I'm working on a Dark Empire and Luke Jedi costume. I generally keep my hair short, so I was probably going to purchase a wig. I know I'll have to take it to a stylist and have them cut and style it.

Does anyone have or know of a very nice quality wig that is the correct color and of similar style?

Thanks!

You should talk to RFTom. He has a great wig. It's part synthetic and part human hair. When he wears it, no one suspects it's a wig.

Thanks Phyllis. The only problem with Dark Empire Luke is that he's too bad to be Rebel Legion and too iconic to be 501st. But it'll be a cool costume to have for non-formal events.

Always make a costume that you like first...
since you already have formal costumes for formal events (that we know are FEW and far between)..
it makes sense to also have costumes that interest you ...and that you like..

lol I've thought about that. If it wasn't for the other two, I'd do it. It's on the list.

Thanks for the offer. I've got my name down for an orange MonCal suit when those become available. Once he starts making them, I'll start putting it together.

I have been following this thread as I'm starting my Luke Skywalker, ANH-Death Star Escape costume. I need short hair as it gets hot in our
bakery. I think a wig for me is the only way to go.

I'm in the same boat with the Dark Empire Luke. I like the Dave Dorman cover art better than the actual inside story design. There aren't enough reference materials to show the full costume. But like you said, for cons and stuff, it's fun to have anyway, so I went ahead with it........





Best of luck!!!

Are you going to Celebration 6? If so, I'll try to make a point to say hi!

no mate, I'm an Aussie & I can't make it over there. I did go to Dragon Con last year, that was amazing !!

That wig is really good, I guess it was quite expensive ?
