Greetings!

So I am new around here and wanted to go ahead with introducing myself. Currently I am working on putting together a generic Jedi costume and just ordered my first saber parts from Sabe Forge.

Recently I attended Star Wars celebration in Orlando and was completely inspired by the vast number of cosplayers that made me ask myself, "why in the world don't I do this?" Well here I am and starting my journey to creation and, hopefully, approval.

I do have a questions for other Jedi though as to if anyone knows some good tailors they could suggest in the Charlotte region. My skills with a needle and thread are...lacking to say the least.

I look forward to talking, discussing, commenting, and hopefully meeting someday in the future!

May the Force be with you. Ben

I don't know of anyone specifically, other than maybe Lizfett?? You could PM her here and see if she takes commissions.

I also know of others in the legion (for example, Woodman) who does commissions on jedi. You can find him over in the Star Wars for sale forums...

I understand! It's so daunting to take on that first costume! Good luck! There's lots of good advice in the Rebel Legion forums. Hopefully that will help you figure out all the pieces and see what people suggest. Hang in there!

It has been quite some time since I posted on here, but my outfit is being built for me ^_^

I am looking forward to submitting and hopefully getting to meet some more of you. Is most of the communication done here through the forums? Smile

Looking forward to meeting you and trooping with you.

I'm from the Charlotte area as well. Look for me at HeroesCon, I'll be a Rebel Pilot on Saturday and a Tusken Raider on Sunday.
