New in Lafayette

Post by DeepCmonkey »

Hey everyone!

First I would like to thank Paul Gary and Earl for helping me out with my password issues. Thanks guys!

SO long time follower and part time Fett builder. I finally got fed up with the depth and time it was taking me working on a ROTJ Fett.

I'm Planning on doing at 181st TI :tie: and my wife wants a Juno Eclipse :officer: costume, mean while I'll still be piecing my feet together. I met a few people from Bast Alpha on Free Comic day here in Lafayette. Everyone seems super awesome and my wife and I are really excited about joining the community!

I'm also into the X-wing miniatures game if there's anyone on here in the Laffy area that wants to play please send me a message!!

Great to finally get in here and start out my path of getting into the 501st Legion!

If I'm on shore for the 7th I would love to come out and help!

Right now I'm looking for a local seamstress to do a Juno Eclipse outfit and a 181st TI jumpsuit for My wife and I. Looking for a price on those two main items. I have most the other pieces priced out, just wanting to get those main parts priced and started saving towards.

Welcome! your first stop for anything and everything 181st is the Jolly Roger Squadron, where I will be assigned as your Cadet Mentor by Targ.

First stop there is the Boot Camp

and, ill say it now and I'll repeat it in the forum

Read, Research and Understand before you buy anything. There is a lot of JUNK out there being hakwed with the 501st approved label. Dont believe any of it. There is very little that is commercially produced and marketed on dot.bomb websites that meets our approval. I have a list of Squadron Approved vendors that I maintain. Wampa Wear is one of the few sites that we know is top quality, reasonably priced and very quick shipping when hes in stock.

Your first stop for your 181st is your Jacbkboots. They top out around size 10 1/2, so above that we typically use round toe motorcyle boots.

I have an active list of boot sources here:

we have talented seamstresses in the Garrison that can help with Juno, so that should not be a problem at all.

Good to have you with us!

Hi Jeremy,

I can help with the Juno and the 181st suit. I sent you a pm. Just contact me and we can discuss it further if you're interested.

Yay, another girl! Please come to the cane cutters game and see what we do. Or maybe the Dream Night at the Zoo in BR.
