The final Jedi outfit. (Warning, massive picspam)


So here's my current Jedi poster-boy, Lucas.  A 17" Imperium Park Phin doll, customised and repainted by Dr Krow.   By the bye,  He's not named after George Lucas, I just happen to like the name, so it seemed appropriate to pick him for the Jedi outfit. ... That, and my other three boys are off being customised. ^^

The tea dyeing worked well. The clothing looks humble and well worn.  Jedi have a semi-Samurai and semi-monastic feel, I always think.




I tried him in his alternative wig. I think it needs a good restyling but I can't face it.  I keep going back to the fur wig, it's so him.



The whole look without the robe.  I managed to work the straps on his boots so that the line between the boot-tops and the actual gaiters isn't obvious. I had to use different buckles, but that's okay.  I may be picky, but when one simply can't obtain the exact bits and pieces one must improvise.


And the robe. Not technically accurate because of the contrast lining, but I simply couldn't help myself.





Something wicked this way comes....


Lightsabre at the ready. (That's British for lightsaber.) I do like these chopsticks, but the ends of the 'light beam' taper to a point.  I need to find a way to remove the current blue plastic and replace it with some slightly better perspex rod that I have.



These are not the droids you seek....


You don't want to sell me death sticks.



You want to go home and rethink your life.



I'm all Jedi'd out now.   Maybe something for the girls next.  After a big project like this, I find myself totally at a loose end and at a loss for something to sew.

I've even cleaned the oven. :O
