Okay, I've *actually* got a plan to get my SL designation for real this time.
I'm building Lana Beniko from SWTOR: KOTFE for my SL designation, and my third Legion costume (and my excuse for a second lightsaber...). She's a fairly rare costume in the Legion, being only approvable for about a year or so (and to the best of my knowledge, I'd be the first Canadian Lana!), but I LOVE her design and her character.
I'll be getting her wig from Arda Wigs, and depending how poorly my eyes react to contacts (I've never worn them, but my eyes tend to react badly to having things in them so idk what my level of success will be there) I've got a few options for where to find those. I'm planning on building her armoured parts out of either Worbla or Sintra- I might just do Worbla since I have it handy at my house. (All else fails, I'll get a friend to 3D print the armour for me. I might also talk to him about the lightsaber hilt...). I've got a fairly good idea of what type of boots I'll need for her as well (I am NOT using my officer boots for this!), and finding her turtleneck tunic and pants shouldn't be hard.
I've heard a recommendation for using cotton canvas as the fabric of choice for the soft parts. Given that my computer graphics are osik (I'm happy if I can play on minimum graphics!), I can't really get too many details on my PC of her fabric textures. Is the cotton canvas a sound idea, or should I be looking at other options?
Also, I'm eyeballing this for her outer tunic pattern: http://www.ebay.com/...vwAAOSwVm5Y-nQc Will this be acceptable (obvs with modified sleeves), or should I look for something that doesn't look like it calls for darts? Or do you think that with her tabards and chest armour, the darts won't matter?
Also also, does anyone have a pattern for gloves that I can beg off of you, or tips? I filled up my swear jar already making Atton Rand's gloves and would rather not repeat that experience.
Thank you! ^.^
