    Sep 15, 2006, 6:59 PM - TIE Fighter Plot #1

    Any hints or ideas on a TIE Fighter Piolt outfit. My initial idea is to purchase a black air force flight suit and then add the chest box and hoses. This ones doesn't seem too difficult. Here's my helmet:

    The guys on Omegawing will provide you with lots of information. There's also a site called "The Barnyard" http://tatooine.fortunecity.com/swam...tie-pilot.html for low budget star wars costumes.

    The basic parts of this costume are as follows:
    Helmet
    Chestbox (I recommend moncal ~$70)
    1 1/4" vaccum hoses Cut to 18"(I used a RIGID extension hose comes in a small box $20 home depot)
    Flightsuit with Imperial cog patches(Or skygunbro sells an excellent suit)
    Imperial emblem belt (You can get the basic parts from tandyleather)
    Boots(No lace boots, I use East German Boots)
    Gloves(Black gauntlet style fencer gloves ebay $20)

    Here's some pics from my 1 man troop for the OT DVD & LEGO 2 release at the Sam Goody's in Key West on 12 September. Enjoy or laugh, whatever. The bucket is just a Rubies, but it's being replace soon with a DP standard.
