So, this crazy idea started bubbling over spring and summer, and I tried talking some other Danes into it during Legoland and after, and somehow I also talked myself into doing it, so... yeah, we are forming a senate guard group in DK.
I currently have roughly 33 meters of blue velvet in my room, which should account for at least 10 guards. And the current group of interested people are somewhere between 6 to 9, so I even have a little extra.
The idea is to do the plumed senate guards. I already have a contact who are willing to make a helmet cast for us and is also designing the riffle to go with it. (You can also have the force pike with the costume). So currently I'm getting fabric swatches and matching them to my velvet. So far I've found some satisfying satin lining for the cloak, but nothing for the shirt and pants, so we might end up dying some fabric to match. I'll probably buy the satin this week or the next so everything for the cloak is there and ready.
I count on the actual work to start next year; right now I'm researching and gathering materials. Helmet won't be done before the next year anyway, so no rush.

I'll try to remember to update this as there is anything to update. For the time being this will most likely be silent.
