Hm...the Dr. Who keys and pocket watch look like unauthorized stuff.  Also reading the contact us, about and FAQ sections make me wonder a bit.

OK.  Did some research on a replica props and costuming forum I belong to and those guys don't pull punches.  Everyone said utopiabase's stuff was worth the price and no one seemed to be complaining about being stiffed.  The general consensus was that it was not top of the line but a decent alternative for those that can't afford to shell out the big $$$.  What did you have in mind from there?

Thx for teh linx!
 
Um, I was wondering why they had Darth Maul costumes for so cheap.  I see the the material is light-weight like linen.  I was drawn by the Maul and Anakin costumes.

Since the real thing is military bedroll thickness wool you won't be happy with their SW costumes because you're a rennie.  If it isn't built to be worn every day for a full season of heavy use it's worthless.  Thankfully that's how the costume designers for the LotR films felt too which is why the costumes were are perfect.

Dude...if you want Jedi robes and stuff just talk to Odd.  She's got a hella workload so you won't see them immediately but they are worth the wait.

If you need something to hold you over in the mean time:

http://www.officialstarwarscostumes.com/9916223.html

Always read the full description.  Case in point: the "Official" replica is polyester.  Yuck.
