Title: A New Jedi Emerged on May 4th
Post by: For Tyeth on May 05, 2021, 06:10:44 PM
Hello Everybody,

For a while I have been commenting that I was putting together a new robe and tunic outfit but it was taking a bit of time as I was purchasing parts as and when I could afford them (or when available)....well May The FORth Be With You day was a big day for me as I was able to reveal the outfit. I still have accessorising to complete such as getting pouches and capsules but I've decided again that I'll get what I can when I can but the leather and soft parts are complete. So here is the newly attired Master For Tyeth...

(https://ftsabersite.files.wordpress.com/2021/05/il_1588xn.1917929597_d9x2.jpg)

The base tunic set is a CosplaySky costume but I discarded the belt and robe as they were too lightweight (pleather/velcro belt and the robe was a very lightweight semi transparent polyester that was just too "shiny" and would blow around in the slightest breeze). So they had to go but the replacements I got I think are perfect.

The under tunic is a long scrunch sleeved V neck lounge top I picked up from ASOS fashion believe it or not. It gave the loose open neck look that Qui-Gon wore and had the ruched sleeves. But it cost $16 not the hundred dollars plus that a Noil silk top would cost.

The belt cost me $77 and is 3mm (10oz) leather with metal buckle and Chicago Studs. The belt fastens using a "Stud and Keyhole" system like hook and loop but using two of the studs as the hooks, and has 6 closure positions. To cover the fastening there is a wraparound sleeve which has the Jedi Order symbol embossed onto it (and yes there is a Sith version of the belt if that's your flavour!). IMHO this is a beauty of a belt for the price and shipping. I got the belt from the ETSY store Leather3DNeon.

The boots are as I have stated elsewhere, custom Gladiator-Polo Qui-Gon Jinn replicas and set me back $300 but man they are unbelievable quality. And I can use them for everyday wear too.

The robe I reckon was another great find from ETSY and set me back $90. It is a wool mix robe and fits as if made to measure - but I only gave my height measurement! The sleeves fall to the first knuckle, the hood is enormous and the material is out of this world. (I will suffer wearing this during summer but I don't care if I look good!) The robe has overlocked double stitching and even has laundry care labels (<not important to the look but a very nice touch). The ETSY store is called Creativesewandsew.

In all I am stoked how this turned out (I even got praised by a professional TV/film costume designer I know). The great thing is that the robe, belt and boots should hopefully last and the tunic set can be replaced fairly easily if needed as it is basic but works (also it isn't as bleached white as it appears - it is a nice sand/ecru/Hummus colour).
Thanks to Mrs Tyeth who acted as my photographer for this photoshoot!

Anyhoo I've raved on far too long. Thanks for checking this out and I hope you all enjoyed your May 4th and 5th celebrations too!

Hello Janx,

Thanks so much, but I still have a way to go before I'm up to the skills and level of costuming members like yourself, mrg149 and Sirliftalot are at. But this feels good for me!

It might look better once I 've been able to get to the barbers shop. Due to lockdowns in the UK I haven't had a proper haircut for over a year  :o Hopefully when I get a trim I'll look a bit more like my "Spirit Jedi" Qui-Gon.

point incoming.

Don't sell yourself short FT. That is a PROPER JEDI COSTUME and you look incredible. Just because you didn't  build anything ddoesn't ean you did not have a good eye for quality and just the right bits. GREAT JOB

II've een looking at the cosplaysky robes. How do you like them?

The boots are amazing but waaaaaaaay outta my price range

agree with MRG.  you've put together a great outfit, don't underrate yourself.  Finding good deals and sourcing takes skill as well.  That belt for instance, $77, is about the same as the one I made, parts-wise.  Cost me about $120 to make mine.  So that's a great find.

Even my outfit, most of it is bought not built.  Totally acceptable.  I make the stuff I'd enjoy making, and buy the stuff I can afford or isn't worth my time making or I can't make because my skills have limits as well.

