Because my previous WIP thread got turned into more of a general build and dissection thread, I’m starting this new one. I have a basic costume built, but it needs a couple of upgrades before I actually submit it. I wore it at a fun troop/Halloween carnival to make sure it stood up to trooping stress and looked good. Here is what I have so far.



My list of necessary upgrades is as follows:
Shirt. Need to make the bib self-lined and reinforce the collar.
Belt. Need to re-sew it, add the lightsaber clip, and make the actual buckle. The pouch will also be remade.
Cloak. It’s a hot mess and I need to remake it.
Hand. Going to make actual sintra armor pieces for it and foam details.
Hair. I need a cut and a little styling.

What say you?

So, I found a thing. It was purchased from a company whose warehouse is literally a mile from Pinewood Studios. Guess what… It’s a burlap made from cotton!

Here’s the material unwashed. Looks like I found something.


Here’s the unwashed material in the light. Looks like the right material.


The washed material looks identical to what we saw in the movie.


The material after my lovely wife has ironed it. I called the company and they said they were contractually ordered not to say whether or not it was the material used in the movie. In other words…

It sounds like you already know what to work on. Smile Can't wait to see how it turns out when all done.
