Gday and welcome Ramobi, Obi wan is a great character but as a named character there are some tighter restrictions on getting approved, but don't let that deter you. There are a few places to look for more information you can look here http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=524 or for the actual costume guidelines here http://www.rebellegion.com/obi-wan-kenobi-episode-i-the-phantom-menace/

ok for the food capsules have a look at this thread http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=28412 so going by the Costume guide you'll need 12 - 4 silver and 8 gold.

With the approval process once you submit your pics a panel of judges will look over your pics - and being a named character they are more likely to be nit picky about the costume. If they have any issues with it and don't think its up to standards they will send let you know what needs to be fixed up/changed. Sometimes it will be minor points but sometimes it can call for a major change.

As a suggestion takes some photo's of your progress so far and post a wip = work in progress thread in the Jedi section, that way if someone ( e.g. a judge ) sees any problems they can comment on it and you can fix it before you submit your final work.

Hi Ramobi-wan! Welcome to our base.

My name is Tom and I am the Jedi Temple Master for Qld.
Your costume is looking good so far. Don't forget about the food capsules on your belt - I think for obi wan Ep 1 you need 8 gold and 4 silver.

Are your boots reddish brown? they have the straps in the right place -nice work.

Stromraven has given some great advise, if you put up pictures as you go we can have look and answer any questions you have. Please don't worry if the costume judges say something needs to change. This can happen often with a 'face' character. I have seen some get a bit more work and get approved - they always look fantastic!

If their is anything you would like help with please let us know.

How did you hear about us?

Good evening master,
Thanks for the warm welcome. I'm working on the food capsules and I have some belt pouches coming soon Smile
Yes my boots are the same colour as the belt, reddish brown tho not sure why it looks so dark in that photo lol.
Thanks for your help, I heard about you guys by looking at the 501st and I saw that there was a light side legion.
I'm very keen to try and the my costume approved just got to Finnish it off first Smile
I see you are in brizzy are you guys doing any thing for the new movie? We are in Bundaberg Smile

ok so you figured out the pic posting Cool

Yes often the boots and belt don't look right in photos I think its got to do with the angle. The only problem i see is the colors your pants and tunic appear to be 2 different colors in the pics and they may need to be the same Khaki color, also your tabards may need to be shortened at the front.

All in all though it looks as though you are on track, if you do have problems getting approved as a named character, you may find it easier to get approved as a generic Jedi first and work on Padawan Obi as a longer term project.

Hey,

Im not sure what plans we have for the new movie - apart from seeing it a few times!

Hopefully closer to the time we might get some official invites from various Cinemas and Disney / Rebel Legion approval to attend the events.
Watch this space!

If you like I can see if a costume judge can take a quick informal look at your pictures to see if they can give you some advise? Stormraven may be correct about the colour and length of tabards (mine used to always fall off).

Face characters are pretty difficult, I'm working on one myself now and not sure how it will turn out. BUT, a generic jedi is just as much fun, and you can still use your Obi wan lightsaber. Is that an ultrabsers one? Im a big fan of those guys - but they are making me poor!
