    Voice Amp?

    I just use an Aker amp, and use the neck strap like a belt and hide it under my hakima. Then I run the headset wire up the back of my armor and just hide the mike inside the bottom of my mask. I put the headset on after my balaclava and the mask elastic I have holds it to my head. The hood hides it otherwise since it's all black.

    Traitor Barriss

    My wife tried to submit for the Traitor Bariss and they wanted her to do it all in brown colored material. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Birthday Revan

    Dark Lord of the Sith, and Birthdays! Aren't the rest of you all jealous? You don't have birthday candle sabers! Made by a friend of mine from some photos from a fun shoot we did for my birthday today.
  4. I'm throwing this up in Off Topic since it refers to a 'good girl' in this case. My wife and I are looking to work up a Bastila Shan costume so we can pair up with myself as Revan when we troop. We have two issues: 1 - Neither of us have worked in the leather/pleather realm. She can sew well though. Is pleather a pain in the butt, and any recommendations on a good brand that approximates brown leather? 2 - Figuring out the layers/pattern. There are tons of reference shots at http://newsite.rebellegion.com/bastila-shan-knights-of-the-old-republic/ (albeit some are pretty poor due to game graphics) but I know some people out there have made this before. Anyone familiar with it, or know someone who is? We're not opposed to potentially getting outside assistance but so far the only option for that has turned out to be a cosplay vendor in China and I'm iffy on that. I posted asking on the Rebel forums, but there wasn't much response so I thought I'd try with the EU crew here! Thanks!

    Voice Amp

    I have the Anker amp and throat mic, but I haven't been able to find a 3.5 to 2.5 connector that works yet to join them up. They don't sell them locally in stores and the one I bought off amazon didn't cut it. I haven't actually gotten to try it yet. There is another guy in our group though that has it and seems to love it when he uses it, but he does a Stormtrooper. If I can ever find a good connector I will let you know how it goes.

    MWA chest and mask straps questions;

    The mask straps are pretty much whatever works to keep it in place, comfortable for you, and black. Once you have the Balaclava on I really never feel it there anyway. Same really with armor straps. Make sure they are black and whatever is comfortable to hold it in place. It'll be covered by the cloak and hood so no one will ever really see them anyway.

    Underclothing question;

    You'll just want to find a good shirt and add the tubing really somehow. I actually use a black long sleeve turtleneck and black corduroy pants under everything myself.

    Revan hood & cape question;

    Mine uses velcro to attach inside the chest plate. Normally my order is such: Hakima, Armor, Cloak, Hood. It can be a little awkward, but you can actually put on the whole thing solo with some practice. Mostly though I need someone to help adjust the hood once I've gotten everything else on to make sure it's straight even with the velcro piece in the hood to secure it to the mask.

    Dark Revan approved SL 7830

    Looks great. Always good to have more Revan's out there representing!

    SL-13377 Dawn Bright - Infinitys Kylo Ren

    Can I guess that it's easier to focus on the details since the material is probably easier to work with just being a more standard smooth black rather than the stuff going into movie Ren? It looks great though and can't wait to see how it looks all put together.

    Looking to do an Imperial Knight

    The Rebel Legion has a CRL for Imperial Knight. I'm not sure how that makes it for the 501st, but you could get in for sure over there

    Joliet Library Star Wars Parade

    Interesting to see who was in the parade. Vader minus helmet, Star Wars Rebels Vader? Darth Maul Stormtrooper? Was that early black armor Trooper supposed to be one of the new Death Troopers? Kudos to the sandpeople walking single file of course. Didn't expect to see Barf from Spaceballs in there. Got a few good FE costumes in there too! Also the second part of the video it looks like you picked up some new folks, and lost some from the first half!

    Matt The Radar Technician

    I'm not sure parodies count in this regard towards official approved costumes. That said, we've had someone down here who did a Matt costume, but it's not something they submitted for 501st approval. Just a 'for fun' costume to throw on at conventions.

    How did this go? Did someone get pictures?

    Detachment membership?

    It takes some time as the admins aren't often about. You can also try looking up the Flagship Eclipse on Facebook. That has stuff posted on it occasionally. There is a private group for Detachment members on FB as well but you need to friend someone who can invite.
