Jedi Robe America food capsules work fine, so you should be good to go there. If you happen to have a friend who is also making a Jedi, you can get a cheaper unit price for an eight pack of food capsules on amazon, but that etsy listing will work fine if it's just you.

As for what goes on the belt: you've already figured out most of it (covertech, food capsules). You just need a second pouch, and you're good to go. I personally like to get vintage ammo pouches from ebay and dye they for a cheap option.

As already stated, most store bought pants are fine. Just make sure they don't look like jeans or have pockets visible when wearing your tunic.

For boots: it depends on your shoe size. Funtasma or similar are often pretty much the only cheap option for larger feet. For small to medium feet, though, you can sometimes get actual leather boots for that price by buying ones that are technically women's sizes from Poshmark or ebay. Leather boots will last a lot longer than pleather ones, and look better as they age.

But what about these? ... Asking only because they look a bit like what was shown for Anakin's boots. (Walker 130)

those will work for generic jedi. you might need to add some velcro between the spat and the boot, just to keep the spats in place. otherwise, the spats tend to slide around when you walk.

Am I better off getting the pair without or with the spats already on them?

it depends on what your final goal is. if you're doing obi-wanIII, for example, then you'd definitely want the captain100. because the straps on walker130 are permanently attached, and obiwanIII has no straps.... but for a generic jedi then walker130 might be better. you can wear them with-or-without the spats. they actually look pretty good with the spats removed.

Last question on those boots.

I normally wear an 11 1/2 in shoe and have an 18 to 19 inch calf. Read where some suggest in these particular boots going up a size meaning instead of a 12-13 .... a 14-15?

My foot also runs slightly wider.

Any suggestions on if I should indeed go up in size?

Different question .... How are you transporting / storing the blades for your sabers around when you are wearing the hilt on your belt?

the funtasma boots might not work well for wide calves. my calves are about 16" and the boots fit snug around the calf. that might be a deal breaker.

Confused

-===-

re: sabers. I don't have too many sabers with removable blades.
for each costume, I have both : 1 belt-hanger hilt + 1 bladed saber.
(I keep the belt-hanger on the belt at all times, and hold the bladed saber in-hand).

examples:
luke saber https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img593/8946/2owp.jpg
anakin saber https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img838/9043/zf0j.jpg
obiwan saber https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img543/371/8djv.jpg




FWIW , you can be approved with JUST the belt hanger; or JUST the bladed saber.
you only need one-or-the-other.

you don't actually have to wear the saber on your belt. (ever).

if your saber has a non-removable blade, then you can just carry that saber in your hand, if you want..

as long as you still have the covertec clip on your belt, (or a 'saber hook' to accept the D-ring, on OT sabers), then your belt is still complete. even if you never actually wear the saber on your belt.

it's basically 2 separate requirements : (1) you need a saber (with or without blade) ;
and (2) you need a belt-attachment (covertec OR saber-hook) --- but you don't actually need to wear the hilt on your belt -- if you carry a "bladed" saber in your hand, at all times, that's OK.

What would some other boot options be?

Regarding saber. Already have two. ... Both with detachable blades.

Built one in Savi's Workshop on Batuu (Galaxy's Edge at Disney) and the other is a combat ready ultrasaber.

Trying to figure out how to transport the blades from place to place safely and leaning towards an art storage / carrier tube.

I have the Funtasma boots as well as big calves.....I had an elastic gusset put in the back by a cobbler. Color matched the boots and no issues with approval.

I got my food capsules off Amazon. I just checked, they went up a few bucks. Now it's $21.90 for a set of 8 with free shipping. From thecostumebase.
