As promised...

Wire supported collar. Pulled cape down below neck as much as possible and wrapped it tight in a towel left overnight to train it into shape.

Today...

Hoody - can I ask how you made that Death Star background? I actually hope to make something like that myself next year but have no idea where to start. Your display looks unreal with it, great job!

I wish I could get the cape on mine lying as flat as that.
I folded the cape at the back and used some paper clips to hold it (another trick I learned here) and I also tucked some of the cape between the legs and stand. That kinda keeps it all in place and reduces the volume considerably. The rest is just futzed using the wires. Took me a few weeks playing with the damn thing though. It was the collar that was really annoying.

Shouldn't Lando be wearing bell bottoms? I think the shirt should have been a tad longer in the sleeves.
