    Armor, quite fun but time consuming & if you don't have the set up it will cost to do it.
    We went to someones house that had the oven & vac table. Took no time to do, but doing the molds can be hard.

    I will get Snow Trooper pictures up soon, you may have to go view them on the RMFF web site.

    Hello everybody!! We had a Sci-Fi Con this last weekend here in Denver. If you want to go to rmff.net in the photo gallery at the bottom we have some pictures of most of our costumes :D
    Darth Hair is Quinlan Vos & Snow Trooper, I'm Gladreil & Snow Trooper, oh, & a Sith.

    Next week we will have more pictures, it just takes awhile to round them all up.

    Welcome to the PFF FreakADroid. I'd recommend getting in contact with DEICIDE. He's the CO of the local 501st stormtrooper garrison and give you a better idea of what is involved.

    Good luck.

    Thank you guys very much, that costume is getting items added on to it soon. I would love to see your pictures Wenchy. I'm getting in big trouble, I can't watch a movie without thinking to myself, "wonder if I should make that outfit" or "that would be cool" & get on the internet to look for photos.
    I have gone crazy!! Is that why your crazy Wench? j/k.

    Ok, now the whole Scottish costume is complete. I just finished the matching coin purse and the entire thing is now done!

    YAYYYYY! I'm going to try to get pictures of me in it this weekend and post them so you all can see what my hard work has produced. If you want an idea of what it looks like Go Here. It is the Scottish dress in the upper left corner.

    My skirts are exactly the same except that my ribbon on the black skirt is wider and bolder, and the clasps and ribbon that hold the plaid skirt up are all gold.

    My corset is navy blue microseude with tan borders, black ties and gold grommets. The purse is the same black with the same white, bold ribbon on it that the black skirt is made of.

    I'm very happy with it.
