I'm in the process of making a ROTJ Mon Mothma, and I was hoping for some input. The attached pictures show the overtunic/cloak and the in process necklaces. I'm not happy with how the magnet setup is currently working, so that will be tweaked to allow the shoulder "brooches" to sit more flush to the fabric and not tilt as much. I haven't attached the middle medal necklace to the shoulder brooches yet because of the needed tweaking, so there may be some odd bits where they are wrapped in the picture. Any other feedback?

It looks like you're off to a great start!

I'm going to move this topic over to the Rebel Commanders form, as Mon Mothma's ROTJ costume does not fall under royalty.

Thanks for that! Much appreciated. I wasn't sure where exactly to post, and the search for "Mon Mothma" threads went to the other forum.

Is the bottom of the brooches flat? It's hard to get it completely flat, but you could try moving them up a little bit so that gravity is not pulling on them.

I sewed washers into the top at the shoulder seams so the brooches sit up on top of my shoulders.



I glued the cords to a circle of plastic to keep it level.

I made more progress- the medallions are now glued to magnets with washers under the over-tunic so the placement can be adjusted. Any last thoughts or suggestions, or should I submit? We'll retake the pictures tomorrow morning in the daylight because these are a bit fuzzy.