It's all good.  I'm happy when folks get a costume working. don't matter how :)

Hello mrg149,

Again thanks to you. The CosplaySky tunic set is quite good. It won't fall apart on you as soon as you pick it up - it is well stitched and and hangs wel. The linen material is a nice medium weight so it will be warm enough in winter and cool for summer months (especially if you wear an under tunic - the CosplaySky has an attached scarfe style dickie sewn to the collar that I took off as it was a chocolate brown colour). The pants that come with the tunic are very basic (polyester) but have a button and zip fly plus front pockets and belt loops for a normal 1-1.5 ince fashion belt and two elasticated panels on the waistband.

And as I mentioned the colour of the tunics comes off as a bleached white but is much more sand/tan almost a Rich Tea biscuit shade (I think you're UK based so should know about McVities biscuits!). If you want to see the Mace Windu dark tan version of this set the Youtuber ACE Cosplay has a video of it on her channel.

Er, yes the boots were pricey but when I got a refund from my bank for mispaid insurance Mrs Tyeth convinced me the boots would be an investment. I did hesitate even though I wanted them.

Thanks again and a point coming back for your kind comments.

Hi there, I have certainly caught the costuming bug! I have started putting 10-15 dollars a month aside to save up and I plan on getting the other two versions of the tunic set so I can mix and match the colours (there is also an all black Anakin version and a dark tan Windu set).

I was also blessed with patience I think  which really helps - it took me 30+ years before I could assemble this!

p.s. I did stitch some hook and eye fasteners inside the tunic to help it drape properly and I did attach Press Stud/Snap fasteners on the shoulders to stop the tabards slipping so I did some sewing myself ;D

Looking great, FT!!!

Your ensemble is topnotch and the pics are wonderful (cheers to Mrs. T)!  I'm thinking that Anakin/Vader would've lost if it had been you helping Obi-wan  ;)

Seriously, outstanding job my friend!

WELL deserved point  :)

Hello Dutch, thank you for inspiring me to get seriously started on this. We conversed about costumes quite a bit in our PMs (regards FFA Outfitters etc) and seeing your nice ensemble with the embroidery made me want my own threads. Though I did  get Cosplaysky tunics so I had less to pay in import duties and shipping.

Funny you mention Obi-Wan as this tunic set is described as his on the website. Anyhow it should hold up to scrutiny when I'm at a Comic Con.
Thanks again and I'll pass on your thanks to Mrs T!

Hi Psycho, the cloak is unbelievable for what I paid for it. It is a real nice heavyweight 60% Wool and 40% Polyester mix so it is soft but hardwearing (it drapes perfectly) and as I mentioned it's going to be very warm during the summer months. Luckily I'll be able to forego wearing the under tunic so I should  feel a little cooler.

Thanks for checking my costume out and I hope all is well with you and your folks. point inbound.

Thanks for the "review". I'm now considering the "sithy" version of those for my costume....

but I must correct 1 error: I am not UK based... I'm in Jersey...NEW Jersey :-P

Hi Darth Rondoudou, I was very fortunate with the belt and boots as I was worried the colours may not quite match closely enough but they were fairly close in shade to each other. Both have excellent craftsmanship on them. I had to send in around 15 separate measurements for the boots. What you can't see from the picture are the soles of the boot which are leather and wow are they gorgeous - they actually look as if they are made of polished wood rather than leather.

And the belt was around half the price of others I had seen and only a few dollars more than the pleather belts on Amazon and at Galaxy's Edge. It really is a piece of art with chamfered/rounded edges, metal hardware and the embossing.

Thanks for the kind words and hopefully when the UK starts having Comic Cons again I should have some more photos out in the Galaxy! point on it's way to you.

OOps! my positioning scanners must be off. I think I got the impression you were UK based as I think you mentioned Kenickys Fancy Dress which is UK based (in Coventry). My apologies.
Glad the review helped. The CosplaySky set is just at the price where it has quality but isn't too expensive when you need to repair/replace it cos of natural wear and tear. You can also buy the set without the cloak making it slightly cheaper too. Obviously I bought the cloaked version as it was the first one I've bought.

