Those shoes may or may not work, mid or high tops tend to work much better because your shin armor won't make it all the way down to a low top unless you do some modifications. I'd recommend the Starbury One if you can still find them somewhere.

I've thought about that and decided that I would extend the ankle of the shoes when I "redo" the sides and add in a little padding so it doesn't look TOO funny.

Trust me, you're going to need something extremely durable for your ankle when your shin armor comes down on them. I'd highly recommend finding a high top before you get too far.

Nik, when you do get you armor, let me know... I should have had the roto-cast machine going and my molds done by then for my set. And before I toss the resin into the mix i'd love to compare the blanks I make to yours.. I know the templates I have can work, I just doubt my skills.

Once I get my mando for here done, i'll look into an RC as well.. I just don't have the resources for PA, cash wise, but do have access to a couple years casting knowledge, and soon a roto-cast and vac-form facility.

NOTE: I am NOT asking toi mold the PA stuff... Just like I know some bucket makers have the MR boba to look at, i'd like to give the PA kit a look over to see if I missed any small details.

Good luck on this ner vod, and remember, you got my phone number if you need help.

Maybe I can do Ordo? I hear the Nulls were rather tall like me.

Nulls were more solid then normal clones. not taller. In the books Ordo as well as other Nulls, were under cover as normal meat cans. if they were taller, then they would have been spoted.

But you can make what ever costume you want. It would be cool to have some Arcs running around :mrgreen: (+ would go good with my Kal costume :mrgreen: )

Some NULLs/ARCs would be quite nice, I agree!

Wish I had the height to pull it off.. At 5'7" my only chance was Kal, and Rob did such a smash on him, i'd never trust myself attempting it.
