Sabine Cosplay Resources!

Hai everyone!! It’s been awhile since I updated that Sabine cosplay o’ mine, hasn’t it? There’s still a few things that need finishing up before I post the finished kit, but it was wearable in time for the event! I’m fine with having lost the cosplay contest though. . . because I lost to a 7’ Chewbacca! There were also the “wait, are you Jango or Boba?” things to laugh about. . . and I got my favorite candies for participating — rock candy and JAPANESE KIT-KATSSSSS!!! So yeah, it was fun! Anywho, I was asked if I could share a list of my resources on this kit. So here ya are, me friends, RESOURCES. I managed to find most of the things I used, and even a few helpful extras ;3 If there’s any questions just fire away!

    Thank you sooo much for writing this up, Kitten!! I know it’s gonna be super helpful in getting together all the supplies I need as I’m getting started with this thing!! 😀
    I was hoping to get a substantial amount of planning at least done this weekend, but I found out last night that we’re making a surprise trip to visit family – and see Solo!! So I guess that’s not too bad a trade-off, haha!!
    Anyway, thanks again! And hopefully I’ll be making a WIP thread on the Mando Mercs forum soon, so if you read those you’ll be able to follow along with my work, and I do plan to write everything up on TEP at some point as well. 🙂

      You’re so welcome! If I left anything out feel free to say something. . .
      Oi, that’s the best kind of surprise trip! Have fun watching Solo!!! I saw a new clip earlier that made me slightly more excited for it. . . but I really did think that Enfys Nest was a togorian. . . *pout*
      Yey! I’ll keep an eye out for that!
