    This is from a series of photos my friend and I took from Anime Expo. I REALLY liked the way the saber glowed in this light. Also, never trust anyone with your saber >_<. I have to buy a new one. The scuffs on the hilt are just too disgusting for me to look at...

    I also got to meet Danakin at Anime Expo! He was there as Vader with a few other 501st. It was awesome. He was Vader but the he had his helmet off with his Anakin hair so it was an interesting contrast. I told him about my Anakin costume and how I had just worn it a few hours prior and how it was up in my hotel room. I also told him how I admired his costume and thanked him for starting the thread. Too bad I was dressed as Advent Children Cloud Strife at the time ^^;;.

    Overall Anime Expo was very cool. I was not alone in the Jedi aspect because I wound up talking with with some of the Rebel Legion and then people thought I was one of them and wanted pics of all of us XD. I was like "No! I'm a Sith not a Jedi!" It was very cool. My friend who wears AOTC Anakin was there in his costume and we kept going "I'm Anakin" "No I'm Anakin!" back and forth. It was good times XD.

    Worst part was, I forgot my Obi at home, so I wore my costume Obiless XD. Overall very fun experience. Especially for being Anakin at an Anime con. (We started a Rebellion group of American Movie cosplayers XD.)

    Yeah i like the way the anakin FX glows in mid light rooms. Looks so real on pics.
    What did happen to you fx? Has to be bad if you have to buy a new one.

    I did not meet Dan yet, but i hope that i will one day, i think he may be a nice guy to talk with.
    I am glad that he has fun in the 501st, its a fun group to hang out with.

    Hey guys

    I Live in the UK - and im trying to track down an Adult size Rubies Anakin Glove.
    Currently my sister is in New York on holiday, and is trying to find one for me.

    I have 2 questions.

    1) Where is the best place for my sister to look for one in NY?
    2) If she cant find it, anyone in the UK know where I can get one? - every where I have tried so far says out of stock,
    and upon enquirying they have never had it over here...

    PLEASE HELP - I really want to get one. I have decided to undertake my first ever costume - Anakin ROTS for a SCI FI
    convention here in Bournemouth Uk in November - should I be having this much difficulty finding the glove?

    P.S Feezle - the wig you got - can you post a picture? alos where did you get it - thx

    I'll be at Comic-Con as Anakin. Prolly all four days but not as Anakin all four days. I'll prolly be Cloud a little, too. Prolly try to enjoy myself most of the time, though (not easy to do all the time in costume).

    Here are a couple pics of me with the wig. And one without for comparison.

    [image=http://home.comcast.net/~richardfeezle/mewithwig.jpg]

    Yes I sweat more than any other person on earth. I need to play with the wig to give it more of a messy look but it has a lot of potential. Here is the link... http://www.acewigs.com/shop/wigs/Lacey_Wigs/4225.php#

    I got light golden brown.

    Could any of you please give me dome great instructions for making an authentic ROTS Anakin belt? I'm really looking forward to making a great costume, and would love some pointers. I don't wanna go super duper expensive but for the entire belt including materials and detail, I want to be looking at about $100-$150. Like I said, I want to go as authentic as I can w/o the price making my eyes bleed. Thank you.

    Guys, padawansguide.com just put up an article about the Anakin glove. Interesting to see. I was ready to go one myself, and after reading it, I'm reconsidering. I'm 5'8" and about 165lbs., from the looks of it, the glove will swallow my arm.

    Huh. Well, good to know thats only a prototype and still needs to be developed further...hopefully.

    Colors look kind of off to me. Looks like the undertunic is black.

    Well I'm kinda new here but I'm not into formal greetings so let me just say "Hey, my name is Phil." Back to Anakin. . . .I was wondering how you found that picture of the prototype for the Anakin Master Replica costume. I had heard some stuff that they were gonna come out with one, but never from an official source. I know some of you guys that can have sweet fully loaded Anakin costumes might thinking it taints dressings up as Anakin, but I will say that I fully support Master Replicas on this one. But that's just my 2 cents.

    I fully agree with you if MR does start that in production. A costume by MR I truly think that they will cause me to have to file bankruptcy cause then i will have to look no farther for a costume. Plus anakin could be a start then who knows obi, droids, dare i say VADER. The possiblities are endless. I'm getting poorer thinking about it.

    p.s. If you look close enough at the pic of the MR anakin costume does that look like a vader outfit. Thats my 2 cents.
