Evening folks,

As the title says, I've finally decided to do this costume.

I liked this version of Old Luke the most when the movie came out, it kind of reminded me of Old Ben & thought they had a similar journey, but after all the negativity & hate that was going around after the release; I thought I'd put it on the back burner for a while.

So, after trooping with the Rebel Legion Ireland/501st Ireland Garrison last weekend for a May the 4th festival in Porgmagee, Co. Kerry & seeing Skellig Micheal off the coastline, I've decided to 'trust in my feelings' & go for it.

I've already been looking at build threads & the proposed crl on here, so I have a fair idea of what's involved. I already have the leather needed to make the belt & will be getting the Puttees next week. Next is researching & deciding what fabric to use for the trousers, to source boots, leather & fabrics. And I plan to make the stick/cane myself.

Tips, comments & criticism all welcome.

Love the costume. Loathe the movie.

I do look forward to seeing your build. This is a really great looking outfit for Luke and I love the style.

Hi mate,
There are parts I really don't like, but I do love the whole Luke story. In my eyes, that's what makes our fandom interesting. I mean things would be boring, if we all liked the same things in all of the movies & in life.

I might pm you over the next few days.

Small update on this..

After around a 6 month break due to a house move, I've finally got back to this over the last 10 days.. My trousers ( A Dark Green Waxed Canvas) & WWI leg puttees arrived this week, I have a family member who is going to make me the hooded tunic & I'll be making the belt this weekend all going to plan.

I'm still waiting on Gio from Crowprops getting back to me about him making the boots. My goal is to have this all together and hopefully cleared for The May the 4th weekend.
