So I have been obsessed with making this costume for a while I put Mace Windu in the back seat yet again.

First I will post all the references I am working from as 501st and Rebel CRL seem to miss some small things.

I am making this costume from references of the Obiwan and A’Sharad battle and some references after this comic. As there is more 360 shots of the costume from that comic then others. And the references from that fight scene are more similar and a lot more coherent then his other appearances in other comics. Also will decide if I will do his padawan costume. Smile
 

 

 

 
 

 

 
Pouches have only one button/rivet on the pouch and not 4.

Lenses are black in most cases but red in only one part of the comic.


 
Only instance of the lenses looking reddish other than the cover art that should not be included as no 360 image of that costume. As it has him wearing 2 sets of P-1903 pouches one across the chest and one below the belt.

 
His lenses they are black or red in this version of the costume and only His fathers Sharad truly  are red constantly in the comics.
 
also his fathers light saber should be added, As there are two versions of his fathers lightsaber also. One when his father has it and then gives it to him for the first time. And after such as him fighting Obiwan and then slowly turning to the dark side his fathers lightsaber had been modified. For example (just like Anakin’s ep3 hilt to ANH Luke’s hilt)
 
Obiwan 
Duel

 

 

 
After Obiwan duel

 


please let me know your thoughts as I would like to make my costume as close to the comic.

Working on boots. 
 
references

 

 
Closest boots I could find are these Funtatsma boots but they will need to be wrapped and weathered.

Noticed there is a seam down the back in the middle of his tunic.

Will add this later to my tunic.

Belt Options is insane as he has many different styles the closest and best looking buckle that is available is Qui Gon Ginns buckle that looks close to his toy version. Or I found another type but it’s close to his appearance fighting Obiwan.
Buckles I have found 
 

 

 
As I find a Anakin/Mace Windu style buckle far from correct
 
references 

 

 

 
Food capsules + possible duel saber clips on either side of belt

Finished belt and belt buckle, just waiting for new pouches. Decided to go with qui-gon’s and filed down the little tabs on the top and bottom.

Redid the pouches, so much happier with the outcome.




Finished preparing one boot just need to glue everything in place and weather. Need to paint the soles black. Tried to count each wrap from comic and wrap in similar way.

After weathering I think I would have got it as close as possible to the references.





Hot glued all strips on and colored sole black
 




Drying the boots happy with end product.

A lot more accurate then doing the Tusken Rain boots wrapped

So was approved but not happy with the tunic so will possibly remake it. It’s funny judges both 501st and Rebel Legion say more weathering in the tunic but in no references there is weathering on his tunic.
I did notice his tunic is very clean and actually has 3 to 4 pleats at the waist that makes the bottom half of the tunic wavy.

Even I am approved I wanted to get the tunic closer to the comic.
My new tunic. Added things different to the Costume guide is pleats to the front and back skirt flaps and a back seam.



References to show these from the comic.
