This character intrigues me. The more I read the EU books and the comics etc, the more I am finding amazing female characters that I love.

I was reading through the standards and they aren't too specific. I had a few questions before I finish up my costume and submit.

These are the boots I ordered. A bunch of Juno's on the 501st side have used them and been approved with them for 501st so I'm hopeful they will also be approved for RL.



Also, the standard main reference photo shows Juno wearing her Imperial hat with rank bar and greeblies but they are not listed as needed for this costume for us. Is that still accurate?


I also purchased these gloves. Are they approvable? They seem to fit what is required but just wanted to make sure.


Lastly, the hair color. Yes, Juno is a blonde and I am perfectly fine with wearing a wig. However, it is not stated anywhere in the standard that I need to be blonde to be approved, just have a natural hair color.Is this also correct?

Well, receveived the gloves and they are perfect! The boots, not so much. While I could get them on, they were extremely tight around the calf and there was no way I could get them on with the pants on. There was simply no give to them, unfortunately.

I bought this pattern to make the blazer with.


It pretty much has everything I need seam wise for it as well as the collar. I plan on using View A and just shortening the sleeves and not adding the pockets. I'll be using black bottomweight twill and lining it with black Kona cotton from JoAnn's.

I have a wig that I used for Ellie Sattler/Matt the Radar Technician so I will just style it for the updo and I should be set other than the boots.

Does anyone know where I can get approvable boots?

Hello fellow Juno hopeful! I'm working on mine as well (for both 501st and Rebel Legion approval). I got my boots from Soviet Boots.com. I haven't received them yet, but I asked around in the Ladies of the Legion FB group, as I have large calves and 99% of all boot options out there wouldn't fit over my legs in a million years.

Lots of ladies suggested those boots and I've seen several people with approved costumes wearing them as well. This is the link to the ones I got: http://www.sovietboots.com/home/10-soviet-officer-riding-leather-boots-501st.html
