Hello all from future member (I hope)

Postby Corsair » Tue Dec 30, 2014 9:49 am

Hello to Bast Alpha! My name is Steve Schwarer and I've been a fan of Star Wars since standing in a blocks-long line in New Orleans in 1977.

Despite that, and the fact that my wife Tammey and I have been long-time costumers, and that I've known about the 501st for years, I've never done any Star Wars costuming. Huh. Sooo, I'm finally looking at rectifying that. I'm lucky enough to already know several members of Bast Alpha through other costuming venues and I will rely on their advice (and that of others here of course). Though I have a "dream build" (as I suppose we all do) I've realized I should start small and work up, so at present, I'll go "soft", with my focus on an Imperial Officers uniform. This will allow me to get rolling and be able to help out as a wrangler, etc. quickly, without the limitations that "hard" costumes impose.

I'll have to admit though, I've wanted to be a Kilted Trooper ever since meeting Keith Cassela at the ren faire years ago. There is is Keith, the truth is out.

My wife, on the other hand, has chosen to join the rebels as an X-wing pilot. Sigh. Well, maybe I'll be able to get her to see reason some day and join the dark side.

Well, there ya go. We're looking forward to eventually being a part of the 501st/Bast Alpha and the Rebel Legion/Degobah Base family.

Hey, Steve! Welcome!

Have you decided whether you want to do the gray or black imp officer uniform?

There's a wealth of information out there in regards to that type of uniform, and quite a few knowledgeable troopers within the garrison who can definitely help point you in the right direction.

http://www.imperialofficer.com/forum/

That's the best online resource to start poking around in. YOu also may have noticed that Anovos is offering pre-orders on an Imp suit for an obnoxious amount of money. WHile it's definitely an amazing suit, you can have your own custom crafted for much MUCH less than their cost.

Look forward to meeting you! Good luck!
I find your lack of cheese disturbing.

Welcome and as for an affordable costume, I push biker scout. (may have a little to do with me being one) you can do the whole build for about $1000 or less. Look forward to trooping with you.

Oh and to answer Scribbles, I've chosen to go with the Imperial Line Officer's uniform.

Steve,

Welcome to the Bast Alpha Garrison forum. We are very glad to have you. That is awesome you want to be not only a trooper but a kilted trooper. Several of us are kilted troopers as well.

This is a pic of me kilted in my Shadow Stormtrooper at the Ren fair.

You will be excited to know that there is an organized Kilted Trooper Brigade that you can join as well. Here is the link --> http://www.501ktb.com/forum/index.php

That is cool your wife is an X-Wing pilot in Dagobah, can't have the Bad Guys with out the good guys. ;) And who would we have to miss shooting at. :lol:

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask, we have a lot of helpful and knowledgeable members in Bast Alpha.
