I am interested in making Ani with full outter Robes...

In EP 2 there is a scene (wedding) where he has his exposed Robotic hand.

Question is...

1. could someone make this costume and have it approved?


2. If done phenomenally could someone do it on a EP3 and not have to buy the glove? (I like ep3 robes better. ...) id love to avoid buying a glove just fot submission photos to use with my robotic hand. .. Its not even arguable why he wears the glove. :p

Thanks so much for any advice

I can't remember if we have the Anakin Ep II mechanical hand costume approved or not, but we do have the animated Anakin (micro series) with the mechanical hand approved. David did a good job in creating the micro scries version of the hand. I do think the film version of the mechanical hand would be a little tougher to pull off, but it'd be great if you can figure out how to make it look right.

Can this costume from Ep. II be approved? Of course, it can be RL approved!

As for making an Anakin from Ep. III without the glove but showing a mechanical hand? No, we can't mix and match costume components between films. While I'm sure Anakin took his leather glove off to take a shower...since we don't see him in the film without the glove...only the "glove on" version would be permitted.

Besides, as soon as that were to be approved (and it won't be, I'm just saying)...someone is going to want to do Luke Bespin pants with the Yavin IV ceremonial jacket...or some other combination that would give me serious heartburn.

But...you can do it for a con...or Celebration VII Wink

Glad you saw where I was going with that question.... Yes I am bad.. sorry *hides from wrath* Wink

Thank you so much for your super detailed answer Roger, I thought I should just mail you directly.. but I really didnt want to bug you. I know your a busy guy.

That solves the issue. Ill just sew an EP2 then! ^.-
..which I just did a month ago -.- Well.. at least I am familiar with it!

I just happen to adore the Outter Robe from 3 is all. Is it sad that I want it just for the robe? Yes.. x,x

Thank you so much sir for the answer! =D

The EP2 costume is not as often made the EP3 it seems in people making the costumes. I dug through our roster photos of Anakins going back to 2010 and couldn't find a single person with a Robo Arm.

Robotic Arm is awesome. Razz






Id LOVE to get it looking darn near identical (even if i had to make a new one) and get it approved. Would be super fun to troop in for the High Profile goodness.

Oh, without a doubt! I love the roboarm!

Alas I did NOT make it (I have only altered the costume it came with). Its a piece from my BD vader which Li(Anakin) Reznick made (all of it) She told me she used to used this glove with her Anakin costume. She graciously gave me her Force Unleashed BD Vader after finding out that I wanted to build one. Due to her Anakin Arm being involved in the use of that costume she gave me the arm to her Anakin Costume.
My Anakin buddy from the 501 likes to wear it around (since outside me wearing Vader, the arm gets no use) ...and wow that thing is love to the kiddos on an Anakin. They just stare at it for days! lol o,o

Hey! You know I originally stated that I wanted to wear a EP3 because of the outter robes.

I am watching the EP2 wedding scene right now and in it I believe he is wearing a Full robe (not the one without the sleves) can someone confirm either way? They do a full pan up his arm...

So here is a video of the wedding scene. It just looks so large, much larger than his tunic.
Is this an robe with sleeves? or am I crazy?
Why are the sleeves so big if not?
I am also not seeing a difference in material between the shoulder color and the hood and the material on his chest. It all appears to be of the same texture and color.


This is taken with my cel phone camera. But this is the scene in question

it's very difficult to tell. the rest of the garment looks like his AOTC cape.
here are the screenshots of the scene.
http://starwarsscreencaps.com/star-wars-episode-ii-attack-of-the-clones-2002/89/


I've read that they actually filmed this scene with his normal hand, because this scene was actually filmed before GL decided to take anakin's arm off. so they went back later and morphed the mechanical arm into the shot..

--> IF this is true, then I would say, they ended up (inadvertently?) depicting a robe sleeve where none existed on the costume, because this was the best way to make the shot appear "seamless".(pun intended). Wink

so it could be argued either way. I don't think anakin actually wore a sleeved robe in the film.. but these screenshots definitely depict a robe sleeve.

*shrug*

While you just gave an amazing explanation, I 100% agree with you. If it's true than this is the only scene and matching costume which could depict a robe. It would almost need a second CRL due to the scene having a robe and thus a robo hand. The two would be the only way together they could be worn together as a EP2

Id love to hear if anyone else sees what we do.

Even his back arm looks to have a HUGE sleeve.


CG was no where near the level it is today I think your right it was just easier to do that seamlessly


...its his wedding robe? *cough*

That's a cool mechanical arm. It looks like his normal Ep2 cloak with outer tunic here.

You are right I see it! The slit for the opening shows between his legs really well!
