  1. I'll try that! Hood is done and attached to the top, and... idk, I'm not completely happy with it. It's a really tight fit when I put the hood up, but I feel like if I make it any larger, it won't look right when it's down. I'll leave it alone for now and maybe poke at it later (probably doesn't help that I'm a little grouchy thanks to my computer crapping out on me during my staycation week...) I've started working on the skirt in the meantime, and I'm gonna need to get more fabric. But I think I have a decent plan in place! It looks like the lines in Jaesa's skirt are different fabric panels, so I'm trying that and seeing how it goes. (With bonus hidden pockets!) Sent from my SM-G973W using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks! Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Dumb question of the hour: how would you recommend I go about weathering the fabric? The one time that I had to weather a fabric costume, it was a Jawa, and I'm pretty sure splotches of vaguely sand-coloured spray paint and jumping in every mud puddle around just aren't gonna cut it here.

  3. Thank you! Current status: we're done the slip-stitching on her top, and hood construction is underway! (Once I figure out where my iron on adhesive is...) Sent from my SM-G973W using Tapatalk
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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.

  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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...
  11. 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.)
  12. 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
  13. Requesting detachment access. Lana Beniko was approved today! http://www.501st.com/members/displaymember.php?userID=18458&costumeID=350
  14. ... 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. ;)
  15. 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. :/
