Good deal, someone finally read it! Thanks for the advice, I was wondering about the double layered robe idea myself. I've since found some passable flannel fabric at WalMart, but still have to make the trip to a JoAnn fabrics or something. I didn't see any useful blankets at good ol Wally World. They also had some good colored fabric for the tunic/tabbards/obi, but it wasnt the "crinkle" type. The girl that offered to sew for me says she knows how to crinkle it, but that it would take forever. About the pictures, once I go through will all this research and whatnot, you couldnt STOP me from posting about a billion pictures of myself wishing I was Obi Wan!! I've got about 85% of my lightsaber now, just have to find a couple more pieces, and then actually assemble it. I've had a couple nice windfalls in terms of lightsaber parts, and havent had to pay for any of them yet! But I digress... Thanks again!
