It looks to me like the belt still needs the twine added.

I don't know much about weathering yet, as I'm still working on my own Rey.
Perhaps someone else who has finished has some tips?

Looking good! I like your colors together.

You do need to add some weathering. When weathering, think about what gets dirty and shows wear first in real life: the edges of things and the sweaty bits :-) So, for Rey, I would want to see the edges of your arm wraps darkened especially (I use gray dye dabbed onto the edges because I'm lazy and only wanted to do it once. You can also use brown/gray eye shadow, oil pastels, charcoal, wood ash, etc.).

You'll also want to weather your shirt. The color is really nice as is, so I wouldn't tea dye it, but you can use makeup, watered down acrylic paint, oil pastels, etc. Focus on the parts that would be sweaty in real life: so, darken the under arms, along the seams, and especially around the collar and back of the neck. I recently re-weathered my Jakku shirt after washing it. I just used cheap dollar store makeup (pressed powder foundation in a darker skin tone) and a big fluffy kabuki brush (also from the dollar store!). You can see a before and after and some of my tools here: https://www.instagram.com/p/Be4NapzFY8M/?taken-by=jeniwan_kenobi

I would also suggest that you practice putting your costume on and making sure your wrap dress is laying as nicely as it can be. This really does take practice, and for me I had to keep staring at pictures of Rey while dressing myself, and looking at photos of myself next to Rey to get it right. It looks like your wrap is twisting and bunching a bit, and you want to make sure it is crinkled but otherwise laying flat and covering your chest evenly. Again, this is just practice and then tightening up the belt. But you want it to look as nice as possible when you take your submission photos and start trooping :-D

You're doing great and I am looking forward to seeing your finished costume!
