    I agree, Doright - I would trip every two steps if I had sleeves that huge! If you ask me, you'd have to be Samuel L. Jackson to even think of pulling off that look ..

    robo_obi: Sorry but I just can't. I would love to, though. But it really doesn't matter anyway, the only way you can get a Jedi costume in time for SWC2 is to make it yourself. The vendors that sell full Jedi robes have already stopped taking new orders in time for Episode II/SWC2.
    It seems that the traffic on most costuming forums doubles a month or so before Halloween and any other major event because this is the time that most newbies think "Hey, I think it would be cool to have a costume." This is why virtually all SW costuming vendors have a cutoff date. If they kept accepting orders they would have 50 some odd newbies wanting a SW costume in just a few weeks. Most of these guys are just one or sometimes two people and they can only produce a certain number of costumes in a period of time. I understand that for an Aussie this is a once in a life-time event and you want to go in costume but you will have to make it yourself if you want it in time for SWC2.
    I'm going to warn you that putting togethor a Jedi costume, wheather it's great or even mediocre, is pretty hard to do in just 1.5 months, even for the seasoned costumer and even moreso for the newbie. But it can be done if you work hard and do your research. Read the tutorials and get to every fabric, craft, and second hand store you can find.
    Earlier this month I posted a whole bunch of my links to tutorial websites that will help you out.

    Sam Jackson is so cool he can pull off any look.

    I don't like big sleeves. When making my robe I was thinking of making the sleeves smaller but I thought it best not to stray from the pattern I was working with. It's my first time with something of that magnitude. The one part I need to do better on my next one is the hood. The hood with the pattern I used was a bit small. I kind of like the smaller hood but it doesn?t hang right on my back when not on my head. I just used a cheap cotton to make this first one. My next attempt will be a thicker more woolish material but there is no way I can get that done before Ce2 since I am still working on robes for my Padawans.

    Since i am a good sewer for a guy. I made my own Count Dooku costume. I just went to my local fabric store, and bought a pattern that looked similar to Dooku's. Then I just replaced the neck tie-together with a chain. So it looks awosome!
    It took me 3 hours to complete it.

    robo _bi: My old site was hosted with World Access Network, an ISP that I dropped several years ago. They finally realized that they were hosting a site for a person that no longer subscribed. Most of the content that I had there, such as the pages that analyzed different styles of sabre components and info on custom sabre contruction will be redone as tutorials for Rebel Legion. My tutorial for making the costume will probably not be part of Rebel Legion, we'll write something better.

    Has anyone tried to find some of those recommended Simplicity patterns? Out of 3 stores (JoAnn Fabrics and Hancock Fabrics) I was only able to find 8311 while not even finding empty placeholders for 7438, 8291 or 8479.

    Any advice?

    Thanks,

    I had better luck finding the McCall's Patterns the various sites recommend. #8940 (I think) was the one I just found for the Karate Gi/Kimono. I used an old Karate Gi For my Jedi Costume that I had but I want to make one myself now. I am going to be working on that after I finish the communicator that I am working on.
