Hello everyone.

Woo Hoo! I cant believe I am finally here.

Im just another crazy Star Wars fan that became aware of these wonderful costuming groups, Rebel legion and the 501st.

I have been dropping in over the last 12 months or so to read the forums and try to get a handle on the lay of the land and the different identities.

I thought it was probably a good time to just put my hand up and say “ hi”. I know there have been some recent change in the RL in this country but it seems like it is entering a really exciting time. Even though we are no longer under the one banner, it is just a great feeling to think I may have brothers and sisters around the country with a similar love for this amazing juggernaut that is Star wars.

I have always been impressed by the work you all do and the changes you make in peoples ( especially children’s ) lives. I would love to be a part of it and join the RL.

I know that you have particularly high standards of costuming so for the past year or so have been working on an Obi Wan. I have done episode 3 as well as episode 2.
I think the episode 3 is more convincing but hope the episode 2 will also pass muster. Although a simpler look in a costuming sense, I think the EP2 is a more difficult look to get right and haven’t really seen too many attempted. I have tried to stay as accurate to the movies as possible (Sorry Fyr – traditional colours LOL ) but look forward to your feedback and suggestions on improvement and what I will need to do for approval.

I am still doing a few tweaks ( do we ever really stop tweaking ? ) but should be able to get a photo up soon. ( If I can work out photobucket thingy Laughing )

So thanks for listening guys, sorry if this is the longest intro ever : )

Im really glad to be here.

Kind regards,

Shay.

Hey Adam how funny was that? I couldnt stop laughing Laughing

I'll take it as a compliment though, thanks again mate.
