Jaina Solo Inspired Evening Wear by jediprincess
Jaina Solo Inspired Evening Wear
I designed this dress for the Her Universe Fashion Show competition for San Diego Comic Con, but I chickened out of submitting it at the last minute. I finally decided to post it here, because I felt ashamed that I was such a chicken.
In any case, this dress is inspired by the Star Wars EU character Jaina Solo, the daughter of Princess Leia and Han Solo. An ace starfighter pilot and the Sword of the Jedi, Jaina is a strong and determined young woman. She's been my idol ever since the Young Jedi Knights books, and I grew to love her even more as her character developed. And yes, I am a complete Jag + Jaina shipper.

I decided on basing this dress on the famous illustration from the offical guide of characters, except I decided to throw in homage to her lightsaber blade's color by making the dress accents purple. I imagine the hairstyle for this dress either this braided headband style, or a high Greek-style ponytail with a small braid snaking across the crown of the head and then gathered into the rest of the ponytail.

I'm sorry to all my followers that I have not been updating my account with artwork and such. I have actually been searching for a full-time job that would allow me to purchase new and cooler art supplies with which to make lovely art! However, my few idle hours have not been spent in laziness. I've been making jewelry to sell on Etsy, and I must say that I am happy with how the pieces are turning out. I've been using polymer clay to make pendants and focal pieces, as well as using twisted wire, resin, and beads. So far I have about 3 pieces/sets ready to put up for sale, and hopefully I'll have images up on here by midnight August 15. I can hardly wait to share them all with you!

On another note, my 2D creativity has been stalled for the past month or so. I just can't make satisfactory paintings or drawings, nor can I get immensely inspired to work on two-dimensional art. Hopefully that will change soon--to speed up the inspiration, are there any characters people would like me to make sort of RPG character profiles for? Here are some of my character ideas:
* Hermione Granger (I still feel guilty about the lack of HP fanart in the wake of the Deathly Hallows movie)
* Katniss Everdeen
* Alanna the Lioness
* Trisana Chandler
* Beka Cooper
* Ginny Weasley
* Fluer Delacour

So, any other suggestions?
