    Well, Since I messed up somehow and posted this wrong yesterday...This is to get to know each other since we haven't switched to the other boards, and since we have some new people.

    This is where you can tell us what your interested in (collecting, costuming, whatever)
    Where you're from.

    Whatever you like.

    (Remember these are public boards, so post accordingly)

    Thanks

    Instead of locking, I decided to change the thread to this:

    So, I'll start.

    I am Bacon.
    I live outside of Conway, but currently I spend most of my time "crashing" at other members
    houses...)Long long story.....

    I like costuming. I'm just learning how to sew and I really like it. (So far) I've made a couple of Jedi costumes and a "Winter Padme" from Clone wars.

    I really want to make an "Endor Leia" costume...so I can shoot our president (Just for fun....)

    I have a special place in my heart for the freinds I have made from the "Line Party" and this is the greatest bunch of Star Wars fans you could ever get to know and call your friends.

    My favorite Star Wars character is Obi-Wan.

    I have 6 dogs, a Parrot, 2 ferrets, and more cats than I care to count. The strays bring their friends over to eat. (I guess they figure the more the merrier....)

    I am currently the secretary/treasurer for our little group...

    I am too educated for my own good and I'm still in college (where I've been off and on for the past 14 years) I am currently working on a phD in History.

    I am a sales rep for Este' Lauder.

    Thats about it.

    Next....

    This was way back on the third page...So, since we have some newbies...Thought I'd bump it up so they can post on it and see the old posts.

    This way we can all know each other better and play well with others...

    This lil thread didn't see much action I guess... Thanks for reviving it, Bacon! I'll be a Wookiee's furry uncle that I'd missed it [face_laugh]

    My login is Kynstar (SW name Kynstar Lanster)

    I was born in AR but raised in GA and OK. Presently live in Jacksonville, near the AFB (Air Force Base).

    My hobbies consist of reading, writing (fanfic), hiking, camping, fishing, (bow) hunting, horseback riding, gardening, cooking, going to movies. Animals are my fave thing as well. (besides Star Wars of course! And I do like Star Trek, so for those who believe it isn't possible to like both...unfortunately it is [face_laugh]). I collect a lot of dragon and wolf items; a stuff animal nut 8-} which I can't help myself sometimes. [face_laugh]

    A lot of folks I met here during the 'line party', but a few I met prior. It has been a blast being a member of the AGR (and now 327th and GAR). I look forward to meeting folks who are members of these organizations that I haven't met as of yet. Always great to put a face to a name!

    My favorite SW characters (yes...I can not juz say one for it wouldn't be fair to the other characters that I like hehehe) are: 1) Count Dooku/Darth Tyranus (as if some of you couldn't guess that? :eek:) 2) Qui-Gon Jinn 3) Obi-Wan Kenobi (mainly Ep II but I also liked Sir Alec's Obi too :D ) 4) Palpatine (like who couldn't like the genius behind the whole thing?? [face_devil]) 5) Quinlain Vos (why? Because I've followed his journeys thru out the Darkhorse comic 'Republic' series and I gotta say it rocked!!! He was mentioned in Ep III - which juz blew me away! [face_love] ) As for the OT characters: 1)Yoda (loved him more in the OT than PT ones. Also loved Obi-Wan which I mentioned earlier and as well as Palpy) 2) Han Solo 3) Lando Calrissian Luke was ok as well as Leia, but they weren't my faves. I had a crush on Mark Hamill when I was a kid...but that was as far as that went. [face_laugh]

    As for pets...I have had to put down w/in the last couple years 2 dogs (cancer). Loved my babies... but surviving animals: 2 ferrets and 3 cats (which 2 are staying with my ex cuz my kid loves them and he wants to stay with daddy right now).

    As for education...I am (well when I get the nerve to get back to doing courses again [face_laugh]) working on a Wildlife Management degree. Was in the US Air Force for 8 years (1992-2000) until I got medically discharged (unwillingly that is). Though I'm working for the US Air Force again, juz on the civilian side of the house. Doing almost what I did when I was active duty - ironically.

