    I think those helmets are gonna be alot more than that. Trust me I've been trying to think of what costume I could start out with that's not that expensive. The cheapest thing so far seems to be an Imperial Scanning crew member.

    I to am interested in a Royal Guard costume. I have been pricing around. Look at ebay for the helmet. No matter what, it is probably going to run you somewhere between $75-$200 for the helmet.

    I am slowly putting together a Clone Trooper costume. So far I just have the Rubies Helmet which I am customizing and adding things, painting ect. Its going to be a slow process, but I plan on having a full costume no later than the release of EP3.

    Royal Guard helmets run anywhere in the Range of $120-300 each. Due to the fact that Don Post which made the most accurate helmet lost its license to Rubies. I can try to look on E-bay for you but I don't think I'll find that much.

    Raleigh Creative Costumes only rents costumes, not for sale. Try Hughie and Louies' , 6017 Glenwood Ave. 783-5858. Once you get the helmet, the cloak is a chorus or graduation robe design. Cheapest way to go is get a pattern for a robe and buy red lycra material at Hancocks Fabrics for a couple of bucks and have your parental unit sew it.

    EBay has a lot of them for sale, or check with Sean and he'll hook you up with one. Be prepared to spend around $500 for a basic complete one.

    When you say stuff, was it small stuff like assessories? They do sell things to go on the side, like staffs, earrings, etc, but as far as I know they only rent costumes, but that was last year in Dec. when I was looking for LOTR stuff myself. Maybe they've changed since then. I'd call each of the places and ask first. :)
