... I follow those other threads as well and unfortunately they mostly consist of "I like this new look" and "Its horrible" along with the reasons for those sentiments. obviously I am slightly exaggregating but there really is hardly objective talk about the costume itself here.
Sadly, I'm not sure it'll ever get back to that here.
For example, my thread regarding discussion of Din's gloves in the Mando forum. I was met with a comment from a member here who makes Din Gloves, with a, "nope, they were custom made"... when in fact, my wife knows the lady who sewed all of Din's and the Armorer's soft parts for the show and said that "ALL THE GLOVES WERE STORE BOUGHT FOR THE SHOW".
But it doesn't matter, TDH used to be about research and development and process narrative. Now it is just about where can you buy everything to have it done faster.
