Hopefully I can get some detailed shots soon of all the parts of the costume, however lets start with the over all costume. It took about 3 days to make from start to finish.

The jumpsuit was very easy to make. I used fancy slinky dress material that I got from the $1 a yard bin. I used less than 2 yards and thread I had.

The "belt" are actually 2 purse straps I put together to get Mara's double belt strap. That was $3

The boots are Docs and the shin guards were my father's knee pads from umping softball

The most expensive part of the costume was the wig, but since I will probably be Dawn from Joseph Michael Linsner comics or Maude Lebowski, I figure I will use it again.

It is Mace Windu's lightsaber, but I did not have time to make a Mara one (silly law school applications).

Technically, Mara does not have a Jedi robe that she wears in the comics, however, I decided that every Jedi deserves a robe, even if they did use to be part of the Emperor's Hand.


I learned all my morality from the My Little Pony Movie:

Morning Glory: They need our help, Rosedust!

Rosedust: It's not our fight, Morning Glory.

Megan: Yes it is! It's everyone's fight!

Lickety-Split: Yeah! Everybody has to help everyone else!
