Hey Rebels!

Your local Delta-40 here. Looking to enlist some help. Ever since FanX18 my wife has wanted to have a Legion approvable Jyn Erso costume and possible even join our ranks.
Back in September, and without the knowledge I have now, I reached out to ANOVOS in regards to their full Jyn Erso ensemble which will include everything except the boots, scarf, and poncho. Just this last month ANOVOS has gotten back to me and says that the order is ready and just in need of payment before shipping.
My question for you is; do I go ahead and order from ANOVOS for a total of $502.49? Or are there others here with such legendary sewing skills that might be willing to help me?
If I go with ANOVOS, then I do have to do so before 6PM Saturday the 15th.
Jan
Thank you!

Regards,
RC-72954

It would be great to have her join us, I hope all goes well.

Biggest issue with Anovos is wait time. I'm not familiar with their Jyn pieces.

Brita would be happy to help, but it wouldn't be that fast and she's not done Jyn before.

If Brita would be willing to help, that would be awesome!

I figured with ANOVOS we wouldn't see the costume until the spring, which would actually work out as it gives my wife time to recover after having the baby. But I guess one of the things we're worried about is sizing...

Can check. Might also see if Drew or another is interested in helping you make this costume.

Devaron Base member here. Your post caught my eye because I'm in more or less the same boat. My wife is considering a Jyn costume but neither of us can sew.

Going from personal experience, I'd read the Anovos email very carefully and make extra sure they are saying it is in hand ready to ship. I waited 2 years for 2 helmets from them before cancelling.

The other question is: is the Anovos Jyn approvable, or how much work would it need to become so?

I'm going to try to find someone in the base or legion to do a commission, and I'm following along here too.

Yeah, we've decided to forgo the costume from Anovos and instead look at Etsy and what other approved Jyns have done.

check out the Facebook Jyn Erso Costuming Group called Stardust Sisters. Its a closed group but I think all I did was request membership. I dont think its lady's only but definately Jyn costume build and wear only conversation.
I was checking on it for my wife a while back. Its a great place to start and find answers.
Good luck! Would love to have your wife join in the fun. Smile

We took a brief hiatus from this idea, but now we may be ready to attempt this again. I'm planning to get her the scarf and vest and see if that will help spark her interest to finish it out.

Would you and Brita be willing to help with some of the sewing? I think you offered before, and my sewing skills are not as on par as I'd care to admit.

Probably, I'll check with her when she gets home.
