thanks

it took a couple of months of practice to get it, and we are still far from perfect, we have done it about 6 different events and we keep changing it a little hopefully making it look better each time.

it consists of 6 small seqences then in between we free play so every performance is slightly different and i hope this makes it look like we are reacting to the weapon as you would a real fight rather than knowing every move that is coming

Thanks alot. We used UltraSabers (http://www.ultrasabers.com/) for every fight and they held up really well, until that day. Right after the first fight BOTH of our sabers popped their tips, and we had the discovery world staff scrambling to helps us fix them before the next duel. Although they did break, they have done very well up until that point. Also, they look great and bright for having just one LED bulb.

Sweet! Cool You really reenacted the ANH duel ... kinda at least. I didn't remember children crying "Obi-Wan!". xD

Your costume looks stunning in the video too! Smile

Fantastic guys ..

well done.

Just out of curiosity ... i thought that the 501st and Rl ... were banned form doing lightsaber fights these days.....

Was that ban lifted? or does it only effect certain events....

again fantastic
