Hello from Springfield!

Post by Par_ »

Hey guys! My name is Reese, and I am from the Springfield area. I am 16 years old, and I will not be able to join the 501st until the end of next year. However, that's not stopping me from assembling my costumes ahead of time (mainly for Halloween, but it never hurts to do stuff ahead of time right?).

I am making Kylo Ren and the Death Trooper (the Kylo Ren is being made according to the regulations, but with the Death Trooper there is no CRL yet, I am going for as accurate as possible), and I have come here to talk to local people that may have some advice. With the Death Trooper I am heating a bunch of plastic signs from Ace Hardware and shaping them. I'm using the signs because there aren't any local plastic sheet suppliers in Springfield, and I need to look some up in the Illinois area. Hopefully it will get done! I will be putting a thread up here for it to see what everyone thinks, so get ready for a bunch of pics :bar:

Can't wait to get to know you all!

P.S. You can look my up under the same username on the Sith Lord, White Armor, and Elite Stormtrooper Detachments.
