    When your ready to make the TK let me know, I can put you in touch with a few female TK's. TK armor is a whole other creature then the armor I'm working on. I could never wear that much plastic for fear I would just roast to death in it! [face_laugh]

    Look at the bright side...the TK suit is great if you need to shed a few extra pounds; you can just sweat it off in your very own personally contained steam room! :D

    ...Thinking about it...I could do with one of those! [face_whistling]

    You can find decent armor at a lower cost, but if you want the best of the best in TK armor, then yeah you'll be paying through the nose. Don't go to ebay for armor either, it's not always the best in detail and they will try to charge you alot for it.

    Do you know how long along this guy is in making armor? Is he casting his own molds?

    You know you could talk to the local 501s Garrison out there and see who they can recommend in case this fellow doesn't come through for you.


    I just love how a thread about Rebel Pilots turned into TK armor talk. =D=

    We kind of have problems with 501st here in the UK, I won't go into detail but communication isn't one of their strongest area's Maleficant. Needless to say we are going to be following their guidlines for costume accuracey.

    Well I'm 501st on this side of the pond so if you hit a brick wall when it comes to Imperial costumes and the local garrison isn't helping out, talk to me and I'll see what my own Imperial connections can work up.

    Alot of people over here are easily finding TK armor.

    I'm not getting on a plane with you! :p

    "Thank you for flying Plummet-Airways. This is your Captain speaking, hic! Our destination today is somewhere with bright flashing lights, and plenty of nudie-bars, cruising at an altitude in the region between 2 inches and 50,000 feet, but hopefully somewhere around the mile-high region...Oooooh, look how high we are! The people look just like ants...oh, wait, hic! They are ants; we aren't off the ground yet! Oh, you know what, **** it, let's break out the duty free! What does this button do? Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!" :D

    V, I may look at getting you some in-roads to the garrison separate to talking to the leaders at the moment.

    A guy I work with turns out to be joining up at the moment, and he informs me that there are about 15 in the midlands area. They are getting together for a drink and stuff soon, and I've been invited along. I could let you know about it, perhaps get you invited as well. We need to break down the sexist wall that this group seem to have put up.

    Interestingly, there is a new thread on the public access area of the UKG boards that indicates they are about to accept a female TK for trooping duties. Hmmm.

    The only requirement for membership is "ownership" of a costume celebrating the Imperial characters from the Star Wars films or its expanded universe.

    In that case then I could get in with my Isard Costume, like that american bloke said, It doesnt HAVE to be from the films.
