So I'm looking into doing a tusken for my second costume, but I can't find any guide or tutorial to help me with the outerrobe, and I am not savvy enough at costume designing yet to make it myself without any tutorial or such. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Kinda simple if you can find fabric of this size

If you can't you can sew two pieces together. Very Happy

So I'm getting close to done with my costume, I ended up buying alot of parts pre-made due to lack of time and good deals. I do want to add something to it to make tusken sounds, any advice on how to do this? I know I've seen it done in a Chewbacca costume before, and it gave a nice effect.

"berzerker" over on the Krayt Clan boards makes a custom chip, push-button activated, plugs into your vox amp. Plays the yell all the way through once.

Best thing I've ever picked up... Cool

I picked up the "Personal Soundtrack Shirt" and spliced together some mp3s, including two breathing fonts that loop. It has 20 options for tracks to play and it's all at a push of a button. Going to try it out this weekend.

Just wondering how that worked out for you?

Also I'm getting relativley close to finished, but am having a small problem with the robes and my neck, I'm working on an OT tusken and don't know how to cover my neck. I know the prequel tuskens had scarfs but Original Trilogy ones did not, at least from all the pictures I've seen, all skin needs to be covered though, do I use the same wrapings that I used for my arms/boots or do I do something different to cover the skin there?

Even though I have the scarf, I have almost a foot of fabric coming down from the bottom of the head. This pools and scrunches up around the neck like a balaclava. I tuck this into my robes, then put the scarf around.

I ended up getting a sand color tactical hood for the neck problem, blends in quite well. I'm just waiting on a gaffi stick I ordered and then I'll hopefully be ready to submit. Whats everyone think so far?

(The room is a bit messy but its the only white door I have to take pictures in front of)

Don't forget to weather the robes so that it looks like you've been living in the desert for awhile.

Yeah thats the last thing I'm gonna do before submitting it, I'm just terrified of screwing it up somehow.

dont be afraid of screwing up, its how we learn. ive screwed a LOT of stuff up, but I keep them and post them for others to learn from.

I just threw my third attempt at robes in the wash. the second set that ladyK sewed up for me shrunk a LOT and are far too short. My first set (as brilliant as they are) are too skinny and only come to my mid arm.

I would remove some of the heavy wraps you have over your gloves for an OT era male. Mine end at my wrist. I sewed the first four rows of arm covers (tattered strips of tan duck cloth) and weathered them heavily with BBQ pit grease, etc.
My robes were sewed together, dyed in strong tea, spritzed with a variety of earthtones and then had clay pounded into them. Other than the problem with how short they are width wise they look a lot like the canyon rim robes.
You dont need to go that ballistic on the weathering, but some weathering to show age and use is needed.

Here is my build thread, and the thread on how I aged my bandoleirs. they were putty colored leather when I got them from IMA militaria.
