Hi all.

My daughter is an avid cosplayer, and is embarking on a journey to get an approved x wing pilot outfit. Hope to see some of you at Oak City comic con and other events in the future.

She’s got lots of questions on some of the uniform parts, esp. how to source some of the harder to find pieces (she wants to make as much of it as she can) ... so I’ll probably pop in here for advice.

Look forward to meeting you guys in person (if we haven’t already at Oak City / Bull City)

Hi! Welcome!

Is your daughter on Facebook? There are build groups that often have resources identifying where to source things. I can try to hunt down the appropriate links if she is.

She doesn’t often, so I front that.

BTW ... very local to you it seems ... we are in Cary

According to people who know more about this than me, rebel pilot Facebook group is here -
https://www.facebook.com/groups/520370295014245/

Resistance pilots are here - https://www.facebook.com/groups/1773531882866305

I'm not sure what type of X-wing pilot y'all are building, but build groups tend to be super useful for answering weird questions like "where do I find this obscure thing?" It sounds like she has an account and just doesn't use it often, but she can always just pop in when she has a question. I'm not part of these groups, but other build groups I'm in, everyone wants to help you succeed, so I don't see why these would be any different.


And yup. I am in Cary. I might be at Oak City on Sunday? That's still a question mark.

An excellent source for X-Wing Pilot parts is Darth Hair (Jeff Rodriguez). Both him and his wife make all the parts for the costume and they are generally reasonable with their prices.

Thanks all

She really wants to make as much as she can. Right now though she's a bit stuck on the white vest. I've posted in the costume area; not finding any decent patterns or guidance on how to best do the channels, spacing, etc. and winging it is ... frustrating ;-)
