About this Costume
Construction Details:
nI made an upper bathing suit style suit from leather look spandex at the sides and textured synthetic leather for the front and back. It zips up in the back.
nThe pants are the same fabrics as the upper portion. The textured synthetic leather is quilted with batting to create that ridged look Mara had in many art forms.
nBelts and Straps:
nI used some brown vinyl I had lying around. I used this for the belt, shoulder harness and arm straps.
nThe belt buckle is made of real leather, covered in silver spandex and hooks into the belt for a closure.
nThe harness has a gold ring in the back that all the straps loop around.
nThe arm straps are sewn shut and have a silver dome rivet in them for decor.
nHood & Cape:
nI used some random cream color knit for the hoot. I sewed it into a tube, French seaming it. Its overall shape is like a wide circle scarf. It pulls up over the head and the black goggles I had on hand help keep it in place.
nThe cape is just a straight cut of micro suede that quite literally safety pins at the neck. I had to make it looked as unfinished as possible.
nGloves, Knee Pads, Boots:
nTe gloves are my winter gloves. They are real leather.
nThe knee pads were re purposed from my Sonya Blade costume.
nThe boots are just a pair of random black boots I had. They are comfy, that's all that matters.
nThe wig is a shoulder length, layered, auburn wig I bought from another cosplayer off Storenvy. Not sure what brand the wig is, but it's a skin top and can be parted any way. It's super easy to style and really suits this character.
nFor a last minute costume (took me less than 3 days to throw this costume together) I'd say it turned out pretty nice.
nThe saber I am using is friends; it's a Hasbro Black Series Vader saber. Mike (EleventhPhotography) just put a filter over the photos to make it appear purple like Mara???s Saber.
Personal Thoughts:
The fact I have no Star Wars costume in my gallery slightly alarms me. I have been an avid Star Wars fan since I was a young child and the fact that princess Leia and Padme both have extensive costume galleries, I should have done about half a dozen costumes from the series at this point.
nI do have a few Padme costumes WIP going, but the first to get done and photographed is my Mara Jade. I made this costume on a whim believe it or not. I was invited to take part in the annual Santa Clause Parade as part of a Star Wars float and had to come up with a costume. Originally I wanted to make Rey from Force Awakens, but that was already taken, so I decided Mara Jade would be the next easiest option.
nI didn???t buy any fabric for this specific project; I had spare fabric and scraps that I utilized to make this costume possible.
nI know the character is technically non-existent now that Disney dismissed Expanded Universe, no one will forget who Mara Jade is for a long time to come.
