Operation Stardust- My Jyn Build Journey

The story so far started over a year and a half ago where I created a budget Jyn. I heavily altered a green vest, by dyeing, cutting, reshaping and sewing on details to produce a half decent con worthy version. I made the shirt from scratch making my own pattern and made it a bit too big. The pants have only been slightly altered. I originally made my own belt and holster using kmart belts, foam and vinyl which didn't last too well. I bought brown boots and leather painted fingerless gloves I already owned. I altered a crystal necklace for the Kyber crystal. I also got the blaster 3d printed by a friend and I painted it up.

I made the datatape out of foam but yeah not accurate. It's not a requirement but it's an option and again will probably get it 3d printed.

Since then I've managed upgrades-

I commissioned a friend to make my belt and holster out of leather and to the standards online- that's the one in the picture. So as far as I'm aware that's all good as is the blaster. I also need to 3d print the communicator and the baton and again I've got that sorted.

I repainted my boots darker for the con only. These boots are to be replaced entirely with the correct ones. I know where to get it from.

The pants and shirt need to be remade entirely. So will probably look towards commissioning that as I would feel safer putting that in the hands of a professional.

The vest needs to be replaced too. It did get upgraded with the greebie from a fellow Stardust Sister but there isn't much further I can take it alterations wise to get it up to standard. I'm not 100% on where to get that vest so more research needed. Otherwise may need to be commissioned.

I'll get the card and sliders 3d printed this time instead of making it from foam like I have previously.

The gloves will be replaced and I know where to get those.

I also know where to buy the Kyber crystal necklace (not really a requirement I just want one).

In terms of likeness, I happen to be the same height as Felicity Jones so that's a plus. I've been told a lot that I have a similar look to her and recently did a new makeup test that I'm pretty satisfied with. I'm a natural brunette and have no issue with the hairdo. Probably will look into feathering the front of my hair to nail it.

So yeah lots of stuff to do but I think I got an ok headstart at least.

So not too much to update yet as I'm just about to move house this week however I have compiled all my progress photos so far in an album on my cosplay page. The plan after the move is to get the Endor Finder gloves, boots and get 3d printed parts (communicator, baton, vest card and sliders) done. From there I'll be looking into getting the pants, shirt and vest commissioned.

Progress is progress, even if it is only a little bit. Keep up the good work!
