Yeah, I'm in the 'wouldn't be close enough' group, too. The pattern is nice, but too far off from the movie.
The cloak is very nice though and with the balaclava you can forego wig and headpiece. Wink

It's done!
Well, the fabric parts are done. Feedback welcome. Once I get the headpiece from my commissioner, or decide to create a back-up version out of worbla, I'll be submitting this.

It looks great. Smile For pictures I'd drape the hood a bit more over the shoulders since that's how we generally see it in the movie, but that's just a little thing you can consider for taking photos.

Also, just so you are aware; the lighting in these pictures makes the silver look very dark, so make sure you have the best possible lighting when the time comes to take submission photos. Smile Might as well do everything you can to make sure the costume looks its absolutely best. Wink (Even better if you have an assistant to help make sure everything stays in place).

Thanks so much!

Which silver, the silver piping trim?
The fleur-de-lis stamps, or whatever the f-like shape is, are supposed to be grey not silver. The standards claim silver metallic but I don't think they're correct.

I can't see the image you're linking, but yes, it was the f shapes I was thinking of. Smile

Hmm, I wonder what failed in the link.

The stamps might be lighter grey than mine looks in the photos of my costume, but I definitely don't think it's metallic.

Don't know what happened. That one worked. Smile

But a light grey/silver does seem to both work. And lighting conditions will affect how a color reads, so that is always something to be mindful of. (I've seen both underexposed and overexposed causing problems in applications due to messing with how the colors look so it's something I try to remind people of fairly often).

I'm definitely not looking forward to getting a good color photo of this; as with the original it looks different under different lighting. Which is good, because it's a good replica, but it's hard to capture!

Fantastic draping on the skirt. That all turned out great!

Yeah, if all else fails just get some extra photos showing it in different lighting conditions as an extra. Smile The costume did turn out well.
