    I want to go as a Jedi KNight too, but am very lousy at costuming.

    Well, was thinking of doing on Charity Premiere or on 16th May itself. Hope more ppl here on this board can meet up together and do some roleplaying! :D

    I want to do Wesell but I still can't find the Rescue Worker Helmet to make the base of the helmet and cheap bulky headphones :_| and donno if my seamstress can make my overalls in 2 weeks. :( I'll see how leh after my exam next Tuesday.

    Come worse to worse, I'll be Padme Amidala in White Battle or Padme Naberries Tatooine (with Padme Buddie on my shoulder) for May 16th "Parade". Other costumes need only a few days to finish (heehee, I'm always asembling my costumes and doing some parts in 1 night!)

    So when you all want to come together to do the costumes? I can offer my sister's house (In front of Old Teck Ghee Primary, New Deyi Secondary) in Ang Mo Kio (a bus stop away from Central). Only problem bring your own food and drinks! :p

    Haha..how about next sunday? Erm that's the 5th of May I think. Getting close to AOTC. We need to get as many ppl to be interested in costuming, then it'd be more fun.

    :)

    Meesa no problem but scare the Charity Premiere tickets will get sold too this Sunday.

    BUT, if at Hereen again and sale start at 10am, we can meet in the afternoon. ;) My sis is back in UK so no problem. Her house also quite sparely furnished so lots of space to lay down the cloth and patterns. Got TV, VCDs Player and Radio for entertainment and one of the room is very clear (the room I used to do the sewing). Sewing machine, I'll bring it back to my house tomorrow but can bring it to my sis house next Sunday for our costuming sewing sessions.

    Anyone else want to come along?

    That's cool, DE, and if the tics are really sold on sunday morning, then I'd be there too, so we can meet up first before going. =)

    Delight and JediClare - You gals are doing costumes right? Can make it?

    So many people, so many different opinions . . .

    Some of us want to go to the Charity, some not but on May 16th itself, we will join forces and watch AOTC together. I'm waiting for my friend Shawn to say wherther he's going to organize the Costume Parade again this May 16th like he did in 1999. He got exam now.

    About tickets, no idea for now. Waiting for someone to give the lobang. :D

    Heehee not for various reasons:

    1) I haven't paint my helmet. Need 3-7 days to get this done and I need to find someone to help me cut the eye hole bigger with the PROPER tools. I paid a bomb (IMHO) for it okay. :p

    2) Use cheap Velvet for the outer cloak. Need to put a lining for it and improve the design.
    Wore it at Orchard (for awhile) and the cloak was flying open so many times.

    3) My inner robe a bit too long and want to cover up the slit at the side.

    4) Haven't bought the new eye piece from Azeem cause run out of funds (all kena channel toward the other costumes)

    5) Forcepike very simple. A family friend made the top recently and I'll paint it one of these days.

    And not fair if a Royal Guard win Planet Hollywood Costume Contest again, right? ;) Meesa want to show Singaporeans that some Singaporeans can create good costumes.

    TR252 out ;)

    Some random photos of TR252 can be found at Darth Eagle's Album under "Many Faces Of Darth Eagle".

    Must remember to get better pictures in full uniform soon. :p

    yeah DE, I agree with Luke that you can make good costumes..really admire you! Maybe you should start up a costuming school..haha :D

    I'll be going for the Charity Premiere and also on May16th. Well, for TPM the Charity tics were sold outside Heeren so we're just assuming it to be the same. The thing is, not many ppl on this forum will be going for the Charity Premiere me thinks~

    Probably can, but must get parental permission first. What to do, not old enough yet... [face_plain]

    Must be back home by evening. Have to watch the Star Wars TV programme. :D

    :)

    My friend Shawn said he may come as Vader on May 16th but he's having a bit of problem getting someone to make the bodysuit (out of vinyl-fake leather) the last time I heard.

    Some people may also convert his Boba into Jargo, but for Clone donno leh. I only know Singapore got 1 Stormtrooper (with a movie replica cast of the Stormtrooper Suit) but he seems to be IMA. That felllow may make/buy himself a new helmet and come as Clone Trooper, who knows. :eek:

    But i thought the clone trooper suit is slighlty different from the storm trooper in terms of the amour as well? So how's your costume coming along D.E? Are u planning to carry a Sniper riffle as well?

    You mean riding boots?

    Yup I guess so..since those are what the actors used. But I can't afford to buy those..

    and I realise my predicament: I don't know what kind of cloth to buy, dunno how much to buy and don't know how to sew. This is really bad..

    JaZzYjaZZ - Well, for cloth, you can try People's Park. Quite an assortment of cloth there. How to choose, what I did was as long as it looked like it and felt like how I thought it would feel, then it's close enough. :p It's hard to get the exact type of cloth, and anyway not all the cloth used for the Jedi are the same. There are a few thousand Jedi spread out throughout the galaxy what. :p

    There's something like cheesecloth there. The cloth I bought (for tunic) is from this shop beside 'Ah Bee Bee' or 'Ah Gee Gee'; something like that. It was originally $8/m, but the nice lady let me have $6/m because I was a student. ;) Try to look 'studently' or say it's for a school project or something. :D

    For the cloth for the brown robe, walk around and look for brown cloth. When you see a shop that has cloth that looks the right shade, and one of the shopkeepers is a lady who is very eager to sell you her cloth, then it's the shop I bought mine from. :D Got it for $6/m with some haggling. :p


    Boots, just wear army boots lor...that's what I'm going to wear. :p Can't bear to spend $100+ on riding boots. :D

    The areas surrounding Army Market (Beach Road) may have them (2 shops beside Army Market & some shops at Gold Mile Tower across the road). Unfortunately, Army Market is closed now and will open in 6 months' time. :( Another problem, now I only see new boots so be prepare to spent SG$60++ on them. Mine was OLD Unused Combat Boots so I got it for $25 and it is going to the cobbler to sew back on the soles (it came off partially).

    If you don't know where Army Market is, it's this Food Centre like People's Park Food Center (where you can get the cloths) opposite Golden Mile (where take buses to Malaysia) and way behind SIR.

    Another alternative may be Nee Soon Camp outside but I'm not sure if there got sell used/new boots.

    Or you can search for the boots at places like Far East Plaza, Lucky Plaza, City Plaza (Geylang) or even neighbourhood shops. Cost can vary from $50-$200 depending on design.
