    I really didn't feel there was a problem with the way our props were handled at C4. As long as someone was always at the booth, I felt safe with my props there; no one seemed to grab them without asking. Just to be on the safer side, plexiglass cases would be simple and easy to assemble.

    Actually, what Braks was thinking was of the actual "dent" much like what Goro did for the display stand for his gold Boba statue. But that looks cool Matt!! I think I need like a huge one to go all the way across my windshield in back

    How about instead of having the props sitting on the table they be behind the table on display? That way they'd be safe from prying fingers and still visible enough to draw interest.

    We here in FL have come up with a very good solution to the people touching things problem that didn't cost much. We just got a couple of long thin sheets of clear acrylic and some metal brackets and screwed the brackets to the plastic and then stood them up in front of the props and what not. Think of it like a sneeze guard at the salad bar. It was cheap and very effictive. Plus they are light weight and easy to transport.

    Check this pic for what I am talking about:

    That idea seems the best.

    On another subject other than props..........

    How bout

    Name Tags!!!!!
    Much like the cool silver imperial/rebel ones, not sure which they were but im sure someone knows what im talking about.

    The name tag could be like the chest display on boba with our real names on top and our board names on bottom?


    And possibly (if anyone doesnt care too much about straying from costumes)
    Some sort of tdh patch we could put on our armor much like a clan or the 50lst patches?

    I like the plexi-shield idea Mark. Makes sense and it's cheap and lightweight.

    As for the badges, I know that Damien Metz from Las Vegas makes the 501st ones. They're laser etched and really awesome. I love mine!

    Talk to Damien Metz if you need badges made. He's doing them for the 501st Legion, the Rebel Legion, the R2D2 builders Group. They are professionally done and look great. Design something and he can make it, and he won't kill you with a price.

    It seems like this is no longer a forum, and almost turning into a costume club.

    How about just some knees that don't break?

    Seriously, having the badges, plexiglass, higher stands for Mirax and Graeme's images, and additional stickers are the main items.




    Of course TDH temporary tatoos would be cool.
