Thanks, everybody! Very touched by your warm welcoming!
Both my dress, boots, belt and hair are in the making and on it's way and I'm soooo excited. Ordered a gun replica, too. Just to look as authentic as possible, I've even ordered tinted lences for me (I have green eyes but Leia's are brown, obviously). Could you, please, tell me how exactly do I proceed, once my pieces are all thogether? How long time does the approvement process usually take?
You'll have to register on the Rebel legion forum and apply from that site. You'll need high quality pics of yourself in your costume from all four angles+one cool pose pic for your profile. The more pics the better. Post your pictures on a image hosting site such as photo bucket or something similar. Then you can link the pictures to your application.
It usually doesn't take long to get a response. My Leia took about two days but Mara took maybe 2 weeks or something. It depends on how much work the judges have. http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/index.php
