Hi everyone! It's been a LONG time since I've been on these forums, but I would really like to get back into it, starting with Fulcrum Ahsoka from "Rebels"! rebelbird

Any advice on where to source parts, patterns used for the base dress (or gloves, etc), face paint, or really anything would be very helpful!

(I am in the process of talking to Wretched Hive for my montrals, so I'm good there.)

Thank you!! Smile

ahsoka

From what I've seen a lot of people use a normal dress as a base, in the right shade/fabric and modify it to fit and use the sleeves for the arm pieces. Picture of the type of dress that can work below, I believe this one was from Target!



As for the armor and belt, I know a couple sellers on Etsy have the belt/hip armor. There is a French company I know of as well that does the full armor set, but I'd imagine that'd be a bit pricey (especially with shipping).

For paint, I personally use Kyrolan Aquacolor Orange. Its easily sealed with baby powder and makeup setting spray, and stays on very well! It is water based so can rub off with too much sweat or water, but even with sweating in Southern California I haven't had issues with just the face painted. A lot of people use orange tights for the arms, to make it easier to change and less of a risk for rubbing off. WeLoveColor is a popular brand!

Hope this helps Smile
