Imperial Officer

Source: Star Wars Original Trilogy

Completed: September 2007

After attending Celebration 3 in April 2005, I really liked the look of the Imperial Officers. Being still a novice costumer, I purchased a hat, tunic and belt buckle from a 501st member. I purchased black pants, a black leather belt and leather riding boots to complete the costume. My husband made the code cylinders and rank badge for me. In July 2005, I joined the 501st Legion as ID-0947. I really enjoyed being able to troop alongside my husband as an Imperial - we joined the 501st 'Joint Ops' group for couples in the Legion.

After improving my sewing skills on a few other costumes, I decided to redo the tunic in September 2007. I used a commercial pattern (McCalls 4596), which required a few alterations. I ended up sewing it in 2 days, rushing to get it finished for an event. I'm happy with the way it worked out (considering the time constraint), but I do plan to remake the outfit in a better fabric.
