    May 10, 2015, 6:22 PM - Clone Wars: Asajj Ventress #1

    Brand new to these forums, but a long time member of the 501st Redback Garrison.
    Well... I figured, why not continue my obsessioninfatuation admiration of Ventress?

    I spent a fair bit of time trying to work out the tabbards, and I've managed to get a working pattern made from black calico:

    I've then hunted around for the right fabric - and some lovely wonderful person has already uploaded the design to Spoonflower. I purchased 2 yards of fabric, which turns out is 1 yard too short. (1 yard now on order to complete tunic). I also found some perfect bias binding to trim the pleated tunic as well.

    So then... comes the pleating. This is the approximate pleat dimensions that I used. I now hate pleating with a passion.Click image for larger version.

    Some of you stalking around C7 may have bumped into the final costume... but there's still a long way to go until I'm happy with it, and would be willing to submit it for scrutiny!

    Awesome work! I was part of the group of Clones you got the picture with, but I must have been invading Filoni's panel at the time of this shot!!

    Nice stuff, eqdizzle - the group looked pretty amazing!
    Thanks Bounty1138! As always, it's a work in progress! I need to remake the gauntlets, as the foam I used was "ok" but I'm sure I can do better!

    I'm pretty sure I met you as well. I think I remember telling you your costume was fantastic!!! I really enjoyed the evolution of her character in the Clone Wars.

    I know this is an old topic, but I just had to revive it. I put the pattern up on spoonflower, and I'm so glad it helped someone make an awesome costume. You've motivated me to get back to work on my Asajj. It's finished, I am just having a horrible time with the bald cap portion. Hawaii heat and bald caps seem to be a bad combo.
