    i have this idea for a new introduction . how about we add a pic of our selfs to our introductions so when we meet we know who to look for. (example) when i went to the first meeting no one new who i was or what i look like. i sat there and tony was like who is that guy listening to our conversation. so by doing this make it very easy to identify. and if any body feels weird by putting there on line there already there with other events we did. nothing to deep just the same stuff you normally put when your describing with a pic of you.



    EXAMPLE

    Me, no doubt all squished since these boards are so old and creaky.

    My name is Luke

    I like to build Star Wars props and talk about how awesome the OT is and how completely awful the PT is.

    My hobby's: Right now I'm hopelessly into World Of Warcraft, great game, love it. I also collect 1/32 scale slot cars, build custom 1/6 scale figures and I also collect Machinen Kreiger ZBV3000 model kits from Japan.

    I got into Star Wars as soon as I saw it when it was released in the UK January 1978.

    I'm Tony. I'm 24. I live in Midlothian with my wife (and Richmond FanForce's current CR), Aimee.

    Thanks to Luke, I have also recently been over come with the addiction that is World of Warcraft...man, I can't believe it took me 4 years to actually play it! Other hobbies have taken a back seat since I decided I don't know how to budget and just throw money around on various props and costumes. I am an active member of the 501st (Garrison Tyranus of Virginia). Currently a Stormtrooper, but working on a Jango.

    I'm really not sure when I got into Star Wars. I kind of grew up with it, and was always a big fan.

    Hello there!

    We are John and Jean Mayes, and we are a happily married couple in Midlothian, VA.
    We have one child (John Jr) and John Sr. dragged Jean in to the world of Star Wars when they first met. Although John Sr. is the bigger fan, she is quickly appreciating the story and the amazement of the movies.

    [image=http://www.tk6829.com/fanforce/fanforceparty.jpg]

    We enjoy long walks on the beach, candles and...wait a sec. (WRONG FORUMS!)

    These are their current costumes:

    Darth Vader ROTJ Style (John Sr)

    Biker Scout (Jean) and Sandtrooper (John Sr)
    [image=http://www.tk6829.com/fanforce/6829and1554.jpg]


    As far as online stuff, Jean never really gets online - her life is just too busy.
    John however loves Call of Duty 4 (on PC) and tries to check in every couple of days.
    It has been a great experience joining FanForce and actually getting together with people with similar interests to chat and express our feelings about Star Wars.

    Hi my name is Rachael. I'm probably the youngest member here, me being 19.

    For me Star Wars started with a box of Trix cereal when I was just 13. There just happened to be a ticket in the box to go see Attack of the Clones for free. Well I hardly ever got to go to the movies back then and I had never heard of Star Wars before, but it looked awesome, so I begged until my dad gave in and I got to go see it. Star Wars captured my heart and I instantly fell in love with everything about it, even though at the time I pretty much didn't know anything about it. I was dazzled, and couldnt' stop talking about it, lol it drove my family crazy, esp when I started getting those action figures! lol I had to learn more about Star Wars. I began reading the novels going to the web sites and the databanks and reading everything I could find. I then started to roleplay Star Wars online and have done so now for years. I play as only one character, Shaak Ti, because I see alot of myself in her movtivations and characteristics. She's always been my favorite character.
    During my online adventures a person named Danny Vidal messaged me. We became good buddies. In short, with all that was going on in my life, I ended up living out here with his family. I am from FL.(omg I can never thank you enough man! I know I can be crazy. . .lol)I actually got to go to Star Wars weekends in 2006 and I got to meet Orli Shoshan there!! :D
    [image=http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y184/Jedi_Ray/IMG_0846.jpg]
    I joined the fanforce here in Richmond with Danny's help as well as the Rebel Legion and became fastly involved . . .like I only could have dreamed of doing so in FL because of my family. I'd have to say the best times and most wonderful moments of my life have been here within these last 6 months. I've come to meet the most coolest peeps in the galaxy! You guys!
    [image=http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y184/Jedi_Ray/12734721d8.jpg]
    I do the Jedi Knight costume but I'm really trying to get my hands on a Shaak Ti costume, and I will, just take a little more moolah and time.[image=http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y184/Jedi_Ray/TDS5SMALL.jpg]
    I enjoy Surfing, Coster Boarding, Blading, horseback riding, I love animals esp Reptiles, and all other kinds of awesome stuff. I like roller coasters. I'm a veggitarien, but I only am because I think its healthier for me. I like to write fanfiction. I love marshall arts, kendo and all that stuff. I like weapons and tech stuff.
    But most of all I love to hang out with friends and make new ones!! If you don't know me and you want to be my friend message me I can talk forever. . well that's what Danny said lol.

