Costume – white shirt, black corset, blue skirt with red stripes, black tulle skirt, brown belt, Han Solo belt buckle, and black boots. I made the skirt, and belt buckle.
Han Solo was is one of my favorite characters from Star Wars. And while I love his outfit, I wanted to put a twist on it.
I started with making the infamous belt buckle. I created the shape out of clay with two holes in the middle. I placed a ribbon through them and used this to tie the buckle to the belt. I then covered it with a cut up soda can to give it the metal look.
The skirt is just a circle skirt with red stripes down either side. This is the video I watched the first time I made a circle skirt and I highly recommend it. I added an elastic waist band since my material did not have any stretch.
I ordered the shirt off of Amazon, but I had to take the small in a little since it is a guys shirt. It is still a little big but I did not want the shirt to be very fitted. The boots and the corset I already had which made things easier. I had so much fun making and photographing this outfit, it was simple but is one of my favorites to date.
