Hello, so I just had my birthday and turned 17 and that means one more year before my full membership, the only thing I have more questions. So my questions are:

1. How do I find out when and where do we have a meeting for charity or anything else.
2. Still working on my costume and the forums feel like there is way to much info to source through, and I know I have asked this questions a lot but it will be very helpful if I could get pointed into the right direction. (my cosplay is going to be Luke death star duel)

Thanks for reading and I can't wait to UNOFFICIALLY troop with you guys.

There can be a ton of info out there, and it may seem a bit of an overload. What I would suggest is hang out with a few of the people who know that costume... and pin the questions on them.

I know that MasterSkywalker (Dave) is an authority on Luke costumes... and pretty much can walk you thru the costume questions you cannot find the answers to. I would start in the Jedi costuming section as well and start a costume build thread. People who know about the costume will pop in there and give a hand as well... with info and such.

Good luck...

Bob

Almost all the event planning is done in our member’s only area. So you will probably just need to watch out here for things – like the Joliet Library event in June. We’ll also be at C2E2 in April.

We do need to do a better job of letting new people know where we are going to be and when....

I know that it would be great to have some of the people working on costumes coming out to "hang out" with us...
cuz...
yes...
lol..
we can put you to work...

The one thing about those not yet 18 is that they need some kind of parental approval to come to events though....

maybe NSB Command could address that here....

Another area that we can always use help at is the Bartlett 4th of July Parade..

Yep, you're absolutely right we need to come up with a plan for advertising events we're going to be at, we've done a poor job of that in the past.

As far as attending our events, I would be happy for you to attend our events, but until you are 18 and old enough to join formally, I would require a parent present for liability reasons if you'd like to participate. If you would like to attend one of our events, please let me know in advance by email or Private Message and we can discuss that further.

If you'd like to come and meet us and talk costumes, C2E2 is a great place to do so as its a much more informal event and atmosphere.

Hello there!! Like what Norman said, C2E2 is a great place to chat up. We'll be playing our Diplomatic Mission game on Sunday too for the first time. Smile

Definately. Work in progress threads are great for making sure your costume gets built correctly and in making sure you have as little problems getting your costume accepted by the RL, so please feel free to share.

Also you might want to consider checking out the Galactic Academy as well. Its our sister group which specializes in costumes for kids and teenagers.

Great I'm so happy so amny people replied and yes, I'm the victor from challengers comics which was fun. I'm working on it now I will make a update thread or something like that, what I plane on doing though is making the costume by c2e2 which I know I can do. It's been really busy here since I'm trying to do great in school and get into MIT Smile wish me luck.( In my experience there's no such thing as luck.) Mr. Green

Good luck!

I will be at C2E2 only on Sunday as we are going to be running the Diplomatic Mission game that day.

Even if you don't finish everything by C2E2...wear what you have done..
