Not hard. Similar to sewing except you don't have to hem the edges. Punching holes, riveting and setting studs are easily figured out techniques, or I could show you. Getting tools from Birdsall would set you back a bit, as is getting leather.

But I just was looking for old belts in op-shops and leather belts were costing $8 each. I need two, for $16. But from Birdsall I can buy one wide leather belt for $15 and cut the other strap from it, and get exactly what I want. So... I'll have to make a trip to Botany soon.

You should come with me! Wink

I'd definitely be downfor some saber action when I get a saber and a costume!

Question though, who is the senior Bujinkan instructor you mentioned?

Cool. Sent a join request.

And I thought it'd be Andrew! Trained under him for a few days once before with Bokken. Talented guy, and very nice.

And approved!

Andre is a great guy, he has a strong interest in Saber Arena and has set aside one Sunday a month specifically for us to do a Saber fighting/choreo course that will lead to film industry certification. I have also been going to Bujinkan classes with him weekly. Saber Arena have now done several group orders at Ultra Sabers for our members and it is likely that another will be done soon, this is probably the cheapest option around to get started with a solid duelling Saber. We have also been helping our members get their costumes underway, and several of our members are now either RL approved or close to submitting their application.

How hard is leather work? Just out of curiosity. And those pouches are awesome!


I love it because unlike fabric, you don't need to hem it Smile lol How hard it is really depends on what you want to do, but you can do some really great looking pieces without too much trouble.

I'd definitely be in for the group order providing my funds are alright at the time (saving for an Ascend from Genesis Custom Sabers at the moment)

Also the costume I'd be looking at would be a Corellian Jedi (something you are familiar with I can see) and I'd probably be going with this as a base (or just going for Corran Horn)

I went and bought leather and some strong strength sewing thread that they said I needed. I am still currently working on my pants atm though. Diamonds cut out just need to keep the shape with them.

Hi GreyJediDroma,

That looks great, I would post the link in the Jedi section of forums to doublecheck, though. Have you looked at the costume standards for Corran Horn and generic Jedi? I always suggest that people go for a generic Jedi before a face Jedi, as the process is a bit easier and a good learning process. I think that if you were using this as a base for a generic Jedi, you would have to replace the vest with more traditional tabards, which is easily enough done. However, as you said, this may be a good start to go straight for the face character. Swiv has a good contact on food capsules, and may have some left over from the last group order we did if you were after some. Have you plans for the leatherwork?

Speaking of leatherwork, Ahsoka, don't forget that I have tools and can help when you want to put buckles on etc. Let me know what you're planning, lol!

Fyr

An that has to be the fastest approval I've seen so far! A big welcome to the newest member of Saber Arena to make an approved costume!
