What do people do for the pants? As a generic Jedi, I've worn khakis. I feel like I could wear a variation of them again for this costume.

Second, does the material of the robe matter that much? As in, I'm not sure I want a heavy wool robe for this, but if it's the difference in getting accepted, I'll go with it.


Thanks!

Personally I've always made my own pants for all of my costumes, but I know a lot of Legion members use Dickies (as were used in the film) or find some sort of off the shelf equivalent.

As for the robe I don't know what the Legion requirements are but ideally you're going to want a wool or wool like fabric for your robe so that it has the correct drape and weight. I believe for Legion members in hotter climates some have robes made of lighter weight fabrics so as to not overheat. I suspect if they use wool it would be made of a suiting weight rather than coat weight to help with this.

I have one made from suiting-weight wool.
it doesn't get too too hot. it's actually not that bad.

I've noticed a lot of people use linen as a substitute.
(but you'll want to invest in a garment steamer,
it tends to wrinkle more than wool).

I am leaning towards wool. I think it looks fantastic when I've seen others wear that type of robe.

My robe is cotton and was approved last Sunday.
