So I made this costume because I've been dying to cosplay as her for a while and just never had the confidence to go for it until now. So I just draped everything and went from there. There is a lot of hand sewing done here for the details. I want to wear it the next convention I go to, though I might only wear it for a little while because I'm terrified of possible wardrobe malfunctions.

I also made a little jabba bag to carry around with me so I can have my cell phone and meds on me at all times. his mouth opens a little extra to one side just because I knew I'd end up needing a big opening in the bag to stuff whatever in it.

face details:

So what do you think? Did I do a decent job? Also, I started this costume on wednesday of this week, finished it on thursday and today is friday and I made the Jabba bag today. So considering that time frame, I think I did a pretty decent job.

That is awesome and you totally rocked it.
