Ok, I feel like a complete idiot now. I did NOT know there was a local feature to the board!!! We went to CIII and so wanted to meet others from our area, but really did not know how to start. I am so kicking myself now...LOL So, I shall intro myself. My name is Joy and I am addicted to costuming!!! I am a Star Wars fanatic and am lucky enough to not have a 9-5 job so I can tinker on lots of projects at once. My obsessions, er I mean hobbies...include sewing, leather working, prop building, and caring for my private menagerie... I am happy to be here and look forward to meeting you all!
