    Alright, I know we haven't even sniffed summer yet, but we're almost at the half-way point to Halloween and I need some advice. This year I plan on making a Jedi robe to go with the costume I made last year. Can anyone recommend some nice (yet reasonably priced) material that I could use?

    A thousand thanks...

    The Costuming and Props forum has topic w/ sticky named [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Message.aspx?topic=10839596&replies=100]"The Complete Jedi Costume Guide"[/link] and in that it mentions a fabric called Indian Homespun, also called Khadi. I've heard that it's kinda expensive though. Most of the tutorials I've seen appear to steer more towards wool, since it's thick enough to be durable and keep you warm, but I have no idea how much it costs.

    Hmm, if it's heavy enough to use for a robe it must be completely different than the "Indian Homespun" I found last summer. I had originally wanted it for my tunic since it was the perfect color, but there wasn't enough yardage left on the bolt :( I ended up using it for my original undertunic, which I ended up scrapping because I didn't like how it was turning out.

    Anyone have any good ideas of where I can get info to do a smuggler costome? I am debating about doing one just don't know where to look for ideas. I am want something different since most tend to do Solo. Even though Solo is my favorite character I don't want to embarrass myself trying to look like him. I was debating about a Jedi but then I realized that I am not Jedi material and that I am more of a smuggler in more ways than one. lol

    Jorge, check out this forum: http://boards.theforce.net/costuming_and_props/b10019/p1
    I got alot of help over there when putting together my Jedi costume. The people over there are incredibly helpful and talented. If you can't find what you're looking for, just ask. Good luck!

    You can swing over to the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/costuming_and_props/b10019/18114736/p1/?22]Thread Index[/link] thread in the Costuming and Props board for ideas on weapons and accessories. If you're not going for a specific character you can pretty much make it look like whatever you want. There should be some threads in the index for different cannon and EU characters that you can use as a reference, probably with pictures too.
