Fabrics, pants and boots, oh my!



Today I did some research for my Jaina Solo (Young Jedi Knight) costume. I'm still not sure whether I'm going to do major sewing for this one, or just alter some regular clothes to fit the bill. But in any case, I looked up some fabrics that would work, as well as some pants and boots. I wasn't very successful in finding pants, but I'll keep trying.

This texture and color looks pretty good for the main part of the tunic.

Not really what I had in mind, but something like this would work. The color is the main thing, it's pretty much perfect!

 
These boots were MADE for this costume (actually, they're designer riding boots)!! Unfortunately, they cost $300! :O

So I've been looking at cheaper versions (as in, $20 or less!), kind of like this.



May the Force be with you,
