I've been trooping with my Senatorial costume and finally got up upgraded to standard. The belt needs some fixes (like making sure the plates stop falling off), but how's it looking otherwise? Anything obvious that needs adjustment?

Hard to tell from this pic - has one of the plates fallen off there? Smile That must be so annoying! Hopefully you can fix that. Leia Buns

Yup. It's been holding up fine, then suddenly yesterday, 3 plates popped off. Bang Head

Superglue and hot glue have failed, so I'm going to try E6000. If that doesn't hold them, I don't know what will. Fingers crossed!

It looks like the dress is too short, unless you have bunched it a lot in this picture. There also appears to be some pulling along the side split and side seam on the fabric, which you might want to take a look at.
Buns also looks like they could be flatter. Can't see what the rest looks like and some things can shift around when wearing it for a long time, so this might just be issues that occured while wearing it.

Nice dress and good luck with it. Smile

Checking the size of the new bun before I start on the second one.



And compared to the previous version (new one on the left, old on the right):


You're right, Lora. The dress is definitely too short. I made the top too long on the first pass and forgot to make up the difference when I fixed it. XP
Should have the fixes done in a few days.

This is a rough time to be working on this costume. Sending love to all my fellow princesses. <3

Definitely a rough time...

If this helps you at all, there are rivets you can use on the belt. I picked up and used some rivets from Tandy Leather to help keep my plates in place on my belt in addition to E6000. They aren't very long in length at all, and meant for typical leather work.

Good luck and a great Leia you have started!

Those buns are a much better shape. I'd just make sure they were pinned a little higher so they don't look so much like they are hanging below your ears there.

Length, belt, and buns are fixed. After this troop, I added about half an inch onto the sleeves because they felt a little too short and adjusted the collar fastening so the top won't sag backward. Thinking maybe the buns still need to be a small inch higher?

Your buns still look like they're hanging off your head a bit, so I agree they should come up another inch or so.

Remember, you only get one free troop with an unapproved costume (with BCO permission). After that, you need to get your costume approved before you can wear it to an official Legion event again.

Yes, raise them up a little bit and get them to stick closely to the head. Smile
