    Apr 16, 2015, 6:04 PM - Rey - Star Wars: The Force Awakens Build (open for everyone!) #1

    As the new trailer for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuted debuted today, my Facebook feed (mine included) has been a-buzz with images and talk of people wanting to cosplay Rey. I have a sneaking suspicion it will be a VERY popular costume. So, in following the massive Tron Legacy and my Tomb Raider 2013 thread, this is not just a personal build thread but open to everyone! Post all the images and information you can find so this can be the one stop shop for all Rey cosplayers to get their costume/prop information, ask questions, and show off their Rey costumes! Tally ho!

    I just want to know if that is a lightsaber staff. Similar to the Shadow Guards in TFU: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Emperor%27s_Shadow_Guard The closeup of the end did look like a lightsaber.

    I know this is a bit of a derail, but Rey's concept art looks a lot like the young Han concept art

    The photos out of Celebration from iO9 are SO HELPFUL! I'm going to suss out the fabrics (going to try to get a build done in time for the premiere), so will report back! But I reckon based on the photos x the way the fabric moves in the trailer, the cross-body draped stuff is either a very fine cotton muslin, or potentially a really trashed silk chiffon. Probably the former though, since it's harder wearing.

ID:	465482mvanwalks421 - It's certainly and apt comparison (especially since in the concept art of Rey behind the costume (photo), she looks to be sporting a Han-style blaster.

    Zorg - GREAT pictures! It's great to see some high-res stuff of her costume already up! I'm really curious about that fabric....(well, obviously there's multiple pieces, thus multiple fabrics in play, but hmm....wondering if the gauze-like fabric is linen strips or perhaps bubble cotton?

    Clembot - Good luck on your build! I have no idea when I'm going to do mine. I definitely want to do it right (aka ALL THE REFERNCE!), but I'm leaning towards Dragoncon due to some injuries I have from a car accident last year. This costume looks breathable (aka good for hot Atlanta weather), functional (easy to move in, not restrictive of any of my injured spots), and a staff that I might be able to double for a walking staff around the con floor.

    Some kind folks at Celebration are apparently hard at work getting pictures up for us. Just found this one of a placard describing the materials that Rey's costume is made out of.

    MATERIALS:

    Wrap dress
    - viscose
    Head wrap - cotton
    Top - hemp and cotton jersey
    Trousers - silk
    Backpack - leather
    Wrist cuff and belt - leather
    Pouch - canvas
    Arm wraps - cotton
    Gloves - leather
    Boots - wool and leather
    Staff - 3D print

    Also a closeup of the concept art of Rey. Definitely very Han Solo-ish.

    The end of her staff looks a lot like a Darth Maul saber emitter to me.

    The boots look like a very weathered type of the UGG boots

    Definetly, they look to be the base, but pretty sure they modified them:

    I suppose so

    I think if you find the right model (right knitting pattern), you could weather the wool with acetic acid/vinnegar to get this look.

    I do not think you could find them. They look to be production modified, not a buy-n-go boots.

    I was thinking that people might be jumping on this as soon as I saw the pictures from the live stream yesterday, so definetly right place to come! :3
    And so many awesome pictures already!!
    And of course the fabric list, that's gonna be handy.
    I'm thinking of making it myself in the near future, so this will be fun!

    So the color of the cloth is beige/sand/grey ish. Would it be best to achieve that through colouring white cloth or?

    I think everything is a natural colour, not white, and weathered. You can see the white contrast with the mannequin. So... natural colour plus weathering is my best choice,

    Yeah you're right. Well...I will sit down and order in fabrics to see what will fit. Hoping to get it as accurate as possible.
    Would like to see more of the hairstyle that she has too, only two pictures so far showing it off vaguely

    Luckily Dharma Trading is the go-to for all things SW and Jedi fabrics! They have all of her fabrics:

    Hemp/jersey: http://www.dharmatrading.com/fabric/...c_location=ufi

    Viscose: http://www.dharmatrading.com/fabric/...c_location=ufi

    Full cotton section: http://www.dharmatrading.com/fabric/...c_location=ufi

    Full silk section...and their raw silk is cheap and amazing! Possibly what her pants are?: http://www.dharmatrading.com/fabric/...k-fabrics.html

    Oh yes! I'm so happy this thread exists. I've been eyeing Rey since I saw the first trailer. I may have to drop another cosplay to do hers, but I'm all for that. This outfit looks like it'll work perfectly for Dragon Con's weather so I may do it for that.

    Hair - I'm curious too. Even closeups of her, show only the front of her face, so it's nigh impossible to see what's going on in the back. So here's to hoping they'll be nice enough to release more images of Rey for us. (I mean, hey, they already provided a handy fabric list with the costume exhibit! So there's hope!)

    Fabric - Thank you Nadine for the amazing links to Dharma! I always get nervous with fabric hunting online as I'm still fairly uneducated past the basics (vs. being able to actually hold it and see it in hand at a store. I'll totally check out Fine Fabrics and Gail K. Fabrics up here in Atlanta, but I have a sneaking suspicion they're not going to have these.).

    Though on note to the wrap dress, are there different kinds of viscose? I just did a quick search on the fabric, and it seems to lay like cotton, so I'm curious how best one would get the ripple-y sort of effect going on with dress. Perhaps it's just how the fabric lays? Or...? (I would just be worried about buying say, the Dharma viscose rayon/silk fabric and having it lay flat without the 'wrinkles' (forgive me, I'm lacking in proper terminology) the wrap dress has).

    Boots I'm coming the same conclusion as well that her boots are some sort of modified UGG. Thankfully, there appears to be a lot of knock-off brands on Ebay. It'll just be a matter of finding the right shade/fabric. This'll be an adventure as I've never modified shoes before.

    Staff - I know it was 3D printed, so I imagine that they did concept art and then rendered it to be printed as one full piece. (Or possibly multiple pieces that could be then assembled together).

    Dharma is excellent at swatches! And I know a lot of people go to them for Jedi fabric. Definitely order your self a set of swatches to get a good feel. They are my go-to for any natural fabrics. And they all dye beautifully. They're who I went to for the handwoven cotton for Gandalf! It was a dead on match.

    I can 100% guarantee you that staff was printed in multiple sections. While you can technically modify certain 3D printers (like a Delta) to have an "infinite" z-axis, even the $100,000 industrial printers would not be able to print something like that in one go. It's definitely multiple parts, and possibly able to be disassembled to make it easier to transport and less likely to be damaged when stored between use.

    Also, I'm pretty sure her boots are 100% custom fabricated like everything else we are seeing here. It's the same style as Ugg boots (which are just a brand of sheepskin boots) but I doubt it's an actual Ugg boot, as I don't think LucasFilm's costume department would use such an incredibly popular/obvious accessory for the main character's costume. That said, it's similar enough to an Ugg where I agree that you can just buy a pair of them (or any sheepskin boot) and weather/age them to achieve a reasonable facsimile.
