TOR Costuming: The Jedi Consular

So here's what I'm working on next...

I have a deadline for another costume; April 7th, 2012.

Unlike the last costume I did, I'm not sure how much I can do on my own, feasibly.  My sewing skills are described as "novice" at best.  Thankfully, I have a fiancee who's sewing skills outsrtips my own.  What I'm not going to do is dump a bunch of fabric in her lap and say "Sew Plz!", I'm going to try to help her with this.

This alone should be an interesting endeavor, because I've come to the unfortunate realization that we don't work well together on projects.  The more involved an endeavor, the worse we get.  We were constantly butting heads on previous costumes.  I don't know if it's the tone of speech I take on when my creative mind is working, or her venting frustrations at me, but we just don't mix well at those times.

For humor's sake, I'll post up how THAT progression goes too...

Anyway, back to the Consular: the outfit is reportedly the High-End PvP gear outfit for the Consular class.  Here's what I figure I need...

Torn Brown Outer Robe with Aurek/Besk "Runes"
Rope-Like accesories for Outer Robe
Big Shoulder Pads (TM) attached to the outer robe
Slate Blue Hooded Inner Robe with Aurek/Besh "Runes" around the hood
Brown Outer Skirt with Large Aurek/Besh "Runes"
Torn Khaki Inner Skirt
Brown Apron/cloth
Front Striped apron/cloth
Blue Gloves with Hand/Arm wraps
Sandals with Foot/Ankle wraps
Tan Outer Tunic
Tan Inner Tunic
Brown Inner Obi/Corset/Belly Wrap
Tan Outer Obi
Jedi Belt with Metal contraption/buckle and odd cylinder thing on front
Double-bladed lightsaber

Later, I begin the disection of putting it all together, with help from a few "Exclusive Resources"...
