    well im using a range. basically whatever looks right. but it has to look like its been worn alot but has a certain respectability to it. it can be any colour. Why do you want to know that? are you going to make your own?

    For myself, no, I am making one now for a commission. I use wool for the robes and if I can't get Indian Homespun for everything else, normally a cotton guaze is a good replacement. I was lucky enough to see the jedi costumes in person at CIII.


    For this guy here <-, I am using 3 different fabrics, I'm using a wonderful crepe backed satin for the cowl, wool for the cape and a really awesome cotton knit, very knotty looking for the rest.

    which guy??

    what people dont seem to understand is even if they use the correct materials you dont neccessarily get a good looking costume!

    Say what!?! The only way to screw up using the same stuff that is used in the movie is if your screwing it up, which is quite possible of course.


    <- This guy, he is Darth Nihilus from KOTOR II, the video game. He is the Sith Lord that I am making for a con coming up near Halloween.

    He'll make a great Halloween outfit, if you can get the mask

    I just got the mask off of ebay, I was going to make it myself, but this saved me about a week's worth of work and I got a deal on a Darth Revan mask as well for my good friend. I'm also trying to make a custom EL or LED lightsaber for Nihilus as well.


    Once it's done I can post pics if anyone wants to see it.

    Oh yes, it would be interesting

    Being part of the Acolytes of Revan, I have seen a number of people attempt to make Revan costumes. And being a fan of KOTOR, it would be cool to see what people come up with

    My friend would probably love to learn of this.

    if wishes were horses......

    God there are so many costumes I want to do NOW but I'm having to wait for the money.

    Started collecting pieces for SG1 get up, quite fancy a BSG uniform, my first ever made costumes now look crap so I want to re do those and that bail Organa aide on Tantive IV needs to be done as does the orange. Honestly at teh min I wouldnt mind paying a resonable price to get some done

    Once I hear from him I'll know if he does business overseas, if that is the case you'll get a pm.


    I have no idea what you want so I can't answer that question about saber/hit style.

    DAve are you on about army Surplus for the SG1 kit, because British army kit is no good.

    And if you want to do formal, you cant go wrong with the rogue dress Uniform;)

    Soon Dave, if what I've been told is correct and I have no reason to doubt it.

    What we really need to do is get this place cleaned up and sorted out for when he gets back.
