So it's been a long time, and I'm finally working on my husband's (yes, I married him since I started the costume...) KotOR Jedi costume. I assembled most of the belt tonight. I still need to finish the closure bit, but I want to try it on him with the costume first so I get the fit right.

That's great! I love seeing more KotOR Jedi.

For the shoulders, I used a piece of black leather that was pretty thick to begin with. I cut it in the shape I wanted, and then I soaked it in water until it started to sink. This makes it shapeable.



I wrapped it around something kind of round, stretched it, and held it in place for a while to get the curve I wanted, bent it in the middle, and then put some rubber bands around it to hold it's shape while it dried.



I attached it to the shoulder with some industrial sticky-back velcro, the kind people often use on patches.

For the bracers, I used a much thinner black leather. After I figured out a pattern I wanted out of paper, I cut it out of leather and then sewed it together with a very small seam allowance on my sewing machine. I also soaked these to stretch the hand opening so that they would go on easier. When sewing leather on your sewing machine, you'll want a special organ needle for leather and fairly strong thread.
