  1. Status check: we have the pieces for the top all cut out and pinned to the duct tape dummy. Next up, sewing them to the top itself, unless anyone sees any immediate flaws with current placements! Sent from my SM-G973W using Tapatalk
  2. Promise, last one for tonight. Haven't been able to find gauze yet, so playing around with a really thin cotton to see how it looks! The back is starting to take shape. Sent from my SM-G973W using Tapatalk
  3. Sorry for the spam. It's the first day of actually doing things, you know how it goes. Starting work on this part, which I'll sew onto the ugliest, roughest-looking crop top you ever did see (which in my defense is going to get wrapped up in more fabric layers, so the haphazard will never be known. ). Might start patterning out the skirt tonight too -- we'll see how distracted I get! Sent from my SM-G973W using Tapatalk
  4. Also, started working on a template for the wrist guards. Think this looks proportional enough? (Ignore the line the arrow is pointing at. Got partway done and realized I needed to make the drawing a little longer. >.> EDIT: Nah, the template was way too big. Scaled it down using a credit card and I think this is way closer to accurate.

  5. So finally got to sit down and do some work on this. We have a template drawn for the top! I think I'm going to make a basic "bra" for the base and then do the wraps as separate layers. I might hide a zipper or a Velcro closure under one of the arms. There's also what looks like purple quilted fabric right under the armpits. Sent from my SM-G973W using Tapatalk
  6. You bet! I stg the best part of the update where companion gear doesn't affect their stats is keeping everyone in their correct outfits. =D (And why I had to roll up a new Warrior, since my first one changed Jaesa's outfits yeeeaaars ago. >.>) I've been advised to check out gauze for a material to use, so as soon as I either find a fabric store that mails materials in my area or am allowed back into stores, I'll be picking some up. Any other opinions for fabric to look for? Sent from my SM-A520W using Tapatalk
  7. And we now sport reference photos! The bracers and belt are going to need lots of finicky details, and NO idea yet how I'm going to do the back of her skirt... but we'll figure it out. now to see what in my fabric stash I can play with without having to venture outdoors...
  8. Because one Sith costume is never enough. Has anyone built a DS Jaesa Willsaam (Sith Warrior companion) from SWTOR, or know someone who has? I don't think there's any approved Jaesas in the Legion yet, although I could be wrong. I'm starting to do some research so I have something to do while in isolation (which may or may not involve rolling up another Sith Warrior so I can get some reference shots of her default gear when she joins the PC. My current SW put her in a custom outfit years ago and her original outfit is lost to the void for that toon.), but if anyone has any tips, I'm open to them! (Pics are not mine, I just yoinked them from Google. Standby while I roll up another DS Warrior.) (Also, I'm excited for a face character where I can just have my own hair and not a wig! \o/ I love my Lana Beniko costume, but gawd that wig can get hot.)
  9. I HATE making pants, so I bought a pair of cheapies at a thrift store. To affix the bias tape straps around her legs, I wound up using a strong iron-on adhesive and doing some reinforcing stitching in places. Eventually I'm going to redo the pants entirely and this time maybe actually *make* some... but that's a "later" thing. Sent from my SM-A520W using Tapatalk
  10. Requesting detachment access. Lana Beniko was approved today! http://www.501st.com/members/displaymember.php?userID=18458&costumeID=350
  11. ... So half a year, a full armour redo, and one or two mental breakdowns later (and my undying love to my garrison XO with his army of 3D printers and apparently limitless patience)... SL 37912 is here to kick ass and pick on Theron and Koth. And I don't see Theron or Koth anywhere. ;)
  12. So, one adventure with moving, one surprise surgery, two rounds of illness, and an ongoing mental health bellyflop paired with "OMG GET THIS DONE FOR MAY THE 4TH!!1!"... I give you status checks! Featuring wig, tunic, tabards, and LIGHTSABER [emoji3] Yes, I got fed up with the first pair of gloves and just modified a pair of biker gloves. No more shoddily-stitched-together vinyl for this Jawa-turned-Sithling! Boots! ^.^ Also, does this proportioning for the knees look anywhere near right? I've been staring at it for so long, I'm practically seeing doubles. :/
  13. Thanks! I'm procrastinating on her other glove still. [emoji14] Progress on her armour! I've since trimmed down the shins so her ankles are now much thinner, and will work on final forming when I have the actual boots to work with. Worbla so far on the shoulder bells, will add to the other bits later when my back stops screaming at me for existing. Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk
  14. I might even have a correct-shade fabric somewhere in my bin from my last Jedi build for the bias tape... I shall have to investigate. In other news, I've finally built the left-hand gauntlet and dear God glove making sucks and after I figure out Lana's right glove I'M NEVER DOING THIS AGAIN. Yaya Han's patterns, while super simple in direction, are not meant for the chubby-fingered. But the good news is, all I should need to do on this is weathering...
  15. You're making a Vaylin?! I think you just joined the ranks of my favourite people. In other news, thanks muchly for the advice, it's highly appreciated. ^^ Wig-wise I've been also been eyeballing the Magnum, but maybe in the pale blonde or dark ash blonde. I don't want to have such light hair that it looks terrible against my natural brunette tones! I've acquired the fabric for the outer tunic/tabards, and vinyl for the gloves and possibly a belt (covering). Sewing shall commence.... soon. [emoji14] I've been told I'll probably need darker bias tape, but what's the worst that could come of trying this one? XD (And bonus Vader fabric. Go me!) Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk
