    Since I forgot about this until recently, I have a Queen Amidala costume if anyone can wear it. My niece wore it a few years ago (she was 9 I think at the time). If it fits, you're more than welcome to wear it. It's the one with the lights at the bottom. Or we can use it as a guide if we need to.

    I would LOVE to have a new Fett costume to wear to the Con, but at this point that's just about impossible.

    Does anyone know the best place to find a Graflex 3-Cell Flash Handle (I think that's the name)?

    Sometimes people get lucky on Ebay.

    Unfortunately, unless they are clueless or oblivious, most old camera shops that might have them, though I suppose they are getting rare, now, know that they can get a lot of money for them these days. But there are still a few out there.

    Good luck. I'm into custom hardware sabers, myself.

    Don,

    I posted this on the other boards, but I figure you haven't checked it yet.

    I need help in getting a Princess Leia -ANH -Help me Obi-Wan belt made.

    HiCarrie is working on this costume for the Relay. I have already sent her a pattern for the gown and hood. Which she will be making soon. The only thing left is the belt. We plan on making it out of white vinyl because of cost. Can you help me out with finding some patterns or pics of this?

    BucketHead: You would probably definitely be better off just trying to build a lightsaber hilt yourself. I saw one of those Graflex handles at Comic-Con a few years back and they wanted about $150 for it. Needless to say, it needed a lot of work (it literally looked like they had just pulled it off the camera). It was very dirty and would've required a lot of modifications. I'd take Jedi-Loreen's advice and just build your own. I'm sure it'll be cheaper and you'll be able to make yours look however you want.

    I have given up on the neverending search. I bought the parts from BigYellowBox that I need to build my own saber.

    shawn;

    there are a couple of good sites for princess leia belts...some concern over whether the belt has a white or silver background. the buttons in the middle of the metal squares can be found at jo-anns fabric. if you are going to use vinyl i recommend wrapping it around a thicker material - like card board. and then using duct tape and glue to hold it down. if you still need the pictures i can pm you the links if you want.
