Greetings from the Western Suburbs!

Postby Ente » Wed Apr 11, 2018 7:23 pm

I do not believe I have formally introduced myself yet to everyone so its about time I do so!

I'm from Aurora, IL and have been cosplaying Kylo Ren (TFA) for a few years now and I'm on my third revision of the ensemble. I also just started the beginning stages of pursuing 501st approval within the Sith Lord Detachment. I was at this year's C2E2 Chicago burning alive in full garb for about 4-5 hours on both Friday and Saturday with the custom saber that had clear acrylic blades sporting a lightning effect. I really appreciate the Wookiee who let me temporarily lay some of my gear down behind the 501st booth so I could make adjustments.

I also spoke with Sam (TK-49811 I believe?) for awhile Friday to get ideas and a little insight behind the 501st. I also had a blast hanging around a couple Vaders on the floor.

My next goal is to refresh my helmet as its starting to show age and I'm always looking for a way to finally integrate my voice modulation kit inside.

Valerie (as Rey) was very helpful and adamant that I hook up with the local 501st chapter.

I look forward to seeing some of you again soon!
