  1. Looks great! I'm curious how the paint will hold up in flexible areas like the belt.
  2. Armor parties are gatherings where people work on their armor together. They're helpful because you can ask questions and see what others have done. Sometimes you can also get access to tools you may not have like belt sanders. They're a great way to meet others in the area as well.
  3. I also know he's hard at work with a run of Revo Vader voice changers as well. It's been quite a while since the last run there.
  4. Welcome! I'm in McKinney as well. As others have mentioned, be sure to join the Star Garrison's Imperial Academy on Facebook. That's a good resource for all costumes and armor parties in the Garrison.
  5. I didn't wear one at first. Then I saw this picture from one of my first troops. I always wear one now. It just one of the details that bring it all together.
  6. Keep a couple of loose parts to make ABS paste. You'll eventually need some once you start trooping.
  7. The plane where I spent the most time getting my private rating.
  8. This is fantastic! The first picture was the one I used to explain to my wife what the 501st was all about. I joined shortly after. So glad to see her doing well.
  9. Info for the Wisconsin Garrison is at: http://www.501st.com/members/displayUnits.php#garrisons.
  10. I'l third the Meguiar's. Novus works really well too. Oddly enough, you can usually find it at the Container Store.
  11. The Stanley/Husky tote works great! Sometimes I have to use my wife's car and it won't fit the tote. For those times, an big rolling suitcase works well. Just keep the helmet out in a separate bag and all the armor pieces nest together pretty well. A couple of towels for protection and you're off!
  12. Those pads work great! They stick well with velcro and are easy to move around. It's also easy to adjust not just the height, but the forward/backward fit of the helmet.
  13. Trooping is awesome. Don't let the stories bring you down. For me, the bigger the better. It seems like the smaller kids parties are usually the more contentious, like the TK is substituting for a clown with balloons. Always have a handler and there's strength in numbers!
