Looking to put together a Generic Jedi costume that will pass RL standards and not break the bank. Any recommendations? I could probably DIY most. So iI'd really only need tunics, tabards, Obi and cloak.

If you have sewing skills, you can find cheaper prices for good textured/weighted fabric at small local fabric shops as opposed to big chains like JoAnn’s I got canvas for my Star Forge Robes for $4.50 a yard that way. I recommend getting sew-in Velcro for closing the Obi and keeping tabards in place. Cloak/robe is usually optional and would be the most difficult part if you chose to make. You’ll need a tunic, undertunic, tabards, and obi for fabric parts, and a belt, pouches, and boots for leather or leather-like. I’m not a part of Rebel Legion so I don’t know their specific standards for generic Jedi, but you may want to check their forumsnd website for info on approvable style, colors, and fabrics. Smiley I think the Saber Guild restrictions are a bit stricter, but much of the info on the required pieces is the same as far as I am aware (main differences in the two have to do with approvable colors).

Amazon will sell you one for under $60.

Whether it breaks your wallet is a different story.

The issue is that it probably won't be Rebel Legion approvable since that's what they're specifically looking for. Many of the ones you can buy on Amazon for that price are a thin polyester fabric that won't be approved by the costuming clubs

Yeah... approvable and cheap do not go together.

DIY-ing is definitely your best bet if you want to save money. Especially if you have the skills.

Yup! Like I said, at small fabric stores you can probably get approvable fabric for between $2-$5 a yard. You shouldn't need more than about 4 yards depending on the fabric width. Approvable pants you can usually find premade relatively easily.

I think RL will approve regular khakis, as long as no pockets are visible once the robes are on.

You might have a Look at Far Far Away Outfitters then. They're relatively affordably priced and usually approvable. My approved Generic Jedi is from there.

I LOVE Jedi closet and Eileen is excellent. Her stuff WILL run you higher than Far Far Away, but it’s significantly higher quality and the initial for will be better without alteration. FFA, you’re going to have to alter at least the obi and possibly the tabards too after you get them.

I did not think Rebel Legion when I saw the acronym.  Real Life came to mind.

I would get in contact with Rebel Legion and find out if FarFarAwayOutfitters meets their standards. FFAO is an Etsy shop, and their wares won't break the bank.

Saber Guild is a little stricter than RL and most of FFAO’s stuff is approvable, but double checking with your local squad leaders is always best. There’s nothing worse than to buy a costume piece specifically for a club costume and then have it not meet standards. Only thing that might be an issue that I can tell is the “microfiber” fabrics (the colored ones) all of their neutral colors are full texture though, and if you’re concerned about texture but still want color you can always get the white or cream and dye  it yourself

side question: what's the deal with these clubs?  I don't know much about them other than the 501st gets on stage during Wierd Al's encore and I hear the clubs are as picky about costumes as the SCA is about Garb.
