March 26th, 2005 will be the first "Build a Prop Day". This will be the first in what will hopefully be a continuing event to where we can get together to pool resources and make some cool props for our various costumes. The first one will focus on lightsabers and cloaks. Try and get the materials you'll need beforehand as this session will mainly be about the actual construction or in the case of the cloaks, cutting and sewing. DallasValla has some patterns for some cloaks (if you want to PM her) and lightsaber patterns are plentiful, although I suggest using a pattern from [link=http://bigyellowbox.tripod.com/]The Big Yellow Box[/link]. It has a parts list (mainly using stuff from Lowe's and Radio Shack) and detailed instructions. The "where" will be decided soon, but this will probably be talked about more on the [link=http://www.chattooine.com]Chattooine[/link] boards, so you may want to look there to weigh in on the discussion. Nightmarez plans to have an Armor Building day soon as well. More details on that later.
