Is anyone going to make/convert their battle handmaiden for this?

I have a few older tries at this costume and am thinking of modifying one of them to be in the style of the one seen this season (4) of Clone Wars.

To my eye, it looks like the fundamental differences are:
    -More fitted sleeves on the coat, coming to a gathered wrist
    -External, visible holster
    -Higher neck
    -Collar on the coat has a visible seam at the neckline
    -No undershirt
    -Boots are fitted


Hair, pants, belt buckle, pistol/blaster, and gold striping details look more or less the same. (Including, it would appear, the lining and gold detail on the lining of the coat.)

However, I can't decide on the color of the boots. In some shots, they look more brown to me than the ones in TPM.

Any thoughts or plans out there?

Are there any pictures out there? I don't follow the series, but I have a version of the battlemaiden outfit that I've never finished to RL standards and this might be a way to bring it back to life.

The one thing I didn't like about the CW version is the sleeves. My favorite part of my costume has always been the sleeves Smile

Here are some pictures I found (thanks to http://moonsofiego.thepensieve.net/):







The hair seems to be the same, but it does look like the collar is higher. Same with the sleeves, they are gathered at the wrist. It seems like the rest is pretty much the same.

URL tagging isn't working correctly for me at the moment...hmmm.

Here's a pretty good front shot:

And here you can see the collar seam:

It says the selected album/file does not exist.

Well, phooey.

Try this:

(Collar seam and apparently a mock neck undershirt. Guess I was wrong on that one!)
