My name is Jay and I’m super excited to be here. I’ve been a huge fan of the movies and just this year I decided to make my own stormtrooper outfit that I’ve always wanted. Unfortunately, not a lot of my girlfriends like SW and usually it’s just me getting super excited about it on my own so I don’t have a lot of people to share my excitement over SW. My BF does love SW but he's too shy to dress up and he's more of a "light Side" kind of guy, he's more of a Qui Gon Jinn or a Mace Windu person. I thought maybe making my own outfit and joining a group of like-minded people might help me "nerd" over my love for SW and more specifically over stormtroopers. Since the first time I saw SW I was obsessed with Stormtroopers, and when I saw that infamous stormtrooper bump his head on the top of the door opening I knew I was a stormtrooper (I'm kind of clumsy). Not really sure what I’m getting myself into but I’m super excited about it. Should have my costume done by fall, hoping to work on it all summer long. If everything goes well, I hope to move up the ranks to Tie Fighter (another costum I want to build) but I will be just as happy just moving up the ranks as a stormtrooper too.
