Hello everyone! My name's Amanda. I currently live in Charlottesville (yeah, that Charlottesville. The one with that statue that's been a source of... controversy). The good news is all of that nonsense is long gone, and I can focus on much better things, like costuming!

I've built a Jawa costume and am in process of (hopefully!) getting it approved so I can hang with you guys. I'm really excited! Browsing the forums as a guest shows that everyone here seems pretty awesome and wildly helpful.

As for me, I'm not the most die-hard Star Wars fan out there, but I truly appreciate the movies, the books, the games... And what it did for Sci-Fi in the mainstream realm. I'm excited to do charity work while in costume... after all, what's better than ONE fun thing? TWO of them together!

Aside from this, I enjoy video games, board games, and writing. Hope to make some new friends here soon!

~Amanda

Welcome Amanda. I love your comment about "two fun things together", but really it's at least three fun things together, costuming, charity work, and making friends. Once you're approved hopefully we'll get to troop together.

Welcome. I work in Charlottesville. I posted this on the GT boards, but hopefully you can attend one of the premiere events in C'ville this weekend.

Thank you! Such a warm welcome! I'll certainly be at the Violet Crown on Saturday. I'm strongly considering Friday as well. The 501st already approved my app so I'll be trooping my jawa with them. I'm excited to meet you guys!

Hi! I know this is an old thread but I have to jump in. I just became a Rebel Legion member this week with my battle Rey costume.
I’m in Charlottesville, too! I moved here a year ago from Richmond, and before Richmond I grew up in the Hampton Roads area. I’m still around all of these areas pretty frequently. Really cool to see others in town though.

Welcome!! Battle Rey is totally legit. Congrats! It's nice to see others out in CVille! Most of the troops I end up at are in Richmond (we need more folks to have troops down here, agh!)... Hope to see you around sometime!
