    Well...if I've learned anything it's that you can never have enough time when you're making these kinds of costumes. So.....I thought I'd start this thread so we can talk about who would like what for next year to give Terry and I plenty'o'time to get organized.

    I know I started thinking about Boba Fett seriously last year....buying stuff about 8 months before when I could find and afford...and actually working on it about 3 months prior...seriously anyway. And it wasn't enough time. So I'm starting right away this year and if it's done early I can start on something else. It will also give me time to do stuff for the rest of you, if the need be. So start putting your thinking caps on....I know a couple of you already have ideas that need to be discussed!

    Well... my Vader costume will definitely be ready by next Halloween. I am looking for a good seamstress to tailor my inner and outer cape. I'd be willing to pay. I have no idea on sewing at all *lol*. Once that is done... all I need is the belt boxes. Kevin is close to being done as all he needs is the COD piece and the Chest Box. So next year you'll have 2 Vaders walking around :cool:.

    Would you have the time for that Angela?

    :mad: I was going to make a Vader costume for next year!!! Besides, aren't you a little short for a storm trooper? Never mind Darth Vader! [face_devil] :p

    But seriously, if you are going to go as Vader I'll think of something else. 3 Vaders would just look weird. Maybe I'll work on a good ROTJ Luke. It would be cheap and then we could fight ;)

    You can never have enough Vaders... just think... 1 Vader from each movie. It'd be a real head turner

    Hee Hee... thought you might like it. I want to post that pic on this board but don't know how to do it. Doesn't bother me... as I'm a big fan of all Sci-Fi... well most of them.

    I would love to do the Vader capes....or anything else really.....do you already have the suit? We'll talk, Dave....there's plenty of time but we'll need it to look for the right wool fabric. The way Henry's flowed was to die for!

    Danny, make up your mind quick about what you want.....'cuz if it's Vader and you have nothing so far it's going to take the better part of the year to get together.

    As for Kevin's cod piece....Henry built his so he can likely give us some pointers.

    Anyone want to be something different? I mean I love Vader....but....variety is nice too.... :D

    Wow....I was just checking out the Raider site....impressive, indeed! I totally forgot that they didn't have leg armour and stuff. And how the heck do you see?

    Kevin are you able to do the red eye? I don't know how much about electronics you know about. I have a friend that did the little bit on my helmet but if you can do it, even better!

    I think the first step will be to make it out of cardboard to get it fit properly and see if I can get a good likeness of it. Then we'll worry about the actual construction. I guess the helmet will be the kicker but the thing about it is that it has so many sharp lines....it actually SHOULD make it easier to do than an all rounded one. I'm all excited now!!

    I want to do something different next halloween but I don't think my budget will allow for that. We'll see... If you have any ideas Ang then fire away.

    See Berk....planning far ahead allows you to do most anything because you buy stuff for it in small doses as opposed to all at once. It makes it all a lot easier on the ole'pocket book.

    We'll figure something out for you.....try to think about who your favorite characters are and go from there.

    Angela... the inner and outer cape has been made already... I just need it hemmed... if you can come over that will be great. Let me know if you can.

    Hemming? Geesh..don't ask me to do something complicated.... :D

    Yes, yes....no worries....it can be hemmed whenever. Have you got the shoulder armour already? I assume you do...but if not we can't do it until you have that....and the boots you're going to wear.

    My favorite character has always been Yoda. I think I'm about 5' too tall for that though. There's always Zuckuss or Dengar... Bossk?

    I would love a Jedi costume also. I would want it a non-traditional color (like green--as it would go with my coloring).

    We were talking about that half-cyborg Grand Admiral also. That would be interesting, but I think Jedi would be better for my first Star Wars costume.
