Young Jedi Knights
Star Wars Expanded Universe
Last Updated: 04-29-2011
I originaly put this together for the very first Star Wars convention. I used a different wig which I have since styled into my offical Belle wig. I was surprised to discover the jumpsuit still fit me and as I had no pics of this costume, decided to take it to Starfest 2011. I hope to get some more good shots of it in the future and as long as it fits I will wear it. ^___^
The wig is a quick spur of the moment costume store find that ended up working out beautifully. It was originaly very curly and upon brushing out the curls I was very pleased that was all I had to do to get this natural wave. I have placed some pins in it to reduce the volume as well as make the left side easier to tuck behind my ear.
The jumpsuit is an amazing thrift store find. I am still not confident enough in my sewing ablity to make a jumsuit from scratch. I'm still deciding how I want to get it a bit more dirty as she is a mechanic and loves to tinker with things not caring if she gets dirty in the process. ;) They are kinda hard to see, but I looked high and low to find good tools which looked like they came from her tool box. They are in the left breast pocket of her jumpsuit. I rolled the sleeves because they came 3/4 length and I thought she might just roll them up when working on stuff so, no one really can tell the sleeves are shorter than they should be.
The boots are something I found in my closet. I searched high and low to find something I liked at a store to no avail. They mostly fit and will do for now.
The lightsaber is a Mace Windu one. I know. I'm still trying to come up with some design I like for her lightsaber hilt. I'd love to get a real one like the fx blades, but for now this will do.
She's one of my fav characters in the Expanded Universe and the first one I was introduced to by way of the Young Jedi Knights series of books. This is the only version of her I will ever cosplay. (Don't ask for the NJO rant. I will only end up hurting peoples feelings. Lets just say if it weren't for Anime I wouldn't love Star Wars anymore as Anime helped me want to be part of a fandom again.)
