Move went well, and we are settled and ready for school to begin. Looking forward to getting involved with the troopers out here in Eastern Idaho!

Hello and welcome! Do you know anyone here already? How did you get to be a costume judge? Where did you move from?

I'd been making Star Wars costumes for halloween since I was in middle school. I got into the Rebel Legion while in college at USU, after I met a bus driver who was in the 501st and who invited me to a joint event. This was back in 2006, and Utah/Idaho were still part of Colorado's Mountain Base (pretty sure). I was a part of Utah creating Rogue Base, and saw Idaho/Montana create Takodana. I've been good friends with Michael and Brita Capell from this time.

My emphasis has been on researching costumes (usually from computer games) and providing material for costume standards. I'm more handy with a computer than I am with sewing. Makes sense since I was going to school in Computer Science and online education.

After college I got a job as an Instructional Designer in online higher education and moved to the Washington DC area. I was there for 7 years and was a part of Virginia's well-established Freedom Base, and assisted West Virginia creating Amancane base. The club has grown a lot with all the films coming out and it's been neat to be a part of all these bases being created.

Eventually we got tired of paying so much airfare to fly back home and see grandparents, so I got permission to be fully remote about a year before COVID and moved back. I lived in a family home in Utah for a year saving up for a house.

About this time I saw the LMO put out a call for judges. With all the costume research I'd done for so many years I put in an application, and was accepted. Onboarding was really good because they had a whole batch of new judges and we got trained well. They're always looking for more people to lighten the load however! Contact the LMO (whoever it will be after elections) if interested.

We bought our home in Idaho Falls earlier this year during quarantine. I know a few people here, mostly from the 501st, but I remember Bernie F (Red Four). Looking forward to meeting everyone else!

That is excellent you were about to do that with work Sam. Glad to have you closer again.

As to Judges, yes always looking for quality people to be LCJ, like Sam. Contact the LMO after elections to make yourself available if interested.
