Finally got around to starting this one. I did a test run this weekend at a couple of events. I need to make a couple of vest tweaks plus add the proper blaster and holster. I hope to submit photos very soon!

Looks good! Only suggestion I would make, I had one pouch in the back of the belt when I submitted mine, and was asked to change it to two pouches to get it approved.

Where did you get/make your wristwatch? I was getting ready to make one on my own, but if there is an easy one to buy I might just do that instead.

Looking great. My Rebel Briefin Leia was judged as informal because the yellow stripe was too wide, I would check the width of the stripe before submitting the costume. Smile

Thanks everyone for the feedback! I'll revisit the standards, make necessary adjustments, etc.

I sculpted the wrist comm from air-dry clay (what is used for jewelry) and glued it to an existing watch/band. I also sculpted the badge from the same clay. I think they both turned out pretty decent, plus they held up rather well in the two test troops - one of which was in 104 degree heat!

Thanks again everyone for the feedback/comments. I do however, have a question regarding the pouches. The standards state that there are two pouches in the back, but I have seen approved costumes with a single pouch in the back - one of which was a recent approval. It's really no big deal either way as they are relatively easy to construct. Just looking for clarification.

Thanks!! Amadalia

What we have decided, as judges is that you really can't tell in any of the reference materials how many pouches there are, only that the pouch(es) take up a particular width on Leia's back. The standards are old. We are willing to let just one pouch pass as long as it spans the right size, which yours does. Of course, we'd love to see two, as that is what is in the standards, but I have yet to find a source that conclusively proved that it is two instead of just one.

Thank you for the clarification. Very Happy I am replacing the stripes with the proper width (1"), and will be constructing the holster and blaster very soon.

It was great meeting you, as well!

As I had mentioned to you, your WIP thread was very helpful in building this costume. Thank you so much, Vera! Leia Buns

Yes, it is. I have several that are so close to being finished, but there is always something else that comes up. I'm still working on prequel stuff!! Laughing
