I've posted a few times in various forums but have never actually introduced myself. First off my name is Mike, and I'm obviously a Paramedic that works in Queen Creek...a little town east of Phoenix, AZ. I was actually told about this website by predatormv at CIV when I talked to him about a Fett costume I bought off the 'bay....I know, I know, I hear the boo's coming. But I haven't worn it in public yet because I didn't want to misrepresent the Fett man by not have a "perfect" costume. I have contacted a few here about getting some new armor and FP Helmet (which is so sweet looking), as well as some new Knee darts (that I just got in the mail already). Hopefully I will be able to use some stuff from the costume I bought as well as some stuff from here so I can get out and wear the costume soon.
Being a life long Fett Fan (and yes I saw the original movie at the Mann Chinese Theater in CA) I never knew how many others were out there...here I mean that loved the Fett's. I've PM'd several people about their exceptional work on costumes and accessories. I hope to join the 501st when I'm done getting the right combination together for my costume, and eventually hope to get my wife involved as she wants to get a Stormtrooper costume together.
So, thanks for the inspiration to spend more of my hard earned money to keep my Fett habit alive and well for many years to come. Here's looking foward to many posts to come.
