Hi I am Archivist32. Although I am not new to making costumes, I am new to the Jedi costuming universe and hope to slowly make a Jocasta Nu costume from scratch. Just wondering if there are any members in Canberra who occasionally meet up and swap tips with?

Cheers

Hi Joshua,
That would be nice to meet some people in Canberra. I look forward to hearing from the organiser in Canberra.

Sharon.

Hi Sharon and welcome to Tython !

As Josh said, some great costumes in Canberra and ironically Sair's first official costume was Jocasta Nu so I'm sure she is the lady to talk to.

Let us know if there is anything we can help you with Smile

Hi Shay and Josh,
I would like to see Sair's Jocasta Nu some time because I have an idea about how to do the standard Jedi pieces from all of the great work on the forums and blogs but which way to take the embroidery is another matter all together. Also, if the Canberra people have a meet up some time or a local email list I would like to know about that too. I may be able to get along to the ANU Film Group's showing for a while on the 8th of February. But it all depends on finishing my summer school assessment items on time.

Looking forward to your replies and meeting some local people.

Cheers

Sharon.

Hello Sharon,
I'm Drew, I'm a Canberra local also. Josh has asked me to felony and say hello.
I am heavily involved in star wars costuming here in Canberra.
I organise costume and armour parties for the local 501st and RL guys.
I'm hoping to have another in the not to distant future. If you would like to come along please PM or email me and I'll keep you informed.

Kind regards
Drew.

Hi Sharon!

Welcome to our Tython and Canberra SW gang (most here are 501st members but we won't hold that against them ;-) ). Sorry I've only just found the time to respond.

Glad you've found my build thread. If you need any advise, please feel free to message me. I've learn't so much over the past year. If I was doing Jocasta again I would make a few changes to do the circle skirt too etc.

I helped provide feedback on some updated CRL changes for her. I'll go and check if they have been accepted yet. They are vastly different than the set I worked off and I'd hate for you to be working towards a set of goalposts, only to have them changed mid way through.

Hopefully we will meet up soon. I plucked up the courage to go along to one of Drew's armor parties when I first thought of joining and it has literally changed my life. I have a new family through them (seriously great bunch of people) and my own small business too.

Keep saying hi, keep researching and always ask a million questions. Everyone here on the forums love to help.

Cheers, Sair

Sharon, these are the new Costume Reference standards that you need to work towards - http://www.rebellegion.com/jocasta-nu/.

You may have found different ones under the Prequel Jedi Face Character section but those are out of date. Have asked for them to be update (think people forgot they were listed there too).

Cheers, Sair

Hi Sair,
The link you mentioned is the one I have began using to make my costume. You can see the write up in the costume making thread or pop over to my general costuming blog at http://rosiesstuffnsew.blogspot.com.au

I am open for a coffee some time if you are interested please PM sometime.

Cheers,

Archivist 32[Sharon]
