I am trying to get my Obi Wan brought along and I could use imput from some experts. I think the inner and outer tabbard are good. This picture doesn't have any pouches or food cylinders but I am working on them. I feel my pants are a little off colour and I'd like to sew some with less apparent seams in them. The boots are my big hangup. I can't seem to find anything but these generic boots. I will post more as I get things moving along. Any imput would be very much appreciated. Also I am in the process of growing out my hair and beard to style properly.

Hello Michael,
Its a very good start with your costume.

Let me help you with some pictures:
http://www.kjo.rebellegion.com/?portfolio=obi-wan-kenobi-episode-iii-2

With one picture it is not so easy to say anything. (cant zoom in, think my browser has some problems)

Check the length of your tunic and your sleeves.
The colour of your inner tunic looks perfekt. Check the closure of your sleeves.
Yes the pants are a little bit dark.
The boots are sadly not correct. Is it possible to remove the part at the shin? Because Obi-Wan boots have only 1 strap at the ankle.

yours
Leroni

The boots you currently have are in the style of Anakin Skywalker and not Obi Wan they need to be more of a reddish brown colour,

as for the pants I recommend you look at chinos. they come in a variety of colours that are close to the colour of Obi's pants, and they have pockets.

biut other than that a fine start.

I can rework the boots and remove the buckles and fix the spats, even colour them so they are more red. However I'm not happy with the shape of the toe or the thickness of the soul. For that I'm hesetant to do any work on them at all. If ultimately they wont pass crl why bother, just start fresh. Though I'm having trouble finding a better boot. Also I have to make the belt darker I think and a little more red. In some pics they match the boots in some it looks just dark brown. Should I be trying to match the red?
