    Hi Guys,

    So in a month I'm going to the Secret Cinema Empire Strikes Back Event and I would like to go in costume. I'm looking for a cheaper option that won't break the bank while still looking fairly acceptable (I know that's a bit of a double Standard).

    My idea is to go for a Rebel Pilot costume such as this one:-

    My question is does anyone know of where I can find the chest box and leg straps for a decent price, or do you guys have any other ideas I could go for?

    Thanks,

    Dan.

    Hi,

    I know a eBay-shop called "Custom-Props" they have harness and chest boxes. They are based in Argentinia.

    Do like I did.
    Make the box from card stock or plasticard.
    1" webbing for the straps.

    Leg straps just get some 2" wide silver/grey or white webbing and make them.
    If you can't sew then glue should do fine.

    Check out www.rebellegion.com. There are people that do runs of those at times.
