Has anyone seen the ones from Galaxy's Edge?


I hear they're horribly oversized

The kind you got should definitely work. From what I've seen on the galaxy's edge ones, they aren't ideal, but would likely pass as long as they look proportional on your belt.


I was worried about that. The hook on them looks a bit "off" to me. I think I'll just stick with the ones I have. They fit my belt perfectly.


I can't imagine the Galaxy's Edge food pellets would be approvable. They're gigantic, and hooks are enormous, too. They look good in a photo, but when you see them in person, you realize just how huge they are. I was excited to see them, but very disappointed when I actually held the box in my hands.

I finished my 2nd (small pouch). Really happy with the results besides the color. Its a bit off next to my 1st (tall pouch) even though I used the same dye.






I also tried and failed horribly with my breather pouch. So now its time to take a 3rd shot at that.

Thank you! I did plan to do a tutorial in the near future. So Im just about done with the breather pouch. I wanted to do a test fitting to see how the belt looked with the tunic on. I cant wait to get the fabric to do my final Outer Tunic. Until then this is the stand in. (Skirt area and sleeves need to be longer) I did get the tabbards to sit right in the front.







This image is like the ONLY pic I could find of the back of Windu's costume. I think I got pretty close as far as the layout. I did add the studs on the right after the pics were taken. I do wish the breather pouch was on the right.

I'm about ready to start on the my boots. There is only 1 option out there when I google Windu boots. And for the price I don't feel they are accurate enough. So my next thought is to buy a "Base" boot and build on top of it to replicate Windu's boots. I found 2 potential boots. Asking for opinions on which boot I should use.

Boot #1

Basic brown costume boot. This one will be easy to mod..

Boot #2

This boot already has the wrinkles on them.

In the end I think I could make either pair work. What do you all think?

The mockup is mostly looking good. My main concerns are the skirt length (this still looks a bit short to me) and the back of the tabards (they should end at the obi, rather than continuing a bit beyond). The wrinkle structure of the obi is looking great. As for the boots - I am definitely finding some more accurate ones when I google, so it might be worth looking at other vendors, but if you were going to mod one of the two you linked, I would provide go with the first as a base boot rather than the second. That wrinkling at the ankle will develope naturally, and I worry about the texture of the material on the second.

Thank you. Yes I know the skirt needs to be longer and the sleeves could be longer also. The patterns have already been fixed. Just haven't had the money yet for the real fabric. the tabbards, I just didn't cut them. I know they need to stop under the obi. Plus I didn't want to cut them until I was happy with the length in the front.


The boots...………. If you mean these


For that price, they should be more accurate IMO. I feel I can capture the same look if not better for the same price if not cheaper. Plus Im more of a DIY'er. I appreciate your feedback.
