    Ultrasabers Prophecy
    Feb 26, 2011

    Ultrasabers had the Prophecy model on sale for $75 and immediate delivery. Given that my Parks is dead, I impulsively order it. I am very happy I did. The blade is extremely bright. The saber is lighter than the Parks and doesn't drag my belt down. I modded it a little with o-rings to break up the look of the metal.

    Alpha Base members
    Apr 2, 2006

    Alpha Base is a Star Wars Rebel costuming group. www.alpha-base.org

    These are photos of the members in their costumes. There are more members, but I do not have photos yet. Some of those pictured here are also not yet official members of Rebel legion. They are labeled by their screen names (if they have one) in our message boards. At the end are some of the padawans and younglings affiliated. They cannot be members but they sometimes attend with their parents. At the very end are those members no longer active or who moved away.

    We are the Washington State chapter of the Rebel Legion www.rebellegion.com

    Dressing A Galaxy - The book
    Sep 21, 2005

    These are a few images as I opened the limited edition book for the first time. I had #781, signed by Trish Bigger. I decided it was a disappointment and sold it to another dedicated costumer who is more interested in Padme costumes.... I bought it in hopes of getting lots of detail on the Jedi costumes. While there are fabric swatches, there are only 2 sentences in the entire book with any information on the actual fabrics used. The only details on construction are what can be guessed at from the, admittedly, excellent photos. Most of my major questions went unanswered as the photos don't show enough. For the money, I would have thought there would be more details, since it is mostly serious costumers who will spend $350 on this book. I decided it made more sense for me just to have the $50 version

    I've edited the settings to allow anyone to download the full sized images (shot at 6.2 mp so 2-3 mb)

However the Star Wars presence wasn't as large as other years. I've placed the Star Wars photos all on the first page. The remaining pages have photos of other interesting costumes.

    ComicCon 2004 Sunday
    Jul 25, 2004

    Despite getting to bed so late, I awoke at 0800. Once PadmeAmanda was dressed in her handmaiden costume, I took formally posed photos of it for her records. Then we got to the Con about 1100. I was scheduled for 1200-1600 in the Lucas booth. I worked my shift and nearly went down with heat problems. Drank a lot of water once I got off and then some gatorade. Took a cool shower and felt much better. A friend came down from Orange County and we went out to dinner.

    ComicCon 2004 Saturday
    Jul 24, 2004

    The highlight of Saturday was Steve Sansweet's "Star Wars Extravaganza". It was in a hall that held 6700 people. As people were filing in an announcer kept reminding them to turn off cell phones, that photos weren't allowed, etc. My favorite "Con Moment" was when he added, "Please turn off your lightsabers during the video presentation". Ha! Lots of people had the electro-luminescent lightsaber blades that glow very brightly in the dark. Hence the request. But only at a Star Wars convention...!

    They showed lots of great footage from the filming of Ep III. We saw long scenes of the fierce lightsaber battle between Obi-Wan and Anakin.

    The VP for Marketing told us that the new DVD's of Ep IV-VI will have a 4th disc with content from the archives that "nobody has". It will have some featurettes, one of which will be the history of the lightsaber. It will have more character development and reveal some "secrets" about the characters.

    Carrie Fischer was a guest. She answered questions about some of the extra content added for the DVD.

    The 1st 20 Clone Wars cartoon series will come out on DVD but instead of being 5 minutes each they will have extra content making them 12 minutes each. This will take the story line right up to the beginning of Ep III. These will be released about Easter time 2005.

    Celebration III will be 21-24 April, 2005 in Indianapolis.

    The producer, Rick McCallum, came in from London to speak to this con. The surprise guest was Hayden Christianson. They showed film of him putting on the Vader costume. It actually gave me chills!

    And during the Q&A session, a Rebel Legion member ("Danakin") who has made an Ep III Anakin costume and whose appearance is very similar to Hayden's, was the first to step up to the mike to ask a questions. Hayden did a bit of a doubletake and quipped, "That's a good look". He was asked how long it took to get into and whether it was hot. He said it took 4.5 hours, which amazed us as we have friends who wear Vader costume and it only takes them about a half hour. And, duh, it IS a very HOT costume.

    Trailors for Ep III will be in theaters about November 2004.

    Rick was asked about whether Mace Windu will have a role in EP III (well, Samuel L. has already said in interviews that he has a satisfyingly spectacular death). Rick McCallum said....and this was a huge plot twist for me!....."Mace is the pivotal point that starts to turn this lad" (meaning the point that starts to turn Anakin to the Dark Side). Hmmm......

    And at the end of the presentation was what we all expected would happen.... Steve Sansweet revealed the title of Ep III to be Revenge of the Sith. The Tshirts went on sale immediately after the presenation.

    Another highlight of Saturday was the Masquarade. LadySonnet entered her spectacular hand embroidered Amidala gown from Ep I. Julie and PadmeAmanda made wonderful hand stamped velvet handmaiden costumes. The Maquarade is actually a formal costume contest. As I said above, the crowd was really tough. They didn't actually "boo" but they did an equivalent thing. Our friends did win "Most Beautiful". I didn't get a photo, but someone else did:

    ComicCon 2004 Friday - Star Wars Day!
    Jul 23, 2004

    Friday was rather a blur. It was Star Wars Day. I attended only one Panel which was an update on Fan Club activities. I took some photos of others in costume. I hung about the Rebel Legion booth. There are about 80,000 people in attendance and the air conditioning on the convention floor was not up to the job. So it was uncomfortably hot.

    On Friday night I attended the 501st-Rebel Legion-FanForce dinner. There were about 60 people. Some of the actors attended along with some Lucas staff.
