So far I have my patterns and material for the vest and jumpsuit. I went with the Green Pepper patterns. I know that others have said there is a ton of ease in the jumpsuit, but since I am bigger, I figure that it would be easier for me to make a smaller size to compensate for the ease.

I have finished my boots! I wanted to wear them to Disneyland Star Wars night tomorrow, so I was motivated. This is the first time I have ever made footwear.

I started with this base (which are surprisingly comfortable)

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071GVHG4J/

And picked up some grey vinyl and faux suede in the reminants bin at Joanns and got some grey piping.







For now they are just painted with acrylic and a matte top coat. I will see how they hold up tomorrow night.

Those look great! What kind of shoe did you use as a base?

Thanks! I included a link to the base shoe in the first post.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071GVHG4J/

After the test run, I discovered I need to figure out a different way to paint the soles. I think I will give them a light sanding and then use some spray primer before painting the acrylic.

There are a few other little adjustments needed - shoring up some annoying gaps and stitching the tops to the base as an extra precaution.

They held up nice and I was fine in them for the over 5 hours spent at Disneyland.

I also traced and cut out the base pattern for the jumpsuit. I need to figure out how to modify it - alter how the sleeves attach, add prices seams and a yoke in the back.

Progress update.

I lightened the straps on my boots so they are closer to the base color. I hand sewed the spats down to the base shoes. I still want to sew the tongue to the spats to prevent gaping.



I also have a base pattern for my jumpsuit.





I didnít put the piping in the top of the collar or the princess seams. And I didnít do the flap to cover the zipper in this mock up.

Now I need to size the arm and thigh pads.

Got the patterns for the arm and leg pads

Awkward photos because my husband is out of town, so I had to manage by myself.

Donít mind the bunching in the top, I didnít pull it down properly. And I also wonít be quilting with black thread on the actual one 😝





I am keeping the zig zag lines with the same spacing for the pads as well as the quilting on the side of the bodice.

I am also making it 2 pieces with the belt covering the waist. I extended the bodice down (even further in the back) so it will tuck into the pants and not slip out. I will probably also use a bit of Velcro. Here are all my pattern pieces.



I have washed my fabric (a white cotton sateen with 3% spandex) and as soon as it is dry, I am ready to cut into it!

I only have the collar and the front zipper placket left for the top of the jumpsuit.

FYI, the material I am using is a Cotten sateen that I got at Joannís.

Except for the fasteners and the hemming of the sleeves, I have finished the top

Big update!

I am done(ish) and will take submission photos this week.

I forgot to do the hooks at my collar in this picture. They are there. And I plan on fixing the gap in my boot at the ankle.





That is not a seam in the back of the vest, just a fold that I need to steam out. Also you can probably still see some blue fabric marker.



Greeblies



Wig (though this one a tad dark for my taste, so I will be getting a lighter one - I just want to wear this for SDCC)





I also had some pictures with just the jumpsuit, but damn is it unflattering. I do have the boots for Bespin escape (I am just missing the hair), but I donít know if I am going to submit it.

Looking great! You make such fast progress. I agree with sewing the tongue and sides of the spats together. Mine are always slipping apart when I wear them.

FYI, I have been officially approved with this costume! There were no changes needed for the costume at all as submitted, but I did have to restyle my wig.

I donít think I mentioned the fabric that I used for the vest. It was a satin twill in the color eggnog that I got from Joannís. I used the wrong side since the right side was a bit too shiny.

Here are pictures of my restyled wig.
