    OK well these boards are normally really slow. I wanted to try to help somehow to get people on here to at least post SOMETHING!

    So I am making this thread for all things realated to our costumes and props - perferably star wars related (canon or just made up), but it doesn't have to be!

    So show-off your props, costumes, ideas, thoughts, progress...

    Here's my Holiday Special Fett (that I just recently sold):

    Here's a image from the cartoon, for those who haven't seen the Holiday Special:

    A friend of mine gave me a torso mannequin, and I decided to dress it up:

    So post your stuff or comments!

    Hey Richmond FanForce! Just dropping by to say hello! Hope all is well up-yonder along 64!

    Cool stuff Tony!

    Here's mine. The costume is an Airborne Clonetrooper. (the weapon is non-canon; something I threw together in 2 days.) I still have to do lots of tweaking, and a bit more trimming around the legs to make it more comfortable to walk in. When I first wore it at the Neptune Festival, only a few items 'fell' off, which is kinda good considering.

    I know of a Richmonder who wears one as well; he's a bit long-winded, slightly on the crazy-side, and has a true talent for swearing, but a nice guy nonetheless!;)

    Working on a ESB Vader at the moment.[face_money_eyes] I will put some pics on when I have it done. After the Vader I am thinking of doing either a Chewie or a Wampa. [face_thinking]I read on a site that people flock to the Chewie costume to get pics. They said that there were about only a dozen accurate Chewies out there right now. I do'nt think I have ever seen a Wampa costume.:confused: I could feel like a Wampa rockstar!![face_dancing]

    Great work guys they look fantastic!!!!

    There are two Wampa that I know of...one of them is AWESOME!

    The other is great, but looks more like a giant Mogwai (Gizmo) than a Wampa in the face.

    I would love to do a Gammorean Guard, they get tons of attention! Scratch that, there is only one good one that I have seen (his name is Richard) His costume is awesome!

    Right now I am working on a Jango! I will post progress pics of my helmet once I get it in the mail!

    Thumpy - good to see you on here! Don't be a stranger!

    You guys have some awesome costumes! I wish I could show you mine but I never took the time to learn how to post pics! I think I wanna be a stormtrooper like Tony or an airborne trooper like Thumpy. I always loved the stormie as a kid and once AOTC came out, I wanted to be a clone. When ROTS came out with all the different clones, I really wanted to be a shocktrooper but I just dont have the time or patience to do these types of things anymore.

    I still wish Aimee would have let me buy that completed Jango!

    Here's Troy at Dragon*Con:

    Yeah, but...

    Your armor looks all wicked awesome but you won't pony up for a Hyperfirm E-11? Now THAT would be perfect.



    BTW, You know that FF has a costumes and props section right? :D

    I know, but Richmond FanForce is lacking with people coming over to post - so why not let people talk about what they love the most....Star Wars, costuming, props, and their selves! :D

    Sorry I haven't been checking in lately!
    (So many boards...so little goof off time!)

    As for me, the picture shows my three favorite helmets.
    (I have an Imperial Gunner helmet too - just not on display).

    I wear my TD (Sandtrooper) most of the time at events and even have my own trading card!

    [image=http://www.tk6829.com/gt/6829td.jpg]


    I only hope that my next costume (in progress) will be done in time for some upcoming events.

    (Insert machined breathing noise here...)

    Wow! Thanks for posting my pic Tony. I think I look pretty imposing in my Airborne armor. Cant wait to troop with Alan in it. Thank you Eddie for that pic of us at the school. I had a really great time with those kids and yours as well. I tell ya man, I love kids! I love toys! I love Star Wars! I love you all!
    Well, maybe not Joel so much....rebelscum.

    I love my Tie Pilot, but I really do need to start working on that clone someday....

    Just got that in the mail - I sanded some of it to day at lunch. Once I have more completed, I will post it up.

    Ideally, I would like a set of the Master Replica's Jango Blasters... but this will do for now.

    I forgot all about that! Aimee and I were in that picture too! :D You can sorta still see Aimee on your right side, and I am guessing that is Rachel on your left (with the hyperfirm MG-34)

    Your TS looks great!

    The pictures do not do it justice, the fabric is spot on!

    So Danny, when you coming to the dark side? :cool:
