My nephews had asked me awhile ago to make them Jedi costumes. There was a big entertainment expo/comicon that they wanted to go to so I completed their costumes for them to wear for the event. They were both excited about their costumes and have already requested that I make them another.. I'm not sure how much time I actually spent on the costumes but I did an all-nighter the night before the comicon.

 If you have any questions about the construction feel free to ask me. May the force be with you!

Amazing job.  I especially like the Obi Wan Kenobi costume.  Is the top constructed of separate pieces or are they joined together in some way?

Both of your nephews look really happy and really proud of their costumes.

Thanks everyone. The comicon was in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The Obi wan's Is in two parts. I used a bathrobe pattern but shortened the length, for the tabards I made my own pattern. I made the belts and accessories. I did lots of research on the costumes to try to made them as close as possible. Thanks for your comments!
