Made some improvements to my Anakin costume for Halloween this year:
I did some weathering to the boots, which made them look a whole lot better. They actually look like real, worn leather now. I also did a bit of research and got some screen accurate pants. I now have the correct, blue light saber.
A friend of mine had sent me an old Jedi robe that he no longer wanted, and I decided to throw together a quick costume for Halloween this year:
It’s not screen accurate, but it was a fun, quick build.
I basically sewed up a new tunic, the “leather” shoulder things, and the cummerbund. I then bought the glove, the belt, and some crazy contacts to give me the sith eyes. I used my old Darth Vader light saber (which is incorrect) and my Renaissance boots (completely wrong style) and pants (wrong style & color).
Surprisingly, a lot of people knew who I was supposed to be. Maybe I’ll try and improve on it and make it more accurate for next year?
