Years ago, Chicago Force Costume Group used to meet at Lionel and Emma's Studio. (most of you know Lionel as "Old Ben" Kenobi and Emma as Aayla Secura).

Recently, while talking to Lionel and Emma...we decided that we missed those Sunday workshops and the chance to hang out and talk and work on costumes and Lionel volunteered the Studio for a costume workshop/armor party.



Date: March 29, 2009
Time: Noon to 5:00 PM
Place: Lionel and Emma's Studio - located in Chicago - just south of the Loop - please PM me for the address.


So....bring that project you are working on...

or.....for new people...
are you interested in a specific costume?
trying to pick a costume?

Maybe we can help...

HI, names tom I live by Joliet. I am very new to this site. I have a x-wing cosutme I been working on for a long time. I thought I was done, but now I dont think my flight suit is the correct one, if I want to join the rebel legion. my collar is not the wrap around one (I did put velcro on it to stick it together and make it stand up) also its a little wide in the legs and waist. I dont know how to sew and I am trying not to spend 120 bucks for the right one, at this time money is a little tight. I was hopeing I could fix this one. I was wondering if anyone at the workshop might be able to help. thanks for any info

I am the XO of the Trooper Detachment..
and I don't know a real lot about the X-Wing pilot costume..

a few things I do know is that
many of the pilots state that this is the way to go for the jumpsuit:

Have you tried submitting your costume for approval?

If it isn't 100% correct, the Pilot costume judge can probably point you in the right direction of what you need to fix.

Actually...
I think I will give Ed Cook a heads up to look at your photo and see what he thinks...


btw...
I live in Mokena...
which is a hop, skip and jump from you...

Very Happy

Did Ed give you a reference photo for the collar?

The collar can be fixed....I could probably do it but we would need fabric....
obviously...the same fabric...
can we steal fabric from the pant legs tucked inside the boot?

Are the legs maybe a little "extra long"?

I don't know if this is the best reference pic, but Trent took this one last spring of the flight suit when it was on display.

That could work...

Very Happy

I also asked Ed Cook to e-mail me a good shot of the neck too...
one that they like to use for reference...
hmmmm...
come to think of it...
my Star Wars Visual Dictionary I think has a good shot of Luke in X-Wing...

Well, the legs are not long, but I guess they are tuck in the boots so you wont see it anyway. but the more I look at my pic the more I can't stand how baggie my legs and waist are. last night I was looking on EBay and that CostumeBase had a flight suit with the collar and look like the right pockets. I think my suit needs way too much work, it might be better to just buy a new one. hopefully in a few weeks I be able to order it. thanks for all the info I really really appeciate it!

Well.....let me know what you decide...
and...

If you do go with Costume Base...
make sure to maybe ask some of the other Pilots who ordered theirs from them about the sizing...

Typically clothing made in Asian countries runs smaller...
