I decided to go all in on my first (hopefully) approved Rebel Legion costume and I'm working on a Togruta Generic Jedi. Mostly because I don't have the resources to make Shaak Ti and there are perilously few other Togruta Jedi available for cosplay. The character is actually my fiancé's PC from several tabletop campaigns using the WotC Star Wars RPG, so I've got plenty of resources... some of which will need to be modified because of costume standards. After all, aren't all of RPG characters Mary Sues to some degree?

I'm currently facing two major conundrums:
1.) Does anyone have a source for adult Togruta prosthetics? I've found one girl off Etsy who makes them out of fabric and they look decent but I'd like to know what my options are.
2.) Is there any leeway for belts? I have lightsabers that can't be mounted using a D-ring or CoverTech knob (twin Dark Monarchs from UltraSabers) and I was thinking of going with something akin to Mara Jade's belt and using a holster to secure my hilts when I'm trooping and not actively waving a lightsaber around.

Pics of my first face paint attempt because I'm going to nail that before I do anything else. After all, they don't make unmarked flesh-colored Togruta so until I get that down pat, the rest of the costume is immaterial.

It's a good start on the face paint. Smile Can't speak to manufactures of montral, but I hope you find some you are satisfied with.

For generic jedi though I think you're stuck with either a clip or covertec thing, but you are always free to ask the LCJs.

Also, my wife has a covertec clip but not a wheel on the saber, and just leaves the saber on the club stand when not carrying it
