    well, if it was made to wear i don't see why it wouldn't be accepted.

    I couldn't find a definitive height for him online, but it looks like it was at least 7 feet?

    so. Given that you have the height to play with proportions you could get an alright costume if you were already tall and skinny.

    Especially if you used the rig idea for the clamping hands.


    This is one of those things like the dark trooper i'd like to see get done by at least one person. I don't see how the 501st couldn't accept it if it was a wearable costume that looked good.


    I'm still rooting for you

    I'm sure if they let you use a unitard you could still pull off a grievous somehow...

    Re: IG-88 Anyone?

    THanks GCN I was thinking it was becasue he was a droid.
    I thought really hard about this and actually I wanted to try an IG-88 before but if it is possible, it is way to hard for me. Looking at the Ref pic the problems I see is that the arms and legs are super thin and that the torso is inlined with the outser leg so you can have no hips whatso ever. Now if you can find a way around that then I guess it could work. Maybe a fat IG is the way to go.

    Also, does anyone know off han if droids are allowed in the 501st at all? I have never seen the black version of the C-3PO and my friend and hopefully later I will have a working mouse droid. So are droid liked by the empire?

    There is nothing that says 501st members can't be a droid. It just has to be the right droid. Owning a mouse droid won't get you in the 501st, since that's not a costume you can wear. 4-LOM is acceptable. Any human-wearable costume (ie one of the 3PO clones) seen as working for the Empire (or probably even the Seperatists) would be acceptable, although it would have to go through the approval process. GCN is correct that IG-88 is not a 501st costume. HOWEVER, that does not mean it can't BECOME one. It is a screen canon, "bad guy" character. That makes it automatically approvable IF you make a screen accurate version, submit it to the GML, and then to the LMO. The catch is, making it SCREEN ACCURATE. Due to the body shape of IG-88, I doubt that's even possible. You might be able to make a cool static display, one where the head moves and such, but as a costume? Extremely difficult. I have seen a Grevious costume before, and it was well done, but it was the "two arms" Grevious, wearing a cloak to hide the person inside. And I do not believe that is 501st approved either.

    I've seen Thomas' Durge costume. I like it very much. What I meant was, Durge can be done many times over and still be different and still be unmistakably "Durge". We've seen different versions of Durge so it's a costume to me that you may never get bored of.

    Forgive my rushed post, I was a little busy at the time.

    Re: IG-88 Anyone?

    Just wondering, I have heard from some members that droids are not allowed. I guess it depeneds who you ask but I see no reason why they wouldn't (especially if you are wearing it and it looks good). I actually had a debate a whle ago about a bith in the 501with some garrison members. Some peopel were for it, others weren't. Basically it ended up as email one of the big guys for approving DZ and make some good claims and see what happens. I would love to do a bith but just need to find a mask wether 501st, Rebel, or neither. Well good luck on the IG project and hope you do it wether it is accepted or not. Also if you do get it all good, submit anyways just to see. Cause even if it isn't, its still a very cool suit or at least an awesome display prop.
    Cheers!

    I will try to make this as screen accurate as possible. Like I said before, and I will say it again, it will be an extremely uncomfortable costume but I believe it can be done!

    I would just like to see an accurate IG88 build up done.



    How cool of a Photo-op would that be?

    Awesome! I was just thinking I would love to make an IG-88 costume for my brother. He's really tall and skinny. I still think it might look a bit bulky... in the arms and legs particularly. Its a great idea though.

    I'd say get an Asimo, tear off the casings, and build the hardware into the IG-88 frame. Work out the control systems later.

    The costume might come out better if you listened to some of IG88's music while you worked on it.

    IG88 Music

    The 1st album is free too. I am new to this forum but I like it a lot.

    and I do troop with him and the battledroid,they both dismantle for transport ,at gigs they become a photo op and serve as a support prop for the guys and gals in armour,kinda bridges the gap between actual costumes and the props display.

    Someone may have mentioned it above and I only barely scanned the posts but check Skaught's IG-88 out from CV. He also has head kits to get you started.

    Re: IG-88 Anyone?

    i think you could do an IG88 but the arms and legs would need to be puppet like, in the way that c3p0 was in the new trilogy. just wear a black leotard and make a rig that atatches to your anms and legs then it will mirror your actions perfectly. It will take some engineering but totally doable.
