M's Seventh Sister WIP

Recommended Posts

Getting ready to pull the trigger to start a Seventh Sister costume. But not entirely sure where to start. I've read through the posts and build threads here and checked out the CRL, knowing the issues with it after all the reading. My main source of angst at the moment is where to acquire the hard parts. We've contacted JawaChopShop about their kit but it doesn't include a helmet. Atlis Armory offers a helmet but they haven't responded to messages. I founf that Do3d offers files to 3D print the pieces but they are also known for junk files. SO what are the options to pursue that maybe we haven't found yet? We have a Taz6 3D printer to be able to print if files are available but has understand the sometimes fragile nature to 3D prints. 

Any help would be appreciated also in locating a pattern for sewing the soft goods. 

Thanks!

In our for sale section, there were some on going kits being offered.

Best to get some replies back from some of our 7th sisters on this matter.

After looking for patterns I quit. Was too complicated for me. So grabbed an old dress I had in the closet and modified it to make the jacket. Then I lined it. The fitted pants were from Wal-Mart and did match the jacket's fabric. So I just had to add the red on the sides on the legs. I was so nervous to mess up but it came out so nice! The neck seal was made in leatherette. Did pattern with clear wrap and tape around my neck and then I transfer to fabric, making sure did the folds in the sewing machine. To tell u the truth the pain was to make the gloves. I used this tutorial and learned after many mistakes I needed to use 2 was strech fabric, no the leftover material I had in the cosplay room lol. Here is tutorial for gloves

Well we ordered the armor pieces from JawaChopShop today. He says it will take a week to produce and ship out. So should have that in a couple weeks. Also purchased the helmet file from ... https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/game/helmet-seven-sisters-star-wars

I understand this will need some modification once it is printed. Can anyone helps us by pointing out what exactly needs changed?

wilson5710 has been making progress on the helmet. He plans to remodel the mask portion of the print file so that it is more accurate.

Would you mind us using this for the TFE page? I feel like this needs to be shared with the world.

What was wrong with the stl files?  I believe I have the same ones but have not started printing yet.

What layer height are you using?  Are you printing in PLA?

Thanks!
