Iíve had my TFA Kylo for a few years now and itís time to work on a new approved costume for 501st and RL: ROTS Anakin/Vader! Iíve figured out the fabric for the outer tunic/Obi/cloth tabards, found passable boots, custom props glove and belt, dickies pants, and found some decent wool for the cloak. The biggest thing Iím worried about is the inner tunic.

The CRL says the fabric is a ďSilk/bubble gauze type textured fabric.Ē So I picked up a swatch of this fabric I saw somewhere on these forums:

https://www.dharmatrading.com/fabric/cotton/cotton-bubble-gauze-50-inch.html

It looks pretty good especially double layered. Unfortunately I canít really make out the texture on any images I see of the actual tunic (a lot of the decent references were on sites that no longer exist). What do yíall think? Does this work? Is there a better option that I havenít seen yet? Any input on any part of this costume is welcome! Thanks!

I would say the dharma gauze you found is less textured than the original, but close enough if you double it. With all the Prequel fabrics, the expectation is usually just that you get close, rather than match the exact screen used fabric (especially since so many were custom made...)

Yeah thatís kinda what I was guessing. Thank you for your input!! Iíll definitely be doubling it. The sample I received looks really neat when doubled. I might order a yard to test dying and see how it looks.

Thank you SO much for these!! I think the Bubble Gauze from Dharma is the closest thing Iíve seen so far to the screen used fabric. Just gotta layer it up. Luckily itís not terribly pricey!
