Character/Costume Description

Rey, a scavenger from the planet, Jakku.
(from episode VII - The Force Awakens)

The fabric is a jersey cotton, the shirt has v
neck, and cap sleeves. The v neck is
finished by rolling the fabric to the inside
and top-stitching (all made by hand). The
undershirt is below the hips.

I don't know the exact name of the fabric,
because I found this fabric by luck, but I
think its silk viscose. Edges are not finished
to be more authentic.

/UPDATE: I dyed the fabric with a mixed
fabric color (a minimum portion of half
taube and half irongrey for 20 seconds light
bath) as the jury requested./

Grey Rayon/Silk. Cuffs are finished with two
strips each that wrap around the outside of
each cuff several times and tie up with each
other. Ends are tucked under. (So it can be
wear as it was seen in the Museum Exhibit

Handmade from real leather. Fastens with
rectangle rings and twine.

[Arm wraps]
Stretch medical bandages, with detailed

Handmade from real leather, dyed to have
the other side different color.

/side note: from the undershirt to the
bracer, all the fabrics and clothes has dyed
by a Hungarian specialist, who is working
for theaters to make fabrics look antic,
really old or used. I am really thankful to

Found in my brother wardrobe (:D), but it
was bought in a military shop years ago.
Modified and dyed by me to replicate Rey's
bag. Alice clip bought in a military shop.

Totally handmade, from a crochet boots and
wool fabric, which has dyed to dark brown
with fabric color. Little parts made from real
leather. (My mother and I, we gave our
blood to make these. :D)

Because I'm poor and don't have 3D printer
or buy the pieces from others, I made the
staff with papier mache technik. The base is
a same length wood stick, like the original
one (because the height of Daisy and mine
is the same). To this wood stick I made the
staff bones from cardboard and cover it
paper with the papier mache technique.
The little details made from different things
I found at home (like match, cable,
plasticine, dishwasher plastic pipe, twine
and my heart :D) ((making the staff was
the best part of the work)

/side note: I made the googles
(authentically with trooper googles) and the
head wrap, but I need some more detail
(like lamp on the googles, gloves,
backpack, canteen) so I do not apply with
them now./
