As usual I'm a little late on this but it's because of my job. I'm a middle school P.E. teacher and the 7th grade football coach. Once school starts for the first three months I have no life outside of work, with exception to my historical fencing practices and tourneys. Maybe one day I'll actually make some considerable progress on my Fett suit.
(sidenote we won our first game this morning 36-6.)
I was lucky enough to land a job as a graphic artist in my home town about 15 years ago. I worked in the press room for the first year then moved to table artist the next year. After about 8 years we got rid of the tables and went to computers. We have been a MAC based company since then.
Main program used, Adobe Illustrator.
I am a special fx artist and puppeteer for film/tv. I also do freelance sculpting for toy companies and private comissions displays on the side.
and now a Fett obsessed broke dude ..lol.....
I started as a framer, then trim carpenter, then cabinet maker, then drafter, now...I am a Project MAnager/Designer for a local millwork and casework company. Basically, I take architects basic detail drawings and I make them feasable shop plans.
Kinda boring but it keeps me busy until ILM decides that they need me for something...
Known for my incredibly huge..........

Been doing this since 1994, seen a lot, but I can't think of anything else that I would rather be doing. I may never be rich but I did not get into it for the money. Nice to know that I am in good company here on TDH.
Well I'm up here in the great white north (Canada).
Former specialzied infantry who now does Corporate investigations and executive protections.

Like I always welcome to any new member to the forum....WELCOME to the great family of TDH, and expect to break your "Piggy Bank" sooner than expected, plus be looking around for an extra Part-time job!
Seriously, this will be a time and money consuming hobby (with either Fett in this case). It's complicated and detailed. NOTE: Read the posts of your interest, specially the OLD ones (4-5 pages back from present or last posts) to look for the answers you're looking for, before you post a question that has an answer and is there somewhere (even with pics or tutorials sometimes).
Enjoy and ....HAPPY HUNTING!...literally!
I assume youre welcoming me
Im not at all new to this hobby..Ive been breaking my bank for many many years...I am one of the original 10 members of the 501st, if that gives you a clue how long Ive been in the game..lol
I just now started wanting a Fett though..after I saw Rogue Studios at DCon this year..
I am a father of twins (Emma and Zachary) and a high school history teacher. The father gig is full time and the most fufilling....well the teaching part is pretty good too.
I'm a hot truckin' momma!!!! Seriously, Soju and I are now truckers...GOOD living, bad life. We just got back from four weeks on the road, and ****, does it feel nice to relax. We went through 39 states, though. Unless you live in the very northeastern tip of the country (north and east of NY) or Kansas (don't ask me HOW we ALWAYS managed to miss Kansas), we visited your fine state!

Previously I was a manager for Uhaul. I worked in one in Baltimore MD. It was a pretty rough area, I knew most of my county police by name as they were always in the store. We used to sit on our building roof with a pellet gun and take pot shots at hookers using our trucks to turn tricks.
Before that I had quite a few odd jobs mostly in fast food but my 2nd favorite of all time was working in a Halloween shop (bastiches still owe me two paychecks).

Project Manager and Sytems Administrator at IBM (Global Services) though I desperately want to either go dedicated PM within IBM --- or more likely the need exists to get out of IBM and into full time PM work at someplace that treats me a little better, pays me closer to what I'm worth, and lets me do the work I'm trained to do and talented in...
Or ... let my comic concept come to life and have a career there...
Or... finally get my **** Ph.D. and persue a teaching job since it's one of those things I've always wanted to do. It's either that or get my J.D. and become a swarthy lawyer type.

For the past two years my job was catching shop lifters for a large retail company. I had a lot of fun doing this for a living, but eventually got a little burned out. Any apprehensions I made under $500 got to be boring. I started looking for something more rewarding... and I found it.
I am now a police officer in Sedalia, Missouri. I got the call that I had been accepted December 16th. I start at the Academy on January 5th. I am very excited and can't wait to get started in my new career. I know a lot of Fett-aholics are in law enforcement, and I only have one question: how do I convince the department to add jet packs and/or gauntlets to the uniform?
