A note on robe length:  
We list the length of the robe, and then the suggested height that the robe would be best suited for.  
For example: 58" - 6'.  This means that the robe itself is 58 inches long from neck to hem and would best be suited for someone approximately 6 feet tall - it will be approximately ankle length.

Jedi Robes in Cotton and Wool
Black Cotton Brown Cotton Black Wool Brown Wool

Whether for a night cruising the bars on Tatooine or battling Sith Lords, these Jedi robes are the perfect way to start or complete a Jedi inspired costume!  These unlined robes feature oversized hoods, bell sleeves and professionally finished seams.  For your reference, the models are about 6 feet tall with 40 - 42 inch chest.  These robes open all the way down the front and there are no front closures - if you need a closure at the neckline or have sizing questions, please contact us.  Our robe measurement chart is located on our Custom Orders page.

These robes are intended to be 'generic' Sith and Jedi style - if you have a particular character you are trying to emulate or specific details you wish to have incorporated into your robe contact us for a custom order with your detailed specifications and which character so that we can provide you with a price quote.  Please keep in mind that many of the fabrics used in the original films are no longer manufactured but reasonably similar fabrics may be available.

The 100% cotton twill is similar in weave and weight to trouser/pants fabric, is machine washable, but does not have the same flow and drape that the wool flannel does and requires ironing.  It also has a slight surface sheen.  The wool is movie correct, has a depth of color and more luxurious texture, is warmer and naturally moisture and wrinkle resistant.  The wool is dry clean only.

These can be shortened to your specified length after purchase at no additional charge.  Please allow an extra 24 hours to make this adjustment prior to shipping.  See our Cloaks and Robes Measurement Chart on our Custom Orders page for the measurements we would need.

Grim Reaper Robes
Grim Reaper Robe
Grim Reaper Robe

Made from black textured 100% cotton, this Grim Reaper robe slips on over the head and has one hidden hook and eye at the neck. The hood is self lined, and is shown above with the optional face veil (available below for separate purchase).   This voluminous robe measures 74" at the chest circumference, and approximately 196" around the hemline.  The model wearing the robe shown above is 6' tall and has an approximately 42" chest circumference.  The scythe shown in these photos is a real, antique wooden scythe which weighs over 6 pounds - it is not for sale, and is not included in the purchase of this robe.

The wrist end of the oversized bell sleeves and the hemline are intentionally cut to look ragged and aged.  If you wished to accentuate this effect upon receipt, this Grim Reaper robe can be shredded further with scissors, wire brush and/or sandpaper to the level of aging and distressing you wish this garment to portray, or you can add 'mud' or paint to create different effects according to your character.  Ageing the edges with bleach or other chemicals may turn this fabric red - test in an inconspicuous spot first.

Our Reaper robe can be worn loose as shown above, or you can belt it with a rope tied at the waist for a different look.

This robe also makes a great Ghost of Christmas Future for your production of A Christmas Carol!

These can be shortened to your specified length after purchase at no additional charge.  Please allow an extra 24 hours to make this adjustment prior to shipping.  See our Cloaks and Robes Measurement Chart on our Custom Orders page for the measurements we would need.  These robes can also be belted or tied at the waist and pulled up over the belt in the front to be a shorter length with a train effect in the back if the back is not pulled over the belt as much.

This fabric is currently only available in limited quantities - once it's gone, there will be no more exactly like it as it is no longer made.  We are  currently seeking a good quality replacement.

Sheer Black Face Veil for Grim Reaper Robe
 This separate veil is not included with or attached to the robe since many people have makeup effects, or full or partial masks that do not require veiling.  If you have no mask or makeup effect this is one way to hide your face.  This veil will be attached by you to fit inside the hood however you wish with safety pins (not included), then the edges can tuck into the neckline at the center front.

Lady Death Robe
This women's version of our crinkle textured black 100% cotton Grim Reaper robe could be used as a chemise, undergown, or layered with other costume pieces to create a variety of characters.  It differs from the regular Grim Reaper robe in that it has pleats at the shoulders and a black veil attached to the inside of the hood that can be tucked in at the front of the neck to hide the face and neck.  The veil could also be folded back inside the hood if you prefer to wear a mask or have your face showing.  The sleeve and garment hemlines have been distressed and shredded.  Shown here with a textured silk waist piece (93% Silk/ 7% Lycra - sold separately), this gown/robe could also be worn with your corset over top or simply belted with a rope, scarf or belt to create different looks.  The model in these pictures is 5'6" tall.  The generously sized gown measures 72" around the bust, 24" around the armpit/armsceye, is 55" from neck to front hem, and the train extends 68" from nape of neck to back hemline.  The sickle shown above is an antique sickle which is not for sale and is not included in the purchase of this robe.

These can be shortened to your specified length after purchase at no additional charge.  Please allow an extra 24 hours to make this adjustment prior to shipping.  See our Cloaks and Robes Measurement Chart on our Custom Orders page for the measurements we would need.

Fantasy Surcoats and Robes
Sith Surcoat
Sith Surcoat Fabrics and Details This original experimental design for a Sith Surcoat was based on traditional Asian coats.  Andrea designed this costume and then she and Alethea created it together. The sash obi is made from a black textured synthetic fabric.  A pintucked shot garnet taffeta was used in the some of the surcoat panels.  The surcoat also included black cotton twill and a textured black pleather.  While most of the surcoat is unlined, the taffeta panels are backed with black cotton twill for shape. The surcoat features slits at the sides with embossed leather accent reinforcements at the tops of the slits.

The open fronted surcoat will fit around a 47" chest - due to the design, it can be worn by anywhere between 40" and 50" or so.  Length of surcoat is about 52".  Obi shown here will be shortened to fit your belly button waist measurement - please provide this measurement at the time of purchase.

*Note: the camera was not able to accurately photograph the shot taffeta - in real life it is a deep red shot with black.  If you need a fabric sample to check the color before purchasing, please contact us.
