the price is just crazy for fabric clothing. but then, in no expert.Some of the stuff looks decent but some of it looks like **** too. That neck seal is faux leather and the shape seems quite a bit off. Where are the gloves picture? They are faux leather as well. Also, no boots? And what's with the pants and the suspenders? Also, as far as the pricing goes I'm going to have probably 2000 into mine total with all the pieces which is far far less than what they want that doesn't include boots or lightsaber.
That price is with the helmet too. Tier 1 for outfit without the helmet is 2k which is still a lot.They're crazy for asking that much IMO... 2,635 for Tier 1.... 3,100 'MSRP'... Soft goods costing more than any of their full armors cost? God this is making me dread the F/O Trooper cost already..
You're looking at an accurate reproduction of the production made costume. The fabrics are custom made, coated in the same way they were done for the film (which, by the way, no one has figured out yet how to do properly). The pants have suspenders, just like the film costume did. The base layer has a mesh panel to allow for cooling, and to prevent the wearer from suffering heat stroke. Many film production costumes comprised of multiple layers do this (See: Captain America: Civil War).
Also keep in mind, this is a prototype on a mannequin. Some of the pieces won't look right. The neck seal seems to be the piece everyone is pointing out the most, but that is how the neck seal was constructed.
You will not be able to make a more screen accurate costume using materials as accurate as these for less.
