Hey all,

I know that forums in general are quiet nowadays, including our own, and that not that many of you stop by.

However, for those of you who do, you may have noticed that Ryloth Base has new leadership, it's ShowNoTears as CO and myself as XO.

We're a small base, and most of us know each other pretty well, but I thought it would be good to have a thread where we can chat and ask each other questions.

Do you have any questions for Ben and I? What do you want to see more of here in Ryloth?

Or what are you working on? What are you working towards?

I'm currently working on two new costumes. I've just finished up Bespin Escape Leia and I'm working on Hero Rey. Corellian Five and I will finally have matching costumes from the same movie! lol

You may not know that in addition to the forums here, there are some FB groups, like the Rey community and Leia Bun squad who are both super helpful.

Thank you to both yourself and Ben for taking on the leadership positions vital to keep the base going.

Yep, these forums definitely are quiet! It's been a while since I've logged in as well :/

I think Ryloth definitely needs more Twi'leks Razz Happy to help anyone with advice on how to create a Twi'lek! Very Happy

Currently I'm working on a 501st costume (TIE reserve pilot eventually --> ANH TIE pilot), a non-legion Twi'lek smuggler/rogue (hmm, although I haven't actually looked into the CRL to see whether or not generic aliens are accepted), also currently procrastinating re-doing my Ceremonial Leia to aim for Legion approval and eventually will also make a generic jedi for my partner (possibly a Zabrak).

I really hope that Ryloth base can appear at Avcon again this year with a larger presence! Smile

I will definitely be pushing for Avcon this year. I feel like last year was a good troop, although we didn't raise much money, and it was so much fun!

I think AVCon could be seen more as a recruitment troop rather than a fundraising troop (obviously we still want to fundraise but the majority of attendees are teenagers with little spare money to donate) and it's really good for us to get the RL name out there as a top-notch costuming club Smile
But I am pretty biased as AVCon is my all-time favourite convention to attend! Very Happy

I realised that I never got around to submitting my Twi'lek jedi, so I really should get onto that.

I'd love to go back to AVCon again this year too. I had fun, despite being sick and losing my voice! lol I think it's important to be there, considering we don't have many conventions in Adelaide anymore.

Definitely agree on the AVCon being a good source of potential new members - recruitment needs to be high on our agenda, as we are rather thin on the ground.

I keep wanting to attempt a new costume, but constantly distracted by side projects or real life... In truth, Rex is more a light side character than dark, and I've stepped way back from 501st stuff now..... I'd love to do a Jedi temple guardian costume one day, but need to drop a few kgs, lol

I'm still trying to start my Warhammer 40k Space Wolf kit.... A tad ambitious....

Definitely agree on the Avcon troop it's a chance to get potentially new members - recruitment needs to be high priority

I will be taking a step back from 501st for now. All my efforts will be in aiming to have my admiral ackbar 100% ready and approved (hopefully) before then......
