Thank you for the warm welcome!!

I have to confess I've been putting this off for YEARS, but got back into SW in a big way this past couple years (after being kind of dormant for aaaaages following a big burst of Jedi costume discussion on theforce.net back in the spring of 1999), and after running into folks a lot at cons and charity events I decided it was time. Smile

I live in Elgin, where I'm an actor with a day job. My primary gig these days is as the mom on a webseries called The Deadersons, which is a black-and-white sitcom about a zombie family. I'm also working on getting up and running with a one-woman show about the Pre-Raphaelite model/artist/poet Elizabeth Siddal.

I volunteer with Costumers With a Cause as well, so I have a fair amount of character interaction with kids under my belt, as Rey as well as a few characters from other universes. Merida's costume from Once Upon a Time was my other major project last year besides Rey (I make a better Amy Manson than a Pixar teenager Mr. Green ), so I've been doing her quite a bit.

Very much not a cold weather person (and yet I moved to Chicagoland...), can't wait for spring so I can get my bike out and get back on the Fox River Trail.

Next costume I'll be submitting is Mara Jade (green tunic). I got a first version of her up and running (after saying I should for a looooooonnnggg time) for Wizard World last year, but I need to make some adjustments for RL purposes. After that I might try my hand at Hera (hey, I'm green all the time for The Deadersons anyway!), and I should come up with a background for that original Jedi garb I made way back in '99 and still wear sometimes.

Looking forward to meeting and trooping with folks! <3

Awesome!!

Thanks for the background...

and have seen "Costumers with a Cause" on many occasions and love to see that group out and about...

I am guessing that you will be at C2E2?
At this time I don't plan on going to C2E2 but I know a LOT of our members do go to that Con.

Yes, I'm planning to be at C2E2 for the full weekend. I'll be volunteering a shift or two at the CWC table, but can also be available for ours. I mostly hang around the cosplay lounge/family area anyway. :-)

There's a Disney/SW mashup group in the works for Sunday's back-to-back photoshoots, and I'll be "Rey Darling" that day. But Friday and Saturday dressing plans are still up in the air.
