Kylo Walker

#1 Post by 5573 » 05 Dec 2015, 21:08

Hi all,

After a bit of a miserable time, Åsa and I decided to cheer me up by making a new costume for TFA. I chose to go for Kylo Ren as I didn't have the skills / money to get a stormtrooper and none of the other costumes I have seen so far really grabbed me but a TFA X-Wing Pilot might be nice. Anyway, we've been working for a while now and it's starting to come together...

Gloves: Bought from troperbay
Image

Under tunic: Homemade by the ever amazing Mrs Walker :) It is actually two separate parts, a very simple base layer that holds the arms on then like a long waistcoat with the body pleats.
Front:

From an angle:

Shoulder details inc the correct overlap between the body pleats and the arm pleats:

Rear:

We have also made a start on the mid-tunic. So far we have only got the top half done as we hadn't counted on needing this (we started before the CRL was done) and have not bought enough material. The first attempt was the correct general shape but a bit too wide as you cansee below. Åsa is busy on the sewing machine right now taking it in a little...

Lightsabre: A so far unmodified FX sabre. I will probably do the hot glue mod later but I've got bigger things to do first.

To do:
Belt: Waiting on leather to arrive to make my own. Should come on Monday. Belt details bought:
Image

Boots: Should be on the way from Imperial Boots. If not then I have a pair of boots as a back-up for the TFA premier.
Image
Image

Helmet: On it's way from My Wicked Armor:
Image

Outer robe: We've got material. It's not perfect but it's close enough for the CRL :)

Neck seal: Need to get some fake leather. Will be bought on Monday.

Did I miss anything?

If you know what you are talking about then, please, give constructive feedback on what you see so far :)

Thx

More progress today.

The skirts are cut out and sewn. Note that the bottom is just pinned in place for now.

The almost finished mid-tunic:

A not completely successful attempt to show the skirts and how they hang:

Slightly better light (but not much):
Image

In other news, the leather arrived so I will try and get the belt started tomorrow.

Still waiting on the helmet (it's in the post) and the boots (no news from Imperial Boots :()

Got Wed, Thurs and Fri night, all day Sat and Sun and then Mon night to get this finished.

No panic!

Åsa is now hard at work at the outer robe. Obviously I'm biased but I Love how it is turning out...

Top half of the front (only pinned in place):

Rear including skirts (currently too long on purpose):

Under the arm (only pinned in place):

And some good news is that my helmet has cleared customs. It should make it by Tuesday :)

Yes! pleated undertunic ftw :D
Did you get the coated Jeans/pants?

Looking good so far, will be better to get the full picture when things are sewn and fitted (and all details are aboard) but looking good so far :)

I've made a pair of waxed jeans but I may need to get something shinier before full approval. Depends on how my weekend waxing comes out. Going to do another coat of wax and iron it in.

Almost finished the outer robe :) The shoulders need to be shaped a little more then sewn and the whole thing needs to be cut to the right length. Won't do that till the Imperial Boots arrive.

Not the best photos but, once again, taking photos of all black costumes in the dark is not the greatest idea :)
