I'm planning to start collecting pieces for the Mara Jade with black bodysuit & off white cowl, which I understand is approvable for both 501st and RL (as long as I don't carry a red/Vader lightsaber for the RL version of course!)

Had a couple questions about costume pieces:

First, about belt buckles. I see from references including Twi'lek Pam's tutorials that, for the belt with the pistol-style blaster, there are two buckles: an octagonal one and a rectangular one. However, on the belt with the "assassin-style" blaster/holster, it looks like perhaps only the rectangular buckle is needed? Anyone know if this is the case?

Second, are these goggles acceptable?



Thanks!
Jen

I only have the one buckle, the assassin style holster hides the back fastenng nicely Smile

The goggle shapes look fine, I had a set of 1940s that are very similar but are painted flat black. I replaced the original elastic with leather straps and metal buckles just to make it look a little more in world. The cowl will help the goggles stay in place. I put the hle in the strap once I hd worn the goggles in place over the cowl.

(BTW love your SWTOR icon Smile I just made one of my Sentinel's outfits for Celebraton Smile It is very comfy- Aspiring Knight's vest. Even as a crop top Wink )

Thanks for the tips - I will probably replace the strap as you suggested.

That's great that you have a Sentinel! I have a generic standard Miraluka Jedi (was inspired of course by SWTOR to do so), but the veil is such a pain on troops! I have better visibility in my Imperial Gunner bucket! How awesome that you did a Sentinel costume!

BTW I saw your Mara on the members page and your cowl looks great -I'm struggling with mine right now, trying to get it the right size. The tutorials I've found don't give suggested dimensions - do you know how long/wide yours was before sewing it together? Should it be roughly standard pillowcase size, or smaller than that? Also, what type of material did you use?
