Hi There,

I've started a constructional proposal for making this costume, but I don't even know where to start otherwise.

Can anyone tell me where to send my proposal or any of my WIP pics? I just want to make sure that I'm on the right track before I start making it.

I hope I tagged that image correctly... it's been awhile since I used a forum.

Thank you for all the help in advance.
Cheers,
Jennifer

This is my suggestions for construction and I'd really like to get feedback on it before I start to construct it.

Posting here is the best first step for construction feedback. This is the best place for members (and judges) to give feedback on your progress.

Your detail collection is fabulous in there! I was putting together a gallery for this costume earlier this week, and the sleeves/cape bit was driving me crazy for consistency (or lack thereof). If you want, I can try to translate your notes into a costume standard.

The materials you've found look great so far. I can't wait to see your progress.

Thank you!

I've gone back in and updated my WIP to a PDF to make it easier to read
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1IHT5EKKT5Pu-o1h-sZIXSUVC4OfNitak

And I started a Costume Standard too... but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated... it is a comic afterall and some of the details are unable to be reproduced if you have never seen them moving on a living human being. I suppose people who reproduce costumes from animated series feel the same way.

Thanks again!
(Ps any tips for getting the image to appear in the body of a message would be appreciated too! Cheers!)

Your first crack at the standards is fantastic. I started a discussion for it in our standards forum so that it gets more attention: http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1113526

I love the materials you have chosen so far in your WIP. If you want to get images to show up directly in posts/replies here, you can use the bb-code tags like this:

Code:
[img]http://www.senate.rebellegion.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/leia_poe_nemoidia22.png[/img]


Which will show up like


Note that your URL needs to end with a photo extension like .jpg or .png, which rules out google docs for hosting. I tend to use imgur as a host for direct linking images here.

Since this is a NTTL Costume, you’ll need to provide references with your submission. I collect all images in a folder on Imgur and then, when I submit, I send a link to the album so the judge as all the references available to them.
This is a beautiful costume and I look forward to seeing it made!
I believe Kelldar has been making this as well. She may be a good source for tips on construction. Good luck on your build!!
