Hi,
Iím a relatively new member from Australia and am looking to put together a generic Jedi for my first costume.

I have started sourcing and received a few items: saber, belt, boots, robe. (pictures below)

I was originally looking at dark brown pants with the lighter cream/whiteish tunic/tabards/obi similar to early Obi-Wan but have since decided about going all black pants/tunic/obi/tabards. My plan is to wear this with the brown belt, boots and robe (as I already have these items).


Fallen Azure saber with Guardian blue blade from Ultrasabers




Belt with covertec clip, pouches and capsules




Iím not using the boot covers that are in the first shot.

Iím after others thoughts on the robe. Hood size, sleeve size etc. (ignore the rest of the costume, itís NOT one Iím applying with)






I'm hoping to be able to get everything together and approved by May as there is an event locally that I would love to attend as part of the Legion (I live in a regional town).

Iím in the process of getting my black tunic/obi/tabards together and ready for submission.

Any help or ideas are always welcome. Iíve had a bit of help from members from Tython Base as Iíve posted my WIP there.

Thanks

would like to see how long is your outer tunic is, most of us started out with a tunic that is too short.

hope your new talbard will work out soon as well

p.s. does the Fallen Order hilt has convetec?

Hi ZlaAul,

I donít have my outer tunic, obi or tabards yet. Once they are finished and I have them Iíll post a pic before application.

The Fallen Saber from Ultrasabers comes with a covertec wheel attached


Cheers

Some Caveats:

I don't think brown belt/boots over black cloth is going to look good.

Your cloak is not approvable; the material isn't up to screen quality and the hood is too small. Not an issue really as you have Inner Tunic, Belt Pouches, and food capsules taken care of. Inner Tunic though looks like thin synthetic, which isn't desirable.

Your Outer Tunic sleeves need to reach your first knuckle, not visible in these photos.

Beware of that belt; the outer belt will likely get droopy on you which looks terrible. (It looks like you have a different one on in some of the photos, but they're both Cosplay-grade and so you'll need to keep an eye on them.)

Hi Grimwalker

The costume Iím wearing in one of the photos is NOT the one Iím putting together for Legion approval.

I thought the robe wouldnít pass anyway but just thought Iíd put it out there to see others thoughts just in case.

Thanks

So Iíve been playing around with trying to get the boot covers to stay put.

Ive just today worked with using some sticky backed velcro and so far so good.

Hoping theyíll stay put.

I would use caution in using too much Black in your costume. While some black is ok, Anikin in Episode III. Too much might look a little dark side and might be an issue for the judges.

My first approved costume (late last year) is all black; tunic (inner and outer), pants, boots, belt, pouches, robe, everything black. And I had no trouble at all getting it passed, so you shouldn't either if that's the way you want to go.

Just wondering if anyone has some ideas/techniques for me to 'weather' my boots. I would like to try and lose that shiny look if possible.

Thankyou

I have had a go at weathering my boots. Reasonably happy with the result. Couldíve been better. Iíll see what else i can do to make it look a bit better but they at least look better than the original vinyl look.

Thoughts?
