I really like Leia's deleted Scene Sandstorm gear. I have been very motivated to do this costume, and I'm finally starting to work on it.

I started by searching for a fabric similar in color and texture to that of the reference images, and these images here gave me a good idea of the fabric:





I went to Joann's searching for a fabric similar in color and texture to the sandstorm cloak, and chose this fabric:



Now for the stripes. I have two of the four stripes applied onto the cloak, and I will apply the last two stripes on soon.
Here is the progress of the cloak:





I noticed that my cloak is very wrinkled! Embarassed I will iron it out before I submit, and after I'm done putting the rest of the stripes on.

Here are my goggles:



This is still a work in progress, I am open to any criticism and improvement advice Smile

Thank you so much! Very Happy I'm finishing up the last two stripes. I've got the hooded cloak almost finished too. This is great for covering up the bikini during a con!

Update: I am still working on this Smile

I've put the project on hold for now until my new Slave Leia is finished, then I will be resubmitting the new one. Then I will finish this after I resubmit my new Slave Leia. I'll also post a review thread for the bikini and all of its parts Very Happy

Ok, was going to stop at my fifth Han costume -Hoth, but now you have me thinking of doing sandstorm Han. I think I may have to start with a pair of those goggles since they look like they may be a very close match.
