    Hey all! Just thought I'd pass on to you costumers, Proppalace.com and Exedge.net, do some nice work at reasonable prices.

    Jerry - Be careful posting URL's of prop and costume makers. LucasFilm does go after them with Cease and Desist letters. Please keep URL's and propmaker names on the private board or in PM and private emails only.

    Thanks! :)

    Another note about prop-palace is that I've heard a whole lot more bad things regarding them and than good. So be wary. I'd ask around before making a purchase.

    Thanks for the additional information Rick. I knew he had fled the country but didn't have additional information like that you've posted.

    :)

    Sorry Folks,

    Thanks for the info Rick, but I dealt with a woman for some stuff I bought and it didn't come from overseas.

    I'll be keeping my thoughts to myself. Hey Rick, maybe I'll see you at one of the upcoming Garrison Events?

    You guys have a great weekend.

    I'll be at the BBQ if you're going. And yeah I'll be attending upcoming Garrison events as well.

    There's no reason to keep you thoughts to yourself, I just know about this guy cause he's from near my home town and it was all over the papers... As far as who you delt with and it being from the US.. I don't know.

    We can always use good costuming resourses :D

    Info on this guy's gone through the 501st boards too. Supposedly he has a number of "contacts" in the US who do his shipping for him. It's a shame there's so much doubt about him because he has a lot of stuff on his site that's otherwise near impossible to get.

    There's always new 'providers' popping up. Fortunately, since a few of us go to a lot of cons, we make new connections all the time. If there's ever anything specific you are looking for, please feel free to PM or email me privately and I probably will be able to point you in the right direction or I'll know someone you can ask. Not to mention my 501 connections are really tight with several garrisons on the East Coast and they always know people. :)

    For those who are daring or talented enough, you could always make your own armor out fo flat PVC sheeting. That is how I plan to make my Mandalorian armor. :D

    Hey Guys!

    I was reading through the Costumes and Props thread looking for easy ideas for a beginner. Between that and looking at patterns at the good old local Wal-Mart, I think I've come up with something easy (well, it looks easy :) ). I'm looking at doing either a female sith or a generic Jedi to start off. I just wanted to see if I could get a few suggestions on material type on what would be good for either a 'Sith-type' robe or the Jedi robe and tunic.

    I saw a nice velvet-ty material, but it looked really, really thin. Any suggestions?

    Karla that really depends on what you want. Do you prefer to be a jedi or a sith?

    I know many girls who have done sith costumes in velvet, but you would best stick to wool for a jedi robe.

    Just my 2 cents.

    BTW, go to JoAnn's for your patterns, they have sales were you can buy patterns for only $1.

    Karla,
    Most of the Jedi costumes used in the movies were made of Indian homespun cottons and wools called Kadi. We can help you find fabrics you like that have that organic look and will work well for your first costume.

    Maybe we should plan a Fabric Row shopping outing for September? :)

    I'd be there!

    Now to complete both outfits, I guess I've got to start the search for a good lightsaber. (All I have is a $5 Hasbro one. :) )

    Thanks Guys!

    Karla, you can make a greatt lightsaber prop for under $30. If interested I'll post a link to a site that will tell you how.

    Under $30? That's great, fits right into my budget :) I was reading on the Costume and Props board that people paid well over $100 for the ones that they got. I was thinking that I'd have to start saving up for one!

    Thanks in advance for the link!

    Hardware stores like Home Depot and a good dremel can help you make a really decent custom lightsaber for less than you think! :)
