Shortly after we started dating, the beau made a Star Wars Rebel Trooper Uniform complete with blaster and helmet but he's never gotten to wear it. His attendance at both conventions I attended last year was usurped by either prepping for a kart race or actually participating in kart races. This year, however, he will debuting his uniform at Awesome Con DC in May, Lord willing and the creek don't rise.

I will not be in coordinating Star Wars costume for Awesome Con as I'm working on Flame Princess v2. However, I am considering ordering a suit of Stormtrooper armor from a Star Wars costumer with whom the beau has a friendly Rebel-v-Imperial rivalry. The beau is, obviously, thrilled by the idea and is hopeful that we could make the armor adjustable enough for either of us to wear it even though I'm a little short for a Stormtrooper. He's even started working on a Stormtrooper blaster. The main reason that I want the armor, though, is for wearing when the beau completes his (dun dun DUUUUUN) original series Star Trek Redshirt uniform. That coordination gives me the giggles.

Just as a suggestion for something less spendy and/or time intensive as a 501st-level of stormtrooper armor.

It is pretty damn adorable, that's for sure. And I was cruising the 501st's costume resource page yesterday. Damn, that's hard core! I really have no interest in trying to be that realistic. "Good enough" is good enough for me.

Some creatively decorated pantyhose and a t-tunic and boots and you could be a Twi'lek http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Twi%27lek

Oh! Now that's a pretty cool idea!

(And I'm so sorry for the late reply; LJ never sent me a notice about your comment.)

My "hope I can get it done" costume for this year will be a mix of Batman and this paso doble dress. Anchoring the skirt/cape on the utility belt and attaching the gloves to a bolero.
