Fabrics for Kylo Ren

Post by KyloZen » 29 Dec 2016, 23:33

Hi!

Still working with the Kylo-costume and has a few question about the tunics and sleeves.
1) Is the https://www.cosplayfabricsinternational ... -customers fabrics 501st approved for Kylo's outer tunics, Hood and shawl?

2) the canvas weave described on the official SW-page for his inner tunic and sleeves is tricky to find with the right size of threads per centimeter. Anyone with a Good tip?

3) what sort of material are the trousers made of? Is it coated denim?

4) Imperial boots unfortunately don't do boots in my size. Are the corsair kids boots 501st approved? Are there better boots in size EUR 40?

Again, grateful for all tips I can get!

Mat the Force be with you!

1) Yes, it's probably the most accurate you can find
2) Don't get the super-heavy stuff, but try to find something that's still a little coarse. Look at reference photos and go to a local fabrics store and buy the closest you can find (within reason, ofc)
3) Yes, it's coated denim. Plain and a pretty wide fit.
4) Their site isn't open atm, so I can't check it, but don't they do a size 41? If they do, you could put a sole in, and it'll fit you fine if you're normally a size 39-40. Their sizes also run a bit small btw. Crow Props on fb also makes decent boots, but I don't know what sizes he makes. He's a bit more hands-on (my impression), so he can probably make a wider range of sizes than IB can.

Again I must thank you for answering so fast and being so helpful!
Outer Robe fabric is ordered. :-)
You posted a great picture of the sleeves/inner tunic fabric that you ordered from China (?) Would you mind telling me where you ordered it from?

That fabric didn't work out too well, and I don't think it's available anymore. It is a bit too fine and I am in fact planning on redoing them :-P So I wouldn't recommend it! Black canvas that is not too coarse is plenty accurate
