Hi! I'm looking for some feedback as I approach finishing this Rey costume. I've been working on it for a few months now, but I think it's nearly finished. Since there are so many wonderful costumes here, I thought I'd give it a try and ask the best for some advice Smile

Here is a couple of pictures of the costume.




For the shirt I changed the sleeves and added the details on the left sleeve as per reference photos. I made it look dirty using some paint.

The arm wraps were lightened and then dyed in coffee, then sewn to a sleeve so they are easier to wear. They were also distressed using some paint.

Please don't mind the boots as I'm waiting on the film accurate to arrive (they were lost in transit over a month ago...). One piece I'm not entirely happy is the vest. I'm tall and the fabric I found seems to be too short for me. I do love the color, the texture and the way it draps which is why I haven't been able to find a good alternative where I live. What do you think?

You can browse the album here: http://smg.photobucket.com/user/blue_bliss/library/Building%20Rey

Thank you all for making this community great! I look forward to all your advices.

Hi dear I hope that already approved Reys are giving you some feedback!

Are you almost to the point that you'll start weathering?

Thank you all - Obrigada Smile

I think I'm happy with it and will submit the application soon. I got more fabric for the vest - it was too short -, and adjusted the color of the arm wraps by making it more grey in tone and more weathered. I hope it's ok Smile



I'll keep you posted. Thank you for your support!

looking good so far! the armwraps might need to be a different fabric but i'd leave that decision up to the judges. does this version of the costume require gloves?
