    Hey frankie check this out:

    http://www.imperial-fleet.com/BBC/

    its got some awesome PVC tutorials, Im going to try and make the Stortrooper from ANH for my Tie Costume, but I still have to finish painting the helmet, figure out some armor, and modify the Rubies Vader. Im not going to paint the Vader, I just dont have time, but Im adding the velcro so it doesnt strangle me. Anyone have an sugestions on new lenses? I have dremeld down the edges to give me more of a wide view but its still like looking through murky water.

    WOW! That was a really good link. On another of the links you sent me, I found a guy who makes the Movie canon gauntlets..so I wont have to make them by scratch after all! They should be here on Tuesday around the time I get my blasters/holster! All I will have to do is put in the velcro, accessories, and paint them. All I need to do now is somehow motivate my sister in assisting with my vest...maybe the ole' Force choke would work....

    Frankie is going to help me out and see if we can't get Shaak up and running by friday night.. I'll keep you posted.. but I am excited about it.. any thoughts you have let me see them tonight or tomorrow... I will shop for some cheap ways of fixing it tomorrow.. possibly.. rubber foam.. where could I buy a piece of rubbery foam.. has been suggested at the upholstery place.. but they did not have the rubbery foam last time.. so any other ideas for where... I will check fabric stores in the morning.. my original foam is not rubbery.. it is spongey.. any ideas on where.. Frankie has a kewl idea of gluing the headpiece to a smooth showercap so it stays on my head better.. and then using this rubbery foam.. or maybe even latex.. though I don't know a thing about latex and how to do it.. but I am entrusting myself to Frankie to help figure out the hard parts.. I'm just planning on wearing it! Joke[face_monkey]
    I plan on doing whatever Frankie tells me.. as long as I can afford it.

    wish me last moments luck ya'll!!

    I was thinking more of how fun it would be to see all the costumes.. with it being in Phoenix and the 501st having a garrison there.. not likely we have much of a chance to win a costume contest..

    it is soon..this friday afternoon.. I would drive and go.. but my car is too iffy for a drive all the way to phoenix at this time.

    as much as I don't want to... I have to forego the shaak ti making this evening.. I am still not feeling any better.. which really is the pits.. I have managed to do what needs to be done for Braiden's costume.. and Jake says if at all possible tomorrow he will help me work on the shaak ti headpiece..but for tonight.. I am just not feeling up to anything much other than what I have already accomplished.

    Yeah, I can do that. I have some sites that give ways to build blasters using normal ACE, Lowes, and Home Depot stuff.

    Seriously though, do you think these would make me too tall? I dont remember how tall vader was from helmet to floor, but these are the cheapest things ont he market and i could probably cut the sole down an inch or 2 if necessary

    oh wow!! Can I sport the christmas boots as well [face_whistling]

    I think those other boots would work just fine.. how many inches are they.. I don't think we want you more than 6'5" at the most.. just my opinion though.

    I am in for a party for costumes/props whatever.. just say when and where.. and by all means I volunteer the use of my home if need be.

    Well, I finally gave in to my darker side and purchased a Vader lightsaber. "The Wook" has some shades of Sith in him, after all.
