Hello and need help please.
« on: May 08, 2015, 01:24:22 PM »
Hi my name is Melody and I work in Crescent City, CA on the coast. A friend I met from work (James) told me about CCG after hearing I'm into costuming and cosplay, so here I am.  :D . I love helping children and am super into costuming. I'm usually Lady Sif from Thor, but I'm a Star Wars freak so I have a feeling CCG is going to be some of my most fun times in the near future. However, I do not sew so I'm looking for someone who might be able to help me. I am wanting to cosplay Satele Shan. I love her strength, her story, and her double light saber! Is anyone here able to help me with a Satele costume? and a double light saber?

Nice to meet you all and can't wait to personally meet you in person.

May the Force be with You!

Melody

Hi Melody:

At a high level, you should also check out:

http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/index.php

http://www.rebellegion.com/satele-shan/

When it comes to tips on sourcing supplies and getting ideas on how to construct pieces of a costume, the Rebel Legion (and finding a board/site for Satele will be helpful.) I don't know the character well enough to offer more than that but perhaps others can chime in.  You will want to be sure your costume complies with standards of the Rebel Legion so be sure to research that.  Good luck and welcome.
Looking for Droids.  R2 and BB units mostly.

 :D Hi! Thank you for that information. I will definitely check out those links. I am not talented in the sewing department so would really need help. I am looking for an outfit like I attached here. That is not me in the Satele picture. I attached a pic of me so you can all see who your talking to though.  :)

Hi Melody! If you don't get any bites here or on the Rebel Legion (you'll see it referred to as the RL around here) for making the soft parts for your outfit, you might just need to take all the photos and descriptions you can get your hands on to a local seamstress and see if she/he can make you what you need from scratch. Those kinds of folks are usually pretty good at sourcing fabric and making things look the way you need them to, as long as you find someone good to go to. I did that for a costume I ended up abandoning and it actually turned out really well. Plus, she liked the challenge and variety from doing something she'd never done before.

Thank you! here in Crescent City there isn't very many seamstresses. I did ask a few and none wanted to even try it. It's a small town. Hoping to find someone to help me. I'll keep trying. I'll pay commission of course.  :D

I apologize for the pics. I just read the netiquette post. I don't have a link really so if you need to delete them that's ok to make it easier to scroll through this thread. If anyone can help me with a costume then I can email them personally the pics.

Your pics are totally fine! The issue with pics is when they are huge and embedded in the post, which gets the scroll bars all wacky.

Hello and Thank you!

Yep I know right were Grants Pass is. I go through there to my dr. appointments in Medford. I'm actually a little closer to you in Gasquet. Thank you so much for your help. James said he knows someone who can sew, but if your good with armor, I may need your help for another costume.  :D

I hope to meet you too soon at an event. I'm new here so I'll keep an eye out for messages that lets us know about events. Or feel free to let me know too.
