    Just Google "star wars costumes" or "anakin costume" or obi-wan costume" etc and you'll find some awesome fan sites dedicated to making Star Wars costumes from all the movies. They've got loads of photos, and some have detailed patterns as well. I'm using one website to make an Obi-Wan costume for an upcoming birthday party.

    Thanks Mububban, Im the friend that is looking for Qui-gon's Costume. (Duh, lol), I guess that we just have been looking for so long and cant find detailed patterns, just basic ones that we cant really do anything with. Thanks for the help

    Have you seen the Visual Guide books? They've got great full page detailed photos of the actors in costume. I borrowed a friend's ROTS book for reference photos for Obi-Wan, which is what I'm basing my jedi outfit on, including the belt. Pop into a library or bookstore and have a flick through one.

    If you can find someone who has the Dressing a Galaxy special edition (NOT the regular edition the 300 dollar 2500 limited set one), look at that. It is a really amazing resource. Unfortunately, my copy is six hours away, so I can't upload any pics.

    My girlfriend just finished my Obi-Wan costume last night. Not 100% movie authentic, but I don't care as the pants are also going to be used for my sword fighting group so they'r ebaggier than Obi-Wan's. And I wasn't about to spend $200 on a pair of knee high leather boots either! But the brown undershirt and the cream coloured tunic and belt sash and tabards look pretty cool. Now I just need to make the belt this week in readiness for this Saturday's Star Wars party! Expect a full report with photos after that.

    And it was all made from looking at the movies, and some very basic patterns from the net.

    well I have an Anakin ep III costume. But it ain't also movie accurate. Colour is different darker. and the fabric is similar, but still different. I did get those expensive boots, they are pretty old now.
