PostSubject: Cosplay Thread!   Thu Nov 10, 2011 4:03 pm

I've been going to Emerald City Comic Con for 2 years now, and I always cosplay. This is my first attempt



It should be pretty obvious who I am going as, if you have read a lot of EU. This last year I went with the same costume, but blue face paint and black hair dye for Thrawn and got a lot of people to recognize me. I always have a blast, but this year I'm thinking I'm gonna go for a change of pace and go Jedi based on a few instructional videos I have seen.

Anyone cosplay as a Jedi and have tips or tricks to share?

What kind of Jedi costume are you looking for? The pure cloth style from the movies?
Or do you want an armor / suit like the ones from SW : TOR?

If you want one from the game I can help you a little.
I've never made a cloth costume though, so I can't really help much there. =/

Cloth costume to start, I found a youtube video that shows a really simple way to make one and it looks pretty good. Also found a youtube video on how to build a lightsaber. Probably going to try and get this made for New Years.

I think the biggest thing is whether or not I have to make a robe from scratch or if there is a suitable robe I can find online and make minimal alterations. That and boots, its always the boots.

Well. The only thing I can do to help you then is to recommend Jedi-Robe if you're looking for buying any parts. it's where I bought my jedi robe. The quality is just amazing. ^_^

Awesome costume! I keep asking myself... "As a Star Wars fan, why do I not yet have a Jedi Robe?!" When I have time to learn to follow patterns, I'll have one.

Be sure to show off the lightsaber too! Very Happy

Will do, I'm also wearing it to work on the 30th (I convinced my boss to do a costume day for the kids!) and the 31st, the AFK Tavern, local gamer bar, is doing a New Years party. Its Doctor Who themed, but they say you can do any cosplay you want!
