My wife and I have been cosplaying for a few years now, and I have decided it is finally time to post a WIP for the Legion. After reading Kenobi by John Jackson Miller a few years ago, I really wanted an Obi-Wan costume because I figured it is a costume I can age into Smile

We have been researching the costume for a few years now, and we are also fortunate enough to have the Insight Edition of Dressing A Galaxy and Simplicity Pattern 4450. This means we have a plethora of reference photos, actual swatches from the ROTS costume, and a great pattern to get started.

My wife is a wonderful costumer who made all of my cloth components, but I wanted to list where a few of my components are available for purchase:
Obi-Wan Robes: MelTyd Cosplay on Etsy (my wife)
Obi-Wan Replica Leather Belt: MP Filmcraft. I purchased my ANH Solo gun belt from here as well, and I have always loved his products.
Obi-Wan Lightsaber: Redeemer Saber from Saber Forge. I know forums are filled with people who have had problems with Saber Forge, but I have ordered 4 lightsabers over the years without any problems. I have always been very impressed with their sabers.
Obi-Wan Boots: Custom Leather from NyxaShoes on Etsy. I just received these boots this month, and I love them. Real leather, leather soles, and they lace up the front with Velcro spats. She also makes these fully customizable with measurements and options.

We know we need to remake the inner tunic (terrible fabric choice), buy the belt pouches, and then I think we might be good.

Here are a few pics for Halloween this year: (I apologize in advance if I did not add these pictures correctly.)
