Hello my jedi bretheren,

Now with the excitement of CVI coming back to O-Lando I want to do poncho Luke. I'm very knowledgeable on OR jedi but I'm not an expert on ROTJ luke. After examining some photos I have some questions.

1. Luke's soft helmet has a hat brim. How could I replicate this?

2. Are there any painting tips on Lukes poncho which is more brown than the other ponchos?

3. Luke's belt seems to go through the front of the poncho. Any info on this?

Your only 2 options are to attach it to either the soft helmet (like mine) or to the hard 'halo' helmet (like others). Any expert Endor costumer can help you in this matter

Seek the advice of Donna Keeley from California's Sunrider Base- she has seen more ponchos than any other...

Seek the advice of Matt Tolosa from Northern California- He's done an Endor Luke...

His belt is a military web style belt, not his leather one also. Wink

The slits for the belt ARE through the front, and should land just inside your waistline. Since I double-layered my poncho, I just cut a 2.25" slit (the belt was 2" wide) and did a zigzag stitch around it to keep it from fraying, like a giant buttonhole. Here's what I've done for Luke's colors:



And the Luke poncho next to the Leia poncho:



Granted, I added a lot more color after this so there was less light spots. I used Design Master spray paint that you can get at Michael's crafts, and I believe I used October Brown, Moss Green, and Ivory. I recommend getting a spray can adapter that gives you a trigger, because if your finger gets in the way of the button, it can cause splatters.

I printed out a few front and back pictures of Luke and started spraying in the brown parts in a similar design. You will want to use short, sweeping bursts about 8-10 inches away from the fabric. I mist the fabric with water first. Next, I used the green. Don't be afraid to over-lap. I filled in the leftover bits with ivory so there was no stark white fabric. I ended up filling in more brown and green since you don't want much ivory at all. Then I lightly misted the whole thing in brown by spraying from a further distance. Unfort. Design Masters doesn't make any more shades of brown and the reason I use this paint is it's meant for fabric, like silk flowers. You can wash it to soften it after, but the color will fade. I usually spray and wash it a couple times. You can even rip a few holes in it before washing to give it a weathered look. I recommed spraying both sides. Don't over-saturate or it will soak through, but rather spray in layers and let dry.

Hope that helps Smile

Thanks for the replies and information.

I'll have to start looking for fabric and patterns.

I forgot, I have some shots of my poncho (front, side, back) that shows how it hangs, both with arms up and down, if that might help.
