This is my first official post to introduce myself. My name is Paul Moomey and my Ben Kenobi costume was approved last week as a formal costume. I live in Houston, TX (actually Spring just south of The Woodlands). I have been a member of the Replica Prop Forum for many years (admittedly not so active in recent years) and that is how I was able to create my costume with the help of several other RPF members. I have been on a quest recently to find more screen accurate materials for both the inner and outer robes, tunics, etc.. I have mostly just worn my costume during halloween for the trick or treaters. I recently wore my costume at a birthday party of a friend for her young children. She also had some friends of hers from the 501st attending. After seeing my costume the 501st guys encouraged me to apply to the Rebel Legion. I also attended a local comic book store event at the request of the owner along with some of the same 501st members and it went well. So here I am - excited to get to know everyone and get involved in some local events along with you. Hopefully I am posting this in the correct forum but if not please let me know and I will endeavor to get it corrected.

Thanks Pete. I was not aware of the Facebook page so I went right away to sign up. Thanks for the welcoming post there.

I have been browsing the RL forum a lot lately but I am still a little confused on how to get involved in the posted events. I see where there is a calendar but am not sure what to do from there. Do I look for a posting in the forum specific to the event and who keeps track of whether or not there are more people signing up than is requested by the event coordinator?. Also - if an event is something like a comic con where you would ordinarily have to buy tickets to attend - do RL members need to buy tickets as well?? I can't imagine RL members getting in free for something big but if it is a special event within - I just don't know. From past experience I know it can sometimes be almost impossible to get tickets to things like San Diego CC for example (I know it isn't in our region but as an example).

Finally - how do I sign up for the Knights of the Jedi Order and do I need to? I saw that their main responsibility is to help with costuming standards but I'm only familiar with Ben's costume.

Welcome aboard Paul!

Great to see another Rebel in the Houston area (I'm in Houston BTW).

As far as finding events in the Kessel Base area, it's in the section named "Base Events", here is a link to that section:

http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=295

As far as paying for admission to conventions, etc. we usually have to pay (just like the public), some conventions will give us a discount (Comicpalooza in Houston) and I think the Space City Con (also in Houston) let us get in for free (if I remember right).

To join the Knights Of The Jedi Order, just post some pics of your costume at this link:

http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12290&highlight=

If you need any help on the boards (trying to find things or questions) feel free to contact me.

Thanks Danny and Dena - looking forward to meeting all the members in this area. There is a lot of information here in the site to absorb - still browsing around.
