Hi every one, I'm new and would like to get into trooping. I want a generic Jedi but I have no idea where to start.

Help!

What do you need help with!? First off I would look at the guidelines that the RL has in place for Generic Jedi, and follow that to a 'T'.

Check out the Jedi area here on the forum. Tons of information on sources for things you'll need and the rules for specific costumes. We can definitely get you answers for questions that you may have and possibly local help depending on where you are located.

Physically I'm located about 2 hours out of St. Louis near Cuba.
Where would be best to get the fabric?

I have been looking at a website called Imperial Boots for my boots (duh) and belt, are they any good?

Also I found a tutorial on here for the robes and tunic where he walks you through making the pattern, but I was wondering if there was an existing pattern I, or Mother, could alter.

We don't have anyone directly in Cuba, but there are quite a few of us here in STL.

Fabric you can get from JoAnn's, Hancocks Fabric, or online. There are various types you can use as well.

Definitely read through the standards here:
http://www.rebellegion.com/jedi-costume-standards-generic/

Imperial Boots looks to be a guy who came on the scene recently making boots for the 501st. I haven't seen any of his new work yet, but looks promising having an extra vendor.

I don't have a generic pattern myself for jedi as I had mine made, but potentially another member may.

http://www.padawansguide.com/ is a valuable resource for if you are wanting to make you own.

Also, http://www.twinrosesdesigns.com/ does an AMAZING job, if you are willing to foot the bill.

if you need any help finding materials or having anything made, give me a shout. I have made my own outfit and belt, as well as modifying a generic pair of boots to spruce up my Jedi. I'm only about an hour east of Cuba and am more than willing to help you with anything you need.
