New Guy Here!
« on: December 24, 2017, 04:39:59 PM »
Hey guys!

My real name is Perry, but you can call me Kess or Kessel. I've been looking into this hobby for a while now and I think I'm ready to hop in. While I currently live in California, I'm going to Portland for college next year so I figured I would plan ahead and start on these forums. The costume I'm looking at building is a Biker Scout piece with camouflage armor. Now, I know you guys take canonization very seriously, but to me the normal Kashyyyk armor looks funny. I was wondering when I get to building my armor (probably using studiocreations') if it would be fine to spray-paint it camouflage (without changing the visor to green and using non-canonical camouflage patterns). If not, I'll just have to deal with shiny white. :tongue:

What I want it to look like:


P.S. Any tips on getting more involved with events and armor ideas are welcome!

- Kessel

Hello! Unfortunately, custom paint jobs aren't allowed on standard armor and wouldn't be approved. There's nothing wrong with dirtying up a scout trooper to give it a used look, but definitely have to keep it on the lighter side with black and brown.
