    Hi :) I went to a convention with my second DV costume. This is not as good as my display anyway it's ok for costuming.
    It was my first time with this costume I was very happy, I also met Dave Prowse.
    I was standing just on his left, He said hi and was happy, it was the same thing for me.

    OH MY GOD :confused That is VERY cool, so many SW characters in one place at the same time.

    you look great in your costume, well done :)

    It's cool to see Vader (Prowse) and Maul (Parks) there at the same time too. I just wish GL had used Maul more in the movies, I would've loved to see Vader have to fight Maul for the Emperor's top spot.

    Anyway, I digress, those are some great pics you have there :)

    Cheers,

    Kraig

    Great Vader - very classic looking.

    About the woman from lost - I was just thinking the same thing when I scrolled down and read your post. Any info on her connection to SW or this event?

    Thanks

    Also, I believe the guy standing next to Dave Prowse is NOT Parks.....it is Mathew Wood, General Grevious's voice if I'm not mistaken. However, I've been known to make mistakes.............from time to time. ;)

    Thanks everyone :) This SF convention called "studio-polis 2"was in France last week.
    There was the French + Belgium & German 501 ST.
    It wasn't only about Star Wars.
    Well the actors were Huggy Bear (Antonio Fargs) , + Mira Furlan (from Lost & babylon ) + Mary Oyaya (luminara unduli in AOTC & ROTS) + Kenny Baker + Dave Prowse + Billy Dee Williams (he wasn't on the pic but I've seen him)

    WOW, nice Vader you got there. Really cool looking... AND... you're taller than the other Vader... nice. :)

    But, whatever happened to the widows peak area of the dome? It looks broken off. :eek

    And THIS is the pose you have to have you mannequin in... that's just so cool.

    Thanks :) NoHumorMan, The widows peak was like that when I bought this helmet...may be later I'll buy another better helmet.
    Well about the pose on my display I think It will be difficult on my mannequin because It's very strong...so anyway i'll think about something new.
