Vader boots height needed

I have a pair of Chippawa motorcycle boots that I need to add height too. I would like to not do the "frankenvader" but I would like to add something to the outside to increase height. Is there anyone here who has a solution? I went today to the shoe repair guy and he was gone on an appointment unti...

I am interested in carpooling also. ZOD, would there be a spot for me along with Ripcode and Michelle? Certainly would make gas fare a lot cheaper.

Thanks!

Re: Armor Party March 26th

I have been trying to work out a plan so that I can come to this. I do have a prior commitment in Detroit the same day--my Mom's dance competition. The other issue is that Mom does not know when her dance times are until a few days before-(I guess this is tradition?) How long is this party going on?...

Re: My costume pics WIP

I have posted the updates on my photobucket. Sorry for the way they turned out. My friend accidently loaded the pic's sideways and I haven't the heart to ask him to re-do them or in other words-complain. I have fixed some of them. These are WITHOUT doing any mod's! The mask I borrowed from my basic ...

Voice amp/breathing sounds needed

I ventured over to Radio Shack again today and cannot find a voice amp system. I am looking for something that would amp the breathing sound of Vader. Also, possibly do some voices. What system works? I found Lumpy's old thread of suggesting R. Shack's #277-1008c(10w or 12w speakers), could not find...

Re: body suit needs bulk

Can also buy a cooling vest as well. Shawn Payne used to use one with his Vader And now I do :wink: It's good for about 2 hours (and would add bulk) but then it's just more weight. :thumbs: If you're interested, I can look up the website for you, but plan on it running about $200 for a vest and set...

If I put Vader's belt on it will fall off. I found the batman costume top, since its also black, I could cut it up ...

Re: body suit needs bulk

Thanks much! I will forgo the potato chips for bulk-(thanks from above) and resort to the turtleneck suggestion. This way my arteries won't suffer. LOL I also saw that a Vader from Europe had on a head wrap of some sort. He put it on before he put the helmet on. Maybe to keep his hair out of his eye...
