Just starting out with my Ben cosplay and had some questions to start with...

I've found some instructions on how to make the clothes themselves and will sew it from old sheets first, så i can tweak it to fit and get patterns.
But I can't seem to find tips on what fabric to use... Is Linen and wool OK?

I'm printing my lightsabre with these files https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:111687
Would that be OK? (I know some of you out there doesn't like 3d printed props, but will it pass?)

Making the belt, pouch and hook shouldn't be too much of a problem, but what about the turtleneck?
Do you sew it yourselves and if so, it there any patters available? (And what fabric do you use?)

Thinking about the turtleneck.

Would this model be acceptable (when dyed brown)
