Hello, here is my Eadu build. A while ago, a few of the Stardust Sisters, myself included, all got Eadu fever and started building our own conchos. I've put off finally finishing this project, it got buried in my pile of things to do and fell low on the list of priorities. However I just reasoned how to have a full bandolier, to match the toy reference that one of my Stardust Sisters was kind enough to send me, but hide the remainder of it hidden and tuck under the concho. It's very similar to the way that Leia's belt does under her Endor poncho, which I' m not sure why it took me forever to figure out but here we are. Motivated and ready to finish!

From top to bottom, here is the cap.

I wanted to draft then make the cap myself, because I am partial to making odd space hats, and I inherited my dad's big head. I believe that the hat was mentioned to be either a Russian cap or a German cap, but I really can't remember at this point or find the discussion about it.

The cap is made of canvas from my fabric stash, batting, and Buckram. It has a fun boxy little shape. The top is quilted, rather then pleated like the Endor soft caps, because it looked closer. Luckily, the hat and goggles were on display at Launch Bay as the lighting isn't the best during the Eadu scenes. It may or may not be brown, the photos differ and since I did not see it myself, I'm not sure what color it is supposed to be, however on film it looks olive so that's the color I went with.



Her goggles were identified as vintage Cebe 15 model, mine are vintage Targas, here they are without any modifications on the hat as part of the first fit check. Finding the correct model proved to be a needle in a haystack, these are very close in size and shape. The only difference is the width of the lens itself, they came unopened in the original box, with two replacement lens.



Hat when worn. Cardboard is left on the lens to drybrush and not get the lens dirty.



Once the hat was finalized, I matched the color and fixed it.



To match the goggles to the Launch Bay ones, I swapped out the striped elastic for an attempt at "olive" elastic then cut two tabs of left over dark brown leather, from the gloves modification, as the tabs on the goggles. I tinted the lens with Rustolem lens tint, it took a couple of coats, and then weathered with dry brushing. Greeblie was purchased online from a European maker.



Concho is next post.

I am glad this is coming to life (again)!
Thank you for sharing!

The hat looks AMAZING!!! I can't wait for your concho write-up -- I've been staring at my mockup fabric for a couple of weeks now...

Nice work indeed!
For youbto knownI discovered the goggles were reshaped from the original piece, you can actually see the rivet in the middle closer, there is also a cut mark on the sides

And the cap was inspired from german M43 cap and finish m38, the side flaps can unfold to cover the head like a balaclava
Exemple

Thank you! I didn't mock up, but it certainly a good idea for this build considering how fussy it is.

Thanks for the information, that was one of the hats that I used as a reference image to pattern mine with.

The movie itself is very dark in the Eadu scenes, so Iíve heavily relied on the photos of the costume from Celebration Europe for pattern drafting. This was, at the time, my first try at draping and drafting entirely by hand.

For fabric, I settled on a olive twill with a brown undertone, to match best the color references. I'm using a contrast upper thread, and a matching bobbin, as I can't see where the bottom of a stitch is on the back in the lighter brown/khaki color.Thus, I think that they might have used this method as well. When Iím done with the sewing and weathering Iíll decide on waxing it or not. I can't really tell if it looks waxed in the film or not...it's certainly wet.

Newly released image.


The front of the garment I think is what would make this into a ďconchoĒ, as written by Glyn Dillion. It has the overlapping front, pseudo bat wing sleeves then the design of a regular poncho at the back. With that said, I found a few key frames in the movie, to reference the length of the back concho and how long the flared ends should drape down to. The hem of the sleeves crop off above the cuff of her jacket.


It looks like the tips should hit around knee length, for the furthest point of the tails. Mine is a little longer, iím just super hesitant to cut and re-hem until itís fully finished. The hemline of the concho itself at the front is above her crotch, it allows the holster to peak out on one side, the back, looks slightly longer hem but not much.

The hood is made of two pieces that is split with a wide center panel, that comes around the neckline into very pronounced rectangular shape. The left side has a greeblie on it. Based on the photos of the costume on display, Iím inclined to think that the hood is tucked and or pinned up the way that it is resting, although I donít mind it too much because it showed the fun little yoke on the back. With that said, I'm not sure how to correctly tell the scale of the hood when it isn't pinned up as it is. My center seam is flat felled all the way down. The lining of the hood and itís very specific pattern is based on the slideshow toy reference, the company was allowed to see the costume to replicate it on their absolutely beautiful little model.
I love this entirely extra little detail, it seems so very textbook "Glyn Dillion", that is always a little more then necessary and waaay too much topstitching on everything.

[ lighting is not neutral ]

I ran the bandolier under the hood and under the yoke through the seam to hide it. The bandolier is canvas that I scaled and patterned based on a more accurately sized comlink, with two reproduction German Dagger hooks and a third that her tonfa is connected to. However, the actual clasp of the dagger is considerably smaller then the clasp that is on my holster, so the tonfa is actually too large to lock into place and allow the clasp to close. I might have to find a larger, similar sized hook just so that my 3D printed piece won't fall off and break.



The bandolier is a little heavier them I imagined, I cut dowels off for the shells up at the top of it, it has three large snaps at various locations to snap it onto the concho. I am not sure if I switched the shells out to a more accurate 3D printed ones if that will change the weight of it? The maker/shop who produced the other greeblies has them in his shop but I haven't committed yet.

Very, very nice work!
Have you made a plan of the concho ?
I hope to come back in one week with some news too
(And all my apologies for the typography I use to write fast on my smartphone big finger/small screen 😫 )

I drafted the plan of the concho out by hand by mocking up the rectangular back then adding in the tapered "tails/wings". It ended up being the full width of my fabric, which I believe was 60" wide.
