    Azrayel's Revan Build

    Finally getting back to my Revan, i have most of the WA gear, save i bought a different Mask and today im working on Boots. Got harnesses removed, new straps cut and glued into place and cured well. Been working on insoles to make them fit well and wearable in relatively comfort. Now... i KNOW ive seen weathering info SOMEWHERE but im striking out in finding the posts today so how do you weather them to get the grey look finish? I was thinking there was something with white shoe polish, and i was debating if mixing in a SMALL amount of Rub n Buff silver JUST to give a slight bit of metallic look would work? I tried my ideas on a scrap piece of leather and got more color than i expected and its not washing out well. SO.. suggestions, ideas .. how have others done this? And do these look good < other than the weathering> ? http://

    Revan Boot Question

    I didn’t get them yet. I had a lot of 501st Kylos recommend him. I sent all my measurements, so I’m hoping it fits like a glove. I’ll report back when I get them. His turnaround time is pretty long from what I hear. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Revan Boot Question

    I didn’t like the fit of the boot. It felt like wearing flip flops. I ended up spending a little extra money and going with Gio with CrowProps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Revan Boot Question

    Did you buy this boots? I’m also thinking about same from amazon, but my concern is sizing... there is also black/light gray version, which looks even better for revan https://www.amazon.com/RideTecs-Stonewash-Harness-Mens-Stonewash-Black/dp/B06VVC2K6C/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_2?keywords=Ride+tec+stonewashed&qid=1552738875&s=gateway&sr=8-2-fkmrnull

    Visas Marr WIP

    Hello Welcome to our forum - I have see a couple of Visas Marr costumes from this vendor and sadly there are some problems regarding it. First, as Blane already stated, the sleeves are not long nor open enough, the grey stripes on the gloves are to dark, the veil is also not formed right - the forhead piece is to high. The pinwheel pattern looks odd, as if the paint has smeared out and it is to dark in color. If you look at one of the other buyers of this costume, it does nok look as the one on the sale post, which is made several years ago, when the owner was approved in the RL + I know of one, who has bought one from her last year, that is also made in a different way. As you can see on this pic (other buyer), the veil is off - it should lay flat and not have the fold around the face, the pinwheel pattern is different, the sleeves on this one seams to be too open/big, gloves has different silver lines + does not fit at all. If you can get her to make the sleeves on the innerdress (as on the pic in the sale thread) longer and a bit more open, that would work + the veil needs to get the forhead made smaller, it is to high. The outerdress - well, if the pattern can be more sharp in the lines + in a bit lighter grey color, that could work. Perhaps you can ask her about these things and see, if she is willing to redo the pieces ? http://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:SL_marr_unseen

    So have been lucky and unlucky. Unlucky, as the printed material has arrived and so does not match anything that I`ve got. So another order and another wait of 1.5 months And lucky... found a beautiful dark brown cotton material, which should do for the skirt. And to make things even better, I`ve also found the right sewing patterns for both skirt and top. I have set myself a time limit... lets see if I can keep it.

    Visas Marr WIP

    Welcome to the forums, and good luck on your costume. I personally don't know of any vendors for Visas Marr, but I know there are others on here that will. At first glance that costume doesn't look too bad, however there are a couple of things I noticed. The sleeves on the costume don't look long enough, or have a large enough opening for draping. The veil also looks a little off, like it conforms to the person face too much, but that might just be the way the person was wearing it. Just a few of my observations, but I'm sure our Visas experts can go into more depth.

    Visas Marr WIP

    Hello all. I do not have anything to post as far as progress or pictures. If I'm being honest the idea of trying to make another costume sounds kinda daunting. I have spent upwards of 6 years on making a mando and due to my lack of sewing ability and general lack of craftiness, as well as the fact that in the middle of Wyoming the nearest OM to help me is an hour away (for mercs or 501st). That being said, I fully intend to simply buy my costumes and just work on fixing little details as the pieces come in. I am not sure if there is a list of trusted vendors anywhere, but I did find a vendor on Etsy (linked below) by the name of "costumesbyrose" who is selling a full Visas (minus the boots) for only $330. I was wondering if anyone knew anything good, bad, or otherwise about this vendor? Or if people could sort of give it a once over and give thoughts on if her work seems up to CRL standards? https://www.etsy.com/listing/483478819/custom-visas-marr-costume?ga_order=most_relevant&amp;ga_search_type=all&amp;ga_view_type=gallery&amp;ga_search_query=visas+marr&amp;ref=sr_gallery-1-1&amp;organic_search_click=1
  23. Hello everyone! My name is Tori and I am from the frozen wasteland of Wyoming. This lands me in the Mountain Garrison who I have been trooping with for like 3 years because I have been working on a kit for the mandalorian mercs for like 5 years, but have decided to put that on the back burner indefinitely for personal reasons. As far as the costume I want to work on, I am torn between starting with Visas Marr or Mara Jade. I want to join the 501st because on top of just loving the trooping I've already done as an unofficial member of the mercs, I want to be more involved and I also like the idea of not just having my mando, but being able to put smiles on peoples' faces while being the same characters that made me happy and inspired me growing up. Plus I'm basically the only (perspective) Mando for like 70 miles in any direction but there is a great 501st community in Wyoming and I love the community aspect of these groups, so not being a lone wolf sounds nice.

    Hello from a nerdy noob!

    Welcome friend! We know a few Aphras that can help you. A good place to start would be here where Nina pointed out, and also request access to the ladies of the legions fb. Theres a lot of good costumers there as well that can assist you in finding someone or at least giving you guidelines to follow if you end up doing things yourself or you need specific details. Hope you can join us soon!
