|This year's final Endor Base Member of the Month is Dale Tolosa. Dale has been a member of Endor Base since 2003 and has quite a few variant Luke Skywalker costumes from the OT, and of course has a costume of the true hero of the Rebellion: Willrow Hood.
Tell us something about yourself:
I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area all my life. My birthday is May 24 - meaning the first 6 Star Wars Movies, and Indiana Jones saga came out around that same time. So it was my birthday treat.
I've graduated with a Theater Arts degree from San Francisco State University and have utilized my acting training and creativity in costuming and various customer service jobs over more than 15 years.
How long have you been involved with the Rebel Legion:
Since 2003. First met up with them at C2 in 2002 in Indianapolis.
Positions held (past or present)?
Base Membership Officer
What costume(s) do you have?
- Tatooine ANH Luke (with various accessories like the Pancho, macrobinoculars and blast-shield helmet) *Still a work in progress since I debut an early version of it with boots and Pancho at the SF Coronet TPM 1999 premiere.
- Death Star ANH Luke
- X-Wing Pilot
- Snowspeeder Pilot
- Luke Medical Robe (ESB)
- Generic Jedi
Other costumes include:
- Short Round
- Marty McFly (Enchanted Under the Sea Dance costume)
What costumes do you have in the works (if any)?
It's a secret for Celebration VIII. 😏
Do you have a favourite Troop/event:
The 2014 SF Giants/Star Wars Day. Wearing my Orange and Black X-Wing costume, it was an honor to represent 2 of my favorite pastimes - Giants baseball and Star Wars.
The best part of that whole troop was escorting a young child before the game to the field to get 2nd Baseman/Eventual World Series Champion Joe Panik's autograph while being looked upon by about 40,000 fellow fans in the stands.
*I would soon work for the Giants the following season.
What is your first Star Wars memory?
I've been told by my older brother & fellow Legion member Matt (Jedhead) that we saw A New Hope in 1977 at the (now defunct) Geneva Drive-In in Daly City, CA. (Was 3 at the time). But I distinctly remember putting our couches together in our living room and played the trash compactor scene with our cousins.
Favorite Star Wars movie:
A New Hope. It works as a standalone movie. (The opening crawl explains the events that happened before I.e. Prequels, Rogue One, and you have a satisfying ending with the medals ceremony)
Favorite Star Wars Character:
Any Social Media/Business to promote?
*Created this page as another way to have fun and express myself in cosplay and use "Ted" as another accessory to dress up with.
