I knew I wanted to create an outfit inspired by Hera Syndulla from Star Wars Rebels as soon as I tackled First Order Agent, Bazine Netal back in April. Hera is one of my favorite characters from Rebels. I admire her leadership abilities, piloting skills, and the love and devotion she has for every member of the Ghost Crew. I thought her species and costume would be fun to interpret into an everyday Fall ensemble and I couldn't be happier with the results!

I've never owned a jumpsuit and wondered if finding one in a close enough color to Hera's would be obtainable. After a lot of shopping around, I found one I was pleased with from Forever 21 and it just so happens to be one of the most comfortable pieces of clothing I own! I also found the perfect grey ribbed turtleneck from Top Shop to wear underneath. While asking my family's opinion on the pieces I had found so far, one of them asked me if I'd wear the outfit out. I replied, "Yes!". Part of creating these Star Wars character inspired outfits is challenging myself to find tangible ways to wear and represent a character I love in my day-to-day life.

Notice the mint green nails? I wanted to have something that resembled the beauty of Hera's skin color in this look.

Originally, I was going to wear my hair in two "high" pigtails, which would have better depicted Hera's lekkus (aka head tails). But I had to remind myself that I was not cosplaying and questioned whether I'd actually wear my hair out that way. In the end, I was quite satisfied with how my hair turned out and felt that the headband (Forever 21) and low pigtails still paid homage to Hera in a modern-day way.

The over-sized glasses are one of my favorite parts about this outfit. Hera's large round goggles are such a prominent accessory and I knew that I had to find the perfect pair (Sunglass Spot) to do them justice!

The boots were the very last purchase made, and goodness did they take long to find! I ended up purchasing them on sale for $10 at Forever 21 and as soon as I tried them on, I knew my outfit was complete. I brought out a lot of the grey in Hera's outfit in this look, but I felt a grey boot would be too much. I also didn't feel brown boots would compliment the rest of the pieces so I opted for a much lighter hue within that same color family. It's a very neutral colored boot that can be paired with almost anything!

I hope you enjoyed my newest Star Wars OOTD! Tweet me or leave a comment below and let me know what you think. If you're interested in more Star Wars fashion, hit the "Style" tab on the navigation bar above.

Special Thanks: I'd like to thank my husband for always supporting me and taking my photos, Ryan Baxter from Force Cult for assisting me in photo editing, and Vanessa Marshall for bringing the character of Hera to life in such a beautiful and valiant way.
