I've been lurking on other people's build threads for a while now to try to get a feel for what the judges do and don't like. I think it's high time that I start my own thread, and I have some specific questions to kick things off.

I had to make my dress in two pieces, so I have some overlap between the blouse and the skirt. I'd like to trim the top, but I want to make sure I leave enough room for an acceptable amount of blousing. Does this look appropriately bloused?

The belt easily has me the most intimidated of this whole build. I might cave and end up buying someone else's work before this is all over. Until then, I'm stuck with my own work. I see I need to recenter some of my dots, but otherwise, does this look like it would pass approval?

If I ever made a new Leia costume (mine is 20 years old XD), that's I thought; two pieces!
(I can assure that the pics on the Star Wars Costumes book you can see the gap between the skirt and the top)
Your costume looks great in my opinion. Go ahead!

I'd resize your front plate so the top has the same diameter as the button, but it looks good. Smile

And then try your belt on with the dress and see what the blousing looks like. I think there's enough, but better to check with the belt on.
