With the DVD out i can now finally start with another costume. Episode 8 shows us two costumes that Luke probably wore after growing a beard but before getting grey hair, so i thought one of these would be perfect for me, so i don't need to color my hair for every event.
I chose the costume seen in the flashbacks, as i made a Ben Solo costume based on the same scene for my nephew.

The scenes in the movie don't offer a great view on the costume, so i also looked at the concept art and the Episode 6 Luke costume for inspiration. The best pictures come from a documentation featurette that shows Mark Hamill break down and cry on set. Here you see the full costume, but the resolution is not good enough to see all details. I spotted the seams of the cape, but the boots are hard to see. On a single picture they look like the Exile Luke Boots with puttees, in motion it looks more like bending leather. The concept art shows knee high leather boots and Episode 6 Luke had them, too, so i am wearing my Old Ben Boots in the picture. They are too short, but as the boots are never seen in the movie it might be OK for now. Maybe i will use my Exile Luke Boots for the same reason, but better proportions before i know what to buy.

I used raw silk for the pants, the vest, the obi and the stole. While i'm not 100% sure about the vest material, i decided to use this material because the episode 6 costume was made from raw silk. I also used the Episode 6 costume for the patterns. As the cape is tied under the arms you can't see how wide the shoulders are, but it adds a lot of comfort. The shirt is made from linen, but i will make a new one as the flap is a but too short and it has gotten a bit tight since i made it. For the Cape i orderes a brown woolen twill that will hopefully arrive tomorrow.



What do you think?

It's a great start. Smile But I think the stole needs to be darker so there's less contrast between it and the vest.

Thank you =)

I first thought so, too, but you can see in both red/yellow and blue/green lighting that the stole is a much lighter color than the vest, it is just slightly darker than the white shirt.





I now finished the cloak. In the documentary mentioned before you can see seams on the hood and shoulders, so i reconstructed it as a three part cloak, not a half circular one as the Jedi Master costume. The seams on the hood help with stability.
I am going for the clean look at the beginning of the sequence, so that i can combine it with my nephews Ben Solo costume. I still have to wash the silk parts a few times with blue ink added to the water to get the best color match, but otherwise i think i am pretty close now.
Although it is not shown in the movie, i will use the leather glove for fighting, simply because it is not possible with my mechanical hand glove.
The picture of the back without the cloak shows how i close the belt. I can cover it with leather like on the prequel belts if necessary.

This is looking good. I have an approved TFA Luke. I also want to do this costume, because of the shorter/darker hair and beard. I had plenty of gray to pull off the old Luke look, but my wife was sick of me with the long hair and long beard. :-)

I also studied the documentary on the DVD bonus disk. Here is what I saw...

1. Inner tunic is the same as my TFA Luke.
2. Outer tunic and tabards are same color and construction as TFA Luke, but shorter (below the waist vs. down to the ankle).
3. I think the cape is very similar to the TFA Luke cape, but with a dark brown and thicker texture material.
4. Boots are brown knee-high leather. My TFA Han boots should work fine for that.

I want to wear this to Celebration next year. So, I will start growing the beard a couple months before and do the "Just For Men" dye job just before the event.

Thanks

I've been trying to find a good pic of the back but I think the robe that Luke is wearing on Crait is the same as in the flashbacks. Don't hold me too it but going by the sleeve length as it's draped over his shoulders I think it's the same. In TFA I know the robe was brown but in TLJ it looks to be black and flows more like it had the slit up the back to the waist.
More searching and research is needed naturally but I don't think the robes he wore in TFA and TLJ flashbacks are the same.
