Hello Everyone I would like to introduce myself my name is Shawn, I work with a bunch of celebrity look-alike's and I was offered a walk around gig but need a costume quick. If anyone would be willing to help me out I would appreciate it, I have been reading and researching the threads but time is not a friend right now so again I'm asking for some help heard a lot about the rebel Legion thought I would give it a try thanks in advance.

well, honestly, we put way too much effort into our outfits to rent or lend them out, especially to someone we don't know. Also, we cannot use our outfits for profit or self-gain, so you're kinda barking up the wrong tree.
If you just need something quick and dirty, I would suggest scouring Ebay.

The ability to buy, sell and trade are for members only... and only on certain forums.

If your interested in becoming a member we can help you with documentation, and advise.

For needing a costume fast you might want to go with Ebay. Some of the more accurate costumes can take years to put together... not to mention hundreds of dollars.


Sorry I don't have a better answer for yah.

As already mentioned, RL members cannot use their costumes for profit, so you taking a walk around "gig" being paid as Han Solo with a costume you own would make it where you couldnt be a member.

Just a note, but ultimately your decision Smile I'm glad some folks have pointed you to where you can buy items. Just dont be too upset with member here when they dont respond to just lend or sell you their costumes. They worked very hard on them and use them within the clubs rules, and to help their communities with out ever asking a dime.

As this forum is public and we have an agreement with Lucasfilms to not use our costumes for profit and to not post costume/armor makers websites publically, I'm going to lock this thread down. You can find plenty of information on building your own costumes by searching these forums and PMing folks directly. But for the protection of our members who do not use their costumes for profit in the event LFL happens on this thread, I want to prevent anyone from publically lending this guy a costume.
