Afternoon! I met some of you at the Overland Park Comiccon back in March, and while I'm not a formal RL member, yet, I am closing in on finalizing my costume. I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist...and a nut over quality...

Here's some pictures of my fiancee and I attending the Dallas 2012 ComicCon event in Irving, TX this past weekend, also gives you an idea of how my ERT is coming.

In short, I'm working on a comparably acceptable blaster rifle - I know I can use a modified Hasbro DH-17, but I'm trying to locate an Endor Commando Rifle.

Quick question for other members...how would you all feel about a 'non-member' like me attending the formal events and helping support the group? That way y'all can get to know me and I can get to know you. (I also contacted one of the Base C/O's about this as well)

The ERT is looking fantastic so far. The only one I've seen that makes the parts for the ERT rifle is on a break until September the last I read and they are very hard to come by. If you attend any event that I am though you are more than welcome to borrow mine as I have an ERT that is almost done as well, but like you haven't submitted until its right. I'd be happy to have you come out and get to know everyone and help with the events.

Is the one coming back in Sept the same one you got Rich? I'm kicking around doing an ERT as well but was looking at doing something like E-11 until I could get the right one.

Didn't Chris make his ERT riffle from an airsoft gun?

We both did ours from airsoft guns, but with the parts kit from tk560. They are the only ones that have made the parts I've seen.

Thanks for the feedback, and that's the same kit I'm waiting on to try an order. I thought I secured a source for the rifle, but never heard back...

As you can see, I'm basically only missing a weapon before submitting the costume. I've got more belt packs and a backpack/carrypack that I just wasn't wearing when the picture was taken. Almost there, just need to stay on target...

Indeed, just stay on target. You are almost there, and it is good to have another ERT in the area.
