Character/Costume Description

My costume is Ben Kenobi from
Star Wars IV: A New Hope. aka 0 BBY Kenobi.
I used Ben Nye snow white hair
color to dye my hair and beard. My
lightsaber is a Hasbro signature
series Obi Wan Kenobi Force FX
lightsaber with removable hilt, it was
bought for this costume. The outer
robe is wool, and is unhemmed
intentionally, so the edges will fray
with use and resemble Ben's robe in
the movie.
The inner robe, obi & sash are linen.
The belt and bag are leather , the
boots are also leather and not
rubber soled. Pretty well hidden by
the robes anyway ;p
I am wearing a Land's End dark
brown, long sleeved mock
turtleneck under the robes.
I'd like to thank KWILLS of Blue
Ridge Base for doing all the cutting
& sewing and generally making this
costume come together for me to
wear to Dragoncon this year : )
