Alright so I'm also working on my own Leia build.

Made a bedsheet mockup today. Went fine only the armpit is too high. But yeah took like a minute to sew together. I bet with my real fabric it'll take like a couple hours. Super easy. Can't wait!

Not picked the fabric out yet but I've gotten a lot of great tips...from you guys. Probably going to line it because it sounds like a good idea.

Turns out 60" fabric is going to be fine for me. Apparently I have short arms.

For the belt I'm looking at various options. The forerunner of which is using floor mat painted white. We'll see if I can find Vinyl and change my mind. I feel like I'll be re-making this a few times XD

My current boots are terrible and a stand in until I manage to get some decent ones.

Bought the Arda 'Leia' wig since I dunno what color I want my hair half the time. Got progress on that at least!



I'm excited. I'm planning to wear this to a comic book store opening in a couple weeks. There's gonna be a Chewbacca. Score.

Whelp its a crappy picture but I restyled the wig. NO EXTENSIONS BABY



There are two things I had to do with this. First, I had to curl the ends because they stuck out stick straight. The Leia wig is heat resistant so this wasn't an issue. Second, rather than one big bun, it's actually made up of an inner and outer bun. By dividing the pigtail, I made the inner bun then wrapped the other half of it around giving it a gentle twist as I did so.

And then pinned the bejesus out of it.

You are right. My 'no extensions' brag means nothing without me wearing it! Pictures are still terrible. I'll get more when I'm in my Leia costume next weekend (Y'know. After I finish it XD))




(Hair out of place. Gotta pin that sucker down)
