My son is very much a Star Wars kid- he has been Luke Skywalker and Boba Fett in past years. This year he wanted to be Starkiller/Galen Marek from The Force Unleashed video game. I ordered him karate pants online, then found a shirt that looked right in the thrift store. The shirt was way too big, so I re-sized it. I then took a cream colored gauze and dyed it grey to use for the arm and leg wraps. He wore his bogs boots, which was helpful since it snowed the day of Halloween and we had a few inches on the ground. I made his robe from black flannel, the picture online of Starkiller makes the robe look like it is one piece, but with my guy being so small I had to make a few adjustments, the buckles are placed at a slant and are just large hook and eye closures. The original Starkiller costume also has a ton of belts- I made mine by cutting a thrift store belt and punching a new hole to fit my son, I then used E6000 to glue the buckles on to the belt in the front, it buckles in the back so all you can see are the buckles I made from craft foam and paint. I didn't even bother with the other belts, one was enough. My son is all of three feet tall and super skinny, so the leg belt would have been necklace sized for an adult  Wink  I also glued the black fabric scrap onto the belt to mimic the one Starkiller wears.
