Character/Costume Description

The breakdown...

The costume: Captain Carter's
(www.captaincarter.com)
Having stepped away from the costuming
world, she has for years been recognized
as one of the top costumers for screen
accurate costumes... Having approached
her 6 months ago she made all that you
see.

Tunics:
The chocolate brown undertunic with a
double collar, beige crinkle outer tunic
(with shoulder tucks), tabbards (extending
only to waist in back) and obi sash. She
also lined the outer tunic with a silk
lining... very smooth and silky ...just like
the original.

Robe:
This is interesting.. because it seems to be
one of the most debateable things and
hard to replicate piece of the costume to
make. The wool is called Melton... and is
only found overseas now (the wooling
mills in the US have discontinued it). On
the COW (crazyoldwizards forum), Diego
(aka theRebelAgent)... Diego was able to
locate a wool fabric that was imported to
Argentina from Uraguay that seems to
have the closest color and double sided
texture that the original ROTS robe had...
the reference? In the Limited Edition of the
book, Dressing a Galaxy, there were fabric
swatches of various costumes through out
the saga.. INCLUDING the fabrics to Obi-
Wan's ROTS costume... and therefore the
robe.
Here is the comparison:

TID=383&title=fs-obiwan-kenobi-rots-
robe-fabric-sold-out

Now he didn't have anymore left to sell
me... but he did send me a swatch to
match fabric here in the US. Captain
Carters then went to work... searching and
searching for months... finally sending me
7 swatches that were the top candidates...
the robe I wore., reflects that... a beautiful
Robe, with wonderful drape, as accurate a
color as to the one on screen and a very
rich material WITH shoulder tucks...

Pants:
mustared/medium colored Khakis

Boots:
Reddish brown leather boots with spats,
knee high; 1 strap at ankle.
There have been different versions over
the years... MotorCowboys....Diaz... come
to mind. I've seen Motorcowboys version
in person... the color was off.. and the
leather not right... through COW I find
this guy in Peru... Daniel (jdos_p on
eBay)... the reviews on the COW were
great... his was the most accuate, in color,
fit, Plus that buttery soft leather that we've
all been looking for... PLUS he made mine
convertible to switch between the different
Episodes... by making the top 3 straps
removeable.


Here is my review of the boots:

vendor-on-ebay

Belt:
Reddish brown leather belt with smaller
inner strap held by 8 silver button studs
and silver buckle.
Diego ....being the king of details makes
the most accurate belt and pouches, so of
course I wen through him for those...
The buckle, is a Parks Saberkit Buckle...
which will do until I get the more accurate
one being made through Diego...
The pouches (fully functional: 1 Comlink
Ribbed Pouch, 1 Mechanical Ribbed Pouch
, 1 Small Pouch, 1 Hook Pouch, 1Obi-Wan
Leather pouch, 2 sets of his Jedi Food and
Energy Capsules (These capsules were
made with the Staedtler� Liquid
Star 324 roller ball pen cap ( same as
Liquid Point 415) and a hemispherical
acrylic dome from Plastruct Inc.; the same
material as the originals. )

Accssories:

Aquabreather A99: Nocturne Armory
(www.nocturnearmory.com)
There are two versions of this...the on
screen version, and the one that is on the
travelling Starw Wars displays... I chose
the on screen version.

Comlink: Raptor Arts (Raptorarts.com)
I added the correct antane pins on it (part
number M39029/5-115 connector pin)

Holoprojector: (Modeleers from theRPF)
An AWESOME piece to the costume... the
details on this are amazing ...especially
the backside!!!

Covertec Clip: TheCustomSaberShop
Same as the original

Lightsaber:
Parks MKIII converted by LDM... this is
cool too... since it is a fully functional
saber WITH a thin neck AND a Crystal
chamber. It sort of is a hybrid... since it
has the bubble strip to make it sort of like
a New Hope saber too...swappable with a
mirrored circuit board from TFXstudios in
Australia...to make it more ROTS...... The
copper neck gives it a more ROTS look to
it too.
