    Should have known that Stormtrooper armor deal was too good to be true. It was a scam and nobody got there armor as it was sent to wrong city or wrong item was sent to people. At least I got my money back

    I am a hog for asking, but if no one else can take advantage of your offer, I definitely will.

    We essentially designed, cut, shaped, primed, sanded, and painted Bills Mando armor in 7 days. Not all consecutive, except perhaps for the last 6 days. ;-).

    And when she says, "we," that was 70/30 at best... Closer to 80/20 with Anna carrying my sorry piece of beskar'gam all the way

    I've delayed long enough. I've been asked where I got my imperial officer from, and here it is:
    http://costume141.com/

    They have an e-bay store: http://stores.ebay.com/TSSY2005

    I messaged them on e-bay, they replied and directed me to their website. I used it because they offered me a 10% off code for such.
    I payed via paypal so I wasn't worried as much about a scam. And as many of you have seen, I think it is good and works well. I have 2 flightsuits and a grand adm also from them that are all equally as impressive.
    My only comment is to give extra length for the arms. I followed their measurement guide and even added another inch or two and it still could be another inch or two longer I feel.

    My cap and rank badge I received from here:
    http://www.etsy.com/listing/102383054/imperial-officer-grand-admiral-rank-bar

    In any case, I recommend both sites. I'm impressed with their product for the cost. :)

    Give it a shot. I'm sure you will make it epic!

    The only thing I heard that was a pain was the contacts. Everything else isn't that bad, even the face paint.

    Getting set to spend some time this weekend on the following :

    Grievous
    One of my mandos ( I have 4 different going. Snow, desert, vizsla, and custom)

    Chances are Grievous will be ready for SWN. Anthony specifically pulled me aside to chat about him at filming.
