Hi guys! I'm new and decided to get in touch after seeing the legion at the Motor City Comic Con. I want to join and I decided I wanted to do Padme's lake gown. I have a couple of questions. Can I buy one or do I have to make it myself.

Hi there, I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter as long as its accurate. I've definitely met some rebel legion folks who didn't make their own costume.

Can anyone steer me towards finding someone who could make it?

If you can find a good seamstress you can buy one, just keep in mind that it will have to be fitted to you.

And welcome to the legion. Smile I've found it's easier to navigate when I unpack one section at a time by clicking on them.

Jumping on this thread. I have the dress and the headbands etc. I just need help with the armbands and necklace. Does anyone know the best way to make them and/or can recommend someone to commission for them?

QueenPadme, I have seen a few sellers on etsy that make the dress, though not all of them would pass Legion standards. If you are thinking about one of the sellers, feel free to post a link here and we can look it over before you spend any money.

LeiaAurora, I found this tutorial that looks like it might be useful: http://tracyscostumingworld.weebly.com/lake-dress.html If it were me, I would probably try to make them out of fun foam and/or worbla as a base, then paint and add the mother-of-pearl details.

I would have to second the worbla idea. That's what I made mine out of! It's a lot of work to smooth out the texture, but it's very worth it!

This how I've made one for my girlfriend:


It's mostly metal.

I bought a sheet of anodised aluminium at a local DIY store: http://www.leroymerlin.fr/v3/p/produits/tole-lisse-aluminium-anodise-l-100-x-l-20-cm-x-ep-0-8-mm-e1400097574#&xtmc=tole_anodise&xtcr=20

Necklace:
Then, I cuted it to correct dimensions, and glue all part to a foam base, to have a volume. The sheet itself is too thin.
Then, I glue on it a "Mother of pearl" adhesive sheet I found on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/transaction/196094010
I also bought a small chain, http://www.cultura.com/chaine-70cm-ext-dore-burnish-chaine-70cm-ext-dore-burnish-3661269057104.html and glue to the necklace two hook and pass the chain around.

Armband:
For armband, it's the same sheet of metal, same sheet of mother of pearl. Each armban was left twisted a week to keep the shape, and then each end was glued with a special metal glue.

.


What dimensions did you get for the mother of pearl sheet? I'm looking at some on Etsy now. Also, for the anodised aluminum, did the 1 sheet of 11 x 20 cover both necklace and arm bands or should I get 2-3 sheets?

They sell it as a sheet. I only use one.
The same for the aluminium, only one sheet was used. But I was very carefull and optimize the position of parts for the cut.

I made my first attempt (w/o using Mother of Pearl laminate) and it seems to be going in the right direction. However, the glue I am using JB Weld, is not holding it in place. Is there a better glue you can recommend?
