Personally (and I'll probably get a lot of hate for saying this Wink ) I think Eva Vancek's inner tunics are -really- overpriced, and you can get a really nice inner tunic for much less Wink


No not at all Wink you probably could find one cheaper provided you find the screen accurate material.
I have had afew inner tunics for my Anakin costume, but Eva's design is a really good fit especially around the neckline

Looks great and almost ready?

I have to ask, no lycra sleeve?

of course the lycra sleeve is not required on either tunic - but it will greatly aid you in getting the glove to fit nicely on your arm. Plus, your sleeve will look so much better, when you don't have to tug all the fabric into the glove (it often ends up looking weird, much to the frustration of the person dressing an Anakin costumer Wink )

Now, guys my mom does not know how to use my camera, and another thing this was just putting it on to see how it fits so it was in a rush and all the belt items are not in the proper order. However, here is how it looks. Not a submission photo for going to wait on the boots.

I have an Anakin costume that I have been working on. It's pretty much done. I wanted a costume that could be worn as Anakin or a generic Jedi. To do a generic Jedi though I don't wear the glove and thus I wanted both sleeves to look like normal Jedi tunic sleeves.

Here's what I did. Under Armour makes forearm sleeves for sports like Basketball. I got 2 black ones. I wear one on top of my skin to keep me from getting too much sweat inside my glove. I then fold my tunic sleeve around my arm and then I put a 2nd Under Armour sleeve over the tunic sleeve. This holds the sleeve tight against the arm.

You still need to have a glove that has some room in it to fit the extra cloth but this will make it easier to fit the sleeve into the glove. It also allows you to multipurpose your tunic for other costumes that aren't specifically Anakin.

My second tunic had full sleeve too Smile I just wanted to point out that it was accurate Smile

but it is a great idea if you want/or have a generic jedi that has a dark brown tunic, not to get a lycra sleeve Smile

it is coming together nicely though...

Had to do some upgrades for the 501st so it took me a little longer, but I also did the same thing and just submitted to the Rebel Legion tonight. I want to say here is my finish product. Thank you to all those who help me over the months. I must say it turned out well just hope it gets approved.

Fantastic Alex, well done looks really good Very Happy

You went to all the right places for the Anakin costume.

Just a word of advice, try to adjust your food capsules near the leather pouch so they are closer to the pouch.

Looks good!

you might want to gather the tabs(both leather and cloth) so they touch under the belt