    I've enjoyed Star Wars from the time I saw Ep IV back in '77. Though I was only 4 I vaguely remember scenes and the crowd's reaction towards the movie. Saw each and every one of the episodes in the theater afterward.

    I love to game (RPGs) from White Wolf, D&D, Battletech/Mech Warrior, Star Wars, Rifts, Gurps, and a few others I can't recall off hand.

    I love painting and have a bit of a collection of figures (mainly D&D ones).

    Member of the local Amtgard (LARP like - live action role playing with a twist - padded swords and armor) and meet juz about every Sunday at the park in Jacksonville.

    alright. here goes nothing.
    my societal name is lisa. its really melisa but nobody can handle the one s thing. my grandmother named me and for years i thought the woman misspelled my name. we didnt get along too well. i was born in MS, moved to TX in the 6th grade, and moved to AR in 94. i have been married for 18 years and have three kids, josh-15, madelyn-12, and sam-9. we live outside of malvern and have a veritable animal graveyard on our land. we get all sorts of animals that others dump and we take care of them. right now we have two dogs and a cat.
    i have taught for 17 years from coaching to reading to english 9, pre-ap english, oral comm, and now i advise the yearbook. i am also big in beta club in the high schools. i just earned my mla in english from henderson and hopefully one day get to earn my doctorate. you can never have too much learning.

    i have loved star wars since dec 76 when i found this book in waldenbooks. my gang and i were in 5th grade and were the first ones in line at the mall theater when the movie opened. we sat middle in the first row and were mesmerized. i have loved luke since then. i had convinced myself during those first years that i was destined to be found by luke so i could help fight the empire. i had skills. i also regularly beat up the neighborhood boys whenever they made fun of the underdog. my fav eu character is nomi sunrider. she just rocks.

    besides star wars, i love to read, cook, sew, paint, actually anything that can be crafted by hand i can probably do. comes from both sides of the family. i love sports as well, i used to coach and still play when i can. i also love dc comics and have been swiping milk money to pay for that habit since i was 7. wonder woman is my idol. i believe that the rest of my time is taken up watching my three kids express and be whatever it is they want to be.

    Hey, been meaning to put a good entry in this thread for a while, so here's an updated version of my entry from Memphis 2 years ago...

    How long have you been a SW fan?
    All my life, but it didn't really become a lifestyle until Ep1.

    Describe your first SW movie experience: Which movie? When? Where? etc.
    I don't know how old I was and I don't even know if it was me or if it was my brother (I remember it as being him), but the first time we saw Star Wars in the theater, back in one of the re-releases--when Vader steps onto the Tantive IV, my little brother jumps up and yells at the top of his lungs, "That's Darth Vader!"

    Which is your favorite SW movie?
    ESB

    Favorite character?
    Jedi in general. Obi-Wan, Aayla Secura, Mace Windu...
    Bossk--he was one of my favorite figures when I was a kid
    R2--Astromechs are sooooo cool.
    TROOPERS!!!
    TIE Pilot
    AT-AT driver--another one of my favorites as a kid.

    Other SW interests? (collecting, gaming, costuming, fan fiction, books/comics/EU, etc.)
    Forever working on a very amateur Jedi Costume
    I collect 3.75" action figures and accessories, but fight completism--Have focuses on Bossk, TIE pilots, AT-AT drivers, R2 and astromechs, and Jedi in general and TROOPERS!!!

    Star Wars Mini Games--I have a friend who started www.starwarsminigames.com
    --he's also the owner/operator of
    yodasnews.com
    and
    voldemortsvault.com
    I want to focus more on higher end stuff--I have been filling out my GG Bust-ups collection and MR .45 scale saber hilts. I want more of this kinda stuff, but most of it is still too expensive for me, and I can't stop buying the basic figures.

    Art, Music, Camping, Reading, Soccer.

    Ok... I'll go next I guess.

