    I'll be running around on Saturday in my Luke ROTJ costume, so if anyone else will be in their ROTJ gear, hopefully we can get some pix together.

    I wanna to go! :)

    I just don't have a costume, and I don't want to go without one!



    I don't want to make one myself, I have no skill in that department.

    I want to buy one, CHEAP... Please HELP, PLEASE!!! :(

    Not sure you can find that help AcrossTheStarsBaby From what I know the places that make SW costumes are no longer taking orders that can be completed by C2. Your best bet would be to bring as many pictures as you can to a local seamstress. They maybe able to help you. You could try and make one yourself. Check the Costuming and props forum for help making one..

    I'll be there in costume too. :) I'm currently making Padme's picnic dress form AOTC. (The one she wore on the cover of Vanity Fair) I'm entering it in the contest, so I'll probably only wear it on Sunday. I'd love to wear it Saturday too, but I'd hate for something accidental to happen to it, like a rip or a spill of something. :(

    Obi-Dawn,
    I don't blame you for not wanting anything to happen to your costume before the Costume Call on Sunday. Unfortunately for me, I wasn't able to get Monday off from work so I'm stuck leaving on Sunday and will probably miss most of the Sunday festivities. I'll be running around in costume most of the of Saturday so if you do decide to wear your Padme dress, I'll have to get some pictures of you. I'm hoping there will still be tons of folks running around on Saturday in costume because I'm bringing loads of film! I mean, how often does something this cool happen where you're surrounded by this many Star Wars fans!

    I'm going in Pademe's Rainbow Dress from AOTC.(I just have to finish it in time) That is also going to be my entry in the costume contest.
    But Obi-Dawn is right! I don't wnat to ruin my costume entry, so I may change my mind and wear Pademe's Battle outfit from TPM. (I made that one for TPM midnight showing!)

    For those of us who will be running around in costume on Saturday, would you be up for meeting somewhere (we can decide on a time and place over the next few weeks) and getting some group shots? I think it would be cool to get some Classic Trilogy characters together for some photos and then some Prequel character shots, plus a combination. I won't be at the Con for very long on Sunday since I have to leave for the East Coast earlier than I would have liked so I'll probably miss the Costume Call. Bummer! I just want to make sure I get as many shots of folks in costume (plus EVERYTHING ELSE that will be happening there!) as I can. If anyone's interested, lets' chat...

    I think group pictures are both going to be extremely easy and extremely impossible. There are going to be HUNDREDS of people in costume. You will never get them all in the same spot, even if you do seperate into prequel/classic.

    Just out the DRAGON CON webpages and you see what I mean. There were about 100 troopers there, and that wasnt even a SW event. I predict we will get AT LEAST triple that, and very likely up to 400 troopers alone. Since jedi robes are cheaper and can be made yourself, we will see at least 300 of them too.

    Other predictions:
    20 Vaders
    10 Mauls
    5 Emporers
    50 Lukes
    50 Leias
    30 Hans
    20 Amidalas
    30 Imperial officers
    5 Jawas
    5 Dookus
    10 Tuskens

    And Maybe, JUST MAYBE even a Ki Adi Mundi, Greedo, and I forgot, about 20 Mara Jades.

    Is there a lens big enough?

    I'm going to be there on Sat in full-out Aurra Sing gear. I'd really like to get a new pair of boots before C2 though.

    Wait! Hold up! Change of costume! I'm going to be there in Padme's Tatooine blue embroidered dress from Forbidden Love. Aha...two circles are complete...many more embroidered circles to go!

    I'm going in Jedi garb at some point. Handbuilt lightsaber with an EL blade I'm ordering. Costume consists of: Black flight suit, black boots, dark green sash and vest thing (Luke ROTJ, his was gray), and a black cloak. I have a light cloak, but I am just starting work on a better one.

    I'd very much like to do Padme's white battle outfit from AOTC, anyone have good shots of this or advice? I tried the link on the first page, but that site is gone. Thanks!
