To get Rebel costuming rolling in the new year, Naboo Outpost will be running a costuming workshop and social meet-up on Sunday 27th January, 2013 (Auckland Anniversary weekend).

This event will be run in Auckland (Birkenhead), but will be an all day event to make it worthwhile attending for current or prospective members who are from other regions - starting from 10am, and running through to about 5pm (...or maybe even later...might turn into a barbecue in the evening, depending on numbers).

If you want to get advice about any costumes, help others with their costume projects, make progress on your own projects, or just swap ideas and discuss Good Guy costuming in general, this will be a great opportunity. We'll have on hand examples of Rebel Pilots, Clones, Royalty costumes, Jedi, and more. Bring your finished or in progress costumes along for show-and-tell...we can even muster up props, droids, other costumers etc for a few photoshoots.

Register your interest here (we need to keep track of numbers), and we'll send out address details by PM.

I was about to do a C-Line "holler" and then read the rest Sad But sleep, vital yes.


(edit to add:)
And there will be more, Smile Pretty sure I can wrangle a weekend near the end of Feb where people can use an industrial overlocker (vrooooom, it has an oil guage) or one of like five sewing machines. Just avoid the cat and really messy floor Wink

But meanwhile this will be a nice social and show and tell as well as making weekend. Smile Thanks to Team Glasgow we have shiney folders for the full Rebel Legion costume book to look through Smile

Ha! Perfect! I'm gathering the final pieces of my rebel pilot so I should have everything by then!

I need some help with the pilot helmet... Matt, any ideas on what glue to get?

Cool; that's just the sort of project that will be good to see progressed.

A lot of people advocate and get good results with E6000 for styrene/ABS kits. We've just recently had a lot of discussion about sourcing it locally, and tips for using it, here. An alternative that I've had pretty good results with in the past is Marley Gold PVC cement (link).

Yup, totally. Should be plenty, indoors and outdoors, for them to do.

Brilliant Smile so are there any projects people want to see especially? Clone armour? Jedi robes? huge cannot-ship-or-pack-in-a-suitcase Togruta pieces (okay so by folding they can take up an entire suitcase...)

Given there are going to be a few SWTORians we can also oggle the cartel market for the speccy new Jedi gear?

Signal boost over social media, hopefully it'll ping a few stragglers. I'm also going to give some direct pings to people who have expressed interest. Also maybe one of them may have a SW boardgame... ehem.

(Cross-posted from SWNZ)

Had a very enjoyable day today. Thanks to all those who came along and got involved (I think we had about 20 people in total at the peak of the day). I hope everyone found it useful to progress a few costuming projects, and enjoyed the social aspect as much as we did.
