica and Black Nebula. So instead of being nearly naked as Arica, I am going full gowns and leather with Black Nebula

So break down time! What have I got that I can use? What do I need to ask Phantom (Redback Garrison GML) about and what the hell did I get myself into... and more over, another Flagship costume to finish before Dreamworld (major gathering of 501st in Australia) next year  aaaah.gif

 

Red Hair:

SO! I have this sorted. Same wig as my black body suit. Good-o

Scarf and Dress Material's:

Maroon! I do love that colour. Coming from Queensland and all, as with the state of origin happening at the moment (sport, NRL, state vs state... bragging rights for 1yr)! best! I am going to head to Spotlight. I have two costumes that need this colour material. It will be a non stretch material. Shhh secret 2nd costume... Tach doesn't know

Scarf with have a hat brim made out of a tan/orange leather - means a visit to Mac Lace in Capalaba again

Dress will gave a black torso, sleeves and skirts attached to the black torso are maroon in colour. Skirt has 4 panels. Spilt down the front, sides and back. woo! Fun... NOT! and thankfully the sleeves are wide and not fitted. I hate fitted non-stretch costumes

 

Undersuit:

Steel Grey Body Suit, with long sleeves. Easy. Done. Can do in my sleep.

 

Leather Vest and Shoulder Epaulettes

Again. Same leather as the brim on the scarf. All matchy matchy and such.  Epaulettes will require some skills I need to work on. This being custom bias and piping... again. Woo. Also some beading.

 

Black Vest 

Layers. Many layers! Like an Onion. Gonna die in this. It is a bolero length, doesn't close and made of a very deep black, almost velvet in type from looking on the CRL.

 

Boots

grey/brown?!? WHAT. So I buy some dark grey boots and get some tan/brown polish and give some TLC? Thoughts? May need to ask TFE (you guys) and Phantom about this or do I use the same ones as my black body suit?

Lightsaber:

I am set with the purple saber thanks to Tachyon (best boyfriend and also 501st member)! Best christmas pressie from the best boyfriend a girl/star wars fan could ask for! Shhh! I didn't tell you that :P

I will update this thread with more info and things I make as they happen! I am pretty excited to start something new again! I know Black Bodysuit (BB) Mara will be getting a cape and clasp! Always having fun with Mara. Next will be Arica when Black Nebula (BN) Mara is done... and other TFE costume, Visas Marr, is also happening. So, both hopefully done before Dreamworld and maybe one done before OZCC Brisbane (major convention in Queensland, Australia) this year!

 

Wish me luck!

So I found some boots. I have to change them as my BB Mara boots won't cut it. Brown Grey is a hard colour to get so I am getting brown boots and polishing to the right colour with black polish. Buckle at top will be removed. Just running this style of boot by Terry and my GML 😍

Sewing machine is also back in action after killing it with a small leather sew I did recently! TFE patch added to my shirt now!
