Darth Traya - Questions

Recommended Posts

I've started my investigation on how to build the various items for this costume, and I have a couple of questions that will help me get started:

 

  • Is there a pattern that you recommend to start with for her gown?   It looks fairly straightforward other than for the folds at the shoulders.  I usually like to start with a pattern that I can adapt when possible though.
  • What wig source have others used?   Here is one option that I've considered:  https://arda-wigs.com/shop/le-tigre-classic/  Should I go with the white or silver wig color?
  • I've been looking into getting a saber from Ultra Sabers.   Would the 'Shock' hilt be appropriate for her?  http://www.ultrasabers.com/product-p/stunt-shock.htm   It seems that it is similar to the 'KOTOR II' style, but I wanted to get your opinions.
  • For the hair bands, am I assuming correctly that the band size height is what should change from top to bottom band?
  • What type of closure have you found works the best for the black wide belt?

I think that is it for now.

 

Thank you!

Hi and welcome to the board.

 

I´ve actually just put my Traya up for sale... a bit sad about it. But that´s just life... http://www.theflagshipeclipse.com/forums/index.php?/topic/2187-fs-darth-traya-costume/

 

As to your questions: 

 

You can use almost any dress pattern for a straight down one and give the front and back some more cm to it, so you can create the folds.

As to wigs - your link doesn´t work - but any silver one I guess. I found one on the net, just remember that with both the wimple, wig and headpiece, the wig shall not be to thick due to the heat.

The saber looks fine - though not all correct, but since we don´t need to get it approved with the costume, you should be fine.

As to the head bands, yes it is correct that they shall change in size from the top to the buttom.

For the belt I´ve got velcro, since the closure needs to be "hidden" in the back. I found it was the best way, I got mine custom made. 

 

I´m looking forward to seeing your progress :wink:

I am having some difficulty finding the right kind of boots so far.   

 

The boots I've found so far in the right style are mens, but they are too large.   I wear a size 7.5 womens.

 

Does anyone have a source suggestion?

 

Thanks!

My Treya is fairly close to being complete now!   My first trial run for the costume was at Star Wars Celebration and I have a few things to tweak after that event.   I received several good comments from others who attended the convention though.    I'll post more pictures once I have my submission pictures ready.
