Rogue Rebels Costume Journey: Jes Gistang, Part 2

Ok so in part 1 I learned that building full armor takes a lot of cutting, sanding, glue, blood, and fingertips so here I continue to pay the price. Our build group of Kevin, Michael, Leeanna, Stacey, Emii, and Cam was still going strong. After trimming out the pieces, sanding the edges clean, and losing… Continue reading Rogue Rebels Costume Journey: Jes Gistang, Part 2

Rogue Rebels Costume Journey: Jes Gistang, Part 1

Unlike our previous journeys, this one will take us down a new road. To the place of full armor. Kanan and Sabine have their share of armor but are far from this. So to get started we were able to take part in a project with KW Designs. Build and finish the Legacy female Stormtrooper… Continue reading Rogue Rebels Costume Journey: Jes Gistang, Part 1

Rogue Rebels Costume Journey: Sabine Wren, Part 2

So we had finally seen Star Wars Rebels. And boy were we inspired. We set to work on our improvements of Sabine Wren’s costume. We had more references now and we used them to make Sabine as best as we could! Her shoulders aren’t quite the flat Boba shape, they were more curved and so… Continue reading Rogue Rebels Costume Journey: Sabine Wren, Part 2

Rogue Rebels Costume Journey: Sabine Wren, Part 1

In our family Sabine’s journey is an interesting one. When we met the character in the original Meet Sabine video… we caught our first glimpse of something we’ve never had in Star Wars before. An artist. Liz was sold. At the time she had the same haircut and she basically fit the character look perfectly… Continue reading Rogue Rebels Costume Journey: Sabine Wren, Part 1

The armor has been changed the most. I started with the first version made from foam. I went with a pretty dark… Continue reading Rogue Rebels Costume Journey: Kanan Jarrus, Part 2

How it All Started (Liz’s Version…)

A long time ago in a country not too far away… A girl and her two brothers running, excited to meet a group of foreigners who came to poor neighborhoods in Mexico every year and handed out toys to children.  The feeling of receiving a toy when you have almost nothing is a feeling of… Continue reading How it All Started (Liz’s Version…)

Rogue Rebels Costume Journey: Kanan Jarrus, Part 1

I always get some questions about some of our costumes and our build process. I have a few build threads on the Rebel Legion boards and the Saber Guild forums to help out any potential Kanans. But I thought I’d post up here and let everyone know how something like this gets put together. The… Continue reading Rogue Rebels Costume Journey: Kanan Jarrus, Part 1