    Given name: Sara
    SW "Handle" Asti
    Chosen name I write under: deSaevio

    Age: 32 (blech) Aries
    Married - no kids unless I count my hubby. (I always say, "I asked God over and over for a child... all I wanted was a child. I suppose I should have been more specific:) I wouldn't trade him for the world tho.

    I have three cats. Well, not exactly. Jason has a kitten we named Kharada, after an SWG EU character I created in my writing and on SWG. I have one cat named Dodi, who is a fat orange tabby with "issues". I also have what is called in some circles as a "Familiar" name Kiefer, who is a black/beige tabby.

    I'm a writer who has lost touch with her muse for at least four years now, but I'm starting to get back into it. If only I could get that first damn novel written and sold, ya know? I also paint, draw, dream, sing, and used to cantor for my church.

    I was raised in San Bernardino and Riverside, in Southern California. I moved to Wichita KS almost three years ago and NW AR about two years ago.

    I met my husband, Inv, in Starwars Galaxies. I was spying on his guild :) (I was a rebel then, before I decided the dark side cookies were better).

    Favorite SW movie is probably episode 3, probably only because you get to see the sexy Hayden with no shirt on. (Yeah, I'm that shallow at times). But I tell people it's because I read the book first, and the store comes together brilliantly, and I just love it.

    Favorite characters:
    Anakin, because he's moody and dark... and then my characters in my fan fiction - Asti, followed by the lovable psycho Twilek Kharada. Then, Waddo because he's funky lookin and has a Buddha belly, and finally, R2D2 because he's got all the attitude I wish I had.

    I spent a year at FIDM studying costume and fashion design, and a year in the SCA just to create costumes, and so I guess that's why when Inv got into costuming for SW, I jumped on it! I am facinated by the recreation of other people's work I suppose.

    My sister-friend nick named me "Cheese" because I'm so cheesy... I spent a year in discernment before I had an epiphany that that was BS, I like to eat the crust of pizza first to save the cheesy goodness for last, I think labels are for cans, not for people, and I'm politically ambidexterous. (SP?) Oh, and I can't spell. I taught the third grade for three years, which was interesting, and currently work for WalMart's home office as a paper jockey. (Well, I supervise paper jockeys now). I really really like tater-tots.

    And, I think that's it.

    *pokes her head in*

    Hi Hi! I'm JediBettyBug18, real name Marybeth but please call me Anni :) I can't tell you where I live (mom's rules) but I do live in a small farm town outside of Pine Bluff.

    I am balancing several writings, including a novel currently titled WIP. :p I have a black cat, Cleo de Chloe, and a cute grey taby (i dunno her breed, seriously) kitten named Durroness Jaina Natalie.

    Hate my step mom, who lives in WY with my dad. She's so evil.

    I like costuming. . . if I could ever finish a costume I'd be so happy. :D I am half black & half white and proud of it. My dad has blonde hair and I sorta got some gold in my hair, all natural btw.

    Had a kitten in 2004 named Noraboo, who was killed by my neighbor Nov. 3, 2004. RIP Nora @};-

    Feel free to PM me :)

    @};- God Bless

    Welcome.

    We have several members working on costumes:

    Leia, Padme, Jedi, Sand People and Imperial Guard to name a few...

    Just to clarify on Nyborg's comment: If you are under 18, you are welcome at any event...you just need a parent or guardian present.

    Hello, I'm Joseph (bka Enderan). I've just only recently gotten envolved with the community here and am actually liking it a lot.

    I've loved Star Wars since I was a little kid am steeped in the ways of the Jedi and their teachings, including the 7 forms of lightsaber technique.

    I'm 31

    Jacob and I went to highschool together.

    I am eager to gain another padawan since my former Padawan is up for mastership herself (my wife) and is becoming quite proficient in Soresu (Form III) lightsaber combat.

    I have 3 children, 7, 5 and 2 (almost 3).

    That's me in a nut shell! So if you're interested in getting some training in Lightsaber combat or discussing the phylosophy of the Jedi then give me a hit. DissidentKnights.com or at jwmwestbrook@comcast.net.

    May the force be with you, or (if you're sith) may the force serve you well.
