So I've finally mustered the courage to start on a costume I've wanted to make for several years - namely Suu Lawquane!



(She appeared in only one Clone Wars episode: season 2, episode 10). There are currently no costume standards for her, so I also plan to help make them, so Suu can be an officially approved character with the legion.



This is the only concept art I could find of her. They stayed close to her original design. Most notable changes are her hat, some of the tattoo patterns and details where her overalls.

After thoroughly going through every screenshot I was able to take, I mapped out her tattoos.



I plant to paint them onto a pink bodysuit, which I will also contour/shade to make it look more realistic. I bought a pink bodysuit from We Love Colors - I think it was "orchid pink". I have also bought and tested ProAiir Hybrid in the colour "bubblegum pink", which I found to be a good match.



Here compared with indoor lighting. (I painted a patch on my leg because I wanted to test the bodypaint's durability, and I didn't want to walk around at work with a pink patch on my arm where people could see it.)



Here with outdoor lighting. And no, I didn't plan for the shoe to match. Laughing

Going with pink latex lekku from Twi'lek Paradise; they are currently under construction, so I'm waiting excitedly.
Well this is a start, at least. Mr. Green Mr. Green

So, the mystery of Suu's overalls. I've run into an issue here. I struggle to understand how to make them. dunno









It looks like they are draped around her thighs. I have zero experience with draping and don't know how to cut out the fabric for it - how the shape would look in 2D when traced onto the fabric.
So, time to think. Any pointers are appreciated.

Hello Smile

This is a wonderful costume and I am very curious how you put it into practice.

The skin-colour fits perfekt Smile

So, Suu's boots. They look similar to plain brown riding boots.





This last image is from the concept art.

I think I will take a pair of regular riding boots and plasti-dip them brown.
A pair of boots like these, they seem to be the closest thing available.

I love your idea. Do you have any images of her back?

Yes I do, but we don't see much of her back. I've gone through frame by frame on the DVD, and in the one scene where we see her straight from behind she is running, so things look blurry.



You can't see much detail there at all. However, we can see the tattoos on her back from different angles, but no one clear frame straight on where you can see all at once.

In this one you can see she has two small tattoos on her lower back above her belt, but none on the mid-section of her back.



She has tattoo patterns on both her shoulders, which can be seen in other frames:





Here is my whole album of reference screenshots:

I've tried my hand at making a pattern. Some alterations need to be done to get it right, but it's a start.




(This is obviously only a mock-up and not the actual fabric I intend to use, nor are the jeans.)
