    Im gathering research on making armor out of Sintra (PVC sheeting) you dont need a vacum table for it. Im also researching a clay that is called Gapoxio that can be used in makeing armor props. Its not for battle, only to make good looking props. You can get amaizing details with it. I also have an order for a Jango Fett costume for a customer when he gets back from 6 month deployment and a Legolas tunic. And Ill be making a Helms Deep Elf Armor from Lord of the Rings to sell, Dont know right now how much that will cost but we will see. New projects yah? I make movie costumes all the time. Lord of the Rings, Kingdom of Heaven and Star Wars are some of my best sellers.

    I have a festival coming up on May 5-7th at Mariners Museum park its like a mini ren faire. Lots of fairies, and would be Robbin Hoods running around. I have to get fairy wings they sell pretty good. Im making a few fantasy gowns. My mens ren clothing sells much better than the womens. You would think that would be the other way around since women love to shop. But men are my best customers. They all look very handsome when Im done with them. Even the chubby ones. I should be "the Good eye for the devonier guy". Sloppy to Highlander in just one costume change. LOL I kid you not, I have created some amazing transformations.

    Oh yea Im also working on a way to make Padme's and Jango's guns.

    Thats about it.

    Cant wait to see everyone at Saturdays meeting.

    I got some aluminum armor for my boba fett costume. I think it will look really good.

    Thanks I look forward to it. My light saber should be here soon, some time around the 15th maybe. I ordered it from RLSA, It is very close to Shaak Ti's but I think its actually better. I dont like having buttons on the hilt were my hands have to go. This one looks like the body of hers but with no buttons on the hilt. Very Cool!!!

    Next week I can order the leather and buckle for Shaak Ti's belt. Getting closer to costum completion. Head dress going to take a few months. The guy that is helping me, is a special effects make up artist. Only draw back at this point his is moving into another house and dosent have his workshop up and running yeat. Im hoping for June the casting needs warm weather anyway.

    see ya
