My husband's vanguard was approved yesterday. I think that it is the first vanguard that was approved since this CS exists. It is definitely the first one at the German Base Yavin.

I finished my gaiters this morning. Mine were a little tricky to make because of the shape of my calves. The top opening is 54cm and the bottom opening is only 40cm.

Here are some photos. Mine are the ones on the left. On the right are my husband's gaiters.

I just could not motivate myself to work on my seminar paper today. Instead, I finished my holster. My costume is now complete. My husband is going to take my photos this weekend.

Thank you. Cool, the more Vanguards the better. I was a little bit worried about the holster when I made the prototype, but the olive canvas version turned out great. The two layers of iron-on fusible interfacing and the canvas from the MIL-TEC duffel bag that I cut up made a huge difference in the end.

I just checked my Emails and found out that my Rebel Vanguard was approved yesterday evening. My husband and I will be wearing it for the first time at LuxCon in Luxembourg on the 14th of April. It is our first official event for this year. LuxCon was also the first event I wore my RFT ANH in 2017.

My husband wore his vanguard for the first time at FARK 2019 yesterday. FARK is a huge charity event in Saarland, Germany. From Friday to Sunday there were about 55,000 visitors and we were able to collect 107,579.00 Euros for charity. We cannot wait for the next FARK in 2021.

Looks great! Loving those gloves. And that's a ton of donations--what a big event!

Thanks. It is nice to hear you like the gloves because my husband did not like them or the gaiters. It was about 30°C (86°F), and the gloves are suitable for the winter season, so his hands were a little bit too warm.

Yes, FARK is a big event. It is a Fantasy and Roleplay Convention that does not charge an admission fee, instead they ask for donations. It makes visiting this convention a family event that is affordable for everyone. Most of the parking lots in the area were also free. It is a three-day party with live music, great food, and many interesting people. My husband and I visited FARK 2014. We have never seen anything like it. We got infected with the FARK virus and have been a part of every FARK since.
