    Hi all. I just wanted to introduce my self. I am in Nashua. Been a star wars fan forever. In 05 I made a Jedi costume And dressed up the whole fam in star wars costumes for Halloween. I also made 2 saber hilts. one for me and a half size for my son. I,m also working on a slave Leia Bikini for my wife. (it needs some help) I've been wanting to look around for anything going on around this area and haven't found any till now. Ive been reading the boards and it looks like I've missed some fun things. I guess i just spent so much time on my costume I wanna play dress up.:D I'm also interested in stormtrooper costumes too. Id like to get involved with some of the happenings around the area if possible too. Of cource that family life can meke it a bit hard at times.[face_tired]

    thanx

    Andy,

    Welcome! I'm Dan. I'm new as well, and I'm from Merrimack. That's cool that you're including the family in your fandom, I'm lucky enough to also have a wife that's interested in SW. We went to C3 together, and put a SW movie on at night as we're going to bed.

    My AIM name is IronMaidenBDP if you ever want to chat with a fellow noob!

    I guess my biggest question at this point is what to expect at the meeting. Do I bring the whole fam? Do I need to bring anything?
    Oh and clearance sale? No fair I just spent all my money on an alternator. My collection is real slim. I have my jedi costume which I made with completely the wrong material. The 2 sabers I made for my son and I and a master replicas vadar force fx saber. Oh and a couple figures.
    Ive always been a fan of star wars but i think when my son really got into it and we did the costumes for Halloween it just planted itself in my head. I'm into building models. Sadly Ive just got my snow speeder but I plan to build other things. (wifey loves the AT-AT) but I love building props. I really want to do more sabers. And I have a bunch of pvc and thinking about trying a blaster. On a side note I always wanted to put on the armor. Ever since I first saw pictures of the 501st I thought thats gata be cool. Of course at 5'4" I would hear a very famous line. "Aren't you a little short for a storm trooper"
    Well i hope my ramblings gave ya a bit more insight of who I am.

    Hope to C ya all soon.

    Hello,

    Let's see, what well you get out of one of our meetings.........HUUuuuummmmmmmmmmmm..??????

    Well first off most of the time we have meeting for just the guy's/girl. Us adults. lol We do have family meeting as well from time to time. A matter a fact the July meeting was a family meeting and cookout. Most everyone in the group had kids so we do thing with them all the time. But for the most part it our once a month exscape. lol It's our time to just kinda be kids agian for a couple hours. lol So let's see... what do we do ?????

    I guess a little of EVERYTHING! We talk Star wars for one. DUH! We plan group outings. We go on toy runs. Those are sometime the funnest. We all just pill in a car and go to EVERY store you can name and some you can not and find toys! We have meeting were we work on moldels and work on the mouse droid. We have had book reviews in the past. We play Star Wars games on the big screen.

    We have made paper ships, had a meeting to build light sabers. Just about anything Star Wars. We show off picture from any cons we may have been to like C1,C2,C3,C4 the Rose bowl parade. You name it !! We can do it. I remember one time we had a coloring contest. Yes, YES we did.

    Oh and one more thing.... WE EAT!! Sometime the person hosting it cooks. Sometimes it take out. But we all way have something to eat. So there you have it. We do try to start out the meetings out right. We cover old news & new news. We take care or any outstand business. We are pretty good at that stuff first than after it all Star Wars.

    So I do hope this helps you out a little more. As far as building light saber you mentioned we can help there as well. I know a couple of use have made some in the past. I've made them from paper rolls to toilet parts. lol We could ever make that one of the things we do at an up coming meeting. Good idea!

    Ok then till next time ........... :)

    SeeYa,
    TK
