I might not have it as a formal costume though, that depends on if the blaster I've ordered will get her in time or not.

You ordered a blaster!? I have been waiting for you to get back to me about one. You did not see my PM that I sent almost a month ago? I figured that you had just not been here to visit the site for a while.

You have PM, it was there in my inbox, but I haven't had any blinking about a new message so I haven't checked until now.

It looks good. Smile I would suggest pushing the braids back a bit from the hairline. It looks like they are right at the front hairline right now. Also, do you have any matching extensions you can sew in to cover the part area?
I look forward to seeing the finished result. Cool

looks really nice Smile I agree with Lora, I think the braids should be a bit further back. But hard to tell from the angle of the picture Smile

Gahh, I'm getting a bit stressed about this. It is possible that I wont get it approved in time for next weekend, but in that case I'll use my pilot for all formal occasions and use Leia when I'm just running around in the con. Still I should be able to send in photos tomorrow, and then it depends on if it's good enough and how much time the LCJs have.

Today I decided to scrap the pre-styled wig. Instead I'm going to just pre-style the braids and pin them up each time I wear the wig. I'm also going to use the hair in the wig just for the bun in the back and add two loose braids for the head wrap.

I also made a quick and dirty rank badge, just going to glue it to a piece of plastic tomorrow.

Unfortunately I haven't heard a word from the LCJs since sending it in, so it looks like I wont be able to wear it officially this weekend.

So after two weeks I finally got feedback from the LCJs and there is one thing I should change. Now I'd like to hear second opinons on this. It's about the stripe on my trousers.

In the standards it says it should be "about 1 inch" wide.

I choose to make it 1,5 inches wide since my legs, and especially thighs, are a lot more than 0,5 inches wider than Carrie Fisher's. I think that looks best and proportional.

The LCJ says I need to change it to 1 inch.

What do you think, should I go for 1 inch and formal, or 1,5 inch and informal?

As you already have some formal costumes...

...if you prefer the wider stripes - go for informal!

As mentioned above by Björn: No one will recognize it!
