    Mine too, how comfortable would that be?
    They have some fake stuff but it tends to streach when it gets warm.

    Wedge Plushie would like to remind you all that the most comfortable thing in the world is a simple flight suit. No equipment, just the suit

    Yeah, but the bright orange can be a little harsh on the eyes of the innocent bystanders...

    Actually the Tabbards are made out of Vinyl. You can tell because it doesn't quite have the same properties of leather and it just doesn't look the same.

    And this is a good thing, because vinyl is cheap and leather is not. :D

    I think any 100% natural fabric is easy to dye, even better when it's going darker.
    What are you thinking, Chocolate color or black?

    looks pretty similar, doesn't it?

    This may sound like heresy, but howzabout non-SW stuff? Anybody got any plans?

    Me and a couple friends had talked about doing scale Godzilla monster costumes (just like in the old skool films) and making random appearances throughout Starfest next year just to get into mock battles.

    :D

    I think it would RULE.

    That sounds awesome!!!!

    Well, if I ever turn into svelt creature ( [face_laugh] like that's gonna happen :p ), I wouldn't mind doing a Buck Rogers Pilot's Uniform. :eek: [face_blush] But the likelihood is slim and none, so I guess the answer is now, nothing non-SW related

    Oo! And Rachel and I were planning on doing Peacekeeper costumes from Farscape, too. We still gotta finish up our Klingon gear, too.

    I'm doing my Lady Death costume :D But instead of a sword I'm going to have a Hilt :D
    I have the Gladreil dress. Juff wants to do Judge Dread costumes. That's about the only thing I have thought of. Oh yeah & my Ren Faire dress.

    Oooo...Judge Dredd. I'd like to see that.

    Catwoman...I'd *really* like to see THAT. ;) :D

    And Buck Rogers...I got that confused with Battlestar Galactica. Which one is the pilot's outfit?

    That kind of looks like Padame's white outfit, the helmet looks big on her. That means Jennifer you would have to have one big helmet to make it look big on you.

    Did that sound mean? I didn't mean for it too, can't change what I said now, all that typing would go to waste :D

    Thanks Kim... I needed that... :p And it's not my fat head that I'm worried about for that costume [face_blush] So, I'll probably never do one of those, it's just a dream :(

    Erin Grey in white lycra. [face_love]

    One that I've been trying to put together for a couple of years is the Battlestar Galactica Warrior's uniform.

    JP -- Don't always need eBay on that one. I have a few links on not just where to get the jackets, but also the blasters, too. No word on the helmet, though. One of my friends that's real into BSG is trying to track down affordable ones.
