Generic Jedi

Post by viimatar »

Hei!

I'm taking part in a LARP in August and will be playing a Jedi. As a consequence, I will be making a Jedi costume and since I always wanted to have one, I'm going to make it from quality fabrics and with half lining as well to keep it in shape.

Any hints for a SCA-background costumer? I picked the patterns up from the RL main forum and I'm going to draw them to measure. I've done it before, so it's not too difficult or demanding. I think the collars will be the biggest challenge. My budget for props is limited at this time, so I'm concentrating on the fabrics and cut for now. I can add up more props as I go, since I'm next going to wear it to the The Force Awakens screening. I'm hoping to get tickets to the local midnight premiere.

I don't know if I'm going to apply to the Rebel Legion, but I might as well try to fulfill the requirements on the first try. What I most wonder is the cut of the trousers, and what to do with the shoes. For the purposes of the LARP I have some temporary solutions available, but nothing solid.

Welcome here! Nice to see a fellow SCA-member walk into the land of Star Wars! :) Unfortunately I am very lousy at the Jedi stuff, but there are others here that know about it who will hopefully come to your aid!

Hello and welcome.

I think the best place for you to get some of the info that you are looking for you can find here, http://www.rebellegion.com/costume-stan ... di/page/4/

It doesn't give you patterns and what not, but you get to read up the Jedi Generic Costume Standards.

There are plenty of places online with patterns and what not, I just don't know where they are at the moment.

I see that Johnnie has sent you on to Mark, but if you have other questions we have a lot of jedi here willing to help and two of us are costume judges in that category :)

The standarts are being review and renewed as we speak so keep that in mind as you go along :)
