  1. Well, this isn’t something I can do myself. It would need to be a group project as I only have one variation. This is why I brought it to the detachment, because I can’t just hand you images. We’d need pictures of each set of accessories which would likely need to be found amongst members and I’m not in a position to be able to see what members might have which versions.
  2. Bumping this because it’s not in the “being worked on” section and nothing’s been changed yet, and the clarification on the approved accessory combos is still something I would recommend.
  3. Making them turned out to be very easy for me. I used foam and Worbla. It was the first thing I made with Worbla, so even if you’ve never tried it before you might find it easy enough. You can read my blog about it here if it helps- http://withoutastitchon.blogspot.com/2016/04/mara-jade-knees-and-shin-guards.html?m=1
  4. Yeah, I'd need better photos that show the details of the bodysuit to really say one way or the other. The only thing that you might do is see if you can get the lower loop of the belt to hang more against your body, instead of sort of hitting against it. If this is leather, that would be easily done just by getting it wet and stretching it so it lies flat against you.
  5. Anyone else unable to login through tapatalk? It used to be my primary way of logging in, but now I just get error messages every time I try. I’ve tried setting to new passwords, and it still just throws errors up.
  6. I would encourage you to try your hand at the belt/harness. The leather work is legitimately only coloring the leather (unless you use pre-dyed belts) and then attaching it to hardware to fit yourself. It is extremely beginner friendly project. The jumpsuit is more complicated and it’s probably best you find someone local to you (like a tailor) that you can work with.

    Help for Mara!

    Worbla and foam work for the 501st, at least I’ve been approved with them! You might be best off checking on the shin guards with your local GML as they’ll have the final say. You’ll likely need to get the red off the knees as well. On her overall costume, I don’t see the harness? She will need that for approval, and there may need to be changes to the belt to meet the CRL. Unfortunately no belt in SW has a standard buckle like the one you see on your friend’s. Good luck! Always great to see more Mara Jades.
  8. It’s something called “underlining” effectively you have two fabrics and you treat them as one. But you may not need to with your choice of fabric. If this is trial run you can go ahead and make that and then see if it needs it. I like mine, and its fine, but because I tend to wear a corset underneath I end up putting on spanx to disguise it underneath. Plenty of fabrics won’t need the extra layer, its just an easy option if feel you want it.
  9. I like the Tia knight one better of those two. If you can order a sample, I’d do that and double check it isn’t toooo wet look. I don’t know where you’re based, but I found mine in a shop on Goldhawk Road in London for half nothing. One thing I didn’t do the first time, but will do the next is that you can up the weight with a standard spandex underneath it. When I remake mine that’s what I’ll be doing.
  10. It's not mentioned in the CRL, but it follows all the source material. The CRL is only the bare minimum required and working off that can still result in incorrect costumes. You should be working off the reference images where it is very obvious.
  11. The catsuit seems ok to me, although I'm not gone on the fabric. I'm guessing the back connector they said was too large is the one on the right. I personally don't see an issue with the width of the straps on either, but the grooves are in the wrong place. When it's on your back, the grooves should be parallel to the floor pointing to your left arm. If the picture on the left was mirrored, the grooves would look correct. I also wonder if you tightened the straps if it would look like it fit better. These comments are based off the 501st requirements, not RL.
  12. Those look beautiful!
  13. As the CRL is currently written, no it would not. But I'd also argue that the fabric is actually brown, but looks purple due to lighting. The back is where it is really purple, where a directed source of coloured light can go easily. If you look where it hangs by her feet though, it looks more light brown than purple. That is likely the truer colour of the fabric.
