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
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
- 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
- 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
