Somebody should get working on a Darth Sion costume.
go for it. Be sure to post pics when it's done.
Sooo... I have stuff. I've got maybe 45% of my Visas done, and I really need to find a working sewing machine (mine keeps jamming up, and I'm not good enough with it to try to fix it).

I discovered I can work on the beading during philosophy. I can sew and be all philosophical at the same time, apparently.
Here's hoping it's done by Halloween.
I didn't see this posted anywhere, so I thought I'd put it up. Here's a collage of Darth Revan I put together from several pics I got off the internet. The picture of the lady wearing the neck armor isn't supposed to be Reven, I just liked the armor and added it there.
I know it isn't a Jedi costume, but it does deal with the KOTOR Era. I am currently in pre-production of a KOTOR Mandalorian costume, but before I start, I wanted to get some information on the helmet. Specifically, how to make it. I'm a college student, and my budget is rather low. Does anyone have any tips/tutorials/sites on how to build the KOTOR Mandalorian helmet without vaccum-forming?
I already have an idea about the t-visor faceplate; I plan to use a "Jason" mask, modifying it as needed. I also plan to build the helmet in a way as to allow the t-visor faceplate to slide to the top (or even back) of my head, revealing my face (it does get hot in a helmet, after all). Any advice on this would be much appreciated.
Also, I know Sintra is used for the Fett-style armor; would it be just as acceptable for the KOTOR-era armor?
Sw00tiness! I finally (mostly) finished my Visas Marr costume! I still need to do the beading around the bottom of the headpiece, but I ran out of beads. Ah well, for another time.
Ignore the messy dorm-ness in the background.
Lookin awesome! Can you see through the veil, and if so, what sort of material did you use?
Thats a great visas cstume! I always thought she dressed really well for a blind character
I'm thinking of doing an atton costume for a con next year.
Bumping due to recent inquiry!
Also, I just noticed- the Visas up there is me, Leiraya is my sock. Oops on that one...
After playing KOTOR2, I decided that I either wanted to make a Mira or a Visas costume. My guy friends said I should do Mira, but I think I've decided on Visas.
What sort of fabric would you suggest for the Visas costume?
Hey, wow, GREAT visas costume!! I don't know anything about knights of the old republic except that a friend of mine loves it, but wow, what a costume!!!!
Unlocked for recent query
I've decided to make a Kotor Jedi costume. It will be pretty much like the blue one, but without the shoulder pads and extra things on the sleeves. If anyone has made something like this, I would really appreciate seeing pictures of it. Any suggestions about how to make the bottom and top pieces coming from different sides would also be great.

Your Visas Marr looks great.
No worries of the dorm room. When your out battling badguys, you've no time to keep the quarters clean.
Did you bead on top of a tule(mispelled) fabric(a netting type fabric, there's some that is super soft not stiff like in wedding dresses.) so you can see out of it?
Very nice Visas I like your use of untraditional materials to complete this costume. Its very unique!
I completed a Visas Marr a few months ago (photos below), and I still have quite a lot to do for it. I just wanted to get it done for Dragon Con '08! (I probably should have decided to not use this costume for that con, due to some visual errors of the costume, but it turned out all right for the most part! I'm still working on the veil, because it is too "poofy" and some other small affects on the costume. Let me know what you think and if there is anything else I can do to get it to perfection before my next outting! Cheers!)

I'm glad someone bumped this thread back up, because it MUST NOW be asked:
Did anyone EVER make the actual "standard" Jedi robes of the KOTOR era?
You know the ones, the ones with the nifty tails on the back of the tunic!
I've been wanting to put together a KOTOR era Jedi costume for ages, but until someone figures out a pattern for that tunic, I'm in limbo.
Every time I see the dark jedi outfits- the ones with the grey looking unitard and the purple hood, with the black mouth covering, it reminds me of the [link=http://www.padawansguide.com/fidm/maggie/black_hm1.jpg]senate handmaiden dress[/link]. No clue why.
Of course, now I want to make it. [image=http://www.whattheyplay.com/media/images/product/xbox/star-wars-knights-of-the-old-republic-3151/screenshot/tatc3-screenshot.jpg]
The hood appears to be a purple fabric; I personally think that the veil-esque mouth covering has an appearance of velvet. There are, of course, shoulder pads. Not a fan.
I have wanted to do that one, but it's on a long list of costumes.
To me it looks like it is black and gray.
When you have dialogue with them, the hoods look very purple. I don't have a pic of it, though.
I am pretty sure that other than the main hood, the rest is actually black.
EDIT: If you look at the pic I posted really closely, you can see the purple as compared to the black.
I have a kind of stupid question...
I lost touch with the Star Wars world when I was in college (gorram homework) and now I keep hearing "KotOR" all over the place and I have no clue what that is! Can someone 'splain please? *bashful grin*
LOL, no prob, hun. KOTOR is Knights of the Old Republic, a role playing video game.
So are these prequel era knights, or earlier? And I suppose their costumes aren't "generic jedi"?
Way earlier. Old Republic, as in (I believe) 1000 years before the PT or more?
