A couple of weeks ago I put together my General Dodonna costume. It was a quick project and I'm happy to report it was approved.

I sourced most of the material (not counting the belt buckle) either from things I already had or from the thrift store in the form of cotton curtains.

The shirt I made from a simple pattern in a rather thick cotton twill. I winged it for the bib front.

For the jacket I used a safari jacket pattern and modified it a bit at the collar and used a single piece instead of two for the back, as well as a change for the dark part that goes over the shoulder which I made one piece. I made the rank badge from Sintra sheet PVC and some red acrylic for the pips.

Overall the look is pretty good, eventually I'll make the duster as well.

Thanks for posting some build info! Do you have any process pictures you would be willing to share for how you made your rank badge? That's something I bet a lot of people would find really helpful. Smile

I'll see what I can do. I didn't take detailed process pics but will make something. I can't seem to get my google photos to show in my posts, sorry you have to click through.

They're womens' size US13, I wear a mens' US11, from Payless online (they may be out of business). They were intended for women with larger calves than me so I had to take them in at the back. Also I removed the buckle/straps (3 per boot) to make them approvable. Previously I used them for my Old Ben Kenobi because they didn't show.
