I’m not gonna lie. Ever since I started cosplaying as Rey, I’ve always wanted a X-Wing Pilot Doll. To be honest, it looks like a voodoo doll. But I can imagine little Rey just scavenging what she can and, probably because of her lack of sewing skills, she had to use found materials.
I’m sorta lucky enough to have materials on-hand except for the orange fabric (which was a kids shirt I found at a dollar store and dyed darker). I had to gauge the size of this doll by hen picture and I think it turned out well.
It looks too clean but I initially wanted to give this to Vivi, my friend’s baby. But it being my prototype, I’m scared that she might choke on the twine and burlap. I’ll let her parents borrow this one for pictures or something but I wanna give her a more baby-safe doll to keep.
Doesn’t that costume look almost done? I still have to Velcro the front part and also to put pull-away buckles on the staff strap. But overall, I love the costume! Too darn cute and I can’t wait for her to wear it.
