Lady Revan, great video! That is exactly what I'd love to do with my saber and costume. It looks like a ton of fun.

Also those costumes look perfect. Thanks so much for sharing. Smiley

Thanks! I’m glad I could help out Cheesy if you want really good fabric, the ones for Far Far Away Outfitters that aren’t marked as “microfiber” are great texture and weight. I love the “natural” but that one is hand wash only, sadly Sad I think my next one from them I’m going to get all Natural pieces and hand dye though. Also a heads up, their Obis are HUGE... like 8 feet huge, so you’ll likely have to cut it.

Tx Tuff, Our cosplays are so close it is scary.
Yeah I noticed that before. I have a grey obi and pants. Also have a grey robe too but it gets pretty warm.

I love FFAO. Most of my stuff comes from them.

I went with the natural/white and charcoal. I really wanted something with color, but I just couldn't commit. As you mentioned, any red/orange hues were out b/c Sith. Then I was thinking purple, but with my consular saber I felt it would I look too much like a Joker Jedi. And I want to get an amethyst saber next, so if I went with green I'd end up with the same problem.

So in the end... charcoal matches everything.  Smiley

I plan to get the arm wraps and the belt to match. Unfortunately, they're out of stock for the pouches. I'm planning to use Saso Is-kor's tutorial to make my own. Smiley

You're an inspiration for diy!

Hi. I'm looking to get a Jedi themed costume/cos play just for fun. I'm not looking to win any contests or anything like that... Just something to wear to a comic con and very clearly identify myself as a Jedi. For the record, I've never been to a comic con or done any sort of cos play.

I've kind of narrowed it down to two different ideas, but I'm open to other suggestions:

The first one is sleeveless, which is much more my style but I worry it's not Jedi enough.

The second one is more Jedi looking, but also I imagine will be much, much hotter and also seems less feminine.

Either way I'll likely add this utility belt.

What do you all think? Any thoughts on color? Like I said, there may be something else out there, too. Feel free to offer suggestions!
Although the price is nice, if I'm not mistaken, that is the belt I currently have (only the black version), and it's not good at it's job. Sad

I'm not sure I get what you mean... Does it not hold the hilt or does it slide off or maybe something else?

Good question. My wife is looking at an outfit from FFAO (the no sleeve one) and belts are a topic now, FFAO's looks simpler and not a fan of pleather.

I expect these outfits to be worn with an obi, so the belt shouldn't be responsibile for preventing a core breach, just holding a light saber and pouch, right?

If you want a sturdy belt that will hold some items, but don't want to splurge on a full-grade rigger's belt, try this: https://www.amazon.com/Spec-Ops-Brand-Better-Coyote-Regular/dp/B004WA8MC2/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_1?keywords=spec-ops%2Bbetter%2Bbdu%2Bbelt%2Bcoyote%2Bbrown&qid=1558375818&s=gateway&sr=8-1-fkmrnull&th=1&psc=1

I have several of the black ones, in various sizes (thanks, life, for the size changes) and widths.  They're sturdy, they are secure, and if you're of a mind to crank down on them, the buckle will hold without slipping.

I'm saying that it doesn't function well as a utility belt. However, if you don't plan on clipping anything heavier than an ounce, you should be alright.
