Does any one know where I might be able to get a new pair of shin guards for the Geonosis battle arena outfit?

The ones I have are falling apart so I need a new pair but don't have the facilities to make any new ones.

Can any one think of anywhere that might sell them?

There was a seller on ebay doing the boots and you could buy the shins separately but I can't find them now.

I would look at buying some Caboots again but I don't need the boot so it would be a waste of money.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Sarah

I've been wondering about this too. I've been wanting to make this constume but I'm not good with crafts and didn't want to pay $300 to buy the boots.

I know Sonya from Sunrider used soccer shinguards and cut out the pattern. You could then cover them with leather/pleather. Or you could make the shape out of thick foamies and then cover them with leather/pleather. I have the Diaz boots which are not available anymore Sad

Mine fell apart too. You can make them out of leather. Here's a link to a picture of a pair I made.

That's right Rebecca. Here's a couple of pictures of them. I spliced two kids' shinguards for each one. Than I covered them in vinyl. They look great, IMO.





And my finished costume:
