Old Ben costume from episode 4.
Outer robe and inner tunica made from
old cotton fabrics. Inner tunica, tabbards
and obi is a thick natural colored fabric
woven to look similar to raw silk. Outer
robe is a kind of tighly woven canvas that
has been dyed dark brown. No
weathering has been done to the tunica
yet in fear of ruining it. The outer robe
has been run several times in the
washing machine and dry tumbler to
make it look a little worn.
Belt is 2" leather with a self made
bucklet, banana pouch, saber hook and
the other details.
Light saber is scratch build using 3D
printer and metal parts. It has a
controller board running Lightsaber OS
with realistic sound, motion detection and
a bright 150ps. LED string blade. I have
also made a dummy saber handle that
can hang from the belt saber hook, the
LED blade is to long for this and not
possible to remove.
Shoes are brown leather and nicely worn.
I have tried to make the costume as
screen accurate I could with the available
materials and my sewing and building
I will trim the beard and color both beard
and hair when using the costume, but did
not do this for the pictures. I am also a
bit on the tall and skinny side compared
to Sir Allec and look maybe more like Obi
Wan from episode 1-3, but could possibly
be a younger and taller Old Ben?
