Fabric for robes

Post by Romlyn »

Hi all!

I've decided to start my journey on getting ready for 501st approval for the ROTJ imperial guard.

This will probably be the first of many questions but to start i just want to see if these fabrics are OK?

I was saw this fabric for the inner robes. It's a wine-coloured velveteen, however, i suspect the shine on it will probably make it not ok?

Next I found a crimson coloured velvet for the outer robes. It seems to be a decent weight as well and has a good colour.

Also the CRL says that i should use a burgundy suede for the gloves. If i got that correct this fabric should work?

Just a small note due to the lighting of the store and just using a phone camera the fabrics are just a touch darker than shown in the pictures.

Thanks in advance for any help or criticism. (also if you live in Australia and know of a better place to get the fabrics that information would be much appreciated :D )

Lighting can be tricky. I alway take a photo of the information that way others can see in person and give feedback.
