More pics here, especially of her hair!

Here's my take on Leia in the outfit she wore towards the end of ESB - essentially her hoth outfit without the jacket and a different hairdo and shoes Smile

Her hair is my favorite part and my first mod. The stickers/decals are not so successful, but they honestly do look better in person Wink

Anyway, let me know what you think - as if I need to ask!

All the best

Nice work! I love the hair! The decals look a little faded/light, but if that's what you were aiming for, good job! Very Happy
The torso color works really well here.

Amazing work on the hair. Was it custom-made? If that's true, even more awesomer.

I made her hair - I chopped the poytail off a ponytail wig and then used "green stuff" (two part epoxy putty) to make the bun and braids. Took me a couple of goes to get the look nearly right - I've got loads of ponytail wigs I can practice on! Smile

That's awesome!
Did you have a template for forming the hair or was it all done free-hand?

All free-hand!

I tried various methods of creating the hair (have you ever tried plaiting/braiding really thin strips of putty? Don't bother is my advice Smile )

I found the best way was make two very thin rolled out 'sausages' of putty, then just twist them together. It givess the right impression without the technical hassles!

Fantastic, I think it's the best original headpiece I've seen.
