    A natural weave fabric that drapes well - most uses silk, I used a silkblend that I found, that gave me the look for the draping and a different fabric for the sleeves to give it the right look.

    When I started out with costumes back in 2012, I hadn´t done much sewing myself - and see me now For my Nihilus COFT I used a basic shirt pattern and made mods for the cross over for the tunics - you can also use one of your shirts to lay on the fabric and cut after that. The skirts are easy, the innerskirt is done with an elastic at the waist, just pull the fabric around you and take more fabric to get the voluminous appearance, remember the split. Same with the outer skirt The cape - I measured myself from top to floor, added about 30 cm more and drapped it for the right fit, before I made the knot, I sewed in snaps at the shoulders to hold the cape behind the shoulders. The obi - not hard either, take your meassurements at the waist and remember to add on for the closure, I use velcro for that. Same with the belt, I bought two leather pieces and 8 chicago screws + added velcro for the closure. WA makes some really nice costumes, but I prefer to save money and do as much as I can myself. I think my costume was made for about $200 in total with all the materials. I was so lucky to get the fabric with 40% of at my local supplier You can see my WIP here :
  4. You can do it - Rome wasn´t build in a day
  5. Hi I used a normal shirt pattern for the tunics and moded it so it fit - the same with the skirts, and just winged it, so sadly I don´t have an exact pattern for them.
  6. Dan can perhaps help you regarding the soft parts and paint - you could try and write him a pm : https://www.theflagshipeclipse.com/forums/index.php?/profile/1834-danrodjr/&wr=eyJhcHAiOiJmb3J1bXMiLCJtb2R1bGUiOiJmb3J1bXMtY29tbWVudCIsImlkXzEiOjY0LCJpZF8yIjoyMzg3Nn0=
  7. Thank you so much - this is a really nice WIP, that I have used for my build also - and I love the formed hoodpiece, that I got from your store
  8. It has been a month without a reaction to my proposal - anyone ?
  9. Nice to see, that you are still working on this
  10. Hi Many uses the formed hood from Twi´lek Pam - I´ve just been approved with my COFT version and it can be used for both versions to get the support you need. It looks like this : + there is a very nice WIP with pictures of the back, that you can take a look at here :
  11. I think I paid around 160 DKK for all the materials for the belt, and it is totally worth it to make it yourselves , you can save money and get the correct looking belt. Thank you so much - looking forward to seeing, how you put yours together.
  12. You´re welcome My heart goes out to your country in this hard periode - it is horrible news we are getting - here in Denmark, we got closed down pretty fast, only food and medicin stores are allowed to be open. I am 3 weeks in a quarantine with my 2 sons - but also standing by for deployment if the Military needs me. Hopefully it will be better soon... You can use one of your own t-shirts as a pattern on the black fabric to cut after
