    I just met you guys at the toy and hobby show.

    My name is Merle and think that you all are into is pretty cool.

    I will need to get a costume and light saber at some point but I am looking forward to meeting you all and participating in events with you.

    Until next time,

    Merle

    Welcome, Merle!

    My name is Anna and I am the Secretary for the group. I troop as ANH Leia and am working on a few new Leia costumes. My husband AJ also participates but he is not on the Boards.

    Just so you know, a costume is NOT required. Join us for our next meeting and learn about all the fun things we have coming up. It is Sat the 23d- check out the meeting thread.

    Welcome to the group!!

    I studied theatre in College for a few semesters so I completely understand. Thanks for tossing me over the business card though.

    Word on the street was we had someone that could help me costume up. If someone can drop me that name via a PM on the system or via an email to Merle.walton@gmail.com I would appreciate it.

    Also what are we lacking? Where can I be useful currently? Someday, in the future, I would love to be Darth Vader I have a good deep James Earl Jones style voice though I know we have a Vader which is cool I would be able to be him if any vaders are busy. I don't mind being a heel. Etc.

    Thanks,

    Merle

    First, we are always looking for new friends. Everyone is encouraged to attend meetings and share ideas for event planning.

    Many events we appear at require a costume, otherwise a promoter would just grab some random fans to wear SW shirts.

    Non costumers are always helpful to answer questions at our fan table, escort costumers, run errands, keep a line in order, request donations, take pictures.

    Vader is a big investment. Mine took over 7 years to get where I am now. It can be done quickly, but it will set you back (potentially) a few grand if you do it right.

    We could use some Stormtroopers. Just found a supplier for around $500. Once done with the soft parts and gun, you could wrap it up and troop for under $700.
