These are really helpful Meagan.

Would you mind if I show them to the international Jedi panel of judges for their feedback ?

Best to know straight from the horse's mouth Wink

Not at all! Best to know what they feel needs to be changed so I can make it perfect for submissions Smile

Thanks!

I see absolutely nothing wrong with your costume but that's just me. The colour is awesome.

Welcome to the boards.

Regards
Sez.

Thanks Sez! Coming from the most awesome Chewie coplayer I've ever seen that means a lot!

Whilst we are waiting Meagan, what would you alter ? You said you wanted to give some elements more love. What do you plan on changing ?

Yes btw, I agree with Sez, the colour is extremely well applied Very Happy

Mostly the shirt. I hand painted it and I'd like to find a way to make the pattern more precise. I'm looking into screen printing to see if I can get it more to what I'd like it to be.

Eventually I'll redo the back flap. Although it's in line with what most phave for their Aayla's the movie/comic version has a slightly different shape to it.

All pretty good actually Meagan. The only real comment is that the undershirt should be a darker brown rather than the yellowish base colour and the sleeve could be tighter fitting. Not bad at all 😊😊😊

Thanks Shay! Those are both pretty easy to sort out. Really appreciate it as I have a couple weeks now before PAX so I can get it done and then get some pics.

A couple test dyes to look at a different base for the shirt. The bottom one is too light but what are opinions on the other two?



If you can't see any difference in the top two here's the link to the picture.

Appreciate the help Very Happy

Here's the colour difference now that the fabric is fully dry. Disregard the ridges in the fabric it's just a colour test on some spare material I had to hand that was similar in make to the shirt Smile

Hi Meagan,

I had a look at the CRL pictures and my question to you is which one matches the colour tone of your 'leather' top? Despite being different materials Aayla's both have a very similar hue.

Two of your samples look warm toned to me, one cool (the one on the far right). Check them all together and then let us know which you think is closer (in person).

Hope this helps.

Cheers, Sair

P.s. I like the one on the right on a pure aesthetic level, but I always prefer cooler tones than warm so I'm definitely biased. :-)

Hi AaylaS,
You're build is coming along nicely.

Great job Sair, Shay and Sarah.

I know that these images aren't new to anyone but thought they may be of assistance if they are displayed here to help with the discussion. Amy rocking it as Aayla.







Also Meagan, found this good shot of her boots. Wow the soles are really chunky aren't they ?



There is actually a fair degree of contrast between the two colours of the shirt but the pattern is so closely spaced that it makes the overall look appear fairly dark.

I think I like far right the best ?

Yeah I agree the base colour is quite light.
