Hello,

I am am cosplayer from Chicago and recently did my first Star Wars costume for SWCC. I spoke with the nice people at the table and became interested in joining the group.

I was using your style guide to complete the costume so I thought I should make myself useful. Any comments, suggestions, advice, critique are all welcome.



I am about 50% done , need to add many details, figure out how to make gloves, and finish the lightsaber. I am making it bladeless out of PVC pipe. Going to redo skirt, belt (real leather), tabards, shoulder wrap, and chest piece and add padding to the shoulder wrap/chest.

Two problems I haven't figured out yet is where the saber clip goes and what type to use. Problem #2 was that my skirt got ripped by the crotch, so I need to figure out how to give it some more space, maybe a pleat or something?

I would start with the costume standard for this costume which can be found here:

http://newsite.rebellegion.com/jedi-temple-guard-the-clone-wars/

Then I would search the approved costumes for Temple Guards that have already been approved and see if they posted a "work in progress" thread....

there were several WIP threads posted in the Jedi forums that would be very useful...

as far as I know, no one at NSB is making one of these costumes as yet....so...we don't have an expert to guide you.
