you're off to a good start.


re: belt and leather pouch
I recommend this belt. I own one. I am very happy with it.
(I recommend this to everyone, even just for generic jedi).
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Wars-Prop-Obi-wan-Jedi-Belt-/132396777743
my own belt looks like this.

https://imageshack.com/a/img913/4574/nmP8vj.jpg
https://imageshack.com/a/img540/8418/xA7QSH.jpg
the same vendor also makes the leather pouch you need.
belt + pouch is here:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Wars-Prop-Obi-wan-Jedi-Belt-Leather-Pouch/132082683712



re: tall pouch
http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=74250
woodman makes the ribbed pouches in all 3 sizes.
(he also makes the grapple pouch, but you've already got that covered)



re: boots
I'm not sure if shoe polish will work on polyurethane.
you might try flexible acrylic latex paint from a craft store instead; or 'vinyl paint'.
see this thread for paint suggestions

re: lightsaber
if you're just looking for a cheap belt-hanger lightsaber then you might find a 3D-printed saber hilt something like this:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Replica-Obi-Wan-Kenobi-Lightsaber-Star-Wars-ANH-3D-Printed-ABS-Cosplay-Ben/302056340981
(note: this is ANH but if you contact the seller he might be able to make you a ROTS one instead -- and/or -- you might be able to convert this into a ROTS saber with a few modifications)?
(also he's not the only one making 3D printed lightsabers. LOL)

the Legion also accepts the hasbro black series (and/or Master Replicas) "Force-FX" lightsabers.
https://www.ebay.com/p/Star-Wars-The-Black-Series-Obi-wan-Kenobi-Force-FX-Lightsaber/20012459076
the obi-wan hilt is not entirely accurate, but it is accepted.

Added your suggestions for Belt and Pouch, and I already had contacted Woodman about the tall pouch. I haven't heard back; I hope he's still making them.

Do you know of any good references for identifying the RotS hilt? I've been searching the RPF, but no luck yet. I'd prefer to get a metal hilt with lights.

Is the Master Replicas series good to use as a guide? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Obi-Wan-Lightsaber-Master-Replicas-Episode-3-Revenge-of-the-Sith-ROTS-with-Box/122886849967?hash=item1c9ca085af:g:UXIAAOSwzRlaRsF5

the ROS hilt has a 'circuit board' instead of the bubble strip (on the activation box);
and it has a covertec wheel on the side of the saber*, instead of the D-ring on the pommel (for hanging it off the belt).
otherwise they are pretty much the same.

the ROTS saber looks like this:
http://imagizer.imageshack.us/a/img543/371/8djv.jpg
(these are my own sabers: the one on the left is a 1:1replica (from "Master Replicas"); the one on the right is a "force-FX" model. note the distorted shape of the hilt -- this is not an optical illusion or a trick of the aspect ratio -- this is what I mean when I say the force-fx is not entirely 'accurate'. the size and shape are inflated, to accommodate the electronics inside) Confused


* you'll need one of these on your belt:
http://www.thecustomsabershop.com/Covertec-Clip-P117.aspx
the saber has a 'wheel' on the side, which slides into the covertec-clip.
http://www.thecustomsabershop.com/Black-machined-button-for-Covertec-clip-P116.aspx

(meanwhile: the ANH saber just hangs by it's own D-ring, from a metal 'hook' on the belt like Luke's)

yes. that saber is 100% accurate

a few years ago, "eFX" made a resin cast version at the $99 pricepoint.
I have no idea what collectors are asking for them now. but that one is also accurate

I forgot to list it above, but I do already own a covertiec clip.

As for boots, zippers can be on the inside, right (preferably hidden)?

I would like to find a boot that's a little closer, to begin with, If you have any suggestions.

for boots, yes the zipper on the inseam of the leg is OK.
(the boots on my obi-wan mannequin, for example -- these zippers are fine).
https://imageshack.com/a/img913/4574/nmP8vj.jpg
https://imageshack.com/a/img540/8418/xA7QSH.jpg

^^ the boots on that mannequin are funtasma "captain 100" boots.
I made the spats myself , from upholstery vinyl.

before:
https://imageshack.com/a/img24/5589/p8d1.jpg
after:
https://imageshack.com/a/img825/892/s5nu.jpg
https://imageshack.com/a/img69/4752/9fib.jpg
pattern(not to scale):
https://imageshack.com/a/img692/5626/dco0.png

this was a very easy modification. I didn't change the color of the funtasma boots at all.
the material was $32/yd.. I bought 1/2 yd.. and it was enough to dress 2 pairs of boots
(1 obi-wan and 1 anakin)
https://imageshack.com/a/img20/6516/xik0.jpg
^^ ((so basically: this was an $8 modification, to a $40 boot)).




note: these mannequin pics of mine are quite old -- I have actually replaced these boots, with actual replica boots from "Museum Replicas" now.

I can confirm the color is very close; and the Replica boots are about 2 inches taller.

This is the boot you're referencing?:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001AH60BU/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

Also, this seems to be the best tutorial for the tunic, any other suggestions?

I would like to buy this belt and pouch, but it says it will take over two months for it to arrive. Any idea for a belt/pouch of similar quality but a bit closer to the U.S.?

Dave @ saberbelt sells a DIY kit with everything you need, c/w correct buckle for obi-wan.
the leather is all pre-cut to the correct width. you just need to dye the leather and assemble the belt.

I imagine you bought the tall woodman pouch 'raw' so you could color-match with the museum replicas pouch. that's a good idea.
good luck with your build.

Love how you did this. I'm going to attempt myself as the boots (as well as the lack of 2 pleats in my undershirt) were the two issues with my Obi-Wan Ep. 3. how did you secure the pieces to your boot? I assume you sewed the three flaps together and then glued them down? And just to be clear, there's no buckle on the horizontal ankle strap, right?
