    New pictures! With me in them, even. They're not the best quality, as they were taken by me, in the mirror at the end of the hall, but they get the point across.

    One
    Two
    Three
    Four
    Five
    Six

    I've hemmed the skirt now, as well, and finished the gathering. I just don't have pictures of that yet. I'll have more after I do the painting on the back. :)

    Okay, so I know some people who can sew. Now all I need is a costume idea, material and money. :p

    I'm 20. Since April 6th. But I'm not the youngest. :D

    Heh, I feel like I'm on the young side in most places, since I'm still in college, and all these old people I do stuff with have like, real jobs and stuff. It's good to be 20, though. :)

    The Padme is now finished (just in time for RotS, I might add), and accepted by the Rebel Legion as a formal/canon costume. w00!

    That's from the RotS premeire in Cleveland. With my lightsaber spoon. So very stylish, isn't it? ;)

    Both costumes very cool! :D

    Someone want to make a costume for me? I feel like with all that is going on right now, I may never get around to it. I'd wear it to meetings and the like too. :p

    Hey all...building my vader costume, did a "inexpensive" version last year had about $500.00 into it. Guess I went nuts because I decide to upgrade it to a film accurate version (A New Hope). So far I'm up to around $2,500.00 and tons of hours researching, shopping ebay and working on electronics for it. I've included a picture from last year of my total hand made costume (except the helmet). I'll post pictures of my new revised one once its more complete. I've managed to aquire a don post CA helmet along with a DP fiberglass version, and the fiberglass armor. I've also aquired two realistic lightsabers. and the leather undersuit. I know im setting myself up for having my costume picked apart but hey im proud of my work and my costume so its all just constructive critisism.

    ok...no picture...can someone tell me how to get them up on here?

    thanks! lee
