Just want to say hello and I'm hoping in about a month and half to submit my female ESB Han Solo costume. Been loving the RL community so far as everyone has been super helpful with my build. I'll have this done in time for C2E2 in March. Anyways hoping to meet some of you in the near future.

Here's my WIP thread in case anyone is interested:

Thanks Smile If I stay on track, I should be submitting the week of C2E2. Also a friend told me to get tickets to the Adler After Dark on the Thursday of C2E2. Went to go buy them and saw the RL and 501st will be there, so I'm going to that as well. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

Just submitted today so fingers crossed. C2E2 was crazy but fun. I learned that walking in riding boots for 14 hours will cause my ankles to be bruised and my calves to be extra sore the next day Smile

A friend of mine who also takes photos for my band was kind enough to follow me around C2E2 yesterday to take pics and my submission photos.

If you are interested you can check them out here:

You did such an incredible job on this costume...sorry that I missed it in person...

one thing you do need to know is that to be approved as Han Solo...you will need to probably get a wig and look like a male...

I actually have been chatting with an LCJ about this topic. Han's hair is not iconic and is not listed in the standards. He said just to wear it natural and it should be fine. I mean this is about costuming and not full character portrayal. Maybe I won't be able to do some high profile events as a woman as Han Solo but at C2E2 everyone recognized who I was.

Not to get too much on a soap box but here is why I'm interested in joining the legion. The reason I do a lot of the things I do is to be a positive female role model. I'm a woman working in a predominately male industry. I'm a programmer and there aren't a lot of women. I volunteer for Girls Who Code to get young girls interested in STEM. I'm also a female musician. Lots of challenges there as well so I volunteer for an organization called Girls Rock Chicago which empowers girls through rock music.

So onto the RL and the whole Han Solo thing. For me Han has always been one of my favorite characters. And I don't want this to come off cliche because the phrase can drive me crazy but I think it will get my point across...lots of people tell their young girls "You can be anything you want when you grow up". It is about breaking gender stereotypes while sending the message of that it's ok to be different, it's ok to identify with a different gender or none at all. I identify as female but a lot of the things I do people would consider predominately male.

I feel Star Wars is a great platform to help tie in other positive messaging specifically around the things that I hold dear to my heart. I want to inspire young women because if it wasn't for the female mentors and role models I've had I would not be where I am at today. Also did I mention I just freaking love Star Wars and between Star Wars and Star Trek is why I got into technology.

Ok off my soap box Smile
