    That's me in the middle, TK-427 is the Stormtrooper and his brother in law is the Biker (he's not a member here).

    Fun time....

    If I'm not mistaken, the Biker's using either a DP or a Rubies helmet, without modifications.

    Still, not bad. :thumbsup

    Ah, ok. Can't really see the ears with the way the Rubies have a tendency to flare out. Still, Rubies can look really nice with some body modifications. If he hasn't, have your friend check out www.bikerscout.net . I think I saw a really great tutorial on modifying the Rubies helmet to look more screen-accurate.

    Also, I'm sorry if I came across as a knowitall (the bluntness of your response kinda hinted at that). When I said without modifications, I meant physical mods to reshape the body. Sorry again.

    It's no problem. It's just that the last time I gave advice, I got chewed out for it by a "vet" of the boards, saying I sounded like a knowitall.

    We all have a right to offer help and advice. If it is taken out of context all that needs to be done is work it out maturely.... :)

    We did. He PM'd me about it, paraphrased what I had said in another thread, and I made him eat his words when I gave the link to what I actually DID say, and it was nowhere close to what he claimed I had said. Didn't hear back from him since.

    You have to be careful what you say around here, and who you say it to, I've found.

    Yes, you absolutely do. Unfortunate but true.

    I think we are off the topic of the thread though. :)

    It was an annual fundraiser that the school has. They had a whole bunch of stuff going on. They had a booth set up for us where the kids could get their pictures taken with us for $3.00 and a digital print was supplied. All proceeds went to the school.

    Thanks for the compliment. We have put a lot of work into our costumes.

    I love doing these kinds of events. The looks on the kids' faces definitely makes the discomfort of the costume worthwhile. :thumbsup

    Nice job, guys. :D

    Nice couple of "snow" troopers you have there. :D

    DarthKahnt, what kind of saber you're holding? Is it custom build?

    cheers,

    LOL..... :)

    We really want a Snowtrooper but it isn't in the cards yet.

    The lightsaber is a Larbel with the detachable blade.

    I've said that to Rod several times, and he has said it to me too. Yes, I really would like to have one. Lord knows we have the winter climate to support one. We could get some excellent pics. :)
