I'm kinda new here . . . I migrated from Kansas in August. I'm hoping to find people to costume with near Syracuse, NY.

Welcome to the Echo Base boards - and to Upstate NY!
What costumes do you have (or are working on)?

Oops - looking at your profile I can see you have at least a Padme gown.

We don't seem to have too many active costumers in Syracuse anymore. There are a few to the north, some in Binghamton, a few to the east and a bunch in the West.

Welcome to Echo Base Jayne Very Happy

Keep an eye on the boards, I'm not real familiar with upstate NY, but if you are near Nicky I know she is always posting RL and 501st events here... we have a ton in the NJ area but that's pretty far from you Confused

Hi, everyone! I'm Jason (Character name Janus Farlance, New Republic Jedi). I've just been accepted and have submitted a request for a signature banner. Tried to upload an avatar but got an error message. Will try again before contacting the board admin.

Anyway, I live in Pittsburgh, PA. I'm 35 years old and just getting into Star Wars costuming. Unfortunately I'm a rank amateur when it comes to making my own stuff, so much of what I have is assembled from pre-fabbed purchases.

I'm in graduate school at the University of Pittsburgh (where I also work) pursuing a Masters of Library and Information Science. I am soon to have my first novel published and am desperately hoping, though it's probably a pipe dream, that it will be a gateway to allowing me to write full time.

My hobbies aside from reading and writing are movies (naturally) and tabletop gaming. I freelance in the tabletop RPG industry when gigs present themselves. I also am a musician.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone and getting involved more!

Thanks, DocBev--great to be here. When do I get a set of keys to the Blumfruit Temple? I went by a bit ago, and it seems the doors were locked...

Anyway, I'm here in west central PA (Jefferson County, about 90 miles from the Ohio border, 2 hours northwest of Pittsburgh), and work in higher education here at Penn State University (DuBois campus). I'm keenly interested in the way the Star Wars universe can introduce kids to world cultures, mythologies, etc., and am currently developing a curriculum through the Penn State Kids in College program to do just that. I'd be grateful for a chance to correspond with anyone in the RL who might share that kind of educational interest.

As far as costuming goes, I particularly enjoy hand-building lightsaber hilts--I've done three so far (including the one in my profile pic), and periodically get the urge to go scavenging through hardware stores for parts for a new saber. Haven't gotten to the point of wiring LED tubes yet, but perhaps the day will come.

I've been married 15 years this summer to a longsuffering (non-SW fan) wife whom I love dearly, and three SW addicted kids, 10, 8 and 4. I spent several years involved in church work with South Asian people groups in India, London, New York/New Jersey, and speak a good bit of Hindi. My character costume name, Noh'Kri Mahim is based on a Hindi phrase that basically means "Servant of Glory", as I see my life and all I do as done for the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31).

So that's me in a nutshell (an appropriate receptacle). Thanks for listening...

Tharren,

So glad your here. Working on going to your event in Dubois, plus bring two costumes a tusken raider male and a naboo handmaiden.

Tim,

That sounds great--not only for what it will bring to the event, but I'm kicking around the idea of working on a Tusken costume next, so getting a close look at one will give me an idea of what I'd be getting into (no pun intended...)

Great intro post, Mahim!
