    I can see it now, the awesome power of the duct tape and cardboard united as one!!!!!
    hey Karen does it have to be the regular grey duct tape, or are you allowing the red duct tape too?

    Oh man, there are so many colors out there...even cammo for those who want to make a cammo trooper.

    [link=http://www.duckproducts.com/products/subcategory.asp?CatID=1&SubID=1]Here[/link] is the product catalog for Duck Brand Duct Tape. I think only the highest quality will be allowed. ;)

    That is not mine, that is what the finished product will look like, but mine will be finished in time for the next meeting. It's actually a pain the the arse to do.

    I may have it finished by this weekend. I'll post pictures as soon as I'm done. I don't think I'm going to paint it. I think I'll be going with the all natural cardboard look.

    I'm also working on a lightsaber using the tube that comes from wrapping paper, and I'm using my kids craft set to make cool things on the paper towel roll hilt.

    [face_frustrated] I was thinking about using foam and I wanted to show some examples but the thing is I do not know how to get a picture on here.

    Well, you gotta host the pic first (photobucket, personal web space, etc.)

    Then use the image tag found here: http://boards.theforce.net/help/Faqs.aspx#htmlcodes

    THANK YOU BOB!! This is my ex boyfriend. He made his beard out of foam and a pink bead. At first he tried silly string but every time he put on after shave, it would fall off. Finally he got it right. Unfortunately, that is all he got right.

    Why's he so serious? Doesn't he know he has that thing on his chin?

    He's so serious because he thinks he's soooo cool - making that foam beard and what not! [face_laugh]
    It does give a fine example of the many uses of foam when it comes to costuming though..........

    It shows that there is no limits to foam.
