Below are images links to sketches from my journal and progress photos of my interpretation of the Emperor Reborn.
It was destine to happen. This is as I had foreseen. I was a Star Wars kid and now I am a Star Wars adult. In the summer of 2001, my pal Emilyshowed me a light sabre prop that she had turned on a metal lathe and outfitted with an Electro-luminescent blade. I was duly impressed with her craftsmanship. When Emily invited me to the Star Wars Celebration II, I was determined to appear in my own Star Wars regalia.
Of all the possible characters and creatures in the Star Wars universe, I liked the Emperor most. (His sense of sardonic humour appeals to my dark side.) But the dark, accessoriless, twisted old man that was Emperor Palpatine did not possess a flare that I could get excited about. So I turned to the SW Expanded Universe to find Dark Horse Comic’s Clone Emperor. Young, tall, redheaded, and crazy. Prescription fit to my personality.
Images of the Clone Emperor costume in action and many others can be seen in my growing collection of convention costume galleries:
