Hello everyone,

Please find I am working on Ki Adi Mundi costume for Rebel Legion/KJO approval. This will be my first Rebel Legion approval, to become new member of Freedom base.

From searching the forum, I did not see any pre-existing Ki Adi Mundi standards or other WIPs.

Would greatly appreciate Rebel Legion/KJO input, specific to the fabric(s) for Ki Adi's long sleeve shirt/lined tunic?

Some potential options explored so far are Matka Silk, Oatmeal Polyester, Lined Linen, and Suede Velvet blend.

Look forward to KJO Costume Judge suggestions.

Thank you in advance.
Ian

You are correct that there is no standard at this time, so you will likely need to submit references to support your choices on the costume.

Now, the shirt in question: looking at references myself, it is pretty clearly a nubbly woven. It does not appear to have any pile, so I would personally rule out any velvet/corduroy/velveteen right off the bat. A heavy silk matka or noile are distinct possibilities, but it really depends on the texture of the particular one you find. Polyester describes a fiber, not a weave, so I could not say either way whether the one you are looking at might suit. Similiarly, linen blends come in all kinds of textures. In general, I would recommend posts reference images of the shirt, and then posting pictures of the specific fabrics you are considering, as that will make it easier to give feedback.

Both of those suggestions look noticeably too smooth to me. Ki Adi's tunic is a high texture slub woven. Both of the suggested fabrics lack slubs and are medium texture at most. I would definitely keep looking.
