Saw you at N.Aurora Parade

Post by Hawk »

Greetings, I saw a few of you at the North Aurora Parade this last Sunday (6-1-14) and was interested in joining. So I thought I would introduce myself. I live in North Aurora and am an avid Star Wars fan, as is my Wife. Just thought I would say "Hi"

Welcome Hawk! Do you have an idea as to where you would like to start, costume wise?

That's a tough choice! I really like the Null-12 Clone A'den Skirata. That''s a cool clone. I was also thinking of a Tie Pilot, maybe Baron Fel. If I do the Tie, it really can be split into like 5 different costumes, just by changing the accessories... I did a lot of research on Jango Fett as well, since there aren't as many Jangos as there are Bobas, so I thought another might be nice. I hear there is a great Jango already in the MWG that can even costume as him without the helmet! But I think what I really want to do is a Royal Guard. There is very little cooler than how imposing those guys look. Everyone is black or white, then there is this smash of Red. That has got style to it. I guess the hard part is choosing what I want.

What are everyone Else's costumes, and why did you choose that one to do? What about your "Other" clothes called to you?

I have an Imperial Staff Officer, Imperial Crewman and Reserve Pilot. I went with the staff officer as they drew a command presence on the Tantive IV when Vader talks to Praji. I went with the crewman as it is a basis for many different ones as many pieces can be used for them, crewman then reserve pilot then TIE or even gunner. After looking myself I believe I will be going gunner myself then TIE.

The Gunner does look much easier than a Tie, it's basically just bib and bucket. I noticed in some of the promo shots for "Rebels" it appears that there will be an armored officer, that looks cool.

Of course, since the cartoon hasn't started yet, who know what the character is going to be like. It could be the worst character ever, but his outfit looks cool.

I totally agree, he looks cool but that only gets him so far. Hoping that he has an awesome role and not some bumbling idiot. The only issues i have found are trying to find a reputable vendor that does both good work and is timely with the delivery that they quote. I will probably go with hard armor instead of bib though.

Which hard armor were you thinking about? The TK or the Smooth? What code cylinder are you going for? It's funny. Until you mentioned Armor, I never scrolled down the Gunner page before. I didn't know that was an option. The Gunner has become a much more interesting option...

I was thinking smooth like the POTF figure. I have some real code cylinders from England, but will go with the silver ones from elvistrooper. Actually I was all about doing a TIE until I talked to Kevin at the last troop and he mentioned a gunner. I did some research and figured it would be a better route to go as well.

Greetings Sakic,
What costume do you wear and why did you choose it? Judging from your post, you dress as Ironhide... I didn't know the 501st wore good guys as well... :wink:

Hawk

Oh, and what kind of camera do you shoot with?

Sakic, that's awesome. I shoot almost the exact same camera. Any tips on better pictures?

Hello Atrek. I see you have some good costumes. What's your favorite? Working on anything good?

Who is this "Coin"? She looks hot!

Best tip I can give you while taking pictures is lighting. That's why i ALWAYS keep a flashlight ducktaped to my camera.

And I think you and Coin might really hit it off. I'll pass her a note at the next troop. It will say "Do you like Hawk? Yes or no. Circle your answer. " I'll let you know what she says!
