One of cosplayer Vanya Yount’s, a.k.a. Rattle and Burn, recent creations is a General Hux costume. The First Order officer from The Force Awakens was dressed in a crisp uniform and made an imposing, intimidating impression. Yount captured all of those traits in her take on the costume. She made the ensemble from scratch, patterning everything first before cutting it from the final fabric.
It wasn’t the easiest costume because the suit and jacket are so fitted. Yount said she had to consider the tidy structure along with being able to move freely. She said the following about Hux’s jacket:
It came out decently well, I have solid range of movement, and definitely have levelled up my suiting skills. Last time I hand-tailored a suit coat it took about a week and there were tears. Only about a day this time! I’ve literally been sitting here hand sewing almost nonstop since noon.
