[COS] Dressing Up the New Republic – Star Wars

What’s a costumer to do when she’s done with her costumes over a week and a half early, has a relatively light costume schedule, and has a free Saturday?  Do a build in under 10 hours obviously.

To be fair, I had been thinking my way through the construction of this costume for a while now simply because I thought it would be fun.  The jacket and the grey belt took about six hours of work and I’m pretty happy with how they look!  The only thing I would change would be to go back and figure out a way to build the red stripe into the fabric instead of top stitching it on.  Oh, and include a rank insignia.

I’ll be honest: the other reason I made and wore this was because it felt so wrong NOT to bring a Winter costume to the convention… and yes I did flip through my X-Wing omnibuses to make sure that it was canon that she wore this!
