    I have two blasters, but I have thigh holsters for them.

    But, I do need a holster for a shotgun sort of weapon.....

    I'm going to be moving in April, but I think there's a convention in Detroit over my birthday weekend in May, plus conventions over the summer in Indy, Chicago, and St. Louis, so I still have time to put my Sintas Vel costume. Push comes to shove I can just wear that stupid Boba Fett dress I have. :p

    Anybody here done a Sintas costume? Also, just how expensive is it to make your own beskar'gam?

    Sent from my stupid little astro droid using TapaTalk 2.

    They changed the requirements and everyone before a certain date had to have their costumes judged again.

    This is only my take on it, Gil would know better

    That's exactly right. New standards and re-judging of all costumes for LFL events

    With any luck I can get my snow mando done when I get home. Due to weather my helmet will have to be hand painted my thankfully its only white with grey highlights like I said with any luck.......

    My other mando will be done by SWN. It has a little more work to be done on it but all the parts are at least on hand.

    Grievous original head is getting a well needed fix job for filming purposes

    Tarfulls new suit will be in around the end of may.

    Steve, I still have that flight suit and helmet if your still interested.

    I figured out my first costume: Obiwan Kenobi from. Revenge of the Sith. I am having a hard time though finding the boots for a decent price. Any suggestion? Also, I'm trying to track down the specific fabric for the costume and robe. Any information would be immensely helpful.

    Also ask Larry. He had purchased Obi boots that look pretty darn good. If I'm not mistaken they were affordable too.

    If I do a stormtrooper I think id like to do a sandtrooper. If we start amassing troopers would Vader mind having not all shinys? BobaChris12

    I agree Dave. Although, he would probably take any stormtroopers at this point. Well more than 1 that is......

    Aren't you a little short for a Stormtrooper?


    Sorry, I couldn't resist. Sand trooper would sweet! Start with the TK. It's only a few mods and a backpack.
