Hi!

I have been a RL member for about a year now and I believe I am finally ready to take the plunge here and have a shot at building Kenobi. Plus my loving wife puts up with me and has agreed (or she just wants me to finally shut-up about it!) Wink

I have been looking at fabrics for the past 6 months and have narrowed it down to one. It is a cream/ivory colored, loose knit, cotton blend weave that has a puckery texture to it. If sewn right with the vertical striations, it will look quite close to Kenobi's. The big plus is that it is much easier to care for, it has a self-backing material and it sews better then the regular cotton gauze! I am currently working with a seamstress on this for the OT, tabbards and obi.



My generic belt will suffice as I have the correct buckle, the required 8 studs and it is the proper shade of brown.


I have acquired the 4 belt pouches from a friend in the hobby who was retiring from his Kenobi impression. Sad




I have had a proper pleated collar shirt made in the dark brown color with the long sleeves.



I had the bottom ends of the sleeves puckered to give the look of length and "bunchiness" when exposed. Very Happy


First body shot with khaki pants and under tunic.

Looks like you're off to a great start so far! Others can provide much more detailed expertise than me, but best of luck with your build! Very Happy
