I actually started this build a while back - October last year I believe, but had to put it aside for my Ursa Wren build. Now that’s finished, so I am back to this one (and Cloud City Leia).

So far I have the vest, pants and gloves.

The vest I made from my Hoth vest pattern but shortened it to my waist. (The rank badge is just a place holder, I will be getting a new one)

The fabric is the same that I used for my Hoth vest as well, just in blue - the Casa Collection satin from Joann’s, but using the back (less shiny) side as the right side. I believe it was one of these fabrics:

https://www.joann.com/casa-satin/zprd_08527822a.html







The pants and gloves I found on Amazon. I might darken the pants a bit. I need to take them in at the bottom so that they will fit into the boots better, so I will do some test dying with that extra fabric.



The gloves aren’t available any more, but I got them in the Saddle Brown color:

The pants I got in Brown. They already have the center seam.

I will be using the same wig that I use for my Hoth Leia.

For my boots, I just plan on using my black Jedi boots and adding the necessary straps.

I just need to make the shirt, the rank badge and get the belt rig.

Beautiful tailoring on that vest! I look forward to seeing it all together.

This looks great! If you need the rank badge from the comic, LMK. My friend created the file for it and matched it to references and I'm sure he would make you one also. Very Happy

Thanks for the offer Natalie, but I already have a badge being printed for me 🙂

I also got a Han Solo belt and holster rig from a friend. She said she originally got it from Etsy. From what I have been reading on the thread for the CRL development this should work.






I still need to paint my rank badge once I get it from my friend. I have to add the straps to the boots and I have to make the shirt. I have a base pattern and fabric for that. I was originally going to make it a body suit to make sure it stays tucked into the pants, but I think I will just make sure it is long enough and add Velcro or some other type of fastener at the waist band to keep it in place.

I might try and get this one done for SDCC since it will be comfortable to wear and easy to transport.

Yep! They weren't too specific on the holster as the artwork changes somewhat in terms of what is on her at different times. Looking good. Very Happy

I got my new badge and was able to paint it the other day.



I think all that is left is the shirt and modifying the boots. I am working on other projects now, so this is a slow build. I might still try and get it done for SDCC.

This is my first comic costume.

Unfortunately I haven’t had time to work on it (too many other costumes going on right now), but I hope to pick it up again eventually. Just the top and the boots to do, so I am close!
