I'm 6'0, 240 lbs, and I'm building a jawa. I am starting this project having never used a sewing machine. 

I zigzagg stitched around the edges of 10 yards of Monk's cloth in preparation for dying, and dyed the fabric. 



I have acquired a Swedish bandolier, that I just need to add an extension to-- it's already wonderfully weathered

I've purchased rain boots, and materials for glowy eyes -- going with the michaels lights solution.    My next big step is to lay out the pattern on the fabric, make my cuts and sew the robe.  

I also need to figure out how to do a mask that lets me wear glasses-- looking at the fencing mask style builds atm.  

Look forward to joining your ranks!

Hey there! Looking good so far Very Happy

In order to be able to wear my glasses with my mask, I've modified a paintball mask - it has ventilation, and the lens sits far enough away that I can wear my glasses.

Now - from my experience of wearing it - I have modified it more, and pulled the lens out (apparently it was supposed to be easily removable... I had to take a dremel tool to it to get it to release), and replaced it with a wire mesh that will now be covered. The lens was fogging horrifically, even with fans. I'll take photos and write it up once I get ready to work on it.

Can't wait to see your progress on this!
