So as the title says, I'm starting on a new costume. Half way done so far. I surprisingly found a mock turtleneck long sleeve shirt at Wal Mart and decided to get it. I'm doing my black and grey theme costume. Doing kind of a mix of gens as well, OT and PT styles. What do you guys think so far? I'll be getting the tabbards and obi made of course and a belt of some kind from Corellian Imports. What belt color you guys think I should go for? The tabbards and obi are going to be a medium grey so. It is a Jedi costume as well, just going for something edgy a bit. Might also go without a robe this time but I'll still be recognized as a Jedi. I know some of you guys go without a robe sometimes so.

I'd go very dark to black for the tabs and Obi. Same with the belt. Kind of like the luke ROTJ. I'm not a big fan of the silvery I grey. Is this costume just for fun or were you planning to join the RL? The RL doesn't allow black for Jedi garb unless you're going to do a Luke ROTJ.
We have a member here that makes belts. Not sure of his prices. Belt making is actually quite easy. I've made about six belts so far. I could walk you through the belt build. They cost about $80 or so in parts.
Agree with luke on the belts. It's not that hard. If you decide to do it, several of us here have made them and can give you ideas of parts to look for. In rebel legion you can get away with black tunics and pants for prequel trilogy jedi, but thats it.
Grab a better picture definitely. I went to do some leatherworking myself, and if you have a tandy leather around you, you are better off buying online (it's cheaper). Also, as any hobby buying the tools are the first most expensive bit. Once you have them, leatherworking is an awesome thing.
