Hey everyone. My name is Alex and I am in the Davenport, IA area. I wish I would have known about you guys before, I have been a huge SciFi fan for years! I belong currently to a Star Trek club locally but I am not sure if there is a local Star Wars club. The Star Trek group I belong to (USS Mighty Mississippi of Starfleet Command) also has many Star Wars fans and would possibly be willing to start something up around here as well.

Anyway, I am headed to Comic Con Nashville this weekend and will be sure to take some pics of my Generic Jedi Cosplay. the accessories where made by myself, the tunic and tabards where made by Josh Gaetz who is studying at Columbia in Chicago for fashion design and has worked as a costume designer and makeup artist for several full length indy films one of which is about to hit Netflicks here soon (Dead Girls). It is quite the amazing piece made of screen accurate materials, lined, very heavy duty. My lightsaber is from Ultra Sabers. I will make sure to post up lots of pics for you to review.

My wife Katie is working on a Mara Jade cosplay. No cat suite yet so she can't officially join until she gets one, but the rest of the cosplay is in order. I just finished her belt and shoulder straps today, found some amazing goggles that seem to work well, and Josh made her cowl. Should look amazing, we will see this weekend!

Anyway hope to submit pics soon and join up with all of you. Hopefully some of you meet near Davenport so I can hook up with you guys. I am also a professional photographer so we can always do big group shoots and what not. I have worked for Rally America, ESPN, and do many weddings and modeling shoots. SORRY however, my pics from Comic Con will likely be taken on my iPhone as I don't like to carry around the Canon 1DX at cons. It is too big and does not fit with my costume, so I will have to take better pics in my studio when I get back. LOL
