Seventh Sister completeThis is my finished Seventh Sister from Star Wars Rebels. I’ll be updating this post with more images soon.

Costume Items:

Belt Buckle, greeblie & wrist greeblies can be found on my Shapeways Shop.

Boots: Black boots/shoes (plain) with red stripe along heel and part of sole on both sides. Here’s the boots I used, the spat should cover the ‘elastic’ area: Boots from Amazon .Spats: Black (semi-gloss) armor that arches over boot/shoe

Pants with pinstripe.

Pants: Black form fitting. Semi-stretch suiting type fabric. Thin red pin strip (1/4″ – 1/2″, depends on your leg size but I would try to stick to the 1/4″ -3/8″ ) along the outer sides. These are the pants I used (at the time of this post they seem to be unavailable =( ): Black Pants on Amazon. They are SO comfy and nicely form-fitting but be very careful when putting them on after you attach the red stripe. Pretend they are tights and you have to gradually put them on. I also removed the 2 back pockets.

Chest piece before red details.

Chest Piece: Black semi-gloss (same as spats). Made of a thin hard material. The armor has a ridge along each shoulder. The armor should reach from the edge of shoulder to shoulder and be close to the neck as well. I’m keeping tabs on someone who’s molding the armor. Mine is kind of odd to squeeze into as I was a little adamant about have as less seams as possible, but I think comfort is going to outweigh that. 🙂

Belt before sidestrap.

Belt: Black with silver buckle, black/dark gray greeblie, and a side strap. I recommend scaling the buckle and greeblie to your size as I see a few extra large parts on some folk. I made the belt straps with black vinyl.

Jacket showing red lining.

Jacket: Same or similar fabric as pants. Red-lining. Lining should not show on the side of overlap above belt. White cogs on each shoulder.

Bracer before added detail.

Bracers: Black semi-gloss (same as spats and chest piece).
Same thin material as armor. Gray/silver greeblie on each. Again scale to your size. (available on my Shapeways shop).

Gloves: Black with red palm/fingers.

Finished Helmet

Helmet/Mask: Black w/ red ‘lights’ and white detail, painted red inside. I purchased my unfinished helmet and mask kit from Im_Echo (Etsy Shop) . The bonus to this one is that it was cast in black, so awesome. I did still paint it just for protection with a matte black primer by Army Painter. I didn’t use the semi-gloss paint like the armor as that stuff can do some really strange things (especially with the Florida humidity heh).

Neck Seal mid-sewing

Neck seal: Black with a seam every 1.5″ or so.
Another thing to scale to your size so the seams may be less, but I wouldn’t go more than 1.5″ wide. I butchered THIS shirt by chopping the arms off, cut open the sides, trimmed the waist and then made the seams by pinching and sewing.

Balaclava: To hide the skin as much as possible. Black.

Some notes and thoughts: I spent a ton of time researching each piece, looking up various screenshots and video clips (after watching certain episodes) to make sure of the details. Small details are important to me as well as making sure the costume is scaled correctly to fit ME! (animated characters have unrealistic body sizes as well as armor flexing, etc). I see good handful of extra large belt buckles, greeblies and white details as well as missing shoulder details, the extra strap hanging off the belt and a ‘ribbed’ neck seal.

Was pretty fun doing pretty much everything except the helmet from scratch!
And all of it, except the helmet/mask, fit in this nice little bin! Jacket goes on top of the armor.20160718_144531
