I was randomly browsing Wookiepedia one day when I ran across this lovely lady right here!
I was instantly inspired to do her costume! So I went out and bought a few of the comics she's in, since Wookiepedia has so little to offer, reference image wise. So my question for the experts is: Would she be accepted as a canon character? I'm not sure if she has enough sources. I can upload more reference images of her, if that would help.

Thanks! You guys are awesome! Mr. Green

you need three references from 3 different LFL publications/sources.



if a character appears in , lets say, 4 issues of a certain comic book title..
and these 4 issues are all from the same storyline, by the same artist..
..then this would be a single reference.

you can't cite individual panels within the same page;
nor individual pages of a single book; nor individual 'chapters' (of a single storyline).

if a storyline takes place over 4 issues, (meaning:same writer;same artist -- one single story broken into 4 comic books), then those 4 issues together would count as a single reference.



you can also use novel covers (cover art); in-book descriptions from within a novel; video game screenshots; video game 'cover art' ; etc..

(a problem arises when each of the sources uses a different costume-variant for the character in question: all 3 sources must depict the same costume) Wink

---> I'm not sure that 3 separate sources exist for this costume. in which case, it would not qualify as a 'Formal' costume.

Confused

I've gotten the go ahead, so now I'm working on writing/wrapping my head around her CRL's.

So, in everyone's professional opinion, do you think her shoulder armor is leather or metal? I'd think metal, but in certain panels it looks dull and flexible.

And is there two belts? Or does the one have a loop on the right side for her holster?

And what do you suggest for the boots? In the second source, they are fairly heavy duty combat looking boots with a pattern on the front. In source 4A her boots are thinner and tighter fitting. In 4C where you can see the top of the boot there's a horizontal line pattern visible, and then on the picture below it we're back in the combat boot area.

Sorry, had to add more questions!

I'd say metal mostly. Which of course could be plastic made to look like metal to avoid weight. I think it overlaps a bit, the plate closest to the neck over the other. Maybe even a mix of metal plate under with a layer of leather on top held by two rivets and washers.
