    Feb 14, 2010, 3:48 PM - Corellian pilot advice-- #1

    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.

    Well, I don't have much in the way of tips on pilot costumes as I've never made one. I would check on the Rebel Legion forums as they have a lot of information over there.

    Also, people don't usually eat you for bringing your own approach to a classic outfit as long as you put the effort in on it. Maybe Corran Horn fanboys are the violent and hungry exception though!

    Haha. Thanks for the reply mate. I appreciate it.

    But to be honest, it's like an Irish Jedi. How could you not be passionate? =D

    Haha. That's true! I do know some people with some strong feeling about Mr. Horn.

    Will be interested to see how your costume turns out! I need some creative outlet while the weather clears up to cooperate with my own project.

    Fair enough!

    As soon as I get my taxes this coming weekend, I'm going to start looking for pieces and materials. I'm pretty excited.

    G'luck with your weather conditions. Haha.

    I got my boots today. They're totally German Army boots. They *klak* when I walk on solid surfaces and all.
