Obi-wan Kenobi

(episode 2)

Obi-wan Kenobi - OOAK 12" customized  doll / figure


Description From all male population of SW I prefer Jedi master Kenobi. I apologize to all fans of Luke and Anakin.

I wanted to have a figure of Obi-wan, but alas! although the one produced by Hasbro had a nice head, it was placed on a "steroid  monster with  mutton-fists" body.
 The  elderly, although good looking Obi-wan by Sideshow Collectibles, with all the postal charges was too expensive for me. So I bought the second-hand figure by Hasbro and put this handsome, repainted head on a body of "Kick-o-mania" footbalist by Revell. I think he doesn't look bad. I tried also to do the functional lightsaber - here I failed :-( , for now - the lightsaber he holds is also by Hasbro.

Five-part costume for a 12" male doll.
I would like to thank Padawan's Guide, Obi-Wan's Jedi Academy
a Czech Star Wars Universe for all pictures, descriptions and tutorials.  
  • The inner and outer tunics have  the kimono-like collar and set-in sleeves. The sleeves of inner tunic are tight-fitting, the outer tunic has the sleeves bell-shaped and lined.

  • The tabard consists of a wide sash (obi-belt) and two strips of fabric that come across the shoulders and tuck under the obi in the front. They attached to the ends of the obi, which fastens back with little snaps.

  • The pants are a normal piece of clothing, with a fly.

  • The robe is made from 2 pieces, there are not shoulder, nor sleeve seams - there is only a seam up the back, hidden in a box pleat. The deep hood is cut in two pieces, gathered at the neck and the connection with the robe id hidden under bias stripe.

  • To the costume belong  leather boots,  front laced up. The lacings then are hidden under overlapping panels, that are attached with four wire buckles on the inner sides of legs. The movie boots hadn't any buckles, but this was the only way I figured out to make the boots removable. Except the "toe" and the stripes all parts were lined with a dark brown habotai. The inner seams were machine sewn, the backstitch is done by hand. The soles are sculpted from two-part epoxy putty and painted dark brown.

    On the leather belt are 3 pouches (there were used blocks of Fimo, covered with a brown leather), food capsules from epoxy putty and the buckle, sculpted from the ep. putty and a fine wire, then silver-pleated and covered with an acryllic varnish
Used materials
  • For the both tunics and the tabard I used a fine crinkled , dyeable fabric, which looked like a silk, but burned very easily. An acetate or acryllic, maybe.
  • The trousers are from a bourette.
  • For the cloak I used a home-dyed cotton flannel.
