Kay_Dee--you absolutley are an expert and what you describe makes perfect sense to me! It explains why I can where a different cup size if the width is changed.

Benae Queen-- I'm laughing at this. Yeah, if only they knew all of our little tricks! Spray tans, hair dye, contacts. Whew, the list just goes on and on.

I usually wear a 32 and fall between cup sizes and when you factor in that I'm 10pounds less around con season, well..it makes it hard to know.
I'm glad I opened this discussion and that you've shared with me. I feel a lot more confident in what I'm buying. I'll ask him about exchanges since it sounds like that worked for Magnius wife.

Thank you to everyone that gave suggestions. I went with Jamins top (leiasmetalbikini.com) and The Three Muses braid. The rest of the costume I made myself. Jamin's top fit well with some minor adjustments. I'm very pleased with it and how the costume turned out. I need to hem the skirts but here's a pic.

Jamin sells the boot toppers to attach to your boots and also the resin braid piece at the end of the braid. Do you have the gold resin bun holders for the large bun that sits on your head that the braid comes out of? I cannot see it from this picture, just wanted to mention it if you didnt, and gold hoop earrings. Smile

I have the bun holders but you can't really see them much in this picture. The braid came with holder but it's a shiny gold and doesn't really match. I'd like to get Jamin's. I guess I could paint the one I have but I don't really like the shape either. I think it's a little big by scale. Boot toppers are on my want list for sure!

I have the vibro axe on order. I can't wait to see it and get some pictures.

A garrison friend is making the vibro axe for me. He's made one for several other girls in the RL. I'll post a picture of it with his information once it's done.

So here apictures with the vibro axe Very Happy This is the taller version and it was fun Razz fitting it in a picture. I really love it. It's VERY light weight and easy to move around with. The color is extremely accurate. It was made by a member of my garrision who has been making it for years. If you're interested in getting one, pm me and I will send you his information.

I'm still tweaking my SL costume but it's very close to being done.

Do you mean Julie wants a slave leia costume or the vibro axe? If she doen't have a SL costume yet, she really should get one pompom . She would make a lovely leia. Very Happy I know Summer would help her if she wanted to make at least part of the costume. She gave me a lot of advice on mine. It's not perfect but the way I see it, it's a good version 1.0. I can make improvements over time.

My axe is made by the person that made Summers so if you've seen hers, mine is basically the same.

Julie,
I can't imagine that ANYTHING would look bad on you. It's a fun costume. Everyone loves leia. I never thought I would have the guts (or maybe too much gut for that matter LOL) to wear it. Laughing
I think you'd have fun wearing it.
