For this Halloween, my brave boyfriend allowed me to make him a costume, without telling him what it was.

He's a huge Star Wars fan, so I made him an Anakin Skywalker costume, from Episode III. After a month and a half of work, three restarts on the outer tunic, almost every bolt of brown fabric Joann's has, and no opportunity to try it on a real person, I *finally* gave it to him this past weekend. It fit! And even more importantly, he loved it!

With the cape:

Without the cape:

And a close-up.


This is a photo that I worked off of:

I used a pattern for the cloak, tabards, and inner tunic, but made up my own outer tunic and pants patterns. The boots and thin outer belt were purchased, but everything else was made. Oh, and the lightsaber came from his personal collection.  Wink

Let me know what you think!

That is SO amazing! My roommates and I actually went to this sci-fi/fantasy convention this past weekend and we saw a similar costume but yours is so much better! Your boyfriend's a superlucky guy  Smiley
