Babylon 5 Sources

Rick Silva
I am looking for either a pattern or a ready to use costume for a "Babylon 5 Ranger." Any assistance you can render would be appreciated.

He might want to hit up the resources on the South Bay Babylon 5 list.

(Subscribe via with message "subscribe" in BODY of message-- it's fairly low-traffic.) Or he could hit up one of the Web sites... I'd try the local list first.

I am interested in doing a Babylon 5 uniform and so I am looking for a pattern for an Eisenhower jacket.

Marjorie Wilser
Strikes me that Folkwear had a 'bomber' jacket... but I can't think of the pattern number nor it's official name. Sorry.

John - I don't know what an Eisenhower jacket is, but I found several sources for Babylon 5 costuming.

You may already know about the PEERS group. They sponsor a Babylon 5 party called the White Star Ball (used to be the Dark Star Ball). Pictures from the last ball are posted on the web showing guests in beautiful Babylon 5 costumes. I suggest you contact PEERS and find out how to get in touch with the people who attended these events. They should be able to tell you where they got their patterns and how they made their costumes.

The PEERS web page:

Or contact:
1453 Sixth Street
Alameda, CA 94501

I also recommend Uncomyn gifts. They make and sell Babylon 5 costumes. You can reach them at 1-888-862-6696. They have a web site with lots of info and hard to find Babylon 5 masks and things.

A great resource for all kinds of Babylon 5 info is on a web page at:

I also recommend doing a web search using a search engine like Yahoo under Babylon 5 costuming. The information out there is endless.

As far as the Eisenhower jacket, I would call Lacis in Berkeley at 510/843-7290.
Editor Note: Lacis has gone out of business since this message was posted.
They are a fantastic resource. I recommend talking to Katy. Tell them what you are looking for and ask if they know where you can get either the pattern or more info.

I hope this is useful.