    Well, I am 32 and recently moved into Midlothian near Panera. As of right now, I am working about 10 hours a day and 6 days a week. I am sure there is a Beatles song in there somehwere.

    I fell in love with Star Wars in pre-school. I remember at the day care center the record version of the Mos Eisley cantina music by "Figrin D'an" and that being the most played music there to get us kids to get to sleep. I remember watching Star Wars in a re-release (back when it was common to have them released back into theaters) when I was a kid. Despite the family dog's addiction to chewing the feet off of the toys (how rich I could have been), I continued to collect.

    I enjoy anime, RPGs, video games (favorite being Star Wars Battlefront 1 and 2), and MST3K.

    I don't have costumes for Star Wars. I decided a while back to only persue one type of costuming and became an anime cosplayer.

    So, without any further adieu:

    If I had a chance to go to a convention with a Star Wars costume, it would be Dengar. Or some Fringe type.

    My name is Mason.

    I am 29,

    married with three kids(5,7,9).

    I live on Fort Lee, near Petersburg.

    I work at Bon Air JCC as a JCO.


    My mom says, I inherited my love of SW from her. I was born the same year the first SW movie came out. All of my kids are into SW, having watched the whole sage(including Clone Wars) countless times. I have have even got my wife into it....well she tolerates it because she knows SW is my thing. I have most of the SW books and a lot of the comic books/graphic novels. I bought an Xbox only because they get alot of exclusive SW titles like KOTOR, Republic Commando, and Jedi Academy. Empire at War on PC, is what I am currently playing. I enjoy talking about SW. im trying to get started on my galactic marine and a barc trooper. the GM is hard project but little by little im getting it. well thats all i can say about me.

    bye

    My name is Brandon. I'm 32 years old and live in the West End of Henrico County, near Hermitage (or is it Hermatige?). I've been in Richmond since I was 2, lived in Lynchburg with my grandfolks before that. I've been into Star Wars since I was a little one. My first Star Wars movie was Empire. I remember when Episode I came out and I was getting ready to go camp out in line for tickets, I asked dad, just out of curiosity, if I made him take me to Star Wars a lot when I was a kid. His answer was "Oh God yes, you made me take you to those dang movies every Saturday until they weren't in theaters anymore." I really started getting into it once I graduated high school (I went to Fork Union Military Academy, so we had no Star Wars toys up there), and I've been collecting ever since. I've lived in an apartment with my girlfriend for around a year now. We have two kitties named Anakin and Kitty (very adventurous name, I know), and three parakeets that are Green, White, and Purple, so, those are their names. I work for a health insurance company (at least until the Gov't takes over healthcare, then I'm unemployed....). In my spare time, I enjoy Star Wars (Duh), Music (mostly punk and hip-hop), NASCAR (Go #31!!), New York Yankees Baseball, and Video Games (mostly racing games... Nascar, Formula One). So far, I've met Danny and Rachael off this board, and they were both super cool, so I'm looking forward to meeting more of you :)

    I can be reached at xbax2003@yahoo.com, or my super secret work email, but you'll have to email me at Yahoo to get that one.

    Man, turns out, I don't have anywhere to host my photos. So, if you want to see me, check out http://www.myspace.com/gorusty2, which I probably could have used to link the photos, but I'm sure Myspace would have made you login there anyways.

    Me and the wife......all squished! lol

    Im 32 years old and live in Henrico Co. I work at the Rappahannock Regional Jail in Stafford and the gas prices are killing me. :) Like most little boys I fell in love with Star Wars instantly and my dad even saw Episode 4 100 times at the theatre! I guess it's a genetic thing. At the moment I have small collection of Star Wars collectibles but I love what little I have. My wife isnt as big of a fan as I am but she supports my inner child. Again, I hear this is a great community and look forward to getting to know everyone.

    Hi.

    I'm Luke.

    This is me.

    No, I don't have that mohawk anymore.

    I used to be on these forums a bit. But, due to my age and my father not signing the permission slip, I could not attend any meetings. However! I am now 18 and am back.

    I don't really remember what got me into Star Wars. Of course 4 5 and 6 are my favorites. Uh, other than that I read a lot of the EU. My favorite book is Star by Star because of it's brutality.

    I'm into all kinds of music, and currently am attending John Tyler.

    My name is Krista. I was first truly introduced into the lovely world geekery when I went to Dragon Con with some of my friends from high school. I have always dabbled in geekery but Dragon Con has really brought it out.
    I then dragged my boyfriend Brandon off to Dragon Con where he promptly became engrossed in the idea of making and wearing costumes. His Tusken Raider looks great, especially since he had never really done much crafting previously.
