I'm toying with the idea of doing the ANH Farmstead Luke costume, but I'm in the very early stages of developing my research.

First things first, would this belt and pouches be approvable? Leatherwork is the bane of my life, so I'm trying to avoid having to do it myself.

That belt is not screen accurate. I'm not sure if it would be approveable, you'd have to check with the judges.

Thank-you so much for the quick reply!!

Do you reckon this would be be approvable?

Far better quality but still innaccurate. I'm not a judge though so I'm not sure if it would pass muster.

I'd say the belt buckle looks too square where it should be more rectangular, but it's better looking than the first.

Hi Psab Keel,

I understand that you probably know more about the Luke Skywalker Lars Homestead/Tatooine costume than anyone bar John Mollo.

Do you have any photo reference for the arrangement of the belt & pouches?
Struggling to find reference for what is screen-accurate.

Thanks in advance.


As a side note, worth reminding everyone that John Mollo, who must be a spiritual godfather to this organisation, past away one year ago today.

I am humbled by your compliments! Thank you so much.

Gus Lopez has one of the screen used Luke ANH belts in his collection which can be seen here:

This is the best reference photo of this particular Luke belt rig.

John Mollo's work was an inspiration! I'm so glad to see that over the years the Luke Farmboy costume is finally getting the kind of love from the fans that it truly deserves. It's one that is often overlooked and is more complex than the surface belies. A truly timeless and iconic outfit!
