Nice progress! I remember the pain of drafting sixteen million different attempts for the mantles and hood, and even now four years later, I still occasionally find discarded prototypes, haha.

The lower mantle looks great, and I like how you're doing the collar - I look forward to seeing the full version of that when it's done.

For the upper mantle and hood, I think my personal preference would be for your first option - I think it would look tidier, and knowing how hot my costume gets around the upper chest and neck, adding extra layers is not something I'd recommend! That being said, I'm sure you could pull either version off. For the hood shape, I'd pick either the KotOR ref or the SWGOH ref rather than combining both. If going for the KotOR style and putting the hood up, use the Darth Revan model as a reference for the hood shape, as Darth and Star Forge started from roughly the same place.
As for hood length, you might want to do some of your armour design before finalising that, as I'd say that the best guide for how long it should be would be the patterning on the armour:

From your photo, I think it might be a bit too long at the moment? The point should around the same level as the chest circumference, just below the armpits.

Your Verpine headband is looking amazing, that red looks so good! Can't wait to see it fully assembled.

Good luck with the next bits!

Thanks for the input, Dangams!!

I am surprised that you would prefer Option 1, as I legit didn't think it would be allowable. But I am totally fine with that, if you are directing me that way! I think then, what I'm calling the cowl could be renamed to the Upper Mantle.

Maybe I will make the other version as well, simply because this is the start of that time of year where having a lot of layers would be really nice... Laughing

I am thinking, though, if I go with Option 1, that I will probably put that collar on a dickey, to sit underneath the LM + hood/cowl. I would be worried about having so many layers in 1 seam section. That would probably be bulky!

Thank you for the Darth Revan suggestion! I would really prefer to stay as in game in Kotor as possible, since to me that is my preferred version of this story. (Because then I get to be Revan Very Happy ) I definitely wouldn't have thought to look to the dark side version, since it's a different costume design, but I like the hood look far better. It seems to make more sense, practically, as well. If I were fighting, I probably wouldn't want to be restricted by the hood tucked in!

Cool! I think I've got the mantles designs figured out!

It's funny you should include that reference photo. A few hours after I posted my update, I wondered why I hadn't just looked at the reference photos for the hood length while I was studying that cowl portion. I will definitely take your suggestion, and look to the armor pattern. Leather is ordered!

Thanks so much! Very Happy

You're very welcome!

One other thing I'd add about the hood design is that what I did (and what I'd recommend for the KotOR version) is to focus on getting the shape when the hood is down correct, and then adapt that to allow yourself to wear it up.

Good luck!

I agree that the hood looks a bit too long right now. Smile But your progress looks great! Those resin parts have a lovely shade of red.

I think I prefer option 2. The design just seems to match references better.
