    If I had a display room, I couldn't let anyone in it. Someone or something would break something. AND SO it sits in the workshop. And the occasional seasoning of dust adds to weathering of the completed costumes.

    Some of my random helmets and replicas are in a glass case, but it's not really a display room and it shares space with other glass cases with Superbowl and world series stuff.

    We've been thinking of a home theatre room with all our stuff displayed. We've been shooting ideas for the last 3 years. We have the same problem with finding good display cases like Arturo's. Can ya give us a hint? I don't like the fact that the ones from ikea are too shallow. They have great shelves for mounting on the wall, but we haven't seen any glass ones deep enough for helmets with a light source. Like the idea of the grid display too, but I am not sure it would go with the aesthetics of the theatre/kids with grabby hands. We're more for glass cases that lock We don't have cats, but would love for a glass case to fit a mannequin where the kiddies and their friends won't touch the stuff. We don't care much about action figurines but with the busts and artillery, we don't want the kiddies to handle. We have like 3 long showcases, but I like the tall tower/like ones. Tips and hints please

    How about putting the kids and cats inside a locking glass case?
    Then you can display all your stuff worry-free!

    One of my cats is smart enough to break out! *The other isn't!*

    Ikea has lots of shelves and cabinets of different sizes... ya just gotta look through their catalog. If you don't mind spending $$$ PotteryBarn has some great stuff too. (Look through their sale items or if you've got a store near you, their scratch & dent! ) PotteryBarn Kids and PotteryBarn Teens, as well as Crate & Barrel are other alternatives.

    Well, I had a shrine back when I lived on the hill, for most of 2005 as a final adeu with Sith and all. It looked totally cool at night when I fired up the MR lightsabers. I finally took down it after taking to much flak from then girlfriend Jessica, and other "dates", after I broke that off. I can't begin to tell you all how very lucky you are to have spouses that let you do this and support your fandom Makes me envious and I am not envious by nature LOL! Here are a few pics, plus a couple of pics of my current "display" of which I am hiding, I will spring the Star Wars thing on them latter....lol: Mind you all too, this was before CIII, before I had any clue about this costumimg stuff and subculture; so the next display I build will take over an entire room or basement and all my costumes will be mannequined!

















    Crying shame I have to hide my star wars passion like this, then lie about it? until... ?

    I was the convert...I don't know why...I was never a Star Wars fan really, just followed hubby's interest in costuming because of the creativity aspect.

    Thanks for the heads-up on Ikea. When I get enough cool stuff to display I'll definately get a couple of those. The prices are very reasonable too.

    Re: Your Star Wars display/room

    Once I move, I'm gonna have a 'room' as well-- as it stands now, I just pile stuff neatly on every available surface.

    I have a lot of Star Wars stuff but most of it is scattered. The only focused area I have is my Bossk collection. I have all my out of package figures on one shelf. All my in-package stuff is in boxes. I swear, I'm gonna get that room, then everything will be all displayed at once.

    Anyways, here's the 'Bossk Shelf':

    oh yes Bossk
    Probably the bounty hunter tied for me with the "cool factor"
    I never realized there was SOOOO many different figures

    What is the poster of????

    Re: Your Star Wars display/room

    The poster is actually for a Nintendo DS game called 'Freshly Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupee Land.' It's nothing Star Wars related.

    CuteLucca,

    Since you're such a huge Bossk fan, here's a Bossk from my neck of the woods.



    Stay safe,

    Tim.

    Very cool, Tim! I think I saw that Bossk when I was researching my own costume. Yours has the right height, at least... I'm just a short girl so my Bossk is tiny. :/

    It's a shame you aren't playing Call of Duty 4.


    Gettin' blow'd up would look real nice on a 130" screen.







    You must feel like "Bob" from those "enhancement" commercials.

    'Cause right now, I feel like the "other guy" with my 27" tv...

    Wow, amazing media room!

    I showed the pictures to my wife and she loved it! She said we should do something similar to the rec room in the new house we move into in a few months. So thanks for that Darth Flan!

    LOL
