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!
