SWTOR Humble Hero style Jedi Robes

Author: Jason Ellenburg (Volund Starfire)

CHARACTER DESCRIPTION



The Jedi Order is the ancient peacekeeping organization of those sensitive to the Force, mainly the light side, dedicated to protecting the Galactic Republic. Its philosophies and objectives are considered the direct opposite to that of the Sith Order.

It is governed by the Jedi Council and led by the Grand Master. Jedi Order activities are officially outside the Senate’s jurisdiction; unofficially, the Jedi Council prefers to be in harmony with the Senate’s wishes, and avoid a threat to their independence from Senate action

COSTUME REFERENCES AND REFERENCE GUIDE



With the inclusion of the Relnex-style Jedi Robes from Star Wars: The Old Republic last year, I would like to submit the Humble Hero costume set for Rebel Legion approval. It is a full set costume purchased from the Cartel Market, as opposed to the Relnex costume which is comprised of several similar costume designs that share the same over-all look. The Cartel Market is part of the P2P, or Pay-to-Play, service that requires the purchase of special in-game currency using micro-transactions. The entirety of the costume that I am submitting is the unmodified version of the items from the Humble Hero Armor Set.

The costume itself is designed and based off of the Return of the Jedi Luke Skywalker costume ensemble. It includes a recolored and slightly modified variant of all the pieces in the Jabba’s Palace scene with the addition of a second glove and a belt similar to that in the Death Star Duel scene. It includes a shirt, vest, stole, belt/sash (explained below), trousers, boots, and gloves.

My plan is to recreate this costume as perfectly as possible in real life. I will also include a prospective costume standard to assist the LMO with the standard creation. In addition to this, I will be using this thread as a WIP for the building of this full costume.




SHIRT

The shirt is a long-sleeve shirt that is green in color. It is designed in a tab-collar or clergy-style and includes a full bib front. There is also a cuff added to the end of the sleeve, but no visible buttons on the cuff. The underside of the arm includes a seam that extends from the armpit to the cuff. The sleeves are fit, but loose, around the arms and the bib is stiffened and not wrinkled.


VEST

The vest is designed in a short kimono style that crosses above the sash. It is tan in color and sleeveless, with the arm holes being a normal size for a suit jacket sleeve. It is thicker than the edges of the shirt which suggests a self-lined piece. It extends down to cover the crotch by approximate 1 inch in the front and crotch level in the rear. It is a simple jacket design with seams up the sides and across the tops of the shoulders.


STOLE

The stole is the same color/material as the vest. The ends extend slightly above the bottom of the outer tunic. They are the same width as the sash (approximately 4½” wide in the case of this body type). As with the vest, the thickness of the material suggests it is self-lined.


TROUSERS

The trousers are made in a scrub design with no pockets or fly in the same color/material as the shirt. They are fit, but loose, on the legs in much the same way as the sleeves of the shirt. The only seamlines are on the outside of the leg and the inseam, making it a 2-piece pattern.


UTILITY BELT & SASH

The belt is the most customized design of the entire costume. It includes the belt, pouch, sash, and lightsaber clips.

The belt is brown leather and has a silver weathered and dented octagonal buckle. Measuring the male character height as approximately 6’3” tall (large male body type when compared to the normal male body type at 6’), the belt comes out to be 2½ inches wide (the female belt is 2 inches wide, as will be discussed below). The belt has a pair of ¾ inch silver snaps located to the right of the buckle (wearer’s right) and a 1 inch depressed circle to the left of the buckle.

There is a single pouch behind the right hip. It is a rectangular box pouch that measures 1×3¾×7½ inches with a 1¾ inch flap secured by a silver snap.

The belt includes a Luke-style silver lightsaber clip to the left of the buckle, held on by a pair of ½ inch wide rivets/screws. Beside the lightsaber clip is a 1 inch wide d-ring held on by a 1 inch leather strap which is secured to the belt by a pair of horizontally placed ¼ inch rivets/screws. The hook rivets are on the upper quarter of the belt while the strap rivets are secured to the lower quarter of the belt. Both items are attached UNDER the sash.

The sash is 4½ inches wide and is natural-colored, in contrast with the outer tunic and tabards. Because of the way the saber clip and d-ring fall under the sash, it is connected to the belt in at least that one area. This is not an animation error, as other belts with both saber clips and d-rings are over their respective sash.


BOOTS

The boots are brown leather and are made up of a low boot and a gaiter. The low boot has a small heel and the gaiter is designed to fit over the top of the foot and extends the boot to the “over-the-calf, but not above the knee” height. The gaiters have a seam on the inside of the leg in-game, which could be construed as an “inside zipper.”


GLOVES

The gloves are brown leather wrist-length gloves that are unadorned.


LIGHTSABER

As with standard generic Jedi rules, the lightsaber must fall into the Rebel Legion standards.

HEIGHT DISPARITY
There is a difference in the heights of the characters that change the size of the costume between the shorter and taller body-types. For this, I am using only the standard male height and the big male height. Additionally, the fat male body has vastly exaggerated proportions and is not even worth looking at.

The primary difference in sizes falls to the stole, belt, sash, and pouch. The measurements I list above are for the large male height. The standard male height is closer to 5’10” tall. This gives the following measurements to the costume pieces:

Stole/Obi width: 3¾ inches
Belt width: 2 inches
Pouch height: 6 inches
Pouch width: 3 inches
Pouch depth: ¾ inch
Pouch flap: 1½ inches
Circle indentation: ¾ inches
All other measurements the same




GENDER DISPARITY
The biggest difference between the male and female versions of this costume, beyond the height difference, is that the female variant of this costume has an exaggerated skirt on the pattern. This is probably due to the fact that the female body types have hips and a waist. It can best be accomplished with a simple addition of a more defined curve to the bottom (waist down) of the Vest. Otherwise, the female bodies use the same measurements for the various pieces as the males do, although the large female height is equal to the Normal male height. The female heights are generally the same as the male heights, particularly with regards to this costume’s measurements.

Yours!

I will note that the standard should match the ingame model, not have matching items as optional. Not matching reference pictures will make it very hard for judges to actually judge the costume.

My reasons for making these items optional, but requiring three, are because of both in-game references as well as real-life building of the costume.

Sash Attachment: Lightsaber hook and d-ring attach to the belt through the sash.
The in-game references show these items to be under the sash. However, if only the belt is worn without the outer tunic or trousers, they are shown to be only attached to the belt itself. Thus, there are attached to the belt, but can also be attached under the sash.

Belt Adornments: Circle indentation to left of buckle and two silver snaps to right of buckle.
The belt adornments, specifically the circle indentation, are not always visible on the belt depending on the level of detail the game is set at.

Belt Buckle: Belt Buckle has a notch cut in the left side of the buckle.
The notch and weathering of the belt buckle, like the belt adornments, are only visible in the highest graphics settings.

Belt Pouch Adornment: Belt Pouch includes a folded leather greeblie attached inside the pouch matching the reference pictures.
While the inset piece is visible at pretty much all times, it is shown more as an item inside the pouch than a part of the actual pouch.

Boot Gaiters: Boots have a separate gaiter located over them to give them the appropriate height.
The boot gaiters are again only visible in the higher levels of detail. At lower detail levels, they look like a seam along the ankle of the boot.

Saber Attachment: If lightsaber is worn on the belt, it attaches behind the saber clip and D-Ring.
When the lightsaber is on the belt, it does not attach to the saber clip or D-Ring. Instead, it looks to connect behind both toward the top of the belt with what could be a covertec clip.

IMO, if you're going to do the costume, you need to do it right, with the details. If you aren't, then why do it? But, that's just my opinion.
