This is the 2nd part of how to make a Star Lord costume (though it’s the first actual part of Star Lord himself), to follow last week’s infinity orb tutorial.
This is mainly for the distressed jacket (the pants and shirt were mostly completed, I just added a few details). It’s pretty easy to distress the Star Lord jacket with a few different colors of paint and some intentionally “sloppy” light painting. I did the short jacket here, since that’s what Star Lord wore more in the movie, but if you wanted the long version, you could alter it by sewing a rectangle of fake leather material onto the bottom of your jacket and distressing it the same way.
The fake leather pieces I used here were some left over material from my Anakin costume, and that material can be found in JoAnn fabrics. That’s also where I got the studs, but if you can’t find any, you can always just use paper fasteners, and paint them with a little bronze or grungy gold paint to make them look more distressed.
