Qui-Gon Jinn and
Obiwan Kenobi, a master and a padawan that I greatly admire.
"It is a hard life..." and a padawan has much to learn
to prepare for his/her destiny.
When I Saw The Phantom Menace and fell in love with the Jedi
garb I wanted to make some of my own. After searching the web
I realized that there was little information about making your
own Jedi garb. I started talking with other fans who also wanted
to make their own Jedi garb and in time I collected a lot of
great information. I decided to make this page and post the information
that I came across so that others with an interest in Jedi costuming
could benefit. That is the goal and purpose of this page. I feel
that I have reached that goal. I want to thank everyone who contributed
and helped to make this page possible and also thank everyone
for all of the pics that they have sent to me of the garb they
made assisted in part by this page. I've learned much and had
a lot of fun along the way. Take care and MTFBWY!
Where did I get my information?
The info presented here is the result of
many fans who have watched, studied, obsessed, and discussed
the costumes with other fans. I have also benefited from the
information provided by professional costumers who have researched
the costumes for clients. The info here is as accurate as observation,
research and experience will allow. A special thanks to Rich
Fairbrother (Mookie), MaulWalker, WiliQueen, Ping, Obiwannabe,
JK2 Costumers, Got Maul and QuiGonSean, Capt'n Ron, Claude, MJF
and everyone else who agonized over, obsessed about, and sweated
the costume details.
Update: Due to the changes
in web space provider services I have found it necessary to streamline
and reduce the size of my web page. There are many wonderful
places on the web that focus on props and other areas of SW costuming.
Rather than reinvent the wheel, I'll just focus on Jedi garb
and also invite you to visit the Rebel
Legion ! I am proud
to be a member of the Rebel Legion and there you will find many
of the people who contributed the information found here at my
Please remember that when
it comes to costuming and sewing I am most definitely a padawan
learner and by no means a professional but I have tried to present
the info here as accurately and as coherently as possible. When
using the patterns here, remember to measure carefully and use
common sense since there will always be a certain amount of individualized
