To be more exact, it's Cudahy, more people know where Milwaukee is.

I'm really quite nervous here. I've wanted to talk to you people for a very long time ever since I was a kid. It feels like I'm coming into a full circle. I REALLY want to see you guys @ the Discovery Museum on the 17th! Sorry if I spontaneously hug you..

Hey ladies and gents.
I'm currently working on a costume that is a custom build of Ahsoka Tano as if she were an adult. It's been something I wanted to do for the longest of time, after that, I'll make the stretch to turn myself into Ahsoka (that'll be approved for the organization, I can't wait for that day to come). I don't see why I would go all the way into making a fully grown, mature Togruta, only to fall short with making a young adult that only looks slightly different! I think the process will be very interesting.

In preparation for this build, I lost over 125 lbs and gained 15-20 lbs of muscle. I knew I needed the tools and knowledge to actually build the costume, the overall journey has been very revealing and challenging for me thus far. I took up a very difficult costume to start out with, to see how determined I could be in such a short time frame. It was a proposition that was doomed to fail at the start, I surprised myself with the progress I've already made. I'm even confident enough to say that this costume may be completed in the middle of October! Just in time for the Discovery Museum visit! I really can't wait to meet whomever comes.

Here's my WIP. It's under 'Jedi' - http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=67686

I've been a video gamer and a science fiction believer all of my life. Video games conquered my mind every since I was young boy, so much so, video game recording software (like X-Fire, Steam, and even old saves from ancient games I have) tell me I've spent over 16 solid years in the digital realm. Video games have the ability to empower your creativity and imagination, which I've been suppressing with excuses up until recently. I have some idols, some stick out more than others, one of them is Ahsoka. I can relate with her on so many things, I believe I'm honoring her character by presenting her to the world in the best form possible. I've have been made aware of that I might be the first, in the whole darn organization, that I'd be the first male Ahsoka Tano. Now I'm all excited... Oh well, someone was bound to do it at some point, may as well be me Smile.

I'm glad you guys exist, even you Illionis folk. On some nights, your a fairy tale around a camp fire! I'm aiming to go to Fright Fest this year with this costume (with maybe a bit of a 'Mortis'fied look). Will need to fiddle with the airbrush on that one, no promises though! Haha.

This was a long overdue 'hi' message. I'm just really excited! Very Happy.

I'm sad, but I'll be here around 1pm-ish if you guys are still around the grounds at Discovery today.

I have sad news to.report.

I can't make it, in costume, to my dry run today. I put heart and soul into this headpiece, it wasn't enough. This is what I was doing for the last 3 days.




I know I set myself up for failure by asking so of myself in such a little amount, but I was looking forward to meeting you guys in costume. I'd still enjoy a hand shake still, it's all about community to me after all Smile
