I will try to get better images for her boots and some images of her hood and cape from the back

I can't stop taking screenshots of this girl, so I'll try to post only essentials.
Thank god for photo mode in video games, i've started a new playthrough to go to Dathomir to get those scenes when Merrin wears the hood and cape. And I've also noticed she has additional knee-parts on her boots.

her face cover is bugged and can dissappear at certain angles, but it's a good shot of details her headpiece

And I also managed to get a decent picture of her boots after she takes off the cape

Better look at inner parts of the gauntets and the shape of the glove on her palm

I'm also trying to scale the rock that she is using for magick or may be she has a couple of them.. it's rather large during story cutscenes, but gets really small during idle animation

Those closeup shots are effing fantastic! Great job! Those will come in REAL handy. 

 

Also, from what I can tell, same boot but cape version has the knee part, yes? Looks like it actually folds down and into the boot functionally based on the seams.

Maybe, but my money is on detachable ones. Just like the shoulder pieces - they are attached somewhere under the red tunic/dress, there is no need for them to disappear after she takes off the hood and the cape, but they do. It's like this is her full traditional costume, but when she decides to help the main character - she just leaves a lot of unnecessary things :lol:

I've played trhough all her apperances in the hood and cape - and every time she had those knee parts.
And I was able to find an angle when her hood dissappears. Sorry for cropped photos, it can only happen when her face is almost off-screen. I didn't expect there to be another detail, but it looks like she has a brown-ish headband.

I wonder what do you think of the headband and how it supposed to go around her head, but is lost in the textures..

Some close-ups of her face cover + texture of the red fabric. It looks like the inside of the balaclava is lighter gray.

It looks inspired by Ventress's hood from TCW

I’m researching this build too, though sadly none of my pictures are worth sharing :-( Does it look like her pants have a seam down the front? Or is it pressed to have a crease?

Hey! Glad to see you here. 
I think it's pressed to  have a crease - not only at the front, but at the back too.

"I wonder what do you think of the headband and how it supposed to go around her head, but is lost in the textures.."

This does bring up an interesting issue, while wearing the hood you would never see the handband sides or back, just the front section that we're supposed to see. So the argument could be made that what we can't see isn't a deal breaker, much like a TK undersuit, if there's a logo that can't be see it's not really an issue because it's hidden by armor.

Yeah what's shown here is pretty much what would be required, with the constituent that it means hood stays up.

 

If you look at the sides, the gold stops at the ear with the pattern, so it isn't necessary to go all the way around. For ease of fluid construction, durability, and look, I would recommend having the leather headband strap go all the way around.

I mean that it dissapears in the textures at sides and at the back. It's hard to get a decent picture from the other side or from the back because of the fix lighting.

This is getting more and more interesting. A fellow trooper pulled 3d models from the game and I have some more interesting finds.

1) When Merrin has a cape - she only has a front tabard

2) I was right that her headband is supposed to go around her head (i think it could be set for level 2 approval: like it's not required for basic approval - but it's more accurate)

3) Textures turned out to be really helfull, I wanted to get a clear reference for the pattern on her red collar and yay!

Those are great finds! Would the cowl/cape be optional items for approval? What are people’s thoughts on the red tunic fabric? I was thinking linen and my friend suggested wool. Sorry for all the questions :blink:

Colors: My thoughts are that the shirt is a charcoal grey, pants black, tunic red, belt and arm bracers deep dark brown.   

Has there been talk about what fabrics this is supposed to be?  I haven't done the indepth study yet of Merrin compared to second sister.

I don't think that her pants are black, i would say that they are dark grey, just a bit darker than her shirt.

In case people are interested, Gio (the custom boot maker for costumes such as Seventh Sister) is starting a template to make Merrin boots. Not sure how long it'll be, but they generally make some damn good boots, and will make them to your custom measurements.

I'll put out there a second praise for Gio and his work, I have a pair of his animated Clone Trooper boots and they're probably one of the comfiest pairs of shoes I own (costume or not).

Maybe you have his address so I can write to him?
