Hello, my name is Katherine and I signed up for Terrapin base's email, where they suggested I introduce myself on my base's forums. I'm working on a few costumes, Princess Leia ( ANH and ESB end) and Lt. Connix, though I have minor concerns about my costume progress. I have very wide calves that are about 19 inches around and boot shopping can be a major struggle, as I rarely find adequate boots that have enough elastic/space for my legs. For Connix, I picked up a pair of brown boots that have elastic in the back that's a few shades darker than the boot color. I wanted to ask if that could be a problem for approval. I was told by another Connix costumer ( I'm not sure what her base is, if she's approved) that I would need to add plackets to cover the elastic but she never elaborated beyond that when I asked for further help. Is there a base judge who could provide advice on what I should do?

Hello there katherine! I am currently working on a couple of connix costumes, and I totally understand needing larger boots, what the woman who gave you the advice on plackets most likely meant a strip of matching fabric that when work is the same side/covers up your elastic. I can take photos tomorrow of a similar solution,as well as another method for Disguising the top of the boot to make it look more cohesive! If you want to chat, and have instagram my handle there is exactly the same as on the forums! I can get notifications much easier there and faster reply times! MTFBWY!

Hi!

I have both ANH and ESB end scene Leia approved- let me know if you’ve got any questions! It’s great to see more Dignitaries joining the fight against the empire Smile

If you’re not already a member, I highly recommend joining the Facebook group “Bun Squad- Leia Cosplay Group”. It has super valuable resources and it’s how I was able to put my costume together. I believe there is one as well for Lt. Connix.
