    Guys,

    I just finished my Fett and i'm hooked on props! I want to build a nice darth vader costume. I looked on ebay but I know there are better props out there. Any tips? recommendations? I need everything! Helmet, robes, belts, etc.

    Regards,

    Victor

    if you are gonna get addicted to this fun hobby - try to avoid ebay at all costs. Unless its someone you know off this or similiar boards.

    the key to any cossie? research, research, research. Be it specialist or just plain ole Google.

    try these

    I know its a real pain, new forum, new people to meet etc
    but you will be surprised to see quite a number of familiar faces.

    be prepared to spend as much on a Vader as a Fett

    Have to agree with Heatshock: check out those forums to get the best info, and sometimes good deals.
