I've decided on making this character, however I could use some help.
Im not a seamstress and honestly, I wouldn't know where tofind one without your help.

I'm looking on suggestions on where to find:

Light blue long sleeved collared shirt
Tan over tunic with pocketed sleeves
Brown belt with octagonal belt buckle
Rank badge and collar insignia

It would mean a lot to have some guidance in this matter.

Hi Dave! Madine is a great choice!

I think we can probably find some ready made sources for most of the things on your list. I'm going to do a little bit of research tomorrow, but to start with I'd suggest for the shirt and belt peeking at the RFT forum.

The vest is very similar to some of the ERT ones, and I believe that there is a tutorial that Phyllis put together that includes the Madine variant as well. I'll look for that tomorrow for you. I don't know of anyone who has the Madine variant listed as ready made item, but your BMO may be able to help you find someone local who could help you, or recommend a local tailor.

The rank badge and collar insignia there may be 3-D files for, but I'm fairly certain there are tutorials. I'll see if I can find the links to those. Have you poked around in the prop sale section of the forums or on Etsy?

I'm still looking for the rank and collar insignia, The one place that does the collar bits doesn't seem to have great reviews. In the long term I'm looking to have someone I know print them as a supplier. Do you know anyone local to you who 3d prints?

Thanks, Empathy! It looks like the bits you still need sourced are the rank badges and collar pips. Also, here's another reference album for Madine, the tutorial Phyllis put together is saved in there as a PDF- the link to the original forum post is in the header. (When photobucket broke everything, I started saving threads for our local detachment.):

Here are a few places that sell the collar pips- it looks the originals were part of an airplane model kit:

http://www.shadowdalecreations.com/rebelforces.htm

I haven't ordered from any of these vendors so I strongly suggest you check reviews, but the last two were mentioned in this thread:

http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=489750&sid=918ac06d6ceefec37948cb83b8ed4d28

The first one I found after a couple of google searches.

For the rank badge- it's very close to Leia's. It looks like the circles may be a dark grey or black rather than blue, but I haven't compared them suuper closely, so I highly recommend looking at references.

Rebel's Haven has a tutorial for making the rank badge out of clay here:

http://www.rebelshaven.com/etbadge.html

and the 3D print file can be found here:

https://www.stlfinder.com/model/leiaendor-rebel-commando-trooper-rank-badge-vzd9AuSr/7702120

There are several people who sell them on Etsy.
