I think im going to wait till its all with me, though i need to place my order for my boots as like Indiana Joyce says Jose Daniel is making boots so i just need to place the order...though im planning on upgrading my surround sound first for the blu-ray release so it might have to wait for another pay day

Automotive cowboy boots are the wrong way, wrong color. This I do not know why they bother to make the boot completely wrong color.

For anyone looking to make this costume:

DO NOT use the costume resoure : "Collection " on the SW blu rays !

They have dressed the costume with the wrong belt (it is from Death Star Duel) & has the wrong boots !

Shocked Oppps!
Good spot, I've not made it all the way the extras from the blu-rays to see, I'm going to have to check it out!

On another note I've just ordered my boots by Jdos Props, can't wait get to try them.
Just gotta try and source the material for a screen accurate vest, any ideas what it is?

What "vest" are you talking about? He doesn't wear a vest on Dagobah, it's a tank, like a type of undershirt.

I would get a thermal underwear top, cut the sleeves off to about an inch or two from the shoulders, and tuck in under. Then dye it the right color. At least that's what I would do, as I consider doing this costume too.

I think you may be onto something there. If you take a look at the pictures of Luke without the backpack, you can see the shoulder looks like there's more material there than the rest of the shirt


So, I would guess just getting any regular undershirt and hemming the sleeves back to the shoulder should do the trick.
I tried looking at some Army surplus sites because I was thinking they might have the right color and I think all their undershirts are too new in style. So the shoulder seems are further forward and made out synthetics for the wicking action...so, probably just getting a white cotton t-shirt, hemming the sleeves and then dying would be your best bet. Though, you may want to get a shirt at Joann's or Dharma's that is specifically for dying. Otherwise you may end up with a shirt that used synthetic thread so the thread won't dye. Dharma and Joann t-shirts meant for dying use a cotton based thread, so you don't end up with that issue. Or maybe it's an organic and not specifically cotton...ether way the thread takes the dye so you don't end up having white/weird colored stitching. I've rambled enough Laughing
