    Very hard to get a still frame of these particular shots but I'm getting real "1970s ski parka" vibes from the vest/jacket - I knew Gareth Edwards would come through with the "late-'70s sci-fi thriller" mood!

    Screen Shot 2016-04-07 at 11.37.25 pm.png

    Front stitching detail - looks like diagonal top-stitch and then maybe even a hand-basting vertically along the front placket and armhole?

    Stitching/quilting on the back is real nice, too - almost like Canadian/lattice smocking:

    Going to get cracking on that belt and holster setup immediately. Here comes a full day of clicking and pausing an HD copy of the video.

    I got that feeling from it as well - the 'parka' type - so I'm looking at polyester and polyester/cotton blend fabrics, thinking about what something like that would be made of. It looks relatively matte in most shots, but in the shot where you see the group walking out of the hangar bay (starting at about 00.58 into the trailer video) there appears to be a sheen on at least the front. That the shot is of them stepping outside into natural light (low light, maybe cloudy, but natural light none-the-less) could account for why a sheen would be visible there and not in other shots that show the jacket under florescent lighting, or in close shots, etc. That there's a look of wear really visible on shots of the back, something that seems to affect colour particularly, makes me think that the fabric could be one that really does have a slight sheen and some of the loss of that is due to a wearing process done to show age.

    All of this is a COMPLETE guess on my part, though, so someone please correct me if I'm way off.

    I'm think about ordering swatches of these fabrics, based in part on looking at my spring-weight parka and product descriptions, just so I can see them up close and in different lights. I'm not sure if the fabric of the back of the jacket is different than all those present on the front, or if the differences visible would be accounted for by lighting in different shots and wear patterns, etc, entirely, so again I appeal to the expertise of others on that one.

    Looks like there's a shirt, a jacket, a short vest and the head wrap/cloak thing.

    This is a real bad * costume.

    It almost reminds me of the concept art for rey a bit - very Solo inspired.

    Correct, it's a
    Imperial gunner disguise. No debate necessary, I've seen unreleased footage and am 110% certain that's the disguise she wears to infiltrate the Death Star.

    Man, that's a VERY close fit around the vest's armholes - no wonder I thought it was a parka with removable sleeves!

    LOSING MY MIND OVER HERE. We'd gone so long with only one still, I was really starting to think we'd never have anything better to go off of until the movie came out. So glad we got this trailer today. Okay, I know we've all seen it, but it's still such a great look at her costume that I'm posting it here as well. Maybe that first post could be used to compile all of our current references? Just so it's easy to keep track? I loooved the Rey thread and it was so helpful but it always pained me that it wasn't well organized.

    Rogue-One-Star-Wars-cast-photo-header.jpg

    EDIT: Also maybe we could ask LadyNerd to do a turn around sketch of her costume once we get the images together? I know her Rey was a fantastic help to everyone. I don't know how much she charges, but we could all pitch in and make use of it? Idk, just a thought.

    The pants look to be made from maybe Gabardine? Doesn't look heavy enough to be Canvas or Denium? And it seems to be the same fabric for the pants as for the jacket, based on this picture.

    I so want to make her costumes! She certainly seems like she's going to be an amazing character, Han Solo-like with a dash of class. :D

    Here's a gallery of the HR's pulled together from the toyfair showing of the costume -

    whilst the colouring is obviously inaccurate due to the lighting we now have the trailer to colour match from.

    Yeah - I had a look at some gabardines in a fabric store today and they'd work well; it could also be a heavy cotton sateen. That can look quite matte once it's weathered.

    I hadn't thought of that. Also a possibility since her costume seems to contain mostly cotton fabrics. But considering the wide usage of Gabardine in men's pants, and her overall 'look', and the fact that I wouldn't have to weather it, I'm probably just going to go with Gabardine and call it a day.

    Also - just so we have the info here too, CarpElgin identified the gloves as altered Black Diamond Stone climbing gloves. Based on the visible stitch work, I'm inclined to agree.

    Thanks for the info on the gloves! They are currently out of stock - hopefully will be restocked soon. It looks like the left glove has a circle cut out with two different colored leathers sewn in it' place while the right hand only has additional stitching added to it. Am I seeing that correctly?

    Just google them. There's a few other sellers out there, some a bit cheaper. And yeah, that's what it looks like. But I kind of wonder if this is like what happened with Rey's costume and some of the pieces on display weren't exactly correct? But it's possible they put spandex in there or something for her right hand movement? Idk. Talking out my * now. Anyone else have any thoughts?

