How to Make a Padawan Costume


In the Star Wars universe, a Padawan is an apprentice Jedi knight, studying under a Jedi master. Like the Jedi knights, Padawans live a rather monastic life and their apparel reflects this lifestyle. Simple in color and style, a Padawan costume is comfortable and easy to wear. Whether you're putting together a Halloween costume or getting ready for DragonCon, manipulate common items to create your own custom Padawan outfit.

Things You'll Need

  • Cotton kimono
  • Brown fabric dye
  • V-neck t-shirt
  • Khaki pants
  • Knee-high boots
  • Wide brown leather belt
  • Brown hooded bathrobe
  • Use common fabric dye to change a cotton kimono into a brown or tan shade. Any sort of brown color will do, as all Padawans have slightly different coloration in their clothing.

  • Put on a V-neck t-shirt. This will represent the under-robe by showing the neck, but won't give you the bulk of actually wearing another robe under the one that you show.

  • Don a pair of khaki pants. Make the pants well-fitting without being tight. Tuck the t-shirt into the pants. Add a pair of brown knee-high boots, as plain as possible, like English riding boots, not cowboy boots.

  • Place the brown kimono over the t-shirt and pants. Cross the leading edges of the kimono over in front, like you would a bathrobe. Place a wide brown leather belt around your waist, fastening the kimono closed.

  • Clip a light saber to your leather belt. Add a cell phone holster, tool bag or other leather pouch.

  • Finish off the look with a brown hooded bathrobe. The larger the robe the better, as you should look almost overwhelmed in this garment. Wear a robe with big sleeves, a bit hood and a large amount of fabric in the body.

Tips & Warnings

  • Make some of your articles of clothing black if your character is flirting with the Dark Side of the Force.
