    I grabbed a few phone photos of the costume display at Awesome Con this weekend. Hope they help!

    Thanks for these. It's get to see close details! So that belt...what is happening? It's prety clear it doesn't loop back through the slits. You can see that here but also in screenshots from the movie. Makes sense... The costume is thicker in the waist and it helps too have the holster hang lower. But if you look at the top strap of the belt the d rings seen flipped...or the strap is threaded through to the back side. I dunno, Kristen is the resident Rey belt Jedi. Do you have any insights on how it's made out sized?

    I can't find the pictures of the full back but Anovos has the rear seams on the tunic correct as well.

    This is simply a matter of the belt being put on the mannequin wrong.

    This is something for everyone to remember: these display mannequins are not dressed by people that worked on the film...so many of these odd things we see are due to that.

    You can see that whoever put the belt on just looped the tail through both rings and tucked it under the belt because they didn't know how it was supposed to go.

    As far as seeing that in the film... I have only seen it that way on her lower portion and I think that was done to let the holster hang where they wanted it so it didn't interfere with the tunic.

    Why the holster is even there without the blaster is an entirely different question :P

    I used to say the same until I saw this screenshot from the film. You see that the belt doesn't go through the slits on the bottom. Looks like one on the top. I got so confused. Just makes me think there is also a sizing issue. But I yield to your knowledge Kristen

    Oh and yes, what is up with the holster but no blaster? Good grief.

    No I totally agree that the bulkiness of the hero costume is likely why it's only through one slit on the top and no slits on the bottom.

    I just meant the reason the tails don't show at all on the costume display is because whomever dressed it did it wrong :P

    Noooo!

    I don't have Facebook and probably never will, so I'm missing out on ALL of this!

    On a belt related question, how many of you have issues with the tails not staying tucked in the slits? I've had to rubber band mine to make them stay when I have something on the bottom loop of the belt.

    I find the discreet use of some stick-on velcro can help in such cases

    Oh wow, she looks so Awsome!
    So glad the lenses got put to good use.
    Hopefully a new project starts soon that we all can get back on helping each other out.
    That first Rey thread, is by far the best one I've been part of.
    Hope to hear more from you.
    Robert

    BTW, you find any advice you wanna share on her Obi, drop me a line.

    I have never experienced this..... throughout the dozens of belts I've made. Perhaps the slits you're cutting are too big for the tails?

    Quite possibly. I hadn't thought of that. It was my first time making something that needed slits like that. I was really surprised, too. I've been using little black rubber bands as stoppers to keep it from slipping, and so far that's working. Might be a confirmation of the slits being too big, though. It's really only an issue on the bottom of the belt where the pouch or holster is. It seems to be the weight of the item.

    So, a few things:

    On the belt, I haven't had issues with slipping, BUT I did have a 501st member help me dress the other day, and he threaded the belt wrong. Like Kristen said, sometimes folks just don't know how it's supposed to go, so they guess.

    On the holster, well *eye roll*. So dumb. On so many levels. Kind of like making a brand new belt while in transit on the Falcon. But it is what it is, I guess.

    And something new that I discovered. Might not be new knowledge, but I'm not on Facebook, either, so...anyway...a friend sent me screencaps of a tutorial from FB about how to make the seams in the trousers. I did so with a practice pair and messed them up, so then I did another pair, and tried something else. I didn't cut them. The tutorials I've seen have you cutting the knees and then sewing them back together to make the seams, but I just put the pants on inside out, drew the chalk lines I wanted, took them off and neatened the lines up, then sewed the seams in. That way, if you mess up, you just pick them out and redo them. No muss, no fuss. Super easy and took all of half an hour.

    Also, thanks for the pic above. Makes the belt/holster easier to see. I made a new belt for this version of Rey, and I didn't know about the not feeding it through on the bottom (I already do that on my regular Rey costumes, due to my making the belt almost too small - so I overcompensated on this one and it was too long at first), so I have both belts fed like usual, but I can change that if I have to.

    Anyway, PICS! I just did links to make the page easier...

    The knee seams, made using that trick above: https://flic.kr/p/269979B

    Boots made from $25 boots from EBay and another view of the pants: https://flic.kr/p/253ZZ5U

    Front: https://flic.kr/p/265phYY

    Back: https://flic.kr/p/269979M

    Belt/Holster: https://flic.kr/p/265pgBE

    Arm Wraps: https://flic.kr/p/23oioGh

    Bracer: https://flic.kr/p/23oip51

    My source materials were: Amazon blanket dyed from a RIT color formula for the tunic, Desert Gauze by Yaya Han from Joann for the tabard wrap, a white cotton dyed grey for the obi, made the belt from scratch using leather/twine/waxed cord, Old Navy stretch jeans (scored for $2 at the thrift shop!) with added seams and no cutting anything, modified boots from eBay, Boots bandages weathered, made the bracer from scratch (a new one, as my old one from previous Reys was...meh), holster from previous version of Rey. shirt was just a basic wrapped v-neck I made - I don't remember the fabric.

    Considering this for the tab on my latest bracer, as it likes to slip a bit.

    Ha! Nice. Hit-Girl is actually how I found this forum. Was looking for advice on the Mindy Stick back in the day.
