2005 - September 2006)
Please scroll down for the newest update on this costume!
dinner evening in November 2005 Thomas Riedel spoke about a costume
project, which went since a long time already through his mind.
ENDOR REBEL SOLDIER -
that were his words. So, the foundation-stone for a special costume
project from the Star Wars universe was placed. Especially, because
here in Germany no parts are available for purchase. Darth Vader,
Jedi, Stormtrooper, X-Wing pilot....you can see everywhere - however,
only a few begin the ENDOR REBEL SOLDIER costume.It was fast clear
for us that we have to make the project to 100% by ourselves - and
straight that woke the enthusiasm in us. Ten complete costumes stood
on the building order. A long dinner evening with numerous discussions
was approaching for us. But at the conclusion we had already two
working groups and a finish date.
The working group in
Nuernberg under Thomas Riedel, Thomas Jantschke, Wladimir Blanar
and Daniel Schollerer was responsible for the special blaster rifle,
rifle suit-case, mines, puttees, cap and helmet ring.
The outpost Burgkunstadt
under Lothar Werner was responsible for the textiles (trousers,
jackets, shirts, gloves) as well as for the belt inclusive shoes
and the bandoleers.
To the Media Markt event
February 18, 2006 we wanted to get in any case one costume completely
- to the German Model Masters at the end of May 2006 should follow
Thus a project of the
unusual kind took its beginning!

Over the years we
modified the costume more and more until it matched the standards of
the international costuming club Rebel Legion.
