Re: Hi, Need ROTS Belt...

You might want to try the sithlord detachment forums on the 501st boards. There are several posts on there just for belts.

Re: where to purchase vader costume pieces?

What has changed on the robe requirements? Last I read, it was to be made of wool and silk lined with proper collar and chain, depending on the vader you are going for.

Re: where to purchase vader costume pieces?

Out of the entire costume, i ended up keeping only the hard pieces. Unfortunately the robes and suit do not fit my 6'6" frame and had to get those custom ordered. Considering what i paid, it was still a good purchase.

deduct costs of our costumes on taxes?

Often wondered if our costume expenses woukd be tax deductible since the 501st troops for charity. Considering some of the members have spent thousands of dollars, it would help off ser some of the costs. Not sure if this comes up a lot but i am new to all of this.
