Newb Introduction
« on: June 07, 2014, 07:56:26 PM »
My name is Rick and I'm located in the Rogue Valley area of Southern Oregon, Eagle Point to be exact and I'm looking to build a Stormtrooper for my first setup and looking to also build Jango Fett at a later time.

I'm also a professional photographer and actually working on a Star Wars Cosplay Pinup calendar for 2016, so I've already been building several accurate props for the shoots.

I am really looking forward to meeting everyone I can and look forward to many years of being a part of an awesome group of people!

Wylde,

Welcome from the North Tower; Portland. As a recommendation you should go to FSD (<= Link) (First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment) and then check out their CRL (Costume Reference Library) requirements.

I haven't seen any cookies yet, but I'm pretty new to the dark side.  I'm on the light side too, so I guess I just hang out at dusk!

Welcome aboard! There are a lot of good resources on this forum for getting started, and a lot of good people to answer questions! One of our recent members documented his Stormtrooper build really well here:

But another good place to start (if you haven't already) is the Stromtrooper detachment:

Welcome! We can never have too many TKs, and a Jango is always welcome too. Looking forward to see your build! When it comes time to finding a blaster for your TK you have a local option here if you want to avoid shipping expenses :)

Welcome to the forums Rick!

I'm at the tail-end of building my TK currently.  The FISD has been an invaluable resource for build advice for me and others here.

Please don't hesitate to contact myself, anyone here on the forums, or members of the FISD for advice and assistance.  Welcome aboard!
