is this version of Platt Okeefe acceptable for RL? If it's not, that's ok, I'm still going to do it cause I like this costume.

For Platt Okeefe is there lot of references ... but ... there are not on 100% same as references you posted ...

... maybe it will be possible to found 3 most similar separate sources and create standard proposal Smile

I had thrown a few images a while back on this link... ***Character Resource list for Fringe***

you may have to dig deeper, but I bet if you do some reading you should be able to find a few references to her costume thru discription in a novel or something.

Good luck... your going to need it.

I saw your gathering of pictures, and your missing the first one I posted, it's from pg 4 of "Platt's Starport Guide" (I scanned it myself)

I'll have to track down a copy of "Platt's Smugglers Guide" to see if the art in that matches the art in the starport guide. Nearly all the pictures are different artist to artist (the bane of EU characters)

The majority of the references show her having buff or tan pants, red blood strips, red boots, white blouse (button down shirt) red vest or jacket, Solo style gun belt, red and white stripped head band, and platinum blonde hair. There are gold hoop earrings in some of the references. I'll have to see if in any of the RPG source books there's a written description of her.

She's obscure but I like her.

She's got several stories in those Adventure Journals. I'd LOVE to see your completed costume with this - I love Platt O'Keefes character!

Good luck - and I'll keep a lookout for you!

progress! We've had a Goodwill open up less than half a mile from my house, so I walked down there with MEEKOtheBUZZsaw the other day and found the blouse and pants ^_^ now for the vest, belt, boots, gloves wig and headband. ^_^ I've got to do some modifications on the collar of the blouse and add the belt loops to the pants. I'm a little concerned since she's got a button down white shirt.

my next step will be to pick up the leather for the belt and gun holster. I'm still searching for a vest pattern that matches that vest (I've got a few that I can maybe modify to get it right) and I haven't decided if I want to do the cape or not, if I can figure out the penannular brooch I'll do it.


as for more reference pictures



and



show her in pale or white pants since they aren't shaded in any way

so I'm going to use view D w/o the trim for the vest pattern. Tandy leather is having a sale this weekend so the plan is to pick up the leather items I need to make the belt and vest
