It is only fitting that Kevin is finally a Rebel..

The folks in this photo are the first people Kevin met in person from the SW costume community..

It's been a LONG road to here!

OFFICIAL TODAY!

Now I need a new belt and holster. Also making a 1:1 scale canon accurate DH-17. Very glad to be in officially!

Let's take a step back and see how far I've come in 10 years!


Mobile 234 by TK9336, on Flickr

Thanks to my Dad being supportive in helping me make this in 5th grade! I need to find the picture of my friend and I BOTH as RFT's for Halloween 2003!

I became a teenager years later, and fast forward to 2009. Phyllis Gochi was THE FIRST person to find me wandering the Rebel Legion (I didn't EVEN KNOW there was a "501st".) So like all teens, I took the bathroom cell phone picture...


Mobile Phone 122 by TK9336, on Flickr

And then put on some weight (and was a REAL DOUGHBOY)- BUT I DID TAKE approval pics a Long, Long Time Ago! In fact it was (trusting the uploader time date when I actually put these on my old computer which was January 5th, 2010. It was probably before Jan 5th, 2010 but let's roll with it!) That RFT bucket was the FIRST thing I've ever built prop wise. Note it's HUGE SIZE on my head. That's why I never felt comfortable wearing it and now today changed out helmets for a MUCH more accurate helmet. Without ado-

Mobile Phone 389 by TK9336, on Flickr


Mobile Phone 386 by TK9336, on Flickr


Mobile Phone 347 by TK9336, on Flickr

No photoshop, that's the actual light in the scope of the toy DH-17!


Mobile Phone 384 by TK9336, on Flickr

And like ANYONE who finishes a costume, I put it on and ran around my parent's house like the "real deal," and put in ANH.


Mobile Phone 378 by TK9336, on Flickr


Mobile Phone 370 by TK9336, on Flickr

AND now fast forward to last Satuday- (and no longer a Doughboy, thanks to the Army I lost 30 lbs of pure fat.)


RFT at Legoland! by TK9336, on Flickr


SPS Studio Day - Rebel Fleet Trooper by TK9336, on Flickr

Oh, and in the meantime became a Stormtrooper IMMEDIATELY following the finishing the rebel costume. Finished the Rebel November 2009, and became TK-9336 September 2010.


SPS - Matthew Crowley Photography! by TK9336, on Flickr

WOW...that was exhausting, but now you've seen the last 10 years of my RFT!!!

HUGE THANKS TO PHYLLIS. Without you my life would've never changed for the betterment of myself, my family, and possibly every kid I have trooped with, and taken photos with!

Gotta ask...is that an old cell phone as the comm unit on your 5th grade RFT helmet?

No matter what it turned out looking like...it was still industrious of you to make it...


Cheers..
and well done!

I KNOW! I can kneel and everything. Now it is nigh I make a Commander Antilles. Once I find that pic of my buddy and I as RFT's the internet will re-consider the adorableness and awesomeness of this costume!

My RFT has always been one of my favorite costumes to wear...
kids recognize it...
it has lots of pockets...
it is pretty comfy...
and..
well...
frankly...
I just have always loved it...

As you know...I have lots of obscure costumes that most folks don't care about...but all of them interested me...or they were ones that weren't done before...
so.

I guess at the end of the day...
it is "all about me"...
