    Hey everyone. Dressing up in a costume sounds like alot of fun. My only problem is that I'm not blessed wih alot of money. Plus this is all new to me. Any suggestions?

    Its really rather easy. Be sure to come to our next meeting also I'm sure we'll have a lot of info for you there, but keep checking here and Zhi-don and Darth_Avery should be able to help you out. I've got some ideas and I'll post them a little later.

    Whew! that was exciting! i'm sure i can help if any one chooses one of these costumes.

    Padme costumes are really popular....as long as you don't really care about your hair being perfect.

    i tried to pick costumes that were reasonable to make. Jedi costumes tend to be cheap and the white padme costume is cheap too.

    any props you see i can help you with.

    the characters i wasn't able to get pix for were:

    Jocasta Nu
    Kit Fisto
    Jedi children
    Bad guys
    and a couple padme costumes that looked easy

    new information: i found a shoe repair that does custom work on boots. i figure they must be good, they make clown shoes! jedi boots should be a cinch for them. will keep you posted, boots will be done a week from friday. using SRB's advice i have been checking out hardware stores for light saber parts. came up empty so far at walmart...next stop lowes. more later.

    well....


    I was wondering if any of you had any ideas for the metal arm bands.... I want to do something that looks really cool, but i can't think of any way to do this but like tin foil over carboard.

    Any ideas would be appreciated!

    hi guys;

    tracy would stainless steel be ok? i need to get some measurements. i have access to a machine shop and one of my friends is an engineer.did you check on the adult padme costume on the link i sent you? i am sure i could find one closer for you if you wanted it. let me know. i picked up my boots today...they are awsome and fit perfectly. belt dyed nicely too. spent the evening working on my light saber. its about 90 percent complete. looks pretty fine if i do say so my self. its a combination of obi-wans old saber and his new one. offer for help still is open. PM me if i can help.

    MTFBWY,

    zhi-don

    Zhi-don:
    I did check out the adult padme costumes, but I couldn't find a size small one available ANYWHERE! they were all sold out. I tried like 20 different sites. :( SO then I decided it was hopeless, and that I could just piece together my own. ANd if you could help me make those arm bands that would be so unbelievable great!

    I already told my boss at work that i have a meeting this sunday(well, not today, but next sunday) and that he's not allowed to make me work :p So, I will be there for sure. LEt meknow what you need and stuff.

    And as far as the jump suit goes, I was going to go to a dance store and by dance pants because I think that's the only place I'll find anything close. And then I was going to go find a whilt lons sleaved shirt and sew on it so it lookslike the padme one. And I may be doing the ripped look. I really want to, but we'll see. :)

    Bt if you have a better idea for the jump suit, let me know! I am definitely up for new options. I want it to look good. :)

    Thanks!

    use Sintra. It bends in boiling water. You can then spray paint it the metal color. My wife made her slave leia using it.
