I have a new potential member who wishes to persue a Lando costume. Are there any tutorials or anything that could assist him in making the ESB Bespin costume? I realize that there are only two active members who actually have this costume approved and that is it, which makes it difficult to get help for him with this. Any assistance would be great. Thanks!

Not sure it helps, but you might try and track down the costume designer (Corey Sosner) from this fake trailer:

The costumes are dead on, so he might be able to point you in the right direction...

I do have a few reference pics for Lando in the Fringe section:

You may also want to contact Phyliss on this. I know she was working on a Lando at a local level.

She may have a bit more info and documentation.

I've been asked to help with Dagobah's soon-to-be Lando, specifically the cape. And I so do love his ESB cape! It's actually a very interesting problem and I can't wait to get started on a prototype, designing the pattern and calculating yardage. I actually started working on the initial patterning tonight. I will be making a couple of small scale prototypes to make sure my ratios are correct, but I am blogging about my journey through the design and construction processes. (if anyone is interested in the blog, it's linked in the Dagobah section. I'd rather not blog spam).

Essentially, the cape is too full to be a simple half circle cape. It is also too long. This will require the use of 4 roughly trapezoidal pieces to get the general shape. I am working right now based on the fabric width of the proposed lining (44 inches), so I may add three trianglular pieces in the seams to increase the bottom:top ratio. This could result in the cape being well over 200 inches along the bottom! That would make for one very sweet and very full cape!

If anyone has any other suggestions, I would love to hear them!

I am very new to costuming and eve newer to RL but if I had to do a face character I would probably do Land. How did this project fair?

Is there a pattern for the cape? It is a circle but seing it on screen shows no seams for it to be made in secions. I am doing this for one of our members and trying to figure out what to do with amount of fabric etc.
