The Story:

This costume is for my wife - I'm always trying to involve her in the costuming things I do and sometimes I get through to her... this is one of those case :)

I was working on Obi-Wan Kenobi and was saying to myself that I was still embarking on a cosplay project with armor making involved. I wanted to do a fabric intensive cosplay soon but I didn't know what. It's by talking about that with my wife that she said something like: "Then you just have to make me a Jedi costume". I was so amazed I accepted on the spot. We agreed that she'd picked the fabric and I'd do the costume.

I loved working on this costume because I could let the creative juice flow. I had no reference picture to work off with, no pressure on accuracy - just fun doing something I hoped my wife would liked.

 

The Making:

My wife and me went to a fabric store and picked up like 4 - 5 differents fabrics from the clearance section - total price below 60$ (and part of that was to be used for my Obi-Wan). I had enough fabric for all the costume: Jedi Robe, Tunic, Obi, Tabards, etc.

Only thing left to do after all that sewing was the belt - which is made like my Obi-Wan as my Leather from craft foam tutorial details.

 

The lightsaber was also bought for this costume - however, not from the same store as my Obi-Wan Lightsaber. This lightsaber was the first one I bought and I purchased it already converted to a Luxeon LED (it's a MR ANH Luke saber). It came from this store: Ultrasabers. I'm very happy with the end product, though the wait (received the saber 9 weeks after the purchase) was killing me.
