I'm just going to jump right in with
the shirt! The top is a bamboo/cotton
jersey that is self-lined with a v-neck.
I added the shoulder detail and
blanket stitching to all the seams.
The collar and hood are both
stonewashed silk (hood is self-lined)
and there is a decorative seam at the
collar where the hood attaches.
The tabards are silk tulle.
The obi has several layers for
structure: innermost layer is cotton
duck. Then, I wrapped the shirt fabric
around it to get a better color match.
Then, I added a wide tube of the tulle
and stitched it down in random
places to get it to be a bit more
wrinkly. It closes in the back with
large hook and eyes.
I made the pants from a stretch
white faux suede. There are seams
down the front and back of each leg
and each seam is topstitched on
either side. The kneepads have a
layer of batting inside and are sewn
directly onto the pants. For the vents
at the hem, I made facings and then
blind stitched them up so they didn't
I made all the leather pieces. The
armwraps are Tandy pigskin in
"taupe" over a canvas base. All the
other pieces are veg tan leather dyed
with Fiebing's saddle tan. They look a
bit redder in the pics than real life
due to the sunlight. The last few
pictures of the holster inside are
more true to the actual color. I added
the decorative twine "x" stitch on the
leg strap and the button stud. The
belt buckle is a 3D print.
Boots are Po-Zu linen Rey boots.
Saber is the Disney Parks Rey saber
with a leather "band-aid."
