Character/Costume Description

I love the character of Barriss Offee. Especially since she is a Jedi Healer and I work in the medical field!

I used royal purple velvet for the cape, which I embossed with a rubber stamp giraffe skin pattern I found online. The hood was made with a sturdy piece of felt sewn inside and a long piece of floral wire hand-sewn onto the felt. That's how I got it to stay round. I made a separate velvet colar for my neck. I used a matte jersey knit fabric for the skirt. The bottom is actually six pieces cut on the bias and sewn together to give lots of flare and drape. The top is actually a long sleeve leotard I made from a lycra knit. It has small brown horizontal lines which make it look ribbed. I cut the sleeves longer so they could be rolled up to my palms. The buckle was made with DAS clay and two aluminum flat-head machine screws that hooked into my brown leather belt. And finally, I applied the make-up (myself!) using Ben Nye's misty violet for the Chalactan tattoos/lips and an olive green for the face and hands.

This is my very first Star Wars costume and actually the first time I've attempted sewing anything! It was so much fun (and tiring, too) making it. I can't wait to complete my next costume.
