She has registered for the boards (waiting to be activated). We are looking to due for her Padme's Goenosis costume. Any help or advise would be great. Hopefully her account will be active soon..

Thanks Edakin

What help are you looking for with the costume? We have many members who have done the Geonosis costume. Smile

I am needing to buy some of the same fabric for the top, so could pick up extra, I have also created a highly accurate pattern that should be adjustable. I don't feel comfortable offering to help with the pants (though I do have some fabric that is the same as used- a mechanical stretch twill in cotton). The main problem is that fabric has slightly less give and the pants are very well fitted. So not much room for making adjustments to fit, and the seat seam of every woman is different, it's one of the resons off the peg pants rarely fit- the other is that corners are cut in the cutting process to make most use of fabric, the usual trick is to take fabric from the inside leg and move it to the outer...*

Anyway, if your wife has semi fitted pants that fit her comfortably it is possible to take a pattern.

I also passed on all my cloak and hood fabric, however that is so heavy as to make it incredibly costly to chip from where I live.

*If anyone is having this issue, I recommend simply turning the pants inside out, put one leg in to the other and look at the seat seam (the seam joining the two sides, goes from waist front under the torso to the back waist.
The shape should be a U, sew a longer U without taking away from the sides of the U then clip. This is nearly always a help. It's usually not a case of pants being too tight but too short in the torso. I do this and all my pants now fit me very well. It does shorten the legs a little but ultimately this is a boon!

Edward, I saw this site:
http://www.starfortressproductions.com/swtherebellion.html

The far right of the screen shows the items they have for sale. They sell the costume but I didn't see a picture so I can't tell you how good/bad it might be. They do have the utility belt, boots, armbands, good luck charm necklace available for purchase right now. Pistol is a back order item according to their site.

Starfortress Productions is to be avoided like the plague for a variety of reasons. They're seriously bad news.

Mosi has done a lot of the accessories in the past. Here's his sale thread - http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=31541

Bummer... I'm going to delete the pictures then. No sense in making things difficult.
