    Just my own guess, but I'd guess the pin tucked portion would be considered his midcoat. I'm basing that mostly off of the action figure, and I believe a typical midcoat has sleeves. If that is the case, I'm almost certain that it is constructed of black merino wool because those sleeves bear a striking resemblance to merino.

    I could be wrong, but this is my best guess.

    I'm guessing the under tunic is worn as either a shirt, or could be the piece you have marked as the midcoat.

    Some noir merino

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure we haven't seen the under tunic. Whether the sleeves are (as I assume) part of it or not, the layer you've pointed to in green has the same folds as the sleeves. You can see it on the leaked action figure prototype:

    And peaking out of the side split in the top coat during the first teaser:

    So,

    Where are we at on inner fabric/sleeve fabric at this point? Just trying to sum up for myself and others who might be reading!

    Nice grab on the slits. I was wavering on whether the back had been split. But MasterEdi said that when he saw it it appeared to be split and folds in on itself, so these shots are great confirmation of that.

    So at this point, I think it's probably safe to assume the overcoat is constructed of 4 main panels, not 3.

    That's the same shot that had me 100% sure there was not slit in the back. It's not the first time I've been wrong though.

    Ahh, you must be Lawnknome's girlfriend. :) You don't have to be a 501st member to participate in that thread over there, just need to register on the site. And to clarify that costume judging comment by LDR. For basic 501st approval you can often time use "like kind materials", over there right now we're also trying to go for the top notch screen accuracy as the top tier what people can shoot for to develop the screen accurate reference, and then the other lower tiers will be flushed out afterwards.

    I'm looking forward to when people will be able to partially suit up. Very exciting! :thumbsup

    Oh ok. Yeah, that onyx is quite dark. I'll post a handful of pictures once my noir comes in.

    For you guys on the bleeding edge of the costume development here I'd still venture to say that it will impossible to get every piece of the costume perfect on this first go around. Though we saw the actual costume for real in advance of the movie which is unheard of, there's still so much that you cannot see. Don't get discouraged if you have to (=want to) change something when the actual movie comes out and we can see better how the costume interacts with movement and get some better shots of the pants, midcoat and under tunic etc. It will still be amazing to be able to go to events prior to the launch with a costume that for the average fan looks totally perfect. :D

    I can say with complete certainty that merino is not the correct weave for the sleeves. The weave is far too refined and the threads are too fine to match the pattern.

    That said, holy crap this is beautiful fabric! I'm definitely making something nice out of this stuff.

    I'll try and snap some. The company is wonderful. I got my fabric in quick and they shipped immediately.

    I'm trying to meet some deadlines on 2 costumes for this week, so I might be a little late on getting the pictures, but I promise I'll do my best to make time and break out the camera.

    I'm sure you have seen these, but I'm just trying to contribute, I'd like to get in on buying a costume when this all gets figured out. Thank you hope these help.

    What fabric is the blanket made of? The pattern does look like a nice match. Did you post a link to it already? If so, I will go back and read. I used to be a 501st member and now my 17y/o son wants a Kylo Ren costume and it's almost like the "old" days when I used to try to figure out how to make all of my Star Wars costumes. :)

    I found the other thread and grabbed up both last queen and all 4 twin blankets. You saved me a trip to the garment district trying to hunt down something like this. Thank you so very much!! :)

    Looking at the new Vanity Fair pics it appears that the pants also have pleating on them?

    I always buy extra, just in case and considering the fact that I am dying this, I'm also taking into account possible shrinkage. However if enough is leftover for someone else to use, I will gladly sell it.

    Oh phew! I've been staring at it for hours. The piping on the edge of the pleating really makes it look like part of the pants. Thanks for clearing that up!

    What kind of body type are you making this for? I'm trying to get an idea of how much fabric I would need for the outer coat and hood. Are you doubling the fabric up for any parts, such as the hood?

    So here are the pictures as I accidentally promised the other thread. Merino is such a cool fabric. The weight and feel of the fabric is soft and midweight. It has a bit of stretch, but not a ton, and it drapes nicely on whatever you put it on.

    This seems to be great fabric for mid coat. I think sleeves are made from this fabric.
