Oh Winter.  Why do the EU writers not appreciate you and use you enough?  In my mind, she is easily one of the best characters created in the SWEU and I wish that Del Ray would go back in the timeline and write awesome stories about her and some of the other awesome ladies kicking butt and saving the New Republic.  (Update: Oh wait, they kinda did with Scoundrels?  MORE PLEASE.)

The costume itself clearly isn’t an exact match for what she wears in the comics but is more of a hodgepodge between some of the fatigues she wears and this fabulous fanart I found on Deviantart.  I wanted something that was going to be functional for being out in the field.  Obviously, Winter is incredibly sophisticated but she’s also not afraid to get her hands dirty.  There’s a time and a place for Alderaanian dresses.

I would love to one day make a grey jacket to match the pants like in the original fanart but I think I have a few too many other Winter costumes I want to work on first.
