Return of the Jedi
DescriptionI recently took out my Boushh costume and realized just how much I've grown as a seamstress as I noticed about a billion mistakes in the soft parts of the costume. I plan on wearing this costume to Wondercon next year, and I need to:
re-make belt buckle: my old one was made when I was just learning how to work with plastics. I'll be remaking it with worbla.
order leather belt blank: my old belt was from a thrift store...and you could kind of tell. I'll also be re-purposing my leather Jedi belt pouch, which is technically not an accurate thermal detonator pouch, but it's the perfect size for my phone, etc. and it'll be under the cape.
re-make inner tunic: my old tunic was horrendously inaccurate--I plan on re-making the main body with a roughly woven cotton and have suede sleeves with fosshape to hold the spikes up properly.
re-make outer tunic: again, the general shape is wrong. I'll be re-drafting this pattern based upon the one I used for my Jedi costume.
re-make pants: it hurts me to do so, since this was the first major project I was really proud of, but the pleats are incorrect (they're supposed to be rouched!), I'm missing a major seam on the front, and the proportions are wrong. At least I'll know what to do this time, and I'll have fun weathering them ;)
re-make spats: this will be my third time making them, but holy cow was I off in terms of top stitching >.<
Attach commlink to shoulder armor: it turns out the commlink attaches with a piece of webbing. That actually makes a LOT more sense, haha.
touch up all armor: everything just needs some very minor touch ups :)
There are no photos in this costume yet.
