Reporting for duty

Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

 

My name is Luke. I live near Houston, but I am currently stationed on the Planet Tatooine (well, really it's Afghanistan, but I can see the similarities). I am scheduled to redeploy in the next couple of weeks, and I am looking to join the 501st Star Garrison. A while back I started looking into stormtroopers costumes because my son wanted us to dress up for Halloween. I had no idea how complicated it can get. I started off one of those annoying people looking for a place to buy a full suit. As I read more about it, I decided I wanted to build a suit because, well, how cool is that to put together your own stormtrooper costume. As I continued to read on the internet, I discovered the 501st and the charity work they do.  After 18 months in Afghanistan, I had been thinking about doing more in my community when I returned. What cooler way to do good in the community then doing so in a stormtrooper costume? So, here I am making the plunge, trying to decide what armor to purchase and hoping to meet some cool people, like minded people interested in spreading some goodwill.

 

So for armor, I am contemplating purchasing an armor kit from Authenticprops (AP). I also looked at ATA, but there production times were pretty far out. I am still trying to figure out how the costume pieces together. I've watched a few youtube videos, but I still don't have it figured in my noggin yet. I can't wait to get my armor and get home and start tinkering with it.

 

I really look forward to getting to know y'all on here, and I appreciate all the help y'all can provide as I am sure I will have a lot of dumb questions as I move forward. 

 

Nice to virtually meet everyone!

Luke

Luke I want to hook you up with armor with an AP set. Holler at me when you can. I'm a former Texan also. Wife is from Houston.

Howdy, Luke!  Welcome (preemptively) to Star Garrison!  Stay safe over on Tatooine - I hear it's a wretched hive or somesuch.  

 

Feel free to shoot me a pm anytime about your armor or if you need some local contacts in the garrison.  We're always looking for more TKs in the Lone Star state!

 

AP is a good kit and you'll be pleased.  

 

And welcome to FISD!!  It's almost like being at an armor party 24/7/365.  :)

Thanks ZacMuleer. I have my armor in the mail. Should be arriving any day now. Can't wait to escape this desert wasteland and start putting it together. I may just take you up on the help, once I start assembly.