    I'm throwing together a quick costume for a local con here in Melbourne next weekend; going for leather riding gaiters (plus some extra straps and buckles) over my old "Mad Max" boots for the boots/greaves. To me it looks like some sort of gaiter over the top of a standard work book, but who knows! None of the shots have drifted far enough south to get a decent look :lol

    Here's a ridiculously hi-res version of the cast photo, some good detail on the pants and jacket/vest. Am now wondering if the "gaiters" are in fact just a pleated/pintucked section of the pants with a strap/buckle at the knee?

    Screen Shot 2016-04-09 at 1.48.55 pm.png

    Pumping the exposure and contrast right up suggests it is fabric/pants (With apologies to the cinematographer and production designer)

    Strap on the right lapel (left in this photo) looks like a Rok Strap:

    They used to be called shearers boots, kind of like a welders boot with the top flap to stop sparks getting into the laces. Some biker boots have that flap too - I'm interested in the ski boot style closure on the front strap. I think it would be hard to find a very good match, you'd have to find "close enough" then modify, if you were so inclined! :lol

    The best matches for off-the-shelf I've found are

    Yeah, not that it means anything, but I did take a look at the cast photo and the left glove does look like it's only stitching. But like you said who knows what last minute changes were made.

    Looks like old computer wires to me or something similar based on the connector at the bottom.

    Could also be just regular draw-strings. Does remind me of a sleeved molex connector, though... except for the right-angle.
    Oooh. That slider buckle on each pants leg is the same as the adjustment buckle of the X-wing pilot's flak vest. A very common type.

    After about a month of google searches and staring at those boots, I'm leaning towards thinking the flap closures were either added to existing low lace-up combat boots, or the boots were custom.

    The boots that go with Diego Luna's costume have very similar closures (two wide panels) but the boot construction itself is slightly different. (I need to pull up the images off my computer this afternoon.)

    Laubi, posted a great set of photos from the toy faire in a different Rogue One thread. And there are some fantastic closeup photos of all of the costumes there. (Look in the SW-R1-HD subfolder for the high def ones.) -- These are all from that set.

    Do we think hers are the butter colored that have been weathered/dyed? Or do we think they're the black?

    - - - Updated - - -

    There's certainly not one on the front. unless those sets of rivets on her right are actually snaps and not just decorative?

    EDITED:

    Maybe not. That image of her from behind seems to suggest there's a clasp of some sort on her right side. And the rivets on the front arent' laying like there's two pieces of leather meeting there.

    Very true. Now to figure out sizing... hrm. Girl hands make this harder.

    ALSO I am looking again at her gloves and it looks like they just replaced the strap on them entirely. they got rid of the hole and the embroidered logo, added snap and stitching - no way they could have done all of that with the original strap.

    There's definitely something going on closure-wise her side, but it's hard to tell exactly what:

    I have skinny long girl hands, too. (7" wide, 7.5" long.) The XS pair I have are a little bit wide and a bit short, so if you have longer fingers, you might want to go with the S.

    Still need to pick up some spare goat? leather for the new wrist strap, and plan on using the original to test the stain/dye options.

    Mine are 7.5 wide and about 6.5 long. I ended up buying the XS, which should hopefully work. I'll let you guys know when they come in. SO EXCITED. THE FIRST PIECE OF THE PUZZLE.

    Looks like they've been weathered / softened maybe with mink oil or brown color Pecard's leather treatment (my gut tells me mink oil, but ...). I purchased the natural color gloves and have both Pecard's brown leather conditioner and mink oil. I'm going to try using the Pecards on the palms first and see how they respond. the difficult part will be creating a wrist gather that matches. Looks like I'll have another trip to the Tandy shop once the gloves arrive.

    Ahh, this thread! Exactly why I just popped by.. I've only watched the trailer about 10 times now, and decided her costume would be amazing to make. There's some interesting speculation about how Jyn fits into the overall plot of the new trilogy as well which could be fantastic. I won't go into that, but was originally going to wear my Rey to the premiere...now I'm not sure! I hope there's an affordable way I can put this together by December.

    You all have some great resources so far. I'll probably start a Pinterest board like I did for Rey if anyone wants the link. Might be fun to do a collaboration too. I found that was a good way to keep the ideas from the original Rey thread organized for my build. Definitely updating the first post will help too :) Great work so far!!! I hope to contribute in the coming weeks and months.

    I've cut out her jacket, and I'm just doing her vest, top, pants, shoes, neck wrap, belt, and gloves as a way to go a bit easier on my wallet. Maybe that might be the way to go for you too. I'll also be wearing mine in September at Dragoncon so the less layers for me the better. xD
