Although Linda's glove is beautiful work, the buckles aren't accurate. The food capsules you can get on Amazon. The Covertec clip I'd get from The Custom Saber Shop. The belt boxes you'll either need to find Museum Replicas ones or have Robert Howton make a a set for you as I don't know anyone else who makes them accurately. That belt looks alright, but if you can get Robert Howton to make you a belt it's beautiful work. The colors of the soft parts in the link you posted are a bit too light and should be darkened, and if possible I would strongly encourage real leather tabards. You still need boots as well, with JDOS being the best option.

For the robe I'm waiting to see if someone from the Anakin Skywalker costume group on Facebook can make one for me as most of the others I've seen have been the wrong material or not the correct size.

Although they ended up taking care of it I can't say my experience with Custom Props is as good. I have their lambskin glove, and although accurate, it's not sewn or stitched very well. Also, the armbands were not sewn into the proper position either and I had to fix it. They ended up refunding my money for the glove, but it took a bit to get it back.

I'm sorry to hear that. I can see how that would be a frustrating experience for you. I guess the silver lining is, they tried to make things right in the end, even going so far as to refund your money. (a lot of vendors don't stand behind their products, and/or, they don't understand 'customer service'). it's good to hear that they stand behind their products.

I've ordered three times and I had a good experience every time. (anakin belt, obi-wan belt, and 'custom-made' anakin shin spats, made to my measurements). I was pleased with the quality and I would order from them again.

It seems they can be hit or miss. Some people like you have excellent luck, and some people don't. I think they generally do make good projects, sometimes something slips through the cracks. They did at least refund me so I don't have I'll will towards them, but just wanted to mention a possible issue.
