Character/Costume Description

Flightsuit modified from orange boiler-suit
by Nationwide Workwear, using tutorials
on
Rebel Legion forum.

Flak vest, bought from fellow Elstree
member, needed heavy modifications
following advice from pilot LCJs at
Celebration Anaheim:
- Chicago screws removed and shoulder
straps shortened
- Smaller ribs on what should have been
"the gap" were removed; area was
unstitched, cut, flattened and re-stitched
to
conform to current costume standards
- Correct fasteners attached
- Ladder stitches added to shoulder straps

Chestbox and compad from droidwelder.

Leather Italian jackboots from Epic
Militaria.

Vintage leather Vespa motorcycle gloves
from eBay vendor.

Readymade helmet from Shepperton
Studios was a 50th birthday present.

Please note: as I am 5'2" tall, I had to
adapt the pocket sizes to ensure they
were
proportional to my build. The close-up
pictures are to show that I sized the code
cylinder pocket down, to make it
proportionate, and put it further up my
arm
so it did not meet the compad pocket.
The
elbow close-up shows that the code
cylinder pocket does not come below my
elbow.

Character information: Jil Porkins was the
older cousin of Jek, who died fighting the
first Death Star. A skilled pilot, she had
already been a Rebel sympathiser but
Jek's
death turned her into a participant in the
fight against the Empire.
