    Yes they are. There are additional options including a speaker with a built in MP3 player. All come with the microphones and rechargeable batteries.

    At 12W, you'd probably be able to hear me over the crowd while taking pictures at SWN

    no problem, timeframe? do you need a whole belt rig or just a holster?

    gonna be working on some Jedi belts over the next couple weeks as well as some new stuff ;)

    They do not change your voice. They can be added to a voice changing system to amplify sound only.

    We are going to be out of town from April 20th thru May 7th.
    After May 7th there will not be sufficient time to start a new costume from scratch (buy or find pattern pieces and fabric, cut out, fit, sew, refit, finish, etc).
    Any costume work Janice is doing must be completed (at least reasonably so) before we depart.
    William - we NEED images of what you want so we can get to work on it.

    Ordered my new boots and looking forward to a serious upgrade from my last 2 pairs I used.

    Picked up a new bin to transport Vader. Very strong tote with large wheels and a collapsible handle. I can fit everything but my small padded case inside of it.

    Where did you get the case with wheels? Boba Fett is in need of one.

    Saw it in the Home Depot ad this past weekend. They're a little pricey at $60 but very tough and roomy.

    Great! Thanks! If they last a while, are durable and can protect the investment otherwise know as a costume, then the $60 is worth it!

    Been scouring the web looking for chest rods. Best I've found is a new box with machined coin slots.

    Search I must...

    i bought some wrapping for a tennis racket handle wrapping to try out on my lightsaber seeing as smooth metal can be a little slippery. I wasnt sure if it had an adhesive back or not, the package didnt give a whole lot of info. so i got it to try. luckily there was no such adhesive on the back. no one wants to gum up their saber with sticky goo. The wrap itself is tacky enough to hold to the saber while wrapping it. it does have a tiny adhesive spot on the tail end to stick to itself when done wrapping. it does have a good feel and will definitely help keep a saber in hand. if anyone is interested in trying it it was only like three dollars at walmart. there are a few different kinds of wrapping, i got the ultra wrap.

    They fit pretty good. The toes are a little snug, but with wearing them around the house for a few days, they should loosen up a bit.

    There's a little room to put my lifts in too, but the heal that's already on the pair seem to do the trick.

    Couldn't find matching rods for my chest box. I still have one that I recovered at Edgefest, but the second is lost.

    Found a new chest box with machined coin slots for only slightly more than just replacing the chest rods! Score!

    What's holding us up?

    Any thoughts on straps for a chest box?
