Finally, my first step! Now I can start a build thread!
The cape material (according to 501st Centurion criteria) is here!! Now to figure out which chunk I need to cut out... Anyone want the rest when I'm done?
Also, this thread is crazy helpful, and shows a good picture of a cape chunk... Question, though, are the holes supposed to be there on a ROTJ cape? I'm really hoping so, because it looks like a .45acp JHP and two 9mm JHP's would make the perfect raggedy holes. I'm pretty sure ILM/LucasFilm/etc. didn't use handguns to make those holes, but why not have a bit of fun with the build? Also, I'm going for Centurion level (cuz go big or go home, right?), so things have to be 200% on this build, etc... Which brings me to a funny rule of mine:
If you find something isn't quite right on my build, PLEASE say something, and DON'T be afraid to hurt my feelings, because I have none!! I traded them in to my recruiter when I signed for Infantry many many moons ago...
I found a neck seal in the cargo hold that should fit (last I measured quite a few years ago, my neck was about perfect for the measurement listed by the seller). If push comes to shove, I can always have my mom or sister hem it.... Since I've not touched a sewing machine in almost 20 years, I'm pretty sure I can't make a Centurion-level anything, so I'll have to rely on the skills of others on that front...
So, does anyone know the specific hunk of tent half I need to cut out of this big ol' thing, and if it should be double-layered or a single panel?
