Thanks. That seems like the best option to me to.

Outfit is really taking shape now. I had to switch to a different gray material, a thicker yoga pant knit and it has been working like a dream. I love my leggings now!

Shirt is coming along well too. Had to put a back seam on both parts of the gray, upper and lower, but my instructor and I didn't see any other option. I'm just going to chalk up any difference to animation impracticality.

Also finished my first try at the chest box. I found some nesting doll style paper mache coffins that gave me the trapezoid shape I needed. I may need to go one size down though.

Hope to link pics of all this soon.

Here is my current progress:

Sorry the leggings look so dark. Bad lighting. Nor do I have the right boots on.

First version of the shirt turned out too big. Razz Plus neckline is wrong and the "Y" shape didn't turn out right. Any advice for the next attempt would be helpful.

Need to lighten up the belt I think with paint.

The silver trapezoids are for the ones on the shirt collar.

I like how the chest box turned out. But I need to make a smaller one I think. Won't know for sure until the shirt is done though.

My instructor now has only limited availability so sewing progress may slow a bit. Going to paint my boots and work on the hair in the meantime.

You are right; the grey looks very dark.

Regarding the collar it looks like there is too much fabric there. Not sure what to do without adding a seam somewhere.

Sigh, after three classes the shirt is still not fitting together correctly. Why is this shirt the current bane of my existence? :-( I think it is the double problem of doing a two-tone shirt with only a back seam. This feels a little beyond my current skill level. Even my instructor can't figure it out and suggested maybe working on something else. I feel like if this shirt had side seams, I would be done by now.

The only solution I can think of for Lothal Leia at this point would be to find or make a plain cream shirt with the proper back seam and sew the gray part over top of it. But at this point, I need a break from this build.

I am not giving up on Lothal Leia. But for now, I am putting this build on hiatus. I think my time and money is better spent working on a different costume. In working on a Leia costume in general, I came to realize I had a good portion already of what I needed for ANH Senator Gown Leia, which should be much easier to do being the most commonly done Leia.

More pictures! Pre-submission costume check! These got taken today. Some with the hair pieces and some without. I'm looking for for any final advice this week or so before taking final pictures for submission this month. I'm also still working on make-up and undergarments.

Your lines and your hair look fantastic!

How do the colors look under normal lighting? The gray bits seem almost black in the photos you shared. You probably want to submit better-lit photos when you apply so the judges can see the true colors.

Thanks. And yes I will need to have the proper lighting when I submit. My friends will help with that. It it steel gray in person, I swear.

I'm really happy with how this build finally came together. Very Happy

I am also working on ANH Leia and hubby is one hat disk away from being an Imperial officer for 501st. His first costume! So we will submit together.

I agree with Jenna. It looks great!

However, the colours seem a little off (could be my monitor though). Grey is such a hard colour to get to show up right on screen.

My Lothal Leia is now approved! Yay! Anyone with questions on this costume feel free to ask me. I also have a bunch of Imgur picture links if needed.
