i have done very make shift versions of her blue and gray slave outfit from I, her black corset dress from II, and her white battle outfit.

Sith? Really? SWEET! My younger brother will most likely want to get a photo with you. He's not too happy with the fact that I've refused to turn to the Dark Side.

But meh...cookies aren't so great. They're fattening too...XDD

lol!

See you there! I wish you luck with getting your costume completed!

Giant Alucard
06-24-2007, 12:31 PM
I have to do the sith since I'm 6'8 and already have the imposing stance ready, lol!!! And the costume shouldn't be a problem really, just finding a really good light saber that I like, since the good ones usually cost a pretty penny. But whats wrong with the Dark Side??? We're not all bad, and we def have better benefits!!

SIX EIGHT?!?!?! O_O

JEEZ!

lol! Hey, I never said there was anything wrong with the Dark Side...not directly, at least. XD
It'll still be fun taking pics at the con. lol! Have you found a good lightsaber yet? XD

Giant Alucard
06-26-2007, 01:09 PM
I have found quite a few nice ones actually. The thing is that the ones i happen to like are quite pricey (but isn't that always the case). I'll have the money, but i'm trying to think on if I whould get those, or get one of the cheaper ones and modify it with resins or plastic in order to get the look I desire out of it!

I don't think I'll be bringing as many SW costumes as I had originally planned on, but I still want to bring a Padme or two. I'm thinking Ep3 stuff.

That still will be really cool. I'm working on Jaina Solo right now. It'd be cool to get a photo with you, Grandma. XD;;
We could find a Leia costumer and take a photo of the Skywalker generation: Past, present and future.

^_^

Lady Skywalker
07-05-2007, 01:02 AM
That would be awsome! I'll let my friend know about the Jaina, she loves Jaina. You should also check out my female SW costuming website. (www. angelsofiego.com) if you wnat help with the costumes. I'll post something there for people to come here so we can set up a photoshoot of there seems to be more interest.

07-08-2007, 12:44 PM
Oh thank you so much!!

I'm so ecstatic right now! I just got fabric to start my costume and as soon as I get my old singer up and working I'll get started! (*dances around*) I can't wait! Dragon*Con is going to be brilliant!!!!! ^_^

That sounds like it's going to be awesome!!! I've found a Jacen and Tenel Ka costumers, and we'll be looking out for "Mom" and "Dad" to get a family photo. ^_^ It's going to be so much fun!!

I'm still working on my own little brother to cosplay as young Anakin Solo. But he's still being stubborn and saying no. Do any of you have any good methods of persuasion? XD;

Tenel Ka
07-31-2007, 11:27 PM
Is he still being stubborn about that? ;D

I think it would be great to have the Solo kids together for the first time~! I've never seen that happen at a con ( in fact I've only ever seen one Jacen and then one Anakin at another con >_< ) and it would be classic~

Only about a month left! ( And I have practically nothing done, like usual. D: )

Besides, I know the stories, he might be remmbering that Anakin was not quite right in the head in the early years. Esp. in the Ambush at Corellia book.

Hey girl! Didn't know you were on here too! (although common sense should have made it clear. Gah..stupid Dark Side fogging my brain. xD)

Yes, sadly little guy's not wanting to do it. I'm out of ideas. We've got our skit and everything ready to go, but he's all like "blah! I don't wanna have to mess with making a new costume."
Grr..

I can't wait! My Jedi boots came in the other day and they look AWESOME! I'll post photos as soon as I make more progress. ^_^;

Haha!

Like you'll be able to "maim" us when we're all together. ^_~

Anyway, I'll give those ermmm..."methods" a try. Although I'm not so sure Mom's going to be happy with me. I'll just point to the computer and say "the people on the internet told me to!" XDDD

Yeah I know. I'll get back to trying to tell him how monumental it will be. Hopefully that might help persuade a bit more too....^_^

Thanks you all!

Less than a month now!!!

You could offer to make the costume for him and just buy most of it (orange jumpsuit from the JJK books? Hehehe!)~ of course, you have your own costumes to work on! ;D

Your doubts are the result of flawed jedi training, The jedi seek to hold you back, let the dark side of the force free you. Your feelings do you justice, take your weapon...

