Thanks. Yes, I wouldn't change anything on them.

This is all very impressive!! I just joined the 501st as a Cadet, so I'm new to the whole process. My plan is to create either a RoTJ or RoTS Royal Guard costume. Are there pros and cons to each? Also, I have zero experience with sewing, so what is the nest way to go about creating the robe and tunic? I see you mentioned having someone doing it for you. Are there members that do this kind of work?

As for the helmet, what did you start with to modify?

Thank you for any help you have to offer!

The RoTS robe has more openings in the robe so you get more ventilation and cooling. I bought my helmet and robes here: https://www.korbanth.com/

I got rid of my 3D printed pike. While I thought it was nice and light, the chrome paint was never hard enough even after months. I wrapped it in a towel, and it left indentions all over it.

Thank you for the advice!

Are those robes from that site one size fits all? I don’t see anywhere to select a size.

Sorry for all the questions, but are these the boots and gloves you got?

And out of curiosity, I see Imperial Boots has a guard set. What made you choose the vendor you went with over IB?

No, Kelly Jo Boyd takes your measurements and makes them.

yes on the boots, no on the gloves, but mine are the leather ones from the same shop

I wanted to do Revenge of the Sith and as far as I know Imperial Boots just makes the Return of the Jedi version.
