After being a Star Wars fan since 1995, and knowing several 501st/RL folks for almost 11 years I figured it was finally time to jump on in!

I'm excited to put together my Mara Jade Skywalker costume (short version of the green dress)! I'm still searching for a good wig (I have red hair, but it's not quite long enough) but everything else is on its way. I'll definitely post pictures as I get ready to apply.

awesome, I have purchased a couple wigs but they've all been from internet searches. I haven't really found any brand/company that I think is amazing and that you should stick with...If you have red hair though, perhaps an extension would work?
There's a costumer in our area that likes to join us for our Zoo Boo things, she does a red-headed Leia version because she's a red-head and thought it was easier to do extensions for ceremonial version rather than a wig. Food for thought.
If you want to do an extension, the Kankelon (sp?) brand is something I know people use (and Wookiee costumers) and like a lot for it's natural look.

I managed to find a wig on eBay that I think will work well. I need to brush it out and braid it still but I like the color and quality of it so far.

Cool...oh, there was a lady who, I think she lives in MI, did this costume pretty recently. Her thread shouldn't be buried too deep in the Jedi forums, in case you're looking for more information.

I saw the app, good luck. Be prepared for a request for more photo's. I can't say for sure that will happen, but I only saw the two.

I'll need to retake more anyways because I've already been told that the belt is too thin.
