Re: Received IB robes today

Pretty close. I mean, you can look at screen shots of the movie or even other members here to get an idea of how close. The lighting will make a difference as well, since like you said, they're 2 different materials... Worst case scenario, you can always repaint. I don't know much about the Korbanth...

Re: Received IB robes today

Awesome! Just remember, you'll still need to hem both the robes (they come long)!

I have the Rubie's helmet, which is nice, but heavy. There are a few that do ABS buckets that are lighter, but I haven't seen any in person myself, so can't say how good they look... Good luck!

Re: Received IB robes today

Yes. What I wrote is exactly how mine were made from them.

Re: Received IB robes today

Yes, the inner lining of the outer robe is the same color as the inner robes (a wine color). The outer part is red. They are two separate fabrics/pieces that come sewed together at the neck hole. Everything is the wine color (inner robe, sash, belt, gloves, etc) *except* the outer robe and boots, wh...

Re: Received IB robes today

You'll want some vertical folds in the front (it's not flat in front), and while the IB robes do have a lot of material (yes, mine came that was as well), a) you'll have the get in hemmed anyway and b) it takes a little bit of trial and error, but eventually you'll get the correct laying of the fold...

Re: Received IB robes today

Not sure on the helmet, as I don't have that one (I have the Rubie's), but as for the boots, I'd probably go a size up. That wasn't mentioned on the site when I ordered my set and while I ordered my normal size and the boots fit okay (a *little* cramped, but overall fine), I did add some gel inserts...

Re: Irishknots WIP thread

Maybe. I talked to my wife (who hemmed mine) and she said she just did a regular hem (and made sure the color or the thread matched well) and that there is possibly too much tension when yours was sewed. She suggested a walking foot to help with that.

Re: Irishknots WIP thread

It's more that the stitching is visible. You shouldn't be able to see the actual stitching of the hem.

Re: Irishknots WIP thread

Yeah, just under the main robes, but on top of the inner robes. I tried to put mine under the inner robes, but a) it didn't look right and b) didn't add anything to the overall costume and c) was cumbersome. If done right, you won't see it at all anyway. My "action" pic I took for my appro...
