New York City Comic Con 2010!! (Pic Heavy)
« on: October 12, 2010, 11:54:06 PM »
Hey Guys! It's been a while since I've posted anything but I've been hard at work getting my costumes and my crews costumes ready for this years NYCC and BACC here in NYC! Well the cons have come and gone and they were truly a ton of fun! The crowds reaction to my group and our get ups was amazing! It's been said that there were even more costumed people here at NYCC than in SDCC!! :o Never the less I don't wanna overload the servers here with all of the pics we got this year and I don't know how many of you or if any of you went this year but I met some nice folk from the 501st and Rebel Legion both of which I plan on joining up with soon. So without further a due here are some cool shots:

Anakin Skywalker: Me
Darth Talon: My sister
Expanded Uni Jedi Master: A Good buddy of mine
Han Solo: Another good buddy of mine

A big shout out to the artisans over at Legendary Costume Works who made all of the fabric parts of both my Anakin Skywalker costumes, the rest was provided by many various and talented folks. I know a few people on here have been looking for a good reliable source for high qaulity costumes and all I can say is go check out Legendary Costume Works or Lightspeed imports (a Star Wars Branch of LCW)! They're the best out there IMHO.

And on a side note for those of you knowledgeable about Darth Talon and her attire, I know our version isn't completely cannon but we kept it as close as we could while still keeping in mind the cool NYC weather and Rabid Fanboys of NYCC. :P

Anyways I hope you all like! And maybe I'll see some of you there next year. :)

Nice photos, were the sith guys people you met there or friends? I like the clone wars armour. How was New York? I have never been to any of the comic cons (im English) but one day i would like to take the trip over the pond and go to one just not sure whether to go to San Diego or one of the others



Trainers ARE cool

WoW... you did an awesome job on this.  :o I was wanting to run two costumes for some events coming up, one as Vader (the usual) and one as sith Anakin.
I had all but given up hope on the Anakin after putting much funds in the Vader suit. Then I saw this post, lets see what can I sell, my watch, saber, etc, etc.
That is a really well put together costume, where did you get the glove by the way? That does not look like the one selling for 15-35 dollars all over the net.
Anyways, props for your attention to detail.  :)

Great pictures! Your costume - especially the robe looks superb! And there is some kind of similarity between you and movie Anakin Christensen. The costume seems to work. ;)

Thanks guys!

@ Wallcrawler- NYCC is amazing, I live right around the corner it feels from NYC so I go there often but the con was really really cool, one day you should take a trip over! The armor I made and have since upgraded since those pics, it's thicker. Darh Talon (Twi'lek) is my sister and Darth Maladi (other red Sith) is a friend. Both are EU Legacy era Characters.  :)

@ Invader- Thank you, I'm a big fan of the Character and have a been slowing upgrading the suit as time went on, trying to get ever detail right. Doing a Vader suit and An Anakin suit will run you up money wise if you aim for good quality but if you can do it go for it!  ;) The glove certainly is not the store bought one but a custom glove made by the great leather workers over at Custom Props.

@ MiSha- Thank you! :D

Only the gloves are from Custom-Props

The robe is from another artisan who's name escapes me at the moment but the rest of the fabric parts and leather are from Legendary Costume Works.
