Hi guys! I've wanted to get involved for years but never had a character I felt compelled to represent-- but then Rogue One came out! I'm in the process of putting together a Jyn Erso costume and applying. Smile Hope to see you guys sooner than later!

Thanks for the warm welcome!! I ran around Wizard World in a makeshift Jyn costume, and had a blast. A good catalyst to get my act together.

So, I scored a pair of the boots on eBay at a third of the list price. Now to make the boot covers and learn how to topstitch by hand... (part of me wants to buy even cheaper boots to practice on so I don't ruin these, haha).

I'll be acquiring other pieces via Etsy over the next couple months, unless I can find a seamstress locally to help me with the vest. Wink

So, good news, y'all! I'm like 55% there, the remaining 45% being the vest. (That thing is a beast.)

Here is a photo from WizardWorld... NONE of it is screen accurate, it's just all stuff I already owned (except the vest-- scored that from the boys' section of a thrift store for $3 and dyed it brown). I was doubtful anyone would recognize me due to the lack of accuracy, but it went far better than expected.
