  1. Yes, I did the avatar cap by myself. I used an old leather jacket of my husband, It isn't that complicated to do it, but it takes a lot of time. As I don't have much money and I hate it to order online stuff I cant touch and from people I don't know, I prefer to do as much as possible by myself. Of corse I loose a lot of time that way, but for me it works fine. If you are interested in how to build specific parts don't be shy to ask. Maybe I can help with pictures or patterns.
  2. I'm approved! Thank you so much for all the support. I'm super-happy!
  3. Yeah! You did it! It makes me happy to see!
  4. Hi Guys! Me again, sorry ... I think I just solved the gun number problem, mainly for this specific version. In my opinion that thing on Aphras left side isn't a gun but a pouch. (original painting) If you compaire it with the gun on the right side it is too small. I flipped the gun on the left side and it didn't match at all to the painting. But when I tried the same with a pouch with an open flap it worked pretty good. So, in my opinion, on the front cover of no 3 Dr Aphra wears a gun and a pouch. Would it make sense to take this pouch as an opti
  5. So, before I'm submitting my costume and reference pictures in the GML forum I'm uploading them here. This costume is the first version of Doctor Aphra I've ever seen. I instantly fell in love with it and I still like this version most. reference picture for the whole costume - version with two blasters version with one blaster reference picture for backside of the Jacket and the DL-44 blaster Reference picture for cap and hair leigh closeup Frontview Left side Backview Right Side Did I forgot anything? Thank you for your feedba
  6. Hi Guys. The hair dye stays on the nylon sleeve perfectly. No rubbing, no mess on the shirt or on the jacket - i'm terribly happy! Last week I made the last modifications and took the pictures I'm thinking of uploading on the CRL-forum. I'm so excited. Have a nice day! Best wishes from Switzerland
  7. In the meantime I finished the costume so far. Please notice that the pictures below are just a wearing test and no approval pictures. There are still some points I need to modify. And I'm unhappy with the blaster. I don't like the DL-44 shown on some of the paintings in the comics. It would be a huge clump on my hip which didn't match at all to the original and elegant holster shown front cover paint . So, I have no Idea what to do. On the other hand, blasters have always been an additional costume item. But anyway every advice would be welcome.
  8. Hello chaosbria, Sharpy didn't work. Maybe US nylon is different from European one. But anyway I was able to solve the problem with hair dye. Et voylà! I had the Idea with the hair dye because I messed a few weeks ago on my tights when I colored my hear. The blurs stayed on the thights.
  9. I took a nylon tight and and painted it with edding and alcohol. It didn't work. And a friend of mine told me that I have to use acid-based colour for nylon which is ususlly used for textile industries and not for end users like me, because it needs to be fixed with heat. Hm ... okay, so I have to find another way. I liked the idea with the tights, because of its light and almost invisible texture.
  10. A warm hello from Switzerland! I have an update. The belts are finished so far, but they could bear some weathering. In the meantime the tattoo test went terribly wrong. It looked nicely, but the colour didn't want to stay on the nylon sleeve but on my arm and I spent some time to clean up the grey mess on my skin. So I'm looking for other colour and maybe other material for the sleeve ...
  11. Hi guys! It’s been a long time since I was able to post some updates. In the meantime Dr Aphra has got three more items: the trousers the T-shirt (I wonder if I should do a decent weathering, because it doesn’t look that white on the front cover). the goggles / glasses still missing: -the jacket -the tattoos -brown contact lenses (maybe) -the boots (I’m thinking of pimping one pair of my officer boots) -the belts -the holster(s) -and the gun(s) I’m really unsure if there are indeed two guns. It seems to be a second one on the left side. It isn’t to see clearly

    Doctor Aphra

    I'm following this thread with big interest, because I'm actually working on the version with the red and grey jacket. There are some more differents, the belt buckle and the neck of the t-shirt for exemple. I'm currently having the same problems as you have - our brave doc changes her outfit almost picture by picture. In the meantime there are so many different under-versions that I'm going slightly mad.

    Doctor Aphra

    Congratulations! You did a super cute and cool Dr Aphra. Can't wait to continue on mine. I'm also thinking of sewing a tatoo sleeve. I think the mess is less if you don't have to paint your arm with colour every time ...
