    Azeem, your costume is awesome, even my husband thought it was very cool- maybe I could convince him to wear something like that. But I have to ask, who is Jax? Is he a character from the SW Comics?

    Greetings Everyone,

    Maybe I should let Azeem answer this, but here goes anyway...

    Carnor Jax is a former guardsman from Palpatine's elite Royal Guard in the DarkHorse comics series [link=http://www.theforce.net/comics/darkHorse/dhSer_crimEmp.shtml]Crimson Empire[/link]. Check out the cover of part one [link=http://www.theforce.net/comics/images/dhCovers/large/swce1.jpg]HERE[/link].

    Jax controls the Empire's ruling council for a while after ROTJ. His nemesis is another former guardsman named Kir Kanos.

    EDIT: [link=http://www.theforce.net/comics/images/dhCovers/large/swce3.jpg]THIS[/link] is my favorite of the covers. :D

    EDIT #2: BTW, the covers linked to above depict Kir Kanos. [link=http://www.theforce.net/comics/images/dhCovers/large/swce6.jpg]THIS[/link] cover shows Carnor Jax standing on top of Kanos.

    ALSO, that is one FANTASTIC Jax suit, Azeem! :cool:

    Hope this helps,

    Great pics everybody! Guess it's time for me to contribute. Here's me in [link=http://www.knology.net/~jereid/images/jedi/el_0146.jpg]Jedi garb[/link] with an EL saber. Took it without a flash to get a glow out of the EL, it just looks white with the flash.

    Thanks for the comments folks :)

    The helmet is a DP royal guard helmet I modified and repainted.

    The robes are velvet/satin that my wife made. We are working on the Kir Kanos version next.

    Thanks Doright! Not that you can really see anything in that pic. :) The robe was made by our very own ObiWannabe (well, she used to hang around here anyway). I "edited" the other parts together from mostly existing parts (karate gi, riding boots,...).

    That's a cool-looking saber you made. I have about five of those sink kn... er, I mean, pommels lying around. ;)

    Ok.. here are pictures of me in my Jedi Robes. Thanks for all the help here everyone. :D

    [link=http://www.geocities.com/doright36/Robes.htm]My Jedi Robes[/link]


    The tunic is an old Karate uniform. I made the Sash and tabards myself. I did most of the Robe myself but my mom had to help me attach the hood [face_blush] Let's just say I had problems doing that part on my own and leave it at that shall we. The saber is one I made on my own.

    Thanks to everyone here who gave out helpful tips. :D

    Great Job Fanboy!



    paulkenobijedi01 It's really not that hard to make sabers. Some of mine I can do in a short amount of time. Well if you don't count waiting for paint to dry as part of your construction time. The sewing was stretching it for me a bit but my Mom was there to help. Hey, even a 30 year old can ask Mom for help sometimes.

    I can understand that. Sewing is a lot harder than it looks. My hat is off to the folks here who do it so well.

    Well, they're neither fancy nor schmancy, but [link=http://homepage.mac.com/surlygirlie]here[/link] is the link to my costume photo pages.

    Hopefully, things will expand a bit before long, as there are a few costumes that haven't made it on there yet...
