Hi guys, just thought I'd share my almost finished Obi-Wan from A New Hope. I just need to make some adjustments like making the hood a little shorter.

I'm hoping it is clearable as I'd really love to troop in the UK with this.

Let me know your thoughts! I also do ROTS Obi-Wan.

This looks good Shodanmark Smile

It looks a pretty clean application but you are on the money with the hood. Shorten it up a little and I'd struggle to find something that would prevent approval Wink

Thanks! Yep I'm going to shorten the hood for sure and do some weathering.

Very nice Ben Kenobi!

What fabric did you use for your outer hooded robe?

WOW! Great job! Costume looks excellent clean, almost sad to see it weathered, though I am certain that will look great as well.

Now let's see the ROTS Obi-Wan! Wink

It's wool which was found in a fabric shop close to me. It's very close if not the same stuff used on the original I reckon.

Here you go. I need to make some adjustments to this one too before submitting.

Looks great! You have the look down, I think. You pull off young and old Ben quite well. Very cool. Thumbs up

Not bad at all. Smile I'd also advise you to make sure your stole/tabard have an equal amount of fabric on each side. Wink

It happens. Always good to check an extra time before you start taking pictures or even better; have someone else check for you.

The original outer robe in the movie is made of WWII army blankets. Definitely wool but thick.
