  1. 1

    Get a white or off-white karate jacket that fits loosely around the shoulders. The jacket should be comfortable enough to provide unrestricted movement during extended duels with Darth Maul. Wear the jacket over a white or off-white T-shirt.

  2. 2

    Fit a wide brown or black leather belt around your waist, over the jacket.

  3. 3

    Put on a pair of loose-fitting pants or pajama bottoms that are white or off-white. These should be comfortable enough to leap from a space port onto the deck of a moving ship.

  4. 4

    Find a pair of calf-length black or brown boots, and tuck your pants into the boots. Tall riding boots work best for this. Buying a pair can be costly, so if you don't own a pair, try to borrow them.

  5. 5

    Create a belt hook by cutting about 4 inches off the end of a wire coat hanger with wire cutters. Bend it around your belt, leaving an open section that creates a hook.

  6. 6

    Pick up a toy light saber and hang it off your belt. Light saber colors do not signify Force alliance, but are a frequency preference personal to each Jedi, so pick your favorite color.

  7. 7

    Drape on a large brown robe with wide sleeves and a large hood.

  8. 8

    May the Force be with you.

Tips and warnings

  • Choose clothing and materials made of natural fibers and earth-tone colors like brown, tan and off-white. The traditional Jedi attire consists of an off-white tunic and pants worn beneath a dark brown cloak, but this can be mixed with subdued grays and light blues.
  • Give yourself an impressive Jedi name. For ideas, check Web sites like the official Star Wars site or (see Related Sites).
  • Your Jedi robes make you visible to the powers of the dark side. Be aware of Dark Jedi and Sith Lords, who may attack you. Attempt to use your Jedi skills to avoid confrontation, but have your light saber ready if battle appears imminent.
