Hello from Portland!
« on: June 04, 2019, 02:02:55 PM »
Hiya! My name is Karina and I've been a long time fan of the 501st and Rebel Legion. I just moved up to the Pacific Northwest from SoCal and I'm currently located in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Everyone I've met in the Southern California Garrison at conventions has been a pleasure to hang out with, and I'm excited to work towards joining this community!

I've got a number of ideas around what costume(s) I want to do and would love some guidance on where to start. I'm partial to characters that are torn between the light and the dark, like Bastila Shan. However, I also love characters like Darth Zannah and Barriss Offee.

I've been a seamstress for a long time but have never worked with leather or armor before, and would be totally stoked to learn those techniques from others!

Looking forward to meeting you all and getting to know you!  :D

Cheers!

Grew up around Anaheim, but lived in Lake Forest/Mission Viejo for a number years (loved it there) then moved up north of LA to Thousand Oaks for work!

It sounds like we had similar experiences around SoCal! I was constantly in the beach cities for scuba and surf :)
My home cities were always Anaheim and Lake Forest though!

Excellent! Small world for sure. I miss the old stomping ground. Don’t miss the traffic though, lol
