I'm working on Leia's Senatorial Gown for future approval and would like another set of eyes.

I have boots on the way and hair extensions to do the buns. The belt is in progress and I have aluminum plating for that.

The dress itself is self lined Jet set. I need to add the hook and eye closures and it will be complete.

My husband is not very good at being my second set of eyes with costuming, so I need the help of you awesome people here on the forum!

Thank you a million!

You seem to have the basic shape down for the gown. Smile Is the belt you wear now what you are going to use? Because that looked too cream, but could be dyed.

Thank you for lending me your eyes! I appreciate it.

The belt is a white vinyl, but because I only have one layer of it cut I had flipped it around so the edges wouldn't pull the jet set. It's a very white vinyl though on the right side. Smile

Excellent. Smile Have you had time to continue your work on this? Would love to see new pictures.

I would have posted sooner, but finals are upon me and things have been crazy! Rolling Eyes

I completed Leia, but am already planning upgrades.

I found the boots from a lady on Mercari. I have big calves, so I had to cut down the back a bit and add some elastic.

I made the belt from two layers of marine vinyl. The closure is 4 snaps covered with the 8th metal plate. The metal plates are made of aluminum sheeting and the circles in the center are button cover bases.

I used extensions from Arda wigs to make my buns. There are 2-24'' extensions in each one.

I'm really hoping she will be approved once I submit her. But first, I have to get some good photos of her. The only photo I have not taken with a mirror, my 9 year old took for me.

Please, tell me what you think?!

Not bad. Smile The curve on the belt is a bit sharp/low, but should be fine for approval.

I had some photos done today, but could not make it inside to the area with the black wall I had originally planned on using for the photos. Could you perhaps give me advice on whether or not this will be ok? If not, I will have a chance later to get a simpler setting.

Thank you!

Should be no problem Wink The reason why the unicolor background is requested is to be able to easily cut pics to insert them in the frames for the roster. In this case, it's not complicated I'ld say.
For judging, it is good to have nothing behind, and no one else or so, so it's clear what is the costume and also get good contrast with the background. But it's not critical to get an unicolor background Wink
