Hi ^^ i came from Italy and i'm very interested to make this dress but i would, if is possible, some help.

*Firstly the two "pins"*
I saw one site that could make them in PVC with 3d print.. could be ok for the costume? the links:
http://www.shapeways.com/product/PB5Y27ZJH/padme-mustafar-pin
http://www.shapeways.com/product/6TTJZRVJ5/padme-mustafar-belt-buckle?li=shop-results&optionId=57989347

Second--> The boots (the brown change in the pictures @.@ so I'm confused)

I've also saw many boots on aliexpress but I need an advice ^^

1) http://it.aliexpress.com/item/size-34-42-ladies-knee-high-pu-leather-black-brown-boots-flat-platform-shoes-women-Winter/32505470852.html

2)http://it.aliexpress.com/item/ENMAYER-Fashion-women-boots-flat-ladies-boots-Newest-stylish-warm-boots-for-lady-bleak-brown-orange/32278016603.html?detailNewVersion=2

3)http://it.aliexpress.com/item/t-Sale-autumn-winter-woolen-lady-snow-boots-sexy-black-brown-women-boots-34-39-size/1958553395.html?ws_ab_test=searchweb201556_2,searchweb201644_1_79_78_77_82_80_62_81,searchweb201560_1 (I could cut the upper part)

4) http://it.aliexpress.com/item/Women-knee-high-boots-2014-New-Ladies-New-Fashion-Over-knee-Long-Boots-Low-Heel-Women/2024752728.html?ws_ab_test=searchweb201556_2,searchweb201644_1_79_78_77_82_80_62_81,searchweb201560_1

*Very Happy the other questions *

I saw the dress of another member and I don't understand where is the zipper in the top (maybe hidden under the arm in the side?).
The top also have a combination of seams (like Redingote) (i saw 4 seams and this is cut under the chest in "v form") but.. are there also the "normal" seams in left and right sides? ( i don't find clear pictures for the sides)

leggins: could be ok if i cut a white leggins for make the seam in the center?

hair: my hair are short i saw this
http://it.aliexpress.com/item/3-Color-Synthetic-Hair-Fishtail-Plait-Ponytail-Long-FishTail-Braid-Hair-Extensions-Rope-Hair-Chignon/32485348235.html
maybe i can shop 2 of this and restyle in a normal braid

thank you so much ^^

Hi there.

Material of the broach and belt decoration is less important than the final look. As long as they are painted to look right and are of the right size and design you should be fine.

The boots should be a medium brown suede and a simple design. No decorations.

Normal extension would probably be better as they need to be styled into the correct hair style.

For the zip, on mine, I don't need one ! Just pass your head trough the hole of the body. If you really want a zipper you can sew one on the back with a hidden zipper so the zipper is hidden by the collar.

Regarding the seam on the pants, I never actually cut mine, I just turned them inside out, pinched together where I wanted a seam, and sewed it along there - no cutting involved! Wink (Plus, this way, if the seam rips open again, the leggings are still in one piece and you're not showing skin - easier to continue trooping without anyone noticing! Razz )
