Hi everyone, I am new to rebel legion, I live in Omaha and am currently building a chewbacca wookie. I have the suit all haired up - needs some thinning and to add some grey hair, but it is basically done. Wookie feet are next and then the mask. I am hoping to be done around February or so. I am also going to do a ROTJ Luke and prob an x-wing pilot.

I will prob need some help casting the wookie mask. Is that something I could get help from the local Omaha people? I would like to meet everyone anyway and get to know people before embarking on the wookie mask.

I hope to meet everyone, I am still relatively new to Nebraska. I'm from so cal originally.

Hi James,

Welcome to the wonderful world of Star Wars costuming! Omaha is a great place to be since all of the groups get along and work together so well. In fact, the 501st Central Garrison lets us use their boards so that all event/group coordination can happen in one place. You should go register over at www.centralgarrison.org and introduce yourself there as well!

It'll be awesome to have a Chewbacca around! We have another person in Omaha working on Tarrful. Very Happy

Welcome to the Group James! Looks like you have a great start to Chewy. I dont know any mask makers in Omaha. There is a guy in Des Moines who makes masks I know. I can put you in touch with him if you'd like.

Like Rob mentioned, be sure to register over at the Central Garrisons boards. We do the majority of our planning of events on there so the groups dont step on each others toes.

Welcome James, very impressive line up of costumes, looking forward to seeing them all come together. As for wookie masks I am not sure if there is anyone local that has embarked on the wookie journey have you checked the this thread for any info? http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=400

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. I am looking forward to coming out sometime in the near future as an official rebel legion member. Chewy's mask might take me a little while to do, but the feet should be done by halloween. I am trying to get the X-wing pilot costume done fairly quickly so I can at least be an official member, and then finish up Chewy.

Rob,

It was nice getting to talk to you and James at Krypton this morning. Thanks for being so welcoming. I am excited about getting a costume together and joining up. Chewie is still a little bit away with the face casting and mask making, but my X-wing pilot should be done soon and probably a ROTJ Luke soon after that.

Still working on the wife to submit as Leia, haha, hopefully she will.

I have been approved as formal for my X-wing costume. I am now a member of the Rebel Legion. What should I do now?

Welcome to the pilot ranks!
your costume looks VERY good! well done.
As Jeremy said - you should register with Starfighter Command here
http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10384

That will get you you official. just put a post in that thread, that will do it. Then I will get you added to the squad list.

The majority of our events are via the 501st central garrison at http://www.centralgarrison.org/forum.php
if you have not already, you should register over there to get access to all the troops that occur. If you are not able to see the events, send me a PM.

Again, Welcome! I look forward to seeing you at a troop soon!
