Hi y'all! I am slowly putting together an Endor Leia. This forum has been an INCREDIBLE resource!

I finished the poncho in a rush last week so my friend could wear it to a con. I need to repaint it in places, particularly on the sides. I'm not sure if the Basil is a light/bright enough green?




I'm a new sewer, and the hood took me a LONG time to figure out, and it's still not pretty. I may need to redo it all or fix it so it gathers more evenly. I also need to add the slits.



A friend helped me reassemble the Rubie's blaster, and I picked up some 2" dark gray twill on Etsy that I'm going to dye green for the belt. I have a pattern and fabric for the pants, I just need to get motivated to cut out the pieces!

These are the boots I'm planning on. Slip on, but they do have some seams. Would these work?

Great job on the poncho! I think it looks great. However, I was told my poncho colors were "too muted" initially so perhaps double check with a judge or 2 before adding any additional color? It's easy to make things darker but not so easy to go light.

Good luck on your build!

Looks like a good start. Smile I'm a bit concerned about the stitching lines on the boots; they are pretty visible and where there shouldn't be any stitching lines. Personally I'd look for different boots without such stitching lines.
