I just checked out the reference images you have -- I have a few more that you don't have posted -- would you guys like me to send them to you, or post a link? Also, I've found two decent hair tutorials that give fairly accurate instructions. Just wanting to make sure anyone working on this one has all the info possible Smile

One question regarding the back collar seam -- are you referring to a vertical seam that joins the halves of the collar (in line with the back seam of the coat), or a seam attaching it to the coat (but only in the back). I haven't seen a seam attaching it to the coat, so if that's what it's referring to, I'm wondering what specific reference image that is in regards to?

Anyway, thanks for all the hard work and getting this all in writing! I'm off to work on my version 2 Smile


If you could send your photos to Lora that would be great.

The coat back has a center seam, then the coat collar on the back is a separate piece. It is not a separate piece in the front- the front sections are all cut out of one section of fabric with no seams. I have not seen a photo of this in magazines or promo images but it is visible in the film- waiting for screenshots of the film to become available.

Ok so our proposal with the fabric description edit for The Last Jedi Leia- Raddus Bridge Gown.

I know the movie is new however with so many people making the costume I wanted to start a formal detail discussion so costumers and judges had a place to reference important details. Hope it is helpful! Lets get this going!

1) Outer Coat
a. Thehe coat should be made of a black or very dark gray fabric woven silver metallic fabric. The fabric should weave should give the impression of a neat square pattern.
b. The fabric must be rigid enough such that the collar and sleeves stand stiff when worn. The collar and front sections of the coat should be self-lined
c. The coat features a shoulder seam, mid back seam, side seam, and back collar seam. There is no collar seam on the front portions of the coat
d. The coat has a standing collar that hits just under the hairline in back and no more than 1 inch from the bottom of the chin in front
e. The coat sleeves should angle up from the body, starting 3-4 inches/7.6-10 cm past the fingertips close to the torso and ending about half way between the wrist and proximal knuckle. The sleeve is folded kimono style and is attached to the main coat just under the armpit in front and at the lower shoulder blade in back. The sleeves can be self-lined or lined with black fabric
f. The coat length should reach or be no higher than .5 inches/1.3 cm off of the floor

2) Under Dress
a. A light charcoal gray under dress
b. The dress is long sleeved and has no top-stitching around the bottom hem, belt band, sleeves or neckline
c. The dress features a front center seam.
d. The dress features a split neckline, the top of the neckline starts at the clavicle and the split extends down roughly 4 inches/10 cm
e. The dress is gathered at the front at empire waistline level
f. There is a front band 1.5 to 2 inches/3.8-5 cm wide at empire waistline level starting under one side breast and extending across the front of the dress and ending at the opposite side breast.
g. The sleeves of the dress end at wrist level and the bottom hem of the dress ends 2 inches from the floor.

3) Hair
a. The front of the hair is styled swept back in front with a twisted band across the top of the head
b. There is a bouffant style hair bump at the crown of the head approximately 3 inches/ 7.6 cm in height
c. The front twisted band is hidden on the sides by sections of hair above the ears – these sections are pinned under the bouffant hair in the back of the head
d. There are two low loose buns pinned to the bottom of the hairline covering the back of the head horizontally. The buns start vertically at the half-way point of the ear and ending at the half-way point of the neck
e. Naturally-occurring hair color only (brown with a touch of gray recommended); no bangs. If a wig or extensions are used, they must be of high quality and appear like real hair

4) Shoes
a. Black round-toe boots with dark soles

5) Jewelry
a. Screen accurate gold or bronze ear cuffs that curl around the lower ear lobe and extend up the back of the ear
b. A screen accurate gold or bronze wrist cuff approximately 3 inches/7.6 cm wide worn on the right wrist consisting of a thin wired effect. The wrist cuff should feature a gradual wave pattern
c. A screen accurate gold or bronze ring with two circular blue stones worn on the right ring finger
d. A screen accurate gold or bronze blue tone oval ring worn on the left ring finger

Optional Items:
1) A screen accurate tracking device worn on the left wrist colored to match visual references and held with a ¼ inch/.6 cm black chord.
2) Natural make-up: matte red-brown lipstick, light blush, light brown eye-shadow, and mascara

I do think there actually may be some top stitching on the 'belt' band under the bust. If you look at these two images (one is BTS, and the other is the Sideshow figure), it appears that the band does have top stitiching. Thoughts?

There is none visible in the photo in the visual dictionary which is what I am inclined to trust over the figure. The first photo is not high res enough to be definitive either way.

Thank you everyone for your detailed contributions to these standards. I am moving them to the detachment for finalization, so please continue the discussion there.
