Hi guys,

I recently completed an Emperor's Royal Guard costume for my wife so I thought I'd share some pics of it here.

For the outer robe I decided to go with the doube slit ROTS look instead of the sling over one shoulder ROTJ look. It's just more maneuverable.





The force pike is a modified golf ball retriever. I cut the basket off, put in a pen top as the tip, glued some studs and finally glued a sink knob to the bottom of the handle.







Hope you guys like.

Nice cossie. Whenever I see one of these I half expect a Cylon eye to go 'wom wom' across the visor. :lol

Very nice costume. What helmet did you use? Is that an Altmans or a repainted Don Post? It looks great.

Its a fiberglass recast of a DP that I found on Ebay. The paint job is absolutely fantastic.

I'd say it would be fine for the 501st. Looks great to me, but I am not the LMO either. ;)

Just a head's up... my wife's application to join the 501st with this costume was approved about a month ago. I'm planning to follow suit once my ESB Vader's complete.

I'm bidding on an Altmanns Guard bust at the moment that does have some chips in the paint etc. Any one any idea what type of Red paint i should be looking for to repair it?

:love sweeeet. Im gonna have to modify my DP royal gaurd one of these days. Tell me, did you put in a hose so she can breathe, or drill holes or a fan or something? I read somewhere that its tough to breathe in, Ive only worn mine just to show people I had one, never for more then like 20 seconds.

First time she tried it on, it got very claustrophobic for her. After a while, she's fine. She trooped in it for a full hour once and didn't really have any difficulty with it on. The fact that the lower part of the helmet flared to allow some breathing space also helps.

Stores in Malaysia have winter clothing departments? :)
