    Again, I have a Darth Sidious Costume, very good quality, and a Dark Jedi costume. TIE pilot is on hold but I'm hoping I can get it done someday.

    At least I'll get my Imperial hat, I was measured for it last weekend at Dland.

    :)

    Of course now my hair is not regulation.

    :(

    I have my Jedi outfit (similar to Qui-Gon Jinn) including Jedi boots, robes, and saber. I have many other Star Wars costume as well; much of Princess Leia's wardrobe and a set of Imperials. Along the same line, Marian Ravenwood's outfits from Indiana Jones. If we need to count the rest (others costumes) include V, Trek, and Logan's Run... I think that is about it and covers most Sci-Fi outfits. We won't count the rest. :)

    2 versions of generic Jedi robes, etc. That's it, Star Wars-wise.

    Other random stuff: Frodo costume, Frodo orc armor, pirate duds with spiffy coat, Kaylee costume from Firefly.

    Pretty lame, eh? Not much stuff.

    Wow. That brings back memories. V was my favorite tv show back when I was like 10 or something.

    I was just thinking the other day that I didn't really feel any appeal for working on new costumes, aside from re-designing and redoing the Goa'uld essemble... but then I watched the Sci-fi Friday preview show last night, and saw some interesting possibilities. I'll have to get a closer look when the episodes actually air.

    I didn't want to admit I had a Visitor Costume, as it no longer fits. But it didn't fit well even back then, the ah, inseam was a little high. Okay, it's a jumpsuit and was too short for me, so when I sat down my voice would get real squeaky.

    Been thinking about selling it forever, it was made from the same materials as the film made ones, but every time I do I get all nostalgic and put it away again. Besides, the glasses are scratched if I could find them, and without the glasses, it's just not... complete.

    And you know how Sid gets about things being complete.

    I remember when V was all the rage, I made up a lizard skin appliance and put it in a gift exchange. Of course the one who got it was a non-fan, and had no idea what it was. She held it up like she would a dead possum and said, "Ewww, what IS this?"
