Rogue One Chirrut Îmwe Costume Is Ready for a Fight
Rogue One’s Chirrut Îmwe was one of the breakout characters in the recent Star Wars film. The former Guardian of the Whills showed viewers connecting with the Force wasn’t necessarily about being a Jedi. Cosplayer Doc Cane Cosplay was inspired by the character and by seeing a strong Asian male role model on screen and decided to make a replica of Chirrut’s costume. He crafted it by hand with fabric and vinyl and EVA foam for the bracer and sling. As for the tunic top, he says:
Used McCall’s 2940 costume pattern for the gui. The left shoulder padded pieces are craft foam with fabric glued over it. Used liquid stitch to attach them to the jacket. Added some padding on the inside for a more muscular look. The left side has a worn white tinted color. I rubbed otter wax over specific areas to get it to look right.
You can view a couple of in-progress pictures below.
