Hello everyone, my name is Óscar and i'm from Spain. I'd like to know if you can help me with the suit i'm preparing for Luke Skywalker from A New Hope and to tell me which parts are okey and which ones i should change, in order to pass the test. I have to confess that this suit i designed it to be a cosplay but i've waiting a long time to join the costuming's organization (Rebel Legion/ 501st Legion) and i'd like to adapt it to join the rebellion xD. Now i will mention a few notes that i belive there are wrong and submit some pics to show you the whole outifit:

Note 1: My kimono has some visible sewing marks in the sleeves, and i have benn told they musn't been shown, so i'll have to cover theme.

Note 2: The belt meassures 4 cm (1,575 inches) and the CRL says it has to be around 5 cm (1,969 inches). Pockets are useless.

Note 3: The boots are covered based on the Visual Guide from Star Wars Original Trilogy and the book of Clothing of Original Trilogy. Either way, i don't know if the heel has to be fixed and if the fabrics are okey.

I'll link the images to imgur. If there is a problem, please, contact me. And can you send me (by email) the patterns of the kimono?

Thank you so much and MTFBWY
Very Happy

I can see you have used a gi with the standard rows of stitching lines on the collar and set in sleeves. This can't actually be fixed, so you will need a new tunic to replace the old one.
Your boots will also need an upgrade with a smoother look and no raw edges. The wide sole is a distinctive feature, so make sure it looks its best. Smile
It also looks like your wraps stop short of your knee, so be mindful of that.

Good luck with it.
