Rey – Star Wars: The Force Awakens at San Diego Comic Con 2016

I got inspired to make Rey’s costume from watching Star Wars in late April (I know, very late). I managed to break down her costume into some easy pieces: her wrap dress made out of viscose material, a sleeveless round-neck shirt with a slight cut in the middle, harem like pants, belts, her side green bag and ankle boots. Her belt is actually one piece of brown leather, but I had to make my way with two belts that were way too big for me. Then, I went with cutting a hole in the belt to make it fit better or close enough to mimic the one piece for Comic Con.

Unfortunately, it was way too flippin’ hot for even this outfit and I had to change out. So, I’m going to go back and take clearer photos of the costume! I think even though I made the arm wraps out of t-shirt material, it still was way too hot!!

I also have all the elements to make an evil!Rey version too. So maybe I’ll do a duo photo of movie!Rey and evil!Rey photo set! I do enjoy having a light saber now and went with that instead of her blaster or staff like most Rey’s tend to do. I didn’t feel like carrying around the staff that should be roughly taller than me. I also couldn’t find the nerf blaster that’s bigger than the one in the movie either. So, lightsaber was the next best idea! Though, maybe I’ll figure out a way to do the staff for non-convention things… We shall see!
