Old Republic Jedi Robes: Almost Complete!

   Can I just say how much I love Star Wars? I've been a fan even before the prequels, before The Clone Wars cartoons, before it was hyper-uber-commerziallized. Back in the day when I used to be a gmrgrrl (gamer girl for you n00bs), Star Wars games were all I played. 

  Jedi Academy, Battlefront, Jedi Outcast, Rogue Squadron, Rebel Assault 2, Dark Forces... 

But the best of all? 

Knights of the Old Republic. 

  Period. It's like, still the best game. The second one is okay too, but I think the first one is hard to beat in terms of story, pacing, characters- ahh. It's like bliss whenever I turn it on nowadays. (The best part about the game was Carth Onasi... one of my longest crushes. I explain on my other blog, in case you're interested.) 

  Anyway, the game is set 4,000 years BBY (Before the Battle of Yavin... or Episode IV for you n00bs), so the Jedi robes are considerably different than they are in the initial films. I have spoken about them before in previous posts (here and here, most notably), but once you see the pictures below you'll see what I'm talking about. 

  So without further adieu- me IN my almost completed robes!

Let me just say that I felt like a BOSS wearing them.

 What's missing? Well, I plan on making some actual pants for starters. Because as we all know, leggings aren't pants. (At least I hope you knew that...) Then, I hope to obtain an awesome belt (thinking about this one) and, eventually, to craft an outer robe. A big billowing one.

Until my costume is complete.... 

May the force be with you all!

  Like these robes? Want your own? Prefer a different era or style? Just drop me a line... I love working with custom orders!

  1. May I just say that we SHOULD all know leggings aren't really pants. Unfortunately, some people have yet to realize this.
    The robe is awesome too. My brother has been after me to make one for him.