Regards sizing I am 5ft 11/6ft and slim build and I ordered the large male size.


Title: Re: A New Jedi Emerged on May 4th
Post by: mrg149 on May 06, 2021, 06:54:09 PM
you're right FT! My first set of jJedi obes came from Kenicky's. I picked weird fabric but everything else wasn't bad. However, seeing those Cosplay Sky robes makes me regret my choice a bit.

You're the same height as me but I'm not slim by a bit at the 220 lbs mark. I wonder if the same size would work as I normally wear a size large (U.S.)? Did you go straight from their website or amazon? "off the rack" or their custom order?

I wish I could just grab the tunic and an obi without all the rest but Ill keep the bits I don't use for future possibilities or to change up my look. Heck I might even just get the full kit.

Saw something similar on amazon from goldstitch and wondered how it compared?


Title: Re: A New Jedi Emerged on May 4th
Post by: For Tyeth on May 06, 2021, 07:18:27 PM
Hi there,

Yes you got a set made from Trivera material IIRC. I was tempted by Kenickys but then I saw a few customer review pictures and the material looked too shiny and smooth - a bit like bed sheets - so I decided against them even if I lost out on shipping savings. That was why I asked you if you could post a close up image of the weave on yours.

Regards Cossky (Cosplaysky is the brand and Cossky.com is their website name) I did purchase direct from them on the website. I was apprehensive of buying from a third party vendor thru Amazon as the product photos all seem to be taken from other sites etc. The Amazon stores also seem to sell the "same" outfit under different brand names such as "xingyueshop" but I wasn't sure they were the same. So I felt I had a bit of customer support buying direct if I needed it so I didn't mind paying that little bit more.

I'm afraid I don't know how US sizes would compare but I opted for "off the rack" sizing.

And one final point I just went on Cossky's site earlier and found they have an Anakin Clone Wars version with a pleather shoulder armour which actually doesn't look too bad.


Title: Re: A New Jedi Emerged on May 4th
Post by: mrg149 on May 07, 2021, 06:03:58 AM
My Jedi outfit from Kenicky's basically is made out of material for men's slacks. It looks ok but not that nice roughly natural texture...I selected that not knowing diddly about what fabrics work. So...That was on me and I can't fault Kenicky's for that as they gave me what I asked for....silly me and lesson learned! I haven't tried passing it through to see if it would meet Rebel Legion standards or not...at least not yet...That is the plan after I upgrade my belt pouches.

I'm happy to see the "rack" purchase worked out relatively well. I know CPS has an option for a more detailed tailoring for a $50 surcharge. If the rack worked for you...it can work for me too! I think I may splurge for the full outfit as I previously said it gives me some options to mess with.

I saw the Clone Wars Annakin outfit...pretty nice and there are a few others from some of the newer franchises that spark a few ideas as well. :-)

Thanks again, for your sharing!

Hi Zren, thanks very much but I'm afraid I have bad news about the shirt. Unfortunately I got the very last one, which is a bummer as I bought just the one to see what it was like then decided I wanted a second but found it had sold out. ASOS may get it back in stock but as fashions change I can't be sure.

And your Imperial Officer's outfit certainly looks authentic,  I can't see from the pictures you posted why it wouldn't get 501st or any trooping groups' approval.

Post by: For Tyeth on May 09, 2021, 07:55:12 PM
Hi there,

I don't have a pic of me wearing it on it's own but I did save the product image so I could post it on my site.

Here is the picture.
(https://ftsabersite.files.wordpress.com/2021/05/inner-tunic-asos-sized.jpg)

It is a real relaxed fit lounge top. It has the long sleeves that scrunch up and the neckline is round then there is a deep V cutaway that drops to the top of your sternum bone. Luckily it looks like an inner tunic and for me the colour matched with the CosplaySky parts perfectly.

