First, The Stuff You Can Buy...
WigWe wanted to show that Stacey had been on Dagobah long enough for her hair to grow out again.
Amy's hair was still short, so we bought a wig that matched the color of her bangs.
Late in production Amy cut her hair shorter, so we added bangs to the wig as well.
Original wig"Luscious" from Easihair.com
Wig after styling and braidingwith bangs added (like these)
Pink lizardskin headband added over wig headband
|Random braids, beads, and lacings
UndershirtThe undershirt was designed to look like Stacey's rhinestoned t-shirt from
Pink Five Strikes Back after a year in the swamps of Dagobah.
Any pink shirt will probably be fine, but for the record, we used a pink "muscle tank" from American Apparel
Save a scrap of shirt fabric
to make a wristband for the right wrist.
This is where Stacey keeps her communicator.
You can't see it because there actually
isn't one, because it's only a movie.
PantsBlack stretch riding pants with suede inner-knee patches.
|There are a number of similar riding pants on the market,
but for the record these were Devon-Aire ladies riding breeches
BootsDr. Scholl's "Stash" boots in black suede
Model # SKU 125104
Unfortunately they don't make these anymore, so
|Strip of black suede added to cover zippers.
|Left boot pocket bead decorations
|Ring necklace on right boot (see below)

The Stuff You'll Have To Make
First, Get Some LeatherTo make the rest of the costume, you'll need three kinds of leather.
We got ours as surplus on eBay from an upholstery company.
|black faux ostrich leather
for vest and saber grip
|pink faux lizardskin
for vest, headband, saber grip,
belt, and ring necklaces
|brown faux snakeskin
for belt pouches
VestDesigned to look hand-made from Dagobah lizardskins.
Yes, there are pink lizards on Dagobah. It's a known fact.
Ostrich leather with pink lizardskin trim, laced with rawhide and heavy pink thread.
BeltsThe two main belts were found in the dollar bin of a discount clothing store.
No manufacturer markings on them, so no idea where they came from.
You'll just have to re-create them however you can.
Belt #1 Brown stitched leather with double clasps
Belt #2 Black leather squares with leather lacing
Belt #3 Pink lizardskin
|Belt #1 clips together
Belt #2 lacings tie loosely together
|Belt pouches with bone and claw clasps
Covertec/Krusell lightsaber belt clip
#58114 or #58115
|Alternating silver and brass rings, braided
though a strip of pink lizardskin.
|Make another for the right boot.
SaberPlumbing fittings, metal and rubber rings, and leather grip
|I sometimes make replicas of the saber from my stockpile of original parts - if you're interested in buying one let me know.
MacrobinocularsNever actually worn with the costume in the movie, but if you're interested,
I threw together the binocular prop using junk from my garage.
1. Folding binoculars - the actual pair was made by Minolta, but they look like the ones pictured.
2. Empty bottle of STP Carburetor Treatment
3. LED holders and a photoresistor from Radio Shack
4. Black spray paint and electrical tape
