Hi,

I assume you are a lady...

The best place to source for info would be the Bounty Hunters Guild, a detachment of the 501st Legion. The forum link is provided below:

http://forum.thebhg.net/

A good thing about doing this costume is that it is accepted for membership in both the 501st Legion as well as the Rebel Legion.

Good luck. Most importantly, enjoy the process.

Thanks GetzJedi!
Yep girly here.

I think I will be enjoying making it. Feeling a buzz just sourcing for parts and accuracy.

One thing that'll pay off a lot in future troops - choosing a costume that allows you to sit :P
