    Yes. It's early, but I like to get my costume together early; especially since I might have to get a lightsaber by that time and I think the cheapest way is to make one myself. The reason I am asking is because I have been Aragorn for four years now, and I don't know about you guys, but I'm thinking it's time for a change. So now, I'm thinking Star Wars. So here's who I'm thinking of being.

    Anakin
    Luke
    Han Solo
    Obi Wan (If I could ever grow a beard)

    What do you guys think?

    Ya, after four years, it's time for a change. :D Although I must say you make an excellent Aragorn.

    Anyway, if you could do the beard, I'd go for Obi Wan, if I were you. Second choice would definitely be Luke. :)

    I think Luke would be the best choice, cause you'll need a long time to grow a beard! lol

    No, but it's also the way you look, you need a more baby face to play Anakin, you're face is in my opinion too short for han and he also looks a bit older and yeah you need darker hair and Obi-Wan's hair is also much longer if we talk about the one of ep II, and the one of ep III looks pretty old. So in my opinion you look the most like Luke.

    yeah, if you want to choose a cosytume based on looks: then go Luke ala ROTJ. your haircut is similar.

    if you want to go based on easiness: i've found that Han Solo costumes can be pieced together from clothing found at Army-Navy Surplus stores. get some marine dress pants with a stripe. buy some kind of squad vest. you can even construct a reasonable facsimile of his blaster holster from various belts and holsters usually found at Army surplus stores. Find one that sells police issue belts and holsters and you are all set.

    find a colorless long sleeve dress shirt at a Marshall's and you are all set.

    If i didn't already have a good Darth Maul costume, I'd do Han. My hair is similar to his in ANH. and I still have my Hasbro blaster in my paintball duffle. Just needs a paint job.

    yeah, if you go with A New Hope Luke, his costume is pretty easy to recreate using a karate gi from a martial arts supplier.

    yeah, do it for me. since I can't go as Han. let me know if you want any tips as I have been researching this for a while now.

    the guy i know who makes the Solo blaster holster is done making them for a while. gonna try and adapt my Darth Maul costume into a generic dark jedi costume.
