Yeah, the tshirt wasn't cutting it =p the costume comes with a brown faux under tunic piece. I was tryin to match the tshirt with that... That little piece got buried though so all you saw was the tshirt. I'll find a better way to take care of all of that.
Tabbard adjustment also duly noted. I think my hutt like gut got in the way =p
Yeah if you figure it out can you do a close up of the tabbards? I'm having trouble with mine, same with the outer tunic. Can't get that proper shape at all. x.x Looks awesome though. Mine has more darker pants and whiter outer tunic, tabbards, and obi.

I sewed my tabs together both in front and in the back. That way they don't slide around at all. After I did this I didn't like the way the tails touched so I made small pleats in both front and back. The pleats moved the tabs out for a better look.
I also put a very small stitch on my shoulders right up at the base of the collar to attach the tabs to the shoulders. If you don't attach them to your shoulders they will CONSTANTLY fall off your shoulders while at events. It looks dumb to keep readjusting your tabbards. Looks like you're fixing your bra strap. Other options for shoulder fixes include snaps or small pieces of Velcro. I've even heard of some people using double sided tape.
All of the stitches for the tabbards and the added pleats will easily be hidden by your obi. To add the pleats, its much easier to have an accomplice pinch the fabric to get the desired look then pin them once in place. I stood in front of a wall mirror and my wife folded and pinched the tabbards making the pleats until I got the desire look. She then pinned them in place and added a small stitch. The entire job took about an hour.
For the outer and both inner tunic, I wrap them around my waist as tight as I can. Usually the obi is tight enough to keep them in place. They do tend to unravel though. One option is to cut a small hole in in your front pocket. This is done on high end suits and tuxedos. You can put your hands in your pockets, put your fingers through the small holes, and carefully grab the fabric of your inner tunic and work it back in place. At some point I may consider sewing in a small patch of Velcro mid to upper chest level to aid in keeping everything in place.
lkstarkiller: I wonder how long it will take to get the CF-LS ready. He just said he has a prototype.

scarecrow: He said he wanted to add a lot more to it so I wouldn't hold my breath.

lkstarkiller: Yea, I just watched the video for igniter 3. So that will be my graflex board.

scarecrow: I'm doing a Graflex with and I3 and Intelliblade, too. MB Chassis with a drop in 18650. I've got high hopes for that one.

Rogue Five: That's the exact same setup I'm planning for my Graflex also. Show us the way, scarecrow...show us the way.

scarecrow: You got it. I'll be starting a thread called Scarecrow's Workshop in the Dagobah section. It'll be there.

lkstarkiller: I can't believe it, usps delivered my Roman mk1 to someone else. I really hope he insures his packages for the full price. I can't afford to lose $400

lkstarkiller: I am livid right now..... I don't know if I will be able to sleep tonight.

scarecrow: That happened to me over Thanksgiving and my neighbor brought it over. You still might get it.
Dec 14, 2017 3:50:26 GMT -5
lkstarkiller: I really hope so. It said it was delivered on the 12th though and I have been home the last two days. You figure if someone else got it they would have dropped it off to me today.

scarecrow: My neighbor was out of town and it sat on his doorstep for five days. I thought for sure it was stolen.

ARKM: Dang! I hope you get your saber.
Dec 14, 2017 4:26:15 GMT -5
Rogue Five: This has happened to me before and coincidentally (or maybe not?) it was also a Roman's MK1 I was expecting. Tracking showed it as delivered but it wasn't. I decided to wait another day before contacting the post office and sure enough it arrived.
Dec 14, 2017 4:26:45 GMT -5
Rogue Five: It's happened a couple of times with Amazon too where tracking says "delivered" but the package shows up the next day.
Dec 14, 2017 4:28:59 GMT -5
lkstarkiller: It doesn't, it just says delivered front porch december 12th
Dec 14, 2017 4:33:18 GMT -5
scarecrow: Call the local post office and they can do something call a geo trace. That allows them to pinpoint the address it was delivered to.
Dec 14, 2017 4:34:21 GMT -5
lkstarkiller: I'll have to do it in the morning since its 3:40 am. I probably won't sleep at all so I will go when they open.
Dec 14, 2017 4:37:52 GMT -5
Rogue Five: I think it'll be in your mailbox tomorrow but still best to make the PO aware of the situation right away in case your package was indeed lost. Really though, this happens more often than you think. It'll be there tomorrow.
