Hey Everyone,

I'm a 501st member (Imperial Guard) that's planning to join the Rebel Legion. I'm considering a Corran Horn Jedi costume (the green one) and I'd welcome any advice you might have. I've reviewed the costume standards and they seem to be fairly straightforward, but help from people who have done this is always incredibly valuable.

I haven't seen any for sale that would meet costume standards, so I'm going to have a friend make one for me. Does anyone have suggestions as to a pattern type or even a specific pattern? Also, as this will be my first Jedi costume, are there suggestions as to pattern "tweeks" that I should know about?

I would have to purchase the belt and saber, so if you have suggestions about vendors and/or specific ones for those, please feel free to private message me.

Thanks in advance.

this drawing will give your friend a general idea of how-to assemble a tunic.
your measurements will vary.

^^ the numbers shown in purple yielded the tunic shown here: (roughly a men's L/XL):

again: your measurements will vary. but this will give you an idea of the general construction method.
(note: drawing is NOT to scale -- it's just a rough sketch).



hope this helps. cheers.

Thanks for the quick response!

Since Corran's tunic is a little different from the generic jedi tunic, will this still work? I'm thinking specifically of the center panel of the inner tunic that goes a little lower and the fact that the outer tunic joins at the top and spreads out as it goes down.

oh I thought he just wore a regular tunic. LOL (my bad) Razz

I checked some reference images just now, and you're right, his tunic set is a bit different than most.

so no, a "generic" tunic in green won't work Razz



his OT here, is a bit like Luke ROTJ..



..maybe this thread might help?

For the middle layer (light green), do you think I could do a more standard shirt cut (rather than an open tunic) that has a panel of the same material in the front? That would accomplish that lower center piece. Or, could I attached the center panel to the shirt itself? I was picturing a hidden velcro closure. It would keep the under layer from getting shifted too much. From the few pictures there are, it seems like it isn't too many pieces.

I'm guessing the dark green part would be a somewhat standard vest pattern?

Thanks Ryan.

Yes, I wrote the RL Costume Standard for it as well.

I have shared several things with Devlin via pm.

As to the tabard, it is like a vest. It goes over the shoulder, has an opening for the arms, and is connected under the arms.

Some of the better references:

and this from The New Essential Guide to Characters are great.

https://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/a/a3/CorranHorn-NEGTC2.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20110127012037

Also:

Unfortunately Corran is pictured often but usually has his cloak on over the top. This from Mara Jade's funeral (https://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/a/a1/Mara-funeral.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20071203073736)


The SW Mini is good for seeing the back. He's sitting on my self here.









As noted, my wife and I have made several of this costume, do tell if we can help.

Thank you, Michael; this is very helpful. I found these pics once on the kjo site, but when I went to find them again, I didn't have any luck.

I'm going to meet with my seamstress friend next week to go over costume details, but she said she didn't think it would be a problem. Would you be able to send me photos of your tunic(s) and tabard separately? If you have a pattern that you purchased/made that you could share with me as well, that would be wonderful. If not, I think she can figure it out from some detailed photos (front and back). PM is find, if you would prefer.

For the belt, I found a buckle and rivets that I think will work by putting them on a new belt. Did you make or purchase your belt? I would imagine that the closure has to be somewhat hidden in the back since the front doesn't allow for any additional slack. Did you use hidden velcro? A flat buckle like the front?

For the boots, I have a pair of brown boots that fasten with a thin cord on the side. There are no buttons, buckles, zippers, etc. I've used them very successfully with a medieval costume in the past. They are not rubber and though they're not exactly like the picture, I think they'll fit the aesthetic.


Thoughts?

I address the top in pm.

I made my belts (one to match each version in references). The buckles are functional not decorative so they fasten there.

Can you share an image of the boots?

Here are the two belt buckles that I was looking at:

I would just use an existing belt and add rivets:
