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.

Thanks, Darth Logos. Very helpful info.

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!

OMG, that's too cool! I'm thrilled that someone else is going to try their hand at it. Definitely post up anything and everything to do with your costume, this has pretty much become your costume progress thread and we'll all be waiting eagerly to see how it turns out!

"Remember what I told you about seeking after conflict, Padawan. We shouldn't go into this assignment with that mentality," Plo Koon said quietly.
     “I get it, Plo. But if I were to put odds on us brandishing our lightsabers by rotation’s end… well... you probably don’t want to know,” Saso teased back. Plo chuckled as the turbolift slowed and within moments they were heading for the Temple hangars.

I'm also going to have to try my natural tunic set but with my grey inner tunic sometime, thanks for the inspiration Tongue I'm also then thinking my black robe, boots, and belt would go perfect with that set with the grey inner tunic. I tried one of their inner tunics before though and I totally didn't like how it felt so I got one from Jedi Closet I think is what they're called also on Etsy. Will be cool to see your new robe set though for sure =]

Couldn't have said it better myself, Saso^^

That ensemble sounds fantastic, Zren!  I'd love to see pics if/when you get them  Smiley

I've been wanting to get my wife some tunics and robes as well.  Would you recommend The Jedi Closet for the full ensemble, LR?  And--once again  Grin--if you have pics, I'd be interested in seeing them^^

My wife looked at FFAO and Jedi Closet (thanks to Revan and Jillian for mentioning those Etsy stores).

FFAO only had the colors she wanted in micro-fiber (+texas=too hot).  But they took measurements and sounds like they make to order.

She liked the designs at JC, but they tend to be monochromatic outfits (4 pieces, all same color) and based on a 6' male model.  We're not sure if JC will do custom sizes or colors or not.

We're curious what your experience is/will be, so keep us posted.

Eileen at Jedi Closet does custom color orders, so if you communicate with her what you're looking for, I'm sure she can help Smiley I have a friend currently getting some tabards and an undertunic in a shade of Olive Drab from JC for her Saber Guild Jedi. Eileen's custom pieces (Jedi closet) also tend to fit your measurements more closely than FFAO

My pleasure! She uses great fabrics too, and machine washable! She's also worked with the 501st, Rebel Legion, and Saber Guild, so she's used to making costumes that fit their quality standards as well.

I had zero experience with sewing and I’ve made the following 4 costumes (robes, tunics, belts, capes) all in the last two weeks. Be patient, watch YouTube videos, and start with cheap “throw away” material to build confidence. After two attempts I was able to make the Jedi Knight costume pictured. Then I moved on to the grey Jedi, Dooku, and Palpatine inspired costumes. It’s amazing what you can do with some motivation and imagination!!

Outstanding work DJ!  Even more impressive given that you did it yourself (there's no way that I could've made my robe&tunics  Wink).

Which do you prefer: Light or Dark points?
