Looks like I sent the ‘still be be approved’ email too fast. I just got another present in my inbox... The young padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi has been approved as well!



I guess now I need to work on some rotating sig bars or something...

I'm thinking of starting a modular Shadows of the Empire/Return of the Jedi Luke costume.

The SOTE variation is just the Death Star suit with a vest and the ESB belt/holster.

I won't start anything until I find a nice pair of affordable boots, though. The boots and lightsaber (and blaster, I suppose) will be the most expensive part.

Preach it, brother! obi 2 You're right on the money there. I used that same philosophy... I took the Episode III boots I spent a fortune on and turned them into Episode I boots with some adaptation and a visit to Tandy leather. Pairing costumes from one movie or era to another is the way to go and get you the most bang for your buck.

I'm also considering a classic A New Hope Luke costume. From what I've read about what the original costume was made from, it doesn't sound too expensive, and I already have the lightsaber.

Someone on the Excelsior boards was just talking about the canvas belt material for that one. I guess it's the same material that Stormtroopers and Dengar use. You could email 501st@blums.net or pop on the Excelsior forums if you wanted more info. Might be cheaper to buy together?

I am a couple snaps and a bit more than one macrame-ed belt away from finishing my Padme Tatooine peasant. Once the Easter sewing is over I will be finishing it up in hopefully a day or two. Hoping to have it submitted in time to wear to Another Galaxy.

I am finishing Admiral Ackbar! All I need is some cloth adjustments!

I have finished AT AT Driver, my Darth Maul (which was rejected due to Rubies gloves?) will work that issue, and I have finished adjustments on my Rebel Trooper.
