Hello!
I never finished updating this. Boot progress. I added a hidden zipper inside the tongue, then glued the darker straps down with more Barge. On the bottom of the shoe in the arch area I added Sugru to seal and help support the material. It also gave it that nice wedge appearance.





I was approved about a week before we left on our big Norway trip. Hooray! It was perfect timing as we had planned a huge meetup with Blizzard Force. We met up with about 20 Snowtroopers from around the globe in Finse. We stayed in the same hotel where they filmed a lot of the Hoth scenes, which was a dream come true! Unfortunately our trip was overshadowed by Covid, but we still had a fabulous time, and had perfect luck with the weather on the days we did photos.


Gorgeous Hoth.

I also decided to go with a wig as I am blonde. I ordered a beautiful lace-front wig from Epic Cosplay Wigs. I ordered the Nemesis in light brown, and I was very pleased with the color. This wig ended up having a looot of hair, which made the braids far too thick. I ended up taking about half the wefts out of the wig, and even then I still had to separate it into three braids instead of two. But I really liked the end result!






We had a lot of fun recreating some of the original film crew photos.

We did have to cut our trip short by about a week, and we made it out the country right as the borders closed. It was pretty crazy. Too bad I still haven't had a chance to officially troop in this costume yet, but hopefully when life gets back to normal!

Lovely photos! Very Happy (And I like the casual Amidala in the background in the first).

I will also say that 'too much hair' is not something you usually hear when it comes to Leia; it's usually too little! Laughing
