Bottom line up front: I wanted to start this thread to share my wife's progress on her Ailyn Fett costume and collect any input/recommendations from the folks I trust most when it comes to costuming. Let me know what you've got, and I'll pass the word to her.
Ever since we booked the hotel for our first Dragon*Con next year my wife has been bitten with the cosplay bug, and while she isn't looking for anything to submit for 501st/RL approval (yet) I was surprised when she showed interest in putting together an Ailyn Vel costume. I was even more excited by the fact that come early 2014 I should be putting the final touches on my Fett. At any rate, I tried to dig around here and some other places and showed her the few pictures I could dig up.
After showing her everything I could find she came up with an idea for a somewhat modified version of the first photo. She had previously been thinking about a fem-Han Solo costume, so this wasn't too far of a leap. My only request was that she should dirty everything up and give it a classic Star Wars feel.
I was surprised when she found and bought these cargo pants for just over $20+shipping.
More to follow I'm sure...
