I'm working on a Generic Scarif Marine or Rebel Pathfinder as they're sometimes called. I've got a pretty good start with the helmet built, painted and weathered, I've got BDU pants, a belt, one of the pouches done as well. I'm working with a fantastic seamstress (legion member) to make me a jacket and vest.


this is the look I'm going for - https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Taidu_Sefla

I have some questions regarding the vest, the pouch on the right chest under the transponder seems to be part of the vest but I haven't confirmed that yet, is it a split pouch? is it sewed to the vest itself like a pocket or is it suspended by the webbing that seems to be sewed behind it?

Sefla's vest doesn't seem to have the webbing border like this one https://i.pinimg.com/originals/bb/5b/63/bb5b638c38746d06dff94ebeb18971c2.png

but otherwise they appear the same? Or does his vest need that webbing as well?

Here's my vest at the moment https://scontent-lga3-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/118350840_10223371217606948_5230376408593893193_n.jpg?_nc_cat=105&_nc_sid=825194&_nc_ohc=7e_N-RnBmwQAX_IYQu-&_nc_ht=scontent-lga3-2.xx&oh=1a8e42982b4b2043c13fe42efbb593c0&oe=5F6A5F2C

How does this look? Can I get a costume judge to offer some advice while my seamstress is still working on this for me?

thanks so much!

I'm going to go ahead and turn this into a build thread

As far as I know, costume judges do not give advice on WIPs. They only give advice during the application process if things have to be changed for approval. I am not a costume judge or an approved Scarif Marine yet, but I can give you some advice based on my intensive Rogue One rebel trooper and officer research. I also saw your post on Facebook but it is easier for me to answer here because I can post my references in a more clear way.

The pouches under the transmitter are not really pouches. They are pockets sewn onto the vest. They are constructed similar to some split double magazine pouches. The size of the pockets varies depending on the size of the vest. They should be proportional to the wearer. If you have a long torso your pockets will be longer. If your torso is wider your pockets will be wider as well. If you are short and obese like me your pockets will be short like Corporal Maddel's but wider than Lieutenant Sefla's. Captain Andor, Lieutenant Sefla, Corporal Tonc, Corporal Rostok, Corporal Maddel, and Private Basteren all wear the same type of vest. They only vary in size and color. Your best references will the ones of Cassian Andor because we have close-ups of him and photos of the vest from all angles. RebelLady (Kristina Gundersen) is sharing Cassian Andor references in GSC. There is a folder full of vest references there.

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/13vLogqz_ydBBDNl9k1pYV47s1zq7bsm8

There are different ways you can construct the pockets. There is one large flap that closes both pockets. The two pockets can be either made out of one large piece of fabric similar to a cargo pocket, it is only a matter of cutting, folding and sewing them correctly or out of a couple of small pieces. I did not have any larger pieces of fabric left so I made my pockets out of four smaller pieces of fabric. Each is made of a larger main part and a square bottom piece. I am not good at explaining the process in written form so I am posting photos of vest's pockets. Your seamstress should be able to see what I did. If not just let me know exactly what she wants to know and I will try to provide the information.

Yes, your vest will need all the webbing too to look correct. You are missing
the webbing under the large comlink pocket. In the references, there is also a small piece of webbing that is located underneath the pouch pockets. It can be seen between the zipper and the pouch pockets.

My vest's pouch pockets:
My pocket pouch is 16cm long from the top of the flap to the bottom and 14 cm wide in total. The depth is 7cm. Every single pocket is 7cm wide. The flap is 6cm high, 14cm wide and 8cm deep. It is a little deeper than the pockets so that it fits over the pockets.












Possible measurements of vests:

Lt Sefla's and Corporal Toncs pockets pouch is 16cm long from the top of the flap to the bottom of the pockets. I forgot to write that is the reference photos.

Here's my work in progress helmet, waiting on some options for the rubber band so there's just a black shoelace holding it together at the moment.





Wanted to post this image before I forget or misplace it, this is a great reference for the belt data spikes/gas capsule greeblies

Luckily I picked one of these pouches up cheap a while ago, not sure where/how I'm going to use it yet but I like it.





I also picked up the right mess kit off of eBay and got some blue RIT dye and got it to a color I like. I've dyed things before and I know it can be a pain in the arse especially if you don't want to risk ruining a pot so I did a combination of heating up some water in a pot and having the dye in a little water in a sand bucket with the kit ready to go. I brought the water up to an almost boil and then poured it into the bucket so no worry of ruining the pot!

I still want to weather it a little more and maybe lighten it up a tad but I think it looks pretty cool already so I may just leave it as is.

I've been stopping off at Tandy leather looking for scraps that will "match" my boots enough to make some cuffs. I finally got lucky and found a great big piece, big enough to easily make two cuffs and have some left. I think after weathering the boots and the cuffs together they'll make a good match and it was only $19 for a nice big piece. I've seen some others make them, I don't really know how to sew but just bought a used machine and I think this should be easy enough to use as a starting point to learn. YouTube here I come.

I've been customizing this Nerf blaster and I'm pretty happy with the way it's coming along. I can still remove the front barrel and the shortened clip comes out so I can still put a working clip in to fire off some rounds.

I've got a good friend printing a scope for me and we may print some new, more accurate stocks at some point as well.

Your build is coming along nicely. Your rifle still looks very much like a NERF blaster but adding a 3D printed scope and an additional part for the shoulder stock will solve that issue.

Looking great!

Btw, the "energy capsules" on the belts are a known real-world item. They're PCL (brand) air compressor hose fittings. You can buy the real thing on eBay, although shipping from the UK sucks a lot for those of us in the US. (It's a UK manufacturer, catering to the local UK market, so they're not really available here without overseas shipping)



https://www.ebay.com/itm/10-Genuine-PCL-3-8-Hose-Tail-Adaptor-Air-Line-Fittings-High-Quality-ACA2488/142171452843

Some people have used similar but not exact fittings available domestically, and I'd be surprised if they haven't been modeled for 3D printing yet.

Also, for the helmet band, I know a lot of us have been using fireman helmet bands.

I bookmarked your build a while back, thank you! I'm making the cuffs this week as I'm teaching myself to sew so wish me luck!

I have the hose connectors, and I ordered a screen accurate rubber band, thank you!

I'm sure your boots are going to turn out great. Keep us posted here with how it's going and feel free to ask any questions.

My biggest advice is getting sharp needles for your machine. Regular fabric needles won't cut it. Then just try them out on some scrap material and go slow until you're comfortable.

Good luck!

thanks Niall! I got leather and denim needles for my machine and it seems to have done the trick

I managed to teach myself to sew just enough to get these made



they're not pretty in some places but I don't think there's anything that weathering won't hide and nothing that should interfere with approval hopefully

I sewed a nice big piece of velcro to them so I get them nice and tight over my boots and they don't move


I used wood dowels as spacers while waiting for my boot greeblies, I tried to get them to match the look of some of the screen grabs and behind the scenes shots i've found. Hopefully they're close enough
