Jyn Erso - Eadu
||Jyn Erso - Eadu
Jyn Erso's costume as seen on in the scene
on Eadu in Rogue One.
Jyn wears a coat that wears like a kimono
in the front and like a poncho in the back. I
patterned and constructed mine the same
way, out of a dark olive cotton, which is
consistent with the costume that was on
display at Celebration 2016 in London.

A note about colors. I referred often to the
amazing photographs taken by
Withoutastitchon and posted to her Flickr
account, seen here:
And while they show amazing detail, the
photographs have been lightened to show
detail since the costume was in such a dark
exhibit hall. The coat is not as light as it
appears in these photos.
I also collected a variety of further
reference images from around the web:
caps, production stills, photos of toys, in
The front wraps right over left with four
rows of topstitching along the right top.
waist has six rows of topstitching. The
lower front below the wast has two large
topstitching details and two snap "backs" at
the bottom center. There is a large pocket
positioned diagonally parallel to the
crossover neckline on the right side. The
has a pocket for a comm pad with two rows
of topstitching on the bottom. Comm pad
is silver metallic and screen accurate.
Seams are flat felled. Both left and right
also have seams placed somewhat like
princess seams, curving near the sides.
The back is a free-flowing poncho, with
tapered ends that hit around mid-knee.
Sleeves are partially contiguous with the
poncho back and have a flat felled
seam. There is no top shoulder seam.
Sleeves are approximately bracelet-length,
the cuffs of the jacket can be seen
Collar is a high mandarin with what appears
like six rows of topstitching, secured with
an approximately 1" flap.
Hood is a 3-piece construction, with front
flap extensions. Left flap extension has a
black screen accurate greebie.
On top of the coat is a bandolier made of
cotton webbing crossing from the right
shoulder to the left hip. The right shoulder
begins with a wider cartridge holder with
five silver cartridges, and a series of screen
accurate buckles and clips connected by a
narrower cotton webbing. Below the
cartridge is a piece of webbing that secures
screen accurate commlink with a single
snap. The bandolier ends at the left hip
bag containing either a silver air tank or a
sidearm peeking out with two large tubes at
the bottom. The bag is in the same color
family as the coat and has twill tape edging
and a green handle and wrapped with 1"
straps, sliders and buckles. Near the bag
the bandolier is a short strap running
parallel to the body that ends in a clip
extendable baton hangs.
A dark brown translucent face mask is worn
around the neck, hanging from a strap
with sliders and clips. The mask has silver
greeblies on each side and connects to the
strap with silver attachments. The mask is
connected to a similarly translucent darkly
colored hose that connects to the left hip
The cap has a pleated top and a flap around
the head that is flipped up and secured
around the head with the strap of a set of
dark-lensed 70s-era ski goggles which also
sit on the cap. The goggles are weathered
and have a leather connection detail on the
strap. Cap is in the same color family as
the coat. On the left temple the hat also
a side lamp clipped to the goggles strap,
with the forward facing lamp section
connected by a wire to the power pack.

The remaining parts of the costume: the
jacket, the pants, the holster, the A180
blaster, the boots, and the gloves, are all
the same pieces from my Legion-approved
