  1. The Second Sister, is another Inquisitor who first showed up in Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith 19 and will be one of the antagonists in the upcoming Fallen Order video game. https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Second_Sister I am going to be working toward an initial build with the limited information we currently have for the game's release on Nov 15, 2019. I'm sure a number of things will need to change once we are able to work on a CRL after the game's release but I would like to have this initial build done by Halloween. Since I was originally going to build a Seventh Sister, I have fabric from the build that I'll be using here instead. I also recently purchased additional fabric to make the cape. 3D printer files are available for the hard parts (on Etsy), so I'm using these for the initial build. So far I have the helmet, shoulder armor, bracers (from my seventh sister build), belt buckle, and saber hilt circle (from Seventh Sister). I will modify the hilt as I know it is not the same as the Seventh Sister, but detailed pictures are not yet available. From what I can tell, it looks more aligned with the Grand Inquisitor's hilt. Attached is a picture of my helmet with everything glued together. I had to split it up so much due to the size of my printer so I'm going to have A LOT of post-processing work to do on it. Next step: fill and sand everything over the next couple of weeks.
  2. I decided to go with a semi-modified Rev-n from Vader's Vault. I requested the Brawler end instead of the standard one that comes with a stock Rev-n saber. Ultrasaber also has a saber called the 'Shock' that has an Old Republic look to it, but it is a larger saber than the Rev-n.
  3. I have an Ultrasaber Shock, and recently upgraded to a Vader's Vault Rev-n. They both have a Revan/Old Republic look to them. These were the closest that I could find for something that was not custom made. For the Rev-n, I changed out the pommel to something that was closer to the style of the Shock's pommel. You can see my Vader's Vault saber here in the last post:
  4. I like this also.
  5. Not a problem. Here are a few photos.
  6. They are two different LEDs. When I ordered it, I selected the option where you can easily swap out the led part to whatever color you want. There is a clip on the led wires that let you do this. It is a bit hard to explain, but I can take a picture if that would be helpful.
  7. Just throwing this out there but I have a Ultra Saber Shock (with sound) that has both red and purple leds that can be swapped out that I'm going to be selling since I'm upgrading to a different saber. I would like it to go to a good home.
  8. 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!
  9. I my census profile showed the same thing. My profile is: https://www.501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=25297
  10. Requesting 501st and Detachment Access. SL-72172 https://www.501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=25297 Thanks!
  11. I added more photos to my album for my 501st submission. Now I wait to see what I may need to change. Album: https://www.flickr.com/gp/jenmcnitt/3X6XD8
  12. My Treya is fairly close to being complete now! My first trial run for the costume was at Star Wars Celebration and I have a few things to tweak after that event. I received several good comments from others who attended the convention though. I'll post more pictures once I have my submission pictures ready. https://flic.kr/p/TNtVjE
  13. I am having some difficulty finding the right kind of boots so far. The boots I've found so far in the right style are mens, but they are too large. I wear a size 7.5 womens. Does anyone have a source suggestion? Thanks!
  14. I've started my investigation on how to build the various items for this costume, and I have a couple of questions that will help me get started: Is there a pattern that you recommend to start with for her gown? It looks fairly straightforward other than for the folds at the shoulders. I usually like to start with a pattern that I can adapt when possible though. What wig source have others used? Here is one option that I've considered: https://arda-wigs.com/shop/le-tigre-classic/ Should I go with the white or silver wig color? I've been looking into getting a saber from Ultra Sabers. Would the 'Shock' hilt be appropriate for her? http://www.ultrasabers.com/product-p/stunt-shock.htm It seems that it is similar to the 'KOTOR II' style, but I wanted to get your opinions. For the hair bands, am I assuming correctly that the band size height is what should change from top to bottom band? What type of closure have you found works the best for the black wide belt? I think that is it for now. Thank you!
  15. Greetings! My name is Jen, and I am working toward creating a couple costumes to join the Central Garrison. I would like to make both the Darth Traya and Visas Marr costumes with a goal of getting them 501st approved. I have a couple other friends who are members of the 501st and have been inspired by the work they do. I've been making costumes for a number of years, but these will be my first Star Wars specific costumes. In often lean toward making costumes based on video game characters so these two initially interested me. My goal is to have at least one done by Celebration next year if not both.
