This The Force Awakens Rey Costume Could Survive Jakku
Star Wars: The Force Awakens has awakened and inspired many cosplayers. Ida, also known as Starbit Cosplay, decided she wanted to make a Rey costume after seeing the movie. She bought the pants but drafted a pattern for the top and made the robe pieces/sash and belt (she fastened two belts together). The costume looks gorgeous in photos Ida just took with Ookami Cosplay Photography. Ida dyed the pieces to give them that aged Jakku look. She says:
“The shirt was colored with tea/coffe, the color was too deep though so I washed some of it out.
The sash was a bit too tan for my taste, so I decided to make it a bit greyer. For the sash I mixed brown and grey paint with water, put that in an empty spray bottle, and in the end I added some black fabric spray paint into the bottle. Then SHAKESHAKESHAKE. (if you want to do this too, make sure that the color mix isn’t too dark, it should be a nice, muddy brownish grey haha)
After that I just had to spray the entire thing and wait for it to dry.”
