Armor parties?

Post by Sentry71 »

I've heard stories here and on FISD of this elusive thing called an armor party.

Are these regular events, or just something that springs up on occasion? I'd love to hear more about them, and how someone would go about setting one up.

They don't happen on a regular schedule, but any and all are free and encouraged to host one at any time.
Usually someone (who most likely has their own costume to work on) gauges interest in others that might want to do the same.
Then, just determine a time and date for a get-together.
Everyone brings whatever tools, spare materials, and costumes they wish to work on, and everyone pitches in to make progress on all.

Thanks for the explanation. I'm still a few weeks away from my armor showing up, but I thought it would be a good idea to ask ahead.

Just received my AP kit today. Looks like I may have to take a trip up to the northern part of the state and get a little help.