I have been looking at getting a Han Solo style vest and some smuggler's gear as I have a few blasters around my flat now.  8)
But I'll just finish getting the final accessories for my Jedi first.

Along that path, remember Dockers? yeah, it's like a broken record :)  Well, I was at an outdoor masked SW food drive event this weekend and talked to a Han.  His pants were Dockers, and he'd had a seamstress sew a fancy strip along the outer seam so it matched Han's.  Looked good.

Hi Janx, I had neard that Ewan wore Dockers brand pants...I didn't know Han did! But I do know a little bit about the markings. They are known as Bloodstripes. Bloodstripes were an insignia to represent bravery in the Corellian military and to wear them the individual had to earn them. It is rumoured Han won his Bloodstripes whilst on a mission where he freed Chewbacca and saved his friend’s life. There were two tiers of Bloodstripe and Han was one of the few people in the galaxy to have won both (the other insignia consisted of yellow markings).

I think a smuggler/scoundrel outfit will be easier to put together, with the right jacket of course!

to clear up what I meant, a guy dressed as han, used modified Dockers as his pants.  I do not know about Harrison on film :) Did dockers exist in the 70s?

Maybe somebody could scrutinize photos and film for a difference, but until he told me, I didn't know.  The gun belt covers a could chunk of pocket region so the eye isn't drawn to the modern pants element.

For jedi, I'm sold on the idea because nobody's gonna see the top of the pants due to the tunic :)

Post by: For Tyeth on May 11, 2021, 02:40:17 PM
Hi Janx,

Haha! I don't think Dockers were around in the 70's but I have been wrong before. Form what I have found the pants Harrison wore were a lightweight denim jean that had a belt tong stay loop at the front zipper and riding seam at the back, plus  pintucks on the front of the legs.

Not sure if the Bloodstripes were a strip of fabric with the stripes embroidered/printed then stitched on or if they were just embroidered straight onto the jeans (more likely).

Helloooo Everybodies....

I haven't posted here for over 120 days apparently and I thought I'd best post a small update to my costume. It's nothing special or too fancy, I just added a new tunic set in the dark tan/green colour so I can mix and match when I feel like having a change. Again it is a CosplaySky set:

Hello Jedi sycophant....who said the eyes are edited?

WAIT! WAIT! NOOOOOOO! Don't worry LSG, I haven't turned....yet! If I did decide to become a Sith I'd need contact lenses and unfortunately I used to wear spectacles as a youngling and because my glasses protected my eyes I can't stand things on/touching my eyeballs now.

So for now I'll stick to being a Jedi...thanks for the kind comment....point incoming.

Peace is a lie....there is only......what's the next line again?

I haven't posted here for over 120 days apparently and I thought I'd best post a small update to my costume. It's nothing special or too fancy, I just added a new tunic set in the dark tan/green colour so I can mix and match when I feel like having a change. Again it is a CosplaySky set:

Looking great my friend!

And I COMPLETELY agree with LSG: while your Jedi robes look fantastic, your Sith eyes are incredibly compelling  :D

WELL deserved point!

Hello Dutch, yes I had a close encounter with the Darkside (or rather had some fun photo editing) but I had some more Blue Milk and Portion Bread and I think I'm back to my usual self now.

As I mention contact lenses and my eyeballs don't like each other so a Sith/Darkside cosplay may not be on the cards...also this Jedi one has cost me enough credits already!

Thanks anyway and I hope you're well, point incoming.

Good pics! I was just trying to see what hilt that is your holding... The Dark Sentential or Apprentice perhaps...

Hi MavRick, no fraid not and I had to purposely disguise the hilt. I wish I had a Sentinel but at the moment the cost of a sound saber and shipping + all the taxes and import fees when it reaches the UK is a bit much, meaning I have to buy my sabers from nearer to home.

Glad you like the pictures however, and so far I am still fending off the Darkside...that was just a 24hr virus type affliction I suffered with my eyes!
