One thing that makes all the difference with a Jedi outfit is knowing where to pull and tug the fabric to make it fit right. Since my dad is professional tailor, I was lucky enough to get some tips, not only on how my costume was made, but on how to wear it:

- Always make sure then you're pulling things DOWNWARD. Especially with the outer tunic, pulling down along the bottom seam will make it look less rumpled and more fitted. Where the two flaps fold over each other on the chest, tug in the direction of the seam. That way the tunic will fall flat on the chest and will make a nice clean collar effect.

- When putting on the obi, start by putting it on slightly higher than you would wear it, and barely tighter than is comfortable for you. It should fit very snug. Then, grab the very bottom of its seam and pull it down to the desired level in little tugs, little by little from back to front to side to side, until it sits right. Again, it should be very fitted!

-Finally, tug the bottom of the tunic again all the way around to make sure it is as full down the legs and seat as possible. Add the belt (again, a SNUG fit!) and you're good to go! Be warned, a lightsaber WILL pull your belt down. That's okay (Mace Windu's belt is always drooping), but keep the belt tight to minimize the effect.

Since we don't walk about in tunics and robes, knowing how to wear them can be as important as knowing how to make them. It is, however, a great costume, and I would love to see it in person! And again, let me know if you want a real covertech clip!

Thanks for the tips, I'll work on it later this week.

And I think I have the covertech clip covered tag, thanks!

Any time! Glad to be of help. It'll be nice to have more Jedi trooping around Provo; look for me at any BYU-area events! Smile

Out of curiosity, is there a member roster or something? I just wanted to see all the members of the base.

Also, based on the pictures i've posted here, are there any other suggestions to make the suit better? (besides how to wear it and tightening the belt). Any add-ons and such? I know I need a better covertec clip, and i'll probably try to get some better pouches and a few food capsules or something. It may be longer than anticipated to finish up my suit before submitting for approval. I'll still be around the boards and will try to make it to a few events just to meet people though.

To see all the members of our base hit "unit listings" the go to rogue base. It should show all the members here. As for finishing your costume, I started mine 4 years ago. There's always something to improve! Pouches or capsules would be a good start; you will be surprised what a difference they make.

Lol nah it happens. And if you still want to get a proper covertec I got you covered. I'll give you a fair deal! Wink

do you have one that includes the attachment? I'm going to put it on my BYB saber so it can clip on.

I got it for 15 bucks plus like 4 bucks shipping. You can have it for 13 - 15, whatever you can afford.
