After Nightsister comes 7th sister

15 posts in this topic

Hej!
It´ has been a long time ago that I finished my Nightsister Naa'leth costume and got it approved. In the meanwhile I have worked on a Galactic Marine and finished it successful.
So it was time for a new costume and I was not able to choose ... should I go with a Biker Scout or some other Clone or be back at TFE with a new costume from Rebels?

My boyfriend took it from me and in summer 2017 I had the BBB-Day (Big Brown Box-Day) :grin:

But I could not start because of frozen shoulder syndrom - I could not use me right arm. Very painful and very exhausting and it took a very, very long time to heal.
I had to wait until this years june, but as you all know there are a lot of researches to do at the beginning and that is what I started with. Even though I could not use
my hands I could use my eyes!!

Next steps were to decide making all soft parts by myself or should I let it designed by a dressmaker?
If you guys take a look at etsy you may understand why I accept the challenge to sew the jacket and pants on my own using some normal patterns  and modulate them.

For the white stripes I used transfer sheets you can iron on. The cogs are merch we can get from someone in our garrison :wink:

Same I did with the pants:

The knee details are stitched by hands also the red stripes at both sides.

Funniest things were the gloves :-D

I have never sew gloves! Youtube was very helpful. It is very simple! That is how it looks to create them:

Just take the different coloured fabric and add an elastic strap.

Chest, Back and undarm armor were painted already, also the helmet.

I use velcro to get chest and back together and the "sleeves" as well.

The underarm armor consists of two halfs connected by magnets.

Shoes and chaps you can find as equipment for horse riding :wink:
Just add the red stripes by using spray paint.
I cut the chaps off to get them into the right size. They have got elastics at the back so they fit tight.
You can use velcro as well to stick the edges at the bottom to the shoes instead of elastic straps round the sole.
You can see the loop tape at the elastic part on the shoe shown below.
It was important to me to create the arc at the instep.

Sewing the neckseal was a little bit tricky, but I sew the neckseal for the Nightsister... not so different.
For rebuilding the linings I stitched with a thicker yarn.

I can remove the facemask from the helmet. Great!  ... I thought! I don't really like how it looks like. So my neckseal has the right shape at the cheeks but nobody will see it :?

But here is my helmet (no - no lighting)

Here is my belt - it does not exactly fit like the original (I am to short...:roll:), but I think it is okay.

The two leather stripes are fitted together by... velcro (exactly :P)
