A friend offered to sale me some gray wool,for my robe.
I thought I'd better check first and have post a picture in my Flickr.
Luke did have a gray robe.

Thank you

Being on a tight budget, I am using recycled fabrics.
My inner tunic was a tablecloth and the outer was curtains.
If the gray wool is unexceptable for the robe I will of course find something else.
Pictures of all these fabrics can be found in my flickr.
Thank you for your help.

VR,
Debbi

10. Permitted Colors for Outer Tunics, Inner Tunics, Tabards, Obi, Pants and Robes/Cloaks(capes): Earth tone colors, preferably shades of brown, gray, black and white.

No problem with gray. No problem with wool.
In that light, with your camera processing and my display, it looks great!

If you're on a budget, you may struggle a bit with hardware - pleather belt is the cheapest solution, but will probably be over 40$ as well. Good to see that you have nice boots already, equestrian leather boots may go over 300$.

For lightsaber, I managed to build a static prop for ca. 20EUR, made out of chrome kitchen sink pipe and some pipe adapters. self-adhesive window sealing may be used for imitating the graflex-style grip.
It may get cheaper, if you hava a workshop - there is usually unused stuff lying around. I used some parts from a broken flashlight as well. A new "real" metal lightsaber with light is rarely <100$, but its not mandatory. If it is a must for you, I found the cheapest ones at Ultrasabers, but for the cost of mediocre craftmanship and appalling customer service. With sound and cool effects, it is more like 200$. Currently the waiting times for a saber may be months.

Thank you.
My color scheme was inspired by the "Daughter."
I did get my ultrasaber as my anniversary present last year. Wink It has a static blue blade and effects. there is no way I will be able to place it on my hip and move though. Crying or Very sad
Will look into belt, pouches and food pellets.

Yeah, an ultrasaber is bulky enough to club someone to death, even without a blade Jedi

Food pellets DIY should be easy enough - again - if you have access to basic tools/materials. There is a certain model of Stabilo pen - if you dig through forums, you'll find one with the right cap.
In front of me, I have a "Mitsubishi UB-157" pen, with a suitable cap.
I recall someone writing, that small googly eyes have a perfect shape to close the cap on the "far end".
If you have such materials, metallic paint and hot glue gun, or you can get those from a friend/diy enthusiast/auntie/old cat lady or other form of compulsive hoarder - it is basically for free. If you have to buy four pens, 3$ each, you'll be better off with a jedi starter set (pleather belt, pleather pouches, food pellets, covertec clip). I did that and I'm currently in process of being approved as a generic jedi.

I just had my first fitting for my robe and put the picture in my flickr.
I went with a gray wool for that.
I have a full inner tunic and outer tunic, obi and central tabard.
Please if you have critiques for me I'm all ears.

Thank You,
