You may not realize it but today’s a very special week: it’s the anniversary of the launch of Star Wars: Battlefront II and if you know anything about me, it should probably be that I love Inferno Squad more than just about life itself. Around this time last year, I was impatiently waiting to get out of work so I could go home and play through Iden Versio’s story. A year later, it’s still one of my favorite stories and I’ll even be replaying it on Saturday on Twitch to mark the anniversary. Needless to say, an ‘Inferno Squad but make it work appropriate’ outfit was meant to be for today.

Are you tired of hearing me talking about Inferno Squad yet? Too bad.

I’ve never had a character call to me so quickly before like Iden Versio. From the minute I saw the Battlefront trailer and the Inferno Squad cover, I was in love. And then I somehow tripped and ended up deciding the very next week to try and have version one of her costume done by Awesome Con. That was in uhhh about a month and a half.
First things first, I owe a huge debt of thanks to my friend and garrisonmate Scott for helping make this happen. I would have been completely lost working on this armor without him. I’m a fabric girl all the way although I definitely learned a lot about the armor process while we worked on pulling this all together. (Sanding… so much sanding.)
On a ‘look at the cool thing we did!’ note, we went the extra mile and made the TIE chest box detachable from the armor since we see her with both set ups in the two trailers we seen so far. I’m looking forward to making some upgrades to this costume over the next few months to make it look even closer to how Iden looks in the trailer.

Thank you to Haythem of Lafhaj Studios for all of the rad pictures! Also thank you to my friend Dale who let me steal him to be my “Dadmiral” (aka Admiral Garrick Versio) since he had on his Krennic at the shoot.
Here’s to hoping that I’ll get to take pictures with more Inferno Squad people in the future once my costume looks even better!
Because when you’ve been working like crazy on a Commander Iden Versio costume… obviously you have to make an Inferno Squad inspired dress to wear for the panel you’re running that same day at the con. Or no wait… is it just me that’s that crazy?
