In case you wondered...

The 501st Legion receives a lot of costume requests at this time of year. For the record, the guys DO NOT lend or rent out their costumes. The costumes are ridiculously expensive, and the guys (and gals) put a lot of time, money, and effort into customizing their costumes and fitting them to themselves. They are not available for borrowing or renting. Now, if you happen to know a guy personally, and he is willing to let you wear his costume, that's one thing. But in general, their costumes are not up for grabs, especially by strangers.

YAY!!! Thank you for posting a picture :) I showed it to my husband. (I'm assuming that's Ruf's costume. I remember you saying he was working on the helmet.) What other costumes has he made? Did he build one for you? Maybe I need to check out the website.

Yes, that's Ruf in costume. That's his old helmet, though. His new one is far from being finished. He bought a new one because he says the old one is too big and makes him look like a bobble head.

I have no costumes. I'm not into dressing up. The most I do is wear a Star Wars or 501st Legion t-shirt.

His website is pretty cool, IMO. However, he hasn't updated it in almost a year. He does intend to put his new helmet up on it when he finishes with it. He just hasn't had a lot of time lately.
