A friend of mine and I both want to embark on this costume.

We know where to get the mask from.

Any advice on the rest?

Hands, saber, etc?

Thanks!

There are a few PLo Koons on the members page, you could try there first to see what they did. I don't know how much help I can be here except that it depends on which saber you want to tuse, he uses a different hilt and color in the films then he does in his first action figure.

I looked at them and there was a wide variety of variations. Some had hands, some hid their hands in their robe, some had some sort of latex hands.

The robes and the rest of the cloth parts look like standard jedi gear. The belt and boots the same.

The saber will be more difficult I think. Any recommendations there?

There are more than a few vendors that will make you a custom saber. It costs though, like http://mysite.verizon.net/resektwg/index.html

or even advanced light weaponry....

Getting into all of it won't be cheap, but when it's done, it'll rock...

Thanks for that link!

I don't mind spending that much. I spend that kind of cash on armor! :-)

Now, to find the hands.....

i am doing the same costume, I picked up the rubies mask which is good detail for something made by rubies but realized its WAY too big for me. I will be re sculpting a whole new mask to better fit my face, ill be sure to post progress pictures.

EDIT: also have to sculpt some hands too. should be a FUN time =P

Great! Thanks. Maybe you and I can work together on getting those hands done, since I will need a pair as well. I don't know anything about making those kind of things, but I can still help! :-)

That's a super cool idea you guys have about getting a Plo Koon outfit going. I want to put together an alien Jedi but am having difficulty finding a mask. I looked on e-bay and the only one I found I couldn't get due to funds, but now that I have the cash I can't find squat! The last store I seen a Don Post mask I wanted was in Indiana and they don't have a web site. Anyhow, I wish you lots of luck with your outfit and can't wait to see the pics!

What kind of mask are you looking for? I found lots of different ones.

Ki-Adi-Mundi
Admiral Ackbar
Evan Piel
Yoda
Etc.

also as soon as I move I will be taking custom orders on ANY props. masks, weapons anything. so if you have an idea of what you want but there isnt anything out there to buy let me know, the sooner you get me pictures the sooner i can draw up the designs so when I move ill be able to start work.

I'm looking for a Bith mask and hands, sorry I didn't put that in my last post.
The only thing I found recently on e-bay was someone selling 5 masks, 5 pair of hands , 5 band uniforms and 4 instruments based on ANH designs for 1,000 dollars. Too rich for my blood as good of a deal as it is. I searched the member archives and seen that nowhere in th RL do we have a Bith. So I thought it would be cool to make a Bith Jedi and call him Nandor Fodor.
