I don't, unfortunately - they were grabbed from pausing a video. It looks there though, best as I can tell, that the zipper's in the back of that piece.

The Kenobi Behind the scenes documentary is going to drop on Disney plus in 4 hours, there might be some references there.

I’m back! Been a crazy summer. :) Bought fabric for my costume. I decided to go with 1mm neoprene because knit didn’t have the right texture or drape. Now I’m searching local print shops to find one that will make screens for me. I don’t mind doing the printing, but I don’t want to stock up on supplies for a hobby I’m not going to actually do.  I’ll probably buy my boots next. image.thumb.jpg.2e70f3fb262777c7cf7ac9d03954d938.jpg

 

Would you consider doing a run and selling some of the printed fabric? I might be interested in buying some if you did!

Unfortunately I don’t have the time or resources to print large quantities, but I’m happy to share the files I created and you can contract out services.

Understandable! The file would be a great help too!

So have been staring like a crazy person at the pictures I have again and think that the rubber at the center front of her costume and on the gauntlets is a rubber window seal.  I'm buying a few typs of S and V shapes to do some experiments with that as well. 

 

All of my printing supplies have finally come in. I hadn't planned to do it all myself, but paying to have the screens made wasn't cheap and I screwed up the scale of one of the patterns, so I decided to just bite the bullet and buy what I need. I purchased blank screens with the proper thread count for dense prints and but 2 types of emulsion to try. Both are made for high density printing. I found a supplier online that prints the film negative of the pattern for pretty cheap ($10 for my small one and $25 for the larger plus shipping). They arrived in a few days. 

 

My next step is to  make my first attempt at high density screen today. I'll take pictures and share links and things later. 

 

I'm going to start with the glove pattern first since it's small volume. 

 

I've also got the pattern for the bodysuit, so I will be adapting that for what I need so I can pattern out the parts for printing. Going to be a lot more activity over the next few months!

 

A friend of mine that loves doing leather work is helping me iwth the armor and she has one of my boots to pattern out the new shaft. I did some initial tests for aging the boot vamp and those worked pretty well. When I get the leather parts back, I'll share images and how I did things for that too. :)
