    and I wanted to say hello. I've been a Star Wars geek pretty much since birth (I was born in '81, so I grew up watching them. Started reading the books as soon as I discovered they existed. Spent most of my teenage years playing X-Wing and Dark Forces.) and I like to make stuff. Mostly prop lightsabers, but I've dabbled in chainmail and leatherwork and a few other things. Mostly just dabbling though. Hobbies like that aren't cheap, but I am. :) My latest project has been a set of Mandalorian armor. I'm just about done with the weapons for it, and about a quarter done with the armor itself.

    Anyhow, I hope I can make it to a meeting or two. I'm pretty busy most of the time, basically working two jobs, then adding extra coats of spraypaint to props when I get home from work at night. :p

    Welcome to the boards!
    Whereabouts in the Greater Rochester Area are you?

    We recently had a meeting so the next one probably won't be until late August.
    Hope it doesn't end up conflicting with your work schedules.

    Yeah, I saw on the site that I just missed the last meeting. D'oh. :p

    I'm about 10 miles to the south of Rochester, right around the corner from the little apartment complex I lived in until I was 5 or so. Funny how when I went back to look around, the giant swimming pool I fell into when I was little is suddenly small enough for me to jump from one side to the other...

    I must say, its nice being back in a place that actually has four seasons. And no giant cockroaches. And no more of those ugly palm fronds everywhere. :)

    Too bad that's coming up so soon... my hockey skates are grey with purple trim. They'd totally match the mando armor I'm working on. :p

    Uhm... up here the Red Wings are a baseball team. [face_whistling]

    Seriously though, if you are free that evening and are interested in volunteering for the 501st, let me know and I can likely get you free admission.
