I saw that! Feel free to post here. I have a good possibility for the canvas and nylon that are affordable! I ordered samples for Jedi snow gear, so I'll have to dig them out of storage to be sure, but it looked like it would drape without being horribly heavy.

Canvas (in Navy): https://www.fabricwholesaledirect.com/products/waterproof-outdoor-canvas-fabric?variant=9913482435

Nylon/ripstop there's a couple options. One frayed more than the other but I don't remember which, so again, I'll update on that when I have a chance to dig out my samples.

I have two questions. I know it’s still early in creating Cal Kestis’s CRL. My 2 questions are about his lightsaber and poncho. During the game your able to customize Cal’s lightsaber. Is there going to be a specific lightsaber design for him or is it going to be open. Same question but for his poncho. In the game you can customize his poncho. Is there going to be different CRL’s for each poncho?

The way I see it is Jaro Tapal's saber and the scrapper poncho are the "canon" ones, as they are the ones that are included with the story. All the mods are obtained by happening upon crates and are not gifted as part of the story. Personally I think tapals hilt should be required for initial approval but ponchos optional, with the scraper one preferred.

That makes sense. So Cal’s initial lightsaber and poncho.

So if the canon costume is with the scraper poncho, does that mean the vest has to be done? For you can’t see the vest with the poncho on.

If something is there, but completely (or at least some times) obscured, it would be a good thing to be an optional item.

Ok that would make sense. You only see the vest when he is not wearing the poncho.

It's also worth noting that the belt and buckle styles change depending on what poncho he's wearing, meaning each set up, even though optional, would need its own set of crls.

Waiting for a breakdown of his canon costume.

I have a stupid question but does anyone have any idea if there will be a set color for Cals lightsaber blade, as we all know in the game you can make it any color on the bench but to be approved once the CRL is out will you need standard blue or will any of the color options be open with his lightsaber hilt?

Received one of the biggest pieces for this kit: the lightsaber. As I've decided to do the initial "canon" non custom version of Cal that you start with, I elected to buy the Weathered FO from the the Pach Store. This is probably the nicest saber I now I own. Unlike the ultrasaber version, it is not ridiculously oversized, and is in fact perfect for my small hands. It's well balanced, spins nicely, and is easy to install custom sound fonts and blade effects (meaning I can have an option for all crystal choices in the game). Highly recommend this saber.







In other news, Drazan has done an absolutely amazing job screen capping and breaking down Cal's whole base outfit. Really happy with my decision to commission the pants and shirt, as the sheer amount of top stitching will require a better machine and more patterning experience than I have. Due to things like dual top stitching on the inside and outside of the leg, pieces will have to be top-stitched before they are sewn together. Anyone looking to make this character should definitely join the Cal facebook group.

The saber looks really nice. Smile
