    Anyone else planning on going in costume?

    I have a bunch of costumes, and I think it's hard to choose. At the moment I'm leaning towards my A-wing pilot, since it would be fun to meet another A-wing pilot that's coming from Austria. My costume plans for the year also includes making a jawa, and I think I'm going to have it done for CEII. It's a costume that's easy to pack and that's always a bonus. If I don't get the jawa made in time I'll probably bring my female tusken.

    I'm on the finishing stages of an Endor trooper, and that would be fun if there were a bunch of other troopers there, it's not a costume that's much fun if you are alone. And then of course there is the cancan trooper, I just hate dragging the helmet on the plane, and the corset broke at CVI. I might be able to do a temporary fix though.

    Ahhh decisions, decisions.

    The limitations I have is the logistics of bringing costumes across the Atlantic, as well as a week or two of holidays prior to the convention.

    Well 6 years ago I wore my rebel fleet trooper costume 3 days straight for Rebel Legion and by the end... it kinda smelt ;)

    So this time I'll be joining the Darksiders to even up the smelly threat to the galaxy as a stormtrooper!

    Good guys can wear white! :)

    Lol, I'm not going to take armour there (not that I really have a full set anyway, at least not until I leave home and get space for it). I doubt I'll bring my FX saber either since it wouldn't seasily fit in a suitcase.

    I could bring a ridiculous rubber mask though :p

    Do any of you guys have any ideas where to buy ready made costumes/uniforms? Stuff that actually look good and not that Halloween Crap... :) Have you tried Cosplaysky?

    You can buy them easily enough on most fancy dress sites, but they aren't cheap by any means.

    At the moment I'm leaning towards A-wing pilot, Endor Leia, Jawa and possibly the can can trooper.

    And it doesn't hurt that it's quite easy to pack.

    I used to be able to pack my entire endor trooper costume into the Alice backpack and then when I changed my personal clothes back into the Alice pack! Win win!

    I can get everything but the boots into my backpack, so definitely one of the easiest costumes to bring. I wont have time though to run around in yet another costumes. I need to know which Han Solos are going to be there, I had great fun with the Swedish Han Solo last weekend and it would be great to team up, but if he's not coming it might be more fun to just be a regular trooper. A decision, decisions, they are never easy.

    Just remember to have fun, regardless of which costume(s) you bring.
