After more than two years of wanting this costume, we finally took some of the tax return money and purchased a Senate Guard helmet for my husband. It came a couple days ago. It will require some work, we got a "raw" helmet because it was about $100 cheaper. This way too, we can choose the color of paint to match the robes more closely. The "spine" is rather crooked, so we'll have to fix it, or create something new. The "lens" is just wrong, it should be black and a more rigid plastic, like sunglasses lenses.
If you will be commissioning me to sew a costume for you, be sure to see my Measurement Chart.
*Please note: My "sewing queue" is very full. As a result, I've had to place a "cap" on the list and will not be able to take new commissions until I am caught up. I expect it to be a year or more before I come to the end of my current queue. Thanks!
I am a stay-at-home-Mom to three wonderful kids, Benjamin, Anna, and Peter.
I sew costumes, mostly inspired by Star Wars, and I am making my own full-size R2-D2. I also draw and scrapbook, though those things are harder to do with little kids around (who are into EVERYTHING!)
