We actually had a question about submission (I'm Amy's husband- helping her out with the build and submission). The pictures from the event weren't the best unfortunately. They are probably good enough to show the detail of the costume but we wanted to take better pics for her profile page. Is it better to submit and get approved now and then send in better pics for her profile page or just wait? Any advice is appreciated, after taking our time putting the costume together we wanted better pics but the lighting at the hotel wasn't the best so we are going to repaint her one day in the near future and retake the pics with natural lighting.

P.S. - I added some pictures of the costume details without the body paint to Amy's WIP thread to get input: http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=43338

Both of us look forward to trooping with you and the rest of the Carolina members. Jada was able to see Amy in her costume yesterday and told us to mention to her when we submit so she could advise the judges, we're just waiting to see if we should wait or not.

Jada and Al can give you the best advice when it comes to submission. As far as the lighting with the pics. Don't look too bad on the monitor Im using.

I would get a close up picture of the items of the costume. Think thats required for submission.

Im currently in the process of reworking mine to be considered formal Obi Wan Ep III.

Generally speaking, con pics are not allowed for costume submission.

The best thing to do is to take your time and take all the required shots under good lighting.

The only problem would be the lighting. Atleast the photos are taken with a bare wall in the background with nothing going on in the back. Think that was the reason for not using con or event photos for your submission photos.

Also make sure no badges are visible if you are planning to submit some of those. I did submit event photos on mine.. but they were labled as event along with the other required photos.

I took mine in natural light outside in front of a garage door

Thanks gentlemen, we weren't going to submit the pics from the convention, just the ones of me by myself. We took pictures in the hotel room but the lighting was very yellow and made the paint color look bad. We out the better ones up in my Jedi thread but most we didn't want to use because they came out bad. We included the convention pics for feedback because the colors were better We'll get better pictures with natural light.

My mother-in-law made a padawan costume for my 5 yr old. He'll be joining my husband (Darth Vader) and I to some events to join in the family fun. We're going to Stellarcon next weekend and he'll be debuting with us. He's very excited to have a "real costume" like mommy and daddy.
