Even though I have an "official" WIP thread in the Jedi forums, since I have met a few of you guys I will probably mostly post in this thread as I work on formal Jedi outfits for Ryan and I. When we are closer to having Ryan's outfit ready for submission I will make him join the forums, though I will probably be the only one posting.

I think we are ready to order our lightsabers! The hilt I had chosen is one of the daily deals from Ultrasabers, and if we order both of them together it will be barely over $200 for both.

I have most of the fabric for our outfits, but I haven't had enough time to sit down and sew lately. Though I am afraid that the fabric I picked might not be good enough. I went with a basic cotton for the tunics, but I can rough it up a bit so it doesn't look so plain. And with making 2 robes at once I could only afford a polyester fabric, but from a distance you can't tell the difference.

I've also started to think about possible ways to style my hair so that it will stay out of my face. I'm thinking of something similar to Depa Bilaba, but obviously different because I am not attempting a face character yet. But it would be fairly easy for me to add Depa as a future costume.

I hope to be ready prior to Joliet, but my plans that day are still up in the air. We have a local fine arts festival that day that I have participated in for the past 3 years. I am still trying to see if either my friend that works part time for me or my mom could fill in there, so it might be a bit until I'm certain if we can attend or not.

Our lightsabers arrived and they are fantastic! All we want/need to do is personalize them a little bit with a touch of color and/or engraving on hilts.

And after worrying about the fabric not being right I found a deal and ordered 20 yards of osnaburg and had a 50% coupon. So once I get a few other sewing projects done and out of the way I can start on our tunics!

We both got ultrasabers. Mine is an Aeon, and Ryan picked a Dark Initiate.

We have been busy and sick so I have had time to make any progress on our outfits, but I hope to make some progress soon.

Maybe? That is a goal, but with all of the crocheting I have to do right now I rarely get a chance to sit at my sewing machine. If not Joliet, definitely by Milwaukee.

If everything works out it might only be me coming to Joliet, Ryan would stay and manage our table at the festival, and my parents will watch the boys.

I have a good lead on some comfortable boots, so that leaves just the food capsules and the belt. I've found a couple of places where I could order the capsules online, but I am at a loss for the belt.

I do have the buckles you gave me Phyllis at the work party last fall, but nothing else yet. As a larger woman I will probably need a bigger belt than any of the places that sell finished belts offer, but I have no experience working with leather so I have no clue where to start.

I know I don't have any leather hides that are long enough to cut a belt from for you...
but..
if you want to order one of these strips (comes in 2 1/2" wide and 3" wide width):

https://www.tandyleather.com/en-usd/search/searchresults/4576-191.aspx

and have it sent to me...I can make you a belt...
I have enough dye, rivets, and a strip of narrow leather to make a belt...

just putting it out there...

My boots arrived! I found them on Amazon at a good price for a wide calf boot and they are actually pretty comfortable. I might have to rethink how I will do my pants because they are pretty snug on my calves and I was not able to tuck my normal dress pants into them when I tried them on this afternoon. And I will need to wear them a bit to help break them in because they are a hair too narrow and my toes are squished.

Cool!!!

Boots are critical...and when you have long trooping events or a parade ..
boots can make or break you

Very Happy

The only downside to the boots is that they have a 2 inch heel, while the guidelines call for only 1 to 1 1/2 inch heels. Hopefully that won't be a problem when I'm ready to submit the costume.
