Hi everyone, My name is Ian and I'm from the Uk. I've been a member of the 501st for over a year now (TK4960) and have just started getting my Wife (Mel) invoulved in costuming. She has set her heart on completing a Bespin Leia costume. So I'm current doing as much research as I can to get this project off the ground. I've found so many great reference sites already. And also realised why you don't see many of these costumes at conventions with the amount of work invoulved !!!!

One area that I wanted some help in was to understand what type of materials / colour were used on the
-Tunic / Pants and belt
-Gown
-Gown lining
-Yoke / collar

Also I was hoping you could recommend any good online fabric stores as I've not been able to find any good ones

Many Thanks
Ian & Mel

Hi Ian!

Welcome!

I don't know of many online fabric shops in the UK, I buy most of my fabric in shops/markets, but ebay uk do have a good selection if you know what you're after.

We have a forum for RLUK, Elstree Base, if you get chance pop over and say hi!

http://www.rebellegionuk.com/forum/index.php
Very Happy
