UPDATE:

So I知 not joining the ranks yet.

Have been informed I need to bring in the shoulder seams so that the arm pockets sit higher than they currently do.

Hopefully, once that痴 done... 🤞🏻

Not necessarily.

For 吐ace characters (named characters from the movies or other media) standards require you to have a similar hairstyle. Since I have a buzz cut I have to wear a wig for Luke.

How痴 your hair? Check out some of the other approved Lukes and see what they池e sporting on top of their lovely bonces.

You got this. I guess they are a little low in looking again, but if that's the only thing, that's not bad. It's always something.

I do a wig, too, since I have Rey hair. Wink

Still looking for the perfect one, for ANH (my pilot) and eventually (much harder find) for ROTJ so I can take off my Endor poncho and go Death Star. One day... Wink

My ANH Luke wig came from CynthiasOneMerchant on Etsy.

I also have an ESB one coming from PoseWigs.com.

I致e found both resources to be pretty good.

Thanks for the info. I might check those out. I really like Epic Cosplay for most of my wigs, as I've just had really good experiences with them in the past. Their Luke wig tutorial on YouTube is amazing, but I'm just not that skilled. I heard a rumor a while ago that someone on their staff is good at cutting and styling ROTJ Luke wigs, but haven't pursued that.

Pose is great, too.

For now, I'm actually using a very cheap wig that I styled and painted. It's working, but I'll likely upgrade eventually.

I suppose this should really come under Snowspeeder, but here痴 my WIP Luke Dagobah X-Wing splashdown.

Aside from the (soon-to-be-addressed) flightsuit shoulder issue (not even visible here), think I have this all done.

Looks good! You might move your chest box hose down a little, but that's for the judges to say and it can always be moved later anyway.

Good luck. Or, erm, may the Force be with you. Wink
