Hello,

I'm completely new but have always wanted to find a way to use my love of cosplay and fandom for charity.
I am starting a Hera Syndulla build based on her season 3/4 outfit, and was wondering if Echo Base had a preferred material for the straps that hang from her overalls and from those of the rebel flight suits/similar uniforms.

I had identified a handful that would work well from strapworks but wanted to check and make sure if there wasn't a preferred one for uniformity etc, despite Hera not wearing the actual flight suit, but something that 'in universe' probably came from the same or similar manufacturer for all we know.

I was wondering the same thing about materials for the actual orange portion as well. Hera's is a different shade of orange (much more yellow) than the standard flight suit, so I was looking into heavy weight cottons/treating it as an entirely different animal than the rebel flight suits but I was curious if there was a preferred material choice.



Thank you for your time and help!

2 inch wide Silver/Gray nylon from Strapworks for the Belt/Ejection Harness is what I have always suggested.

Your mileage may vary. Wink
