Full (?) list of my costumes….

Italicised for needing a webpage, strikethrough for long gone, links to pages if they have them. Mustget a few pages sorted to dump random photos in to.

None of these were purchased, all were made by me from scratch or from very basic pieces like shoes to cover, and the only props not built from scratch were modified toys (Mara and GG Leia). Not bad for self taught Gimpy McGimperson.
