Hey guys,

New to the forum.

Just finished my first Obi Wan Kenobi costume.

A description of what's what...

The cloth parts are made by fellow Rebel Legioner's "Alien Arms Dealer"
They were an absolute pleasure to deal with. There work is top-notch.

The belt is Museum Replicas, but the food capsules are from GTE

The lightsaber is a Force FX Hasbro Obi Wan ROTS Saber.

Pants are flat front khakis from Target.

Boots are Museum Replicas also.

I also plan on dying my hair lighter and adding gray to my temples. Smile

So what do you think?

Here are some pics thus far...









Here is a better shot of the soft parts. Smile

Hey great costume! I am looking to do the exact costume!
I know about AlienArmsDealer and I saw your info about the other items as well.

Is the custom props the best way to go for the belt and boots?

I also had a question about your lightsaber? I thought you couldn't use the Hasbro lightsaber? I thought you needed the Master Replica's one (which I plan to get - they no longer make them and are hard to find online, usually run about $250) OR a realistic looking (possibly self made) one that is just a hilt. Somebody told me the Hasbro one isn't approvable. Confused a bit.

The "cheap", extendo-blade Hasbros are not approvable...
The higher end ones are.

And great Obi Wan! Good job.

I am also (eventually) going for an Ob--Wan Kenobi (Episode III). I have almost everything I need EXCEPT boots. Here is my question:

I am considering TWO options:

1. Order from JDOS
2. Order from Museum Replicas.

JDOS is backed up for 5-6 months, however he does custom fit.
MR is on E-Bay, and can order ASAP with free shipping.

BOTH are about the same price ($330). I hear great things from JDOS, but I don't think I want to wait 6 months.

Any suggestions?!?

*(I also heard about the cheaper Funtasma boots, but they are complete crap. You get what you pay for!!!
