One of the reasons I joined this site was to help my Turkish friends who want to make a Zam costume. Some of them don't speak English well or at all. The other reason was to research a costume project of my own: Jal Shey Armour in Imperial Knight colours. This armour is from Knights of the Old Republic 2 The Sith Lords. Jal Shey armour is what Zam wears. I found a mod for the game that gives you Imperial Knight colours. I like it, so when I have time I want to make it:
I think the armour in this pic is actually Zeison Sha. Similar to Jal Shey but with a cloth skirt instead of leather pieces. If and when I get started on this I'll keep you all informed.
Great site btw. Very informative.
Just one question about the skirt - do the top squares overlap the bottom ones like tiles on a roof, or do the bottom squares overlap the top ones? The former sounds better to me.
