I finally decided to make this lovely outfit Leia wore at Crait. My plan is to make the underdress and tentacle ring myself, hire my favourite seamstress to make the coat (she already said yes!), and order the rest of jewelry online.

I'd love to have it ready for EpIX, or if real life strucks, for Comic Con Prague (February).

These are my fabrics. The left one is a poly/cotton blend thin suiting, the right one is a black poly bouclé with silver lurex threads. It even looks like diamonds when looking from a distance Smile Not sure why it looks somehow blue on the picture (but that could be my monitor settings).

For the dress pattern I used my old "late medieval" semi-fitted dress. The only mod was a higher neckline.




edit: This was my fabric: https://www.glitzerpueppi.com/Boucle-Fabric-Glitter-Brown-Black I used its reverse side as my right side and dyed the dress black with iDye Poly.

Always nice to have a pattern that can be reused. Smile

Hello!!
I am putting together this outfit too!! I always thought it was beautiful from the first time I saw it. since it's my first Star Wars outfit, I order if from a cosplay company who hand makes their costumes, and it should be here shortly. Since then, I've been taking my time on the jewelry. The two moon ring and earrings I ordered. The tentacle ring is coming along and the bracelet.

I will have my submission ready soon!!

Best wishes!!
Christina

I was at a fitting session at my dressmaker's place. My coat should be ready this Friday! Dance Chewie


The collar top is folded here the same way as presented at the costume exhibit.


It stands! The collar had just one layer plus interfacing at the moment. When put up properly, it hides half of my ear.

I also tried to make my tentacle ring out of Apoxie Sculpt, a "gold" ring base and iridescent blue glass cabochon. It's this one: https://www.dobeado.com/czech-glass-cabochon-25x18mm-mandarin (it's blue IRL). Using the ring base was a bad idea as it makes the stone stick up too much. Version 2 it is. Confused

Thanks to my beading mastermind friend I knew what to buy for my bracelet! Here's the list:

1 bendable "gold" snake necklace
12 round metal beads (original has barrel beads but we weren't lucky finding those)
10 glass faceted rondelles in smoke gray
4 metal rondelles
a pair of ribbon clamps with a lobster clasp and a small piece of a chain (can be bought as one piece or separate pieces)
thick elastic cord



The bendable snake is actually metal "scales" on an elastic cord. When you cut the cord, they will fly in all directions! Very Happy Better cut your snake inside a big box.



Trying my snake rondelles. I liked the smaller more.







Mmm... shiny! Cool
