Obi-Wan Kenobi

Character: Obi-Wan Kenobi
From: Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
Made: 1999

I didn't actually make this costume; my mother did. It was my very first Star Wars costume. Mom made it for me back in the fall of 1999, after I begged her for it and sent her lots of links on how to make a Jedi costume. Of course, back then it never occurred to me that I could design a custom Jedi, so I asked for Obi-Wan's outfit. Mom did an awesome job and I *loved* it. I haven't worn it much since I started making my own costumes, although I did sketch a female Jedi costume concept that would be fun to make someday.
