Victoria's Asoka costumes are Dave Filoni approved. And Ashley Ekstein (the voice of Asoka) approved. Smile

It's worth noting that none of us in Sunrider who have tugged at her Ahsoka tunic can figure out what fabric was used. It's almost like a velour? But the pile is super low, it doesn't really have a nap, and it's not reflective when photographed.

To keep the diamond shapes in her leggings, she actually has pieces of wonderflex sewn in there, which you can't really tell until you get your nose right up in them. It's pretty effective.

Looking up moleskin on Fashion Fabrics Club, it looks like you can get it with a 3% stretch, but hers was stretchier than that. It's not moleskin, I know that much from tugging on it in person. It has a look that's very much like moleskin, but I don't think that's what it actually is.

But, something like this may work for you: http://www.fashionfabricsclub.com/p/18502/Maroon-Moleskin

so....as I'm planning a big event in my life next year, I'm trying to save a bit on the costume making side - that means wishing for stuff for christmas Wink

I'm looking into the leggings, and wondering if anyone has any good tips? Especially on the "diamond shapes"? How to make those?

I spoke to Victoria she put wire into her tights to keep the diamond shapes.

She did them, and they looked great, until she washed them. Now there are a series of circles down her leg. Back to the drawing board...

I thought that the secret may be to sew in a diagonal crosshatch of long, straight elastic that goes a fair way past the ends of the diamond. Then cut out the diamond and hem the edges.

Not quite sure I follow that (Or, I do see your drawing Wink ) but wont that create some very weird looking, long seems way out of place? Or do you have some fancy way of sewing it? Smile

This is simple in theory. When you hem cloth there is always a closed space formed by folding back the cloth. In that space, people sometimes put elastic to hold the shape, but in this case you could thread wire through it. It would have to be wire that you are certain would not rust with washing or sweat.

I had not thought that far ahead. Yes, it probably would have some odd lines in it, but it would hold the diamonds secure. It depends on your focus and priorities, I think that an elastic solution would be more comfortable than sewing in wire. And more permanent, as you will have to bend the wire back into shape every time you use it, and that will lead to odd kinks and eventually break the wire.

A lot of Ahsoka's costume is designed around the ease of drawing without worrying about gravity or physics. Plenty of it is impractical and we have no idea how it is meant to be done in reality. Whatever we do will be a compromise of look versus function.

We have also been trying to duplicate her fighting style, and in all attempts we've discovered that it looks pretty and is absolutely useless in a fight. Firstly, it effectively shortens her reach by the length of her forearms, makes any upper torso defence difficult, and any good hit she defends against is likely to push her lightsabers straight back into her forearms. The only thing it may be good at is defending her back while she is running away... IF she uses the Force to detect incoming attacks.

Ahsoka is very cute, but in reality, ridiculous. Everything we do with her will be a struggle to compromise a crazy cartoonist concept to an impossible reality. Wink

Sounds very Jedi Ben and lots of fun! Laughing

Wouldn't it be possible to cut a small rerctangle out of plastic, an sew it in around the holes. this way you would only gettwo seems, on the inside and on the outside ofthe plastic, and the hole itself would stay in its form.
If you take your plastic soft enough, it should be able to follow the curve of your leg.
An additional benefit isthat you would get a leveled surface around the holes, just as this picture seems to have.

I tried the wire and it was blah, my boyfriend then suggested something that I stupidly didn't think of. Why not get the diamonds in the skin colour and sew them in. Quick, easy and looks awesome. To state Fry from futurama: "What the hoth!"
