So far here is what I've got for this version of Juno. In the ref photos I've seen the boots appear to be black to me similar to her imperial version. The gloves I've yet to figure out and greeblies aren't weathered yet.

Hi Vicky, going to look at the refs and give you some feedback.

Do you want to copy the WIP to the base as well Smile

Thanks Empathy

I know there's a fix to figure out on the belt with bringing the rank bar closer to the front fixing. Also I've yet to figure out how to attach the comm pad like greeblie to my wrist.

Thanks for the help. Baring in mind this was a does this fit test. So everything might not necessarily be sitting totally right ie shirt not tucked in. Also gloves I haven't sorted yet and my greeblies aren't attached yet.

But these are the refs I used. I have a couple of another cleared Juno so I could see how the digital outfit translates to the real world (if that makes sense). Might have few more at home.

Hey Vicky! I'm going to add a few refs to this thread so it's easier to look back and forth. You've got a great start on this build- how exciting to see someone do this version of Juno!

There are a couple of things you may want to look at.

I'm a little worried about the colors. You may want to consider darkening the cuffs on the jacket, and the pants look much darker to me. They read more of the dark olive drab/brown or a dark grey that leans that way. The jacket cuffs and the pants are very similar in shade, with the cuffs maybe even a touch darker. I would also recommend giving the shirt a quick and suuuuper diluted dip in a dye bath. It looks off-white at its brightest and almost light grey at its darkest.

I bet the cuffs can be dyed darker or replaced with new ones in a darker shade. The pants can be overdyed, but the stripes would need to be taken off and redone afterwards.






I'm also a little concerned about the height and shape of the collar? Juno's neck is visible even when her arms are extended.

The jacket may be pulled back a bit, but even if you were to pull if forward, I think the collar may be cut too high? Empathy might be able to help you with this bit- I'm not sure how far you are spread out, but she might be able to connect you with someone close by.





As far boots go- they look like they are brown- all of her accessories (boots, belt, gloves) seem to match and if you compare them to the wrist comm, you can see the difference.

For the wrist comm, it looks like it is attached with two brown straps that thread through the bottom of the greeb. Leather/leather like straps with velcro or wide brown elastic might work?




The gloves- try searching for a half palm driving glove.



Something like this pair might work:

You may also want to look at the armor bits along the shoulder and see if you can shape them a bit more? What are they made of?

Really great start! I hope this gave you an idea of where to go- keep us updated and let us know if you get stuck!

Thanks for the help Kristina. So far im glad basic construction is ok just colour tweaks and odd adjustments .

Ok I'll have a hunt for boots and gloves. That's the straight foreward bit.. shirt and cuffs I'll see what I can do after I've moved house. For the cuffs what would I be looking for (colourwise it's almost a dark olive green ish right?). Regarding trousers I can try to figure out how to dye them or I do have a pair of trousers in a dark olive grey colour that I got for her then changed my mind and had thrm made. Would this colour work better? It seems be to darker than the main jacket. If these would I can swap the stripes and try to match the cuffs almost?

Collar wise I'll take a look and see if I can do the same as with my Jyn jacket and lower it and try to adjust.


Edit: before I do anything drastic with collar I'll try it again as in these pics i was sent it looks pretty good so it might be me. But looking at the construction it looks doable.

Also would these boots work?

I think those boots look good, I'll just check with kristina about the inside zip.

Pop the trousers on and let us have a look, otherwise perhaps me and some of the others can bump heads at NSC about what dye recipe might work.

Are the shoulder bars leather?

Sounds good with boots so far. The jacket ridges are pleather I believe. I'll try the trousers with the jacket as soon as since I'm moving Saturday and ice got bits in 2 places.

Brilliant. Boots are ordered. I'm not sure I think it's foam but I can ask who made it.

Would these gloves work? They seem to be very few and far between.

Remember you want dark brown gloves, and they need to have the fingers the references do. The link I posted with the picture has a pair if you get stuck.

This listing has a white pair in leather rather than PU. I had good luck dyeing my leather driving gloves for Mirax with just regular Rit dye.

Opps didn't notice they didn't have them they appeared to in some pics.
Depending how the sizes run, would these work?
