    Dec 12, 2007, 10:59 PM - I think my jedi is almost ready for application... #1

    Well, here’s my personal jedi costume.
    My mom helped me put the obi on, but she did it wrong, I think. It’s hard to get it right by myself, but I’m sure that it’ll be easier with the Costume Support at MSI this Saturday.
    Everything is my own except the belt and robe, which I borrowed from local 501st members. Mine will be done by march..…eventually.

    My plan is to jump aboard the Rebel Legion when I turn 18. The onyl thing holding me back is the belt, which a friend of mine offered to help me with.

    I'm shooting for a lightside jedi that has a hint of darkness dwelling within.

    Anywho, enjoy and comment:

    nice job! jedi was my first foray into this costuming thing

    custom colors but still looks jedi-like.

    i think the boot could use... something... straps, or spats, or... i dunno... most of the jedi have some minor details on there. maybe some brown vinyl, if you could match the base boots?

    I don't think that the rubber boots will really fly with the Rebel Legion. I would plan to replace those in the future with something a little more accurate.

    The rest of the costume looks pretty good though.

    I concur with 7602 and GCN on the boots. There is a spat on most Jedi boots. The input at MSI will get those on track for ya. Here is a pic of a custom pair I am waiting on as we speak. The white is by design choice, and you can get a good look of the various details on the whole in this image:

    Looks like a great start. I concur with the others here. You're definitely going to need to upgrade those boots though and you may want an alternative to the tee shirt underneath.
    If you haven't done so already you might check with members of your local base and get some advise from there as well. Good work.

    It was actually a local memebr that loaned me the pattern and even sewed it.

    The boots will be replaced as soon as I can afford it. These rubber wading boots are a pain to kneel in for pics.

    TK7602, how did you find leather boots at Wal*mart?! All I've seen are the Fadded Glory biker boots.

    I'm also talking to another member about getting a belt minus pouches.

    Yeah, the boots are for sure not gonna fly, um...I have seen various boots different places. I know that I bought a set of boots on ebay that I use for Han and my jedi that ran me about $50 I think.

    The obi has to be wider yes. And the Tshirt, RL recommends either a mock turtleneck or another mock tunic...

    Ah, the second picture, the power of luxeon!!!

    And this one is just for fun...

    yup, just regular boots. they only come up about 1/2 as high as they need to, so modifications are required to get them where they need to be.

    this is sort of like how they started out.

    Not to be a buss kill...

    You are also probably not going to be able to have black as a color. Most of the standards for costumes in the RL have been reworked in the last year to be more strict and formal, IE closer to the strictness of the 501st.

    Jedi must have neutral earth tone colors, I think that may be more of an issue than your boots. I can check with the group in charge of Jedi (I myself am CO of Florida, and know more about Pilot and Commando costumes) But generally, black is usually denied as a formal costume. In the past, we allowed non-canon informal costumes as a first costume... but now you must have a canon formal costume for your first, then you may have as many informal customs under your name as you wish...

    Its a great start though!

    Actually, the vlack is allowed in a a NJO jedi.

    This costume saw it's first troop today. Replaced the rubber boots with my bat-boots. Worked great
    I ditched the tee, as it showed too much.
    Got called "Anakin" alot, but that's to be expected.

    A friend of mine has a Qui-Gonn-esque jedi, which is pretty cool.
    Basically, I was his padawan for the evening.
    Still waiting on the pics from everyone.

    A local member has a belt for me, so I'm going to get that.
    My own robe will be cut somtime later in the week........I hope.

    Oh, I want to gice a shoutout to TheCloneEmperor and say that it was nice to meet you. Hope to do it again sometime.

    I remember when I wore my jedi suit for the first time. It was with my brother and me. He had a jedi costume also. It was at the Star Wars Episode 3 premiere at a movie theater.

    We waited 12 hours in line for the movie. About 5 hours in line we went home to change into are costumes. Long story short it was REALLY FUN!!!

    Then when C4 came I modified the costume to look like Darth Maul. Take a look...