I keep thinking of anikin skywalker.... grr

He proabaly wore corellian clothing
In this link (a little older than 13) he looks to be wearing corellian gear, later in the page tho hes got on what looks like a bespi outfit and then jedi robes, but theren ther are somemore corellian clothes there too.

So, I'm bringing my Jabba the Hutt...
It's about 6 feet wide, and I'll likely get asked by con security to go outside once it's fully unfurled, but, hey, it's worth a spin.

My boyfriend and I will be joining the ranks of random Jedi at some point during the convention. Hooray for finally having a sewing machine!

Actually, he'll have completely random jedi. I'll have Jocasta Nu, jedi archivist. Now to remember to sew my last panel...



6 foot wide Jabba? I look forward to seeing that!

Lady Skywalker
08-08-2007, 10:01 PM
A Jabba the Hutt?! That's awesome!!! I'll so wnat a picture with you in my metal bikini. In fact, I bet that Jamin would love to have you in the slave Leia photo shoot saturday at 2:30.

Tenel Ka
08-09-2007, 01:02 AM
I think I'll be wearing Legacy of the Force Tenel Ka (with Military!Sith Jacen Solo) on Friday and then Young Jedi Knights Tenel Ka on Sunday -- so if I see any SW (especially EU) characters either of those days, I will be stalking you for a picture! Just a friendly warning. Hehe~

Sorry guys, but doesn't look like i"ll be bringing any Padmes. JUst the slave Leia for nighttime going-ons. I'm devoting this con to mainly Lois Lane and Supergirl.

sakura-chan87
08-21-2007, 03:38 AM
Aww. :(

lol I still want to get a photo of me looking at you like you're nuts or something when I'm Jaina and you're in your slave Leia outfit. That'll be hilarious. XD

Lady Skywalker
08-21-2007, 10:58 PM
Omg, that woulda be hilarious! the whole "EW mom! How could you?!" look. lol

Now if only we had a Han Solo to look like he's just shrugging it off, lol

(*falls out of chair laughing*)

:D I know!! lol! I'll see if Jacen wants in on the photo too. That'd make it even funnier. XDDD
And we really should find a Han somewhere. There was a really good Han costumer last year, let's hope he's there again this year. lol!

But let me know what you all think! Pretty please? ^_^

Lady Skywalker
08-23-2007, 02:25 PM
I'm personally not the best person to critique Jaina, but from what I can tell it looks good. You're facial features definately look like her's!

By the way, I sent you a pm.

501st photoshoot is before the parade saturday morning, around 8:45 - parade staging area.
Rebel Legion photoshoot is Sunday morning at 11:30, tentatively at the Suntrust plaza.

Yep, go to rebellegion.com, and click "Join the Rebellion" at the top - that'll take you to a form to fill out about your costume :)

Elendriel
08-26-2007, 12:54 PM
awesome! :D *goes to site*

btw, are the 501st and Rebel Legion shoots the only Star Wars shoot opportunities or are we having a general Star Wars gathering as well?

Lady Skywalker
08-26-2007, 01:00 PM
Well there's also the slave Leia photo, but that's only for that costume. I don't about a general one yet.

And thank YOU Kell, for that wonderful information!

But since it said that my membership might take up to a week to process, will I still be able to go to the Rebel Legion meet-up? =/
I'll have both costumes complete and ready by then.
What's the story with how that is run?

HAHA! Jason, you're such an "emo boy." XDD Jedi are cool. Wake up dude. lol!

I have costumes for the Rebel Legion and the 501st, but I never get any reference quality photos that they seem to ask for. Maybe I can get some at the con this time...

Lady Skywalker
08-28-2007, 12:38 PM
Sakura: I would def reccomend going to meet up with them just so that you get to know them. I'll be running the table with my friend friday morning at 10am. HOwever, if you go on the forums, there should be a thread in the D*C section about getting costumes approved on the fast track for the con so that you can participate in RL events such as the parade or the group photo. If you have trouble locating it, let me know and I'll try to find it for you.
