Hi there!!!

I am 26 year old geek working in the world of finance. I also work for Youmacon (large anime convention - Detroit) annually. The idea of cosplay and costuming is not new to me...however my sewing level is 1. I can pin stuff together and sew a straight stitch and I can hand sew patches onto a scout uniform... that's all I got. Then comes the BIG issue...

My measurements... 54 chest, 58 natural waist (belly button) and i am 6,2.

I have no idea how to enlarge a pattern if i wanted to. I have access to a sewing machine, I just lack confidence in my ability to do the task.

1. So, are there people who would be willing to commission the under tunic, Outer tunic, tabards and obi?

2. Are there canon costumes that would pass requirements for sale online?

I found an "Unbleached Oatmeal Osnaburg 100% Cotton Jedi Style Tunic Set" on Twin Rose for $130... are these acceptable, will they fit?


HELP!!! I am clueless...

Hey Toby,
Sorry for the delayed response.

If you're looking for a Jedi costume, your best bet would be to go onto the Jedi forums here and post your question. There are several people who you can commission Jedi outfits from that will custom make them to your size. We do have larger Jedi in our base so I know it can be done. The people in the Jedi forums would be better suited to point you towards the right maker. All the best!!
