I want to get started
« on: May 31, 2010, 08:27:21 PM »
Hello everyone, for starters i have wanted Stormtrooper armor since the first time i watched ANH when i was like 5. In recent weeks i have been looking around a bit since my gf is having a Star Wars themed party for her kids, i thought what better reason to finally be a TK than that? Then found this site and the 501st. The work you guys are doing is amazing, it is so cool to be able to take our childhood dreams and use them to help other people. So i have a few questions. I was looking around and i saw that Rubie's armor is not up to par. I am just wondering what armor should i get and where should i get it?

ok so i have been reading that site for some time now. It seems that the FX/AM armor might be the way to go. How do i go about contacting the person who makes it? It seems hard to find information on these sites.

What, so I can't offer assistance to a newbie? Right... members only club, right?

Whatever. Forget that I even bothered to help.

Bill, you of all people should know there are people in place to help facilitate new potential members and their costume interests.  And IF those people don't offer help that is where the other members help.  Now there is NOTHING wrong with helping but there is a time and a place.  You know this. You definitely have a wealth of knowledge bud but at the very least give others time to do their jobs.  :D
