Hello friends,

I just got my Rose Tico costume approved with Rebel Legion and am incredibly excited to be able to troop in it! Especially with the film coming out next week! That said, I've had a number of people messaging me via social media about whether or not I have a build thread with all my references available. This is going to be that thread. Smile I tried to be as thorough as possible, so I hope that it helps aspiring Roses out there! I would love to see more and more of us out there celebrating our first Asian woman lead in Star Wars! <3 Please, if anyone wants advice or has questions, do not hesitate to ask.


THE BUILD:

Jumpsuit/Coverall:
-Long sleeved with a hood that hits about mid-back.
-Double top-stitching across chest, middle front and back of sleeves, side pant leg seams, front pant seams, back yoke, and down the middles of both the right and left of torso (under the lines of stitching across the chest).
-There is a hood attached to the jumpsuit that curves its shape around the shoulder.
-Pants get tucked in to boots and blouse over the top of boots.
-Pouch with a flap and grey webbing tab on left side of chest with 5 lines of stitching down the middle.
-Rank badge pocket sewn just above this pouch.
-Second, slightly larger pouch pocket on left leg with same opening flap that has 7 lines of stitching on left side and 6 lines of stitching on right side (plus one in the middle), around mid thigh ending just above knee (has a front opening for a comm pad type greeblie). Grey webbing tab on flap like on chest.
-Square patch on ride side chest with Aurebesh "GLD Landing Officer" in three lines and faded down, stitching around edge and an inner square.
-Four loops of a tan/khaki colored webbing on right upper arm.
-Middle section waistband has 5 lines of stitching.
-Color is a sort of brownish yellow/khaki olive green (it changes depending on the lighting) with heavy weathering.

Jumpsuit Resources:

-Pattern used (with modifications for sizing, omissions, additional seams, added pockets): http://www.joann.com/kwik-sew-mens-casual-k3389/13254669.html

-Fabric: https://www.fabric.com/buy/0517626/sanded-brushed-twill-honey

-Dye Formula: Yellow Green #513 https://www.ritdye.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/ColorRit_FINAL.pdf

-Rank badge (I commissioned this one personally, so I vouch for the quality of Ltoycreations’s work since I approved the final product. ): https://www.etsy.com/LToyCreations/listing/542149434/3d-printed-rose-tico-jacket-chest-piece?utm_source=Copy&utm_medium=ListingManager&utm_campaign=Share&utm_term=so.lmsm&share_time=1504570566919

-Belt Greeblies: I made these by hand out of Sculpey clay and grooved rubber pencil grips filled with silicone/caulking from Dollar Tree. Painted with Krylon Chrome Spray Paint and weathered with black acrylic (drybrushing).


-Leg Greeblie: this was modeled and made by a friend as a favor so unfortunately, I don’t have the resources to share on this one.

Belt:
Same sand beige colored military belts as the one worn by TFA Resistance Pilots, worn inside out with the pull tab removed. 5 loops of webbing on each side of belt to hold metal pieces. Open loop with a snap attached to a square piece of belt material to hold her tool.

Buy here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/BRITISH-ARMY-SAND-DESERT-BEIGE-PLCE-WEBBING-BELT-ROLL-PIN-BUCKLE-MILITARY-/301336212202


Boots:
Brown with heavy weathering, about mid calf height or just short of it. There is stitching that grooves and curves around the back heel, front toe, and up the middle stopping around ankle level.

-Boots bought for alteration (in Brown Suede): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01JJ5QCWQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Hair:
Styled into a ponytail. Slightly layered full bangs. Long layers of hair framing face, flipped out at the ends. Electrical wire to tie ponytail (blue and black color with tips stripped).

-Wig (can use “foreversong10” discount code for 10% off because I collaborated with the wig maker!): https://posewigs.com/products/pwhfpai3


Additional Details:


Haysian Smelt Necklace:

Silvery reversed comma-looking pendant with etchings on a silver chain necklace. Details can be found in the Visual Dictionary for The Last Jedi, and there are also clear photos of it from the Stars Wars Launch Bay in Disneyland.


Resistance Ring:
A ring with an iris mechanism that reveals the symbol of the Resistance. Detail can be found in the Visual Dictionary for The Last Jedi.


Taser Tool:
Uses taser that has the appearance of a sort of double screwdriver that is black in the middle and coppery orange on the top and bottom plus on the lower part of the extending silver metal (like rusting). Detail found in the Visual Dictionary for The Last Jedi,

I will eventually get this 3D printed, but for now I made mine from scratch with two Dollar Tree screwdrivers, worbla, craft foam, and hot glue.
