This is my first costume.
I want to make an X-wing pilot costume using a green flight suit. This is technically based on the character, Corran horn and his Corellian roots.
I plan to wear my leather jacket over my flight suit and the rest of the appropriate props for an X-wing pilot and even make my own lightsaber to further suggest the connection to Horn.
The template that I'm using is the Dagobah Swamp article on how to make a movie-accurate pilot suit.
My request is for any tips or suggestions being as this is my first time making a costume and whether or not making my own variation of a celebrated outfit will get me eaten alive by fanboys.
Thanks for the consideration.
