    What does your sign on name stand for???

    I know this is a little odd but it should turn out fun as well. So all you need to do is explain why you have that sign on name and what it means. Mine is whistle8mp because in the town I grew up in my buddys and I used to hang out on the railroad tracks, I must have been fourteen and every time there was a road crossing there was a granite post in the ground that had a W and a number under it to let the conductor know when to blow his whistle. So we used to hand out at W 8 hence whistle8. Well I'm not going to get into it but there was a tragic event that happened one summer day that I will never forget so I have whistle8mp to remember that spot and to never forget my friend.The mp are my initials.

    Wow... I wish mine had childhood memories for me.

    alas, my name is my custom Mando and now my custom Jedi.

    Mine comes from my adult leader training in Boy Scouts of America known as Woodbadge.Scout leader training that has been around since the early 1900's.
    At the start of this 6 day training particpates are broken up into patrols.I was in the Antelope patrol.During that week we were called "lopers" so when I came home and needed a Star Warsy name I dropped the "s" and put a "o" and thus became "Lopero"

    at work, i used to be introduced to people as "the stormtrooper guy"

    i was going by tk7602, my 501st id, but that didn't really stick in anyone's memory.

    so stormtrooperguy it is.

    and that's my web site too, so it's easy.

    Sgt. Skirata from Karen Traviss books. The character seemed a lot like me. I used to be a Therapist in my old life. I would take the juvenile delinquents in my care on survival hikes and teach them survival skills. Most of them knew I also owned two of the town's only dojo. Most of them had never been out of the city. Or even had an adult give them any measure of trust.
    It seemed I was always being approached by old students of one type or another and thanked for the very hard earned lessons they learned. I always tell them they did all the work.

    I'm straight edge and the x's are symbols of it. so xfettx it is. for those that dont know what straight edge is, it's a lifestyle of no drugs, no drinking, and not being promiscuous. claimed it for over 11 years, never touched alcohol or drugs in my life. 25 years old (26 as of tomorrow) and enjoying life.

    My nickname is Jake. I am a "CO" or Correctional Officer by profession. Put the two together and came up with Cojake.

    Good for you, bro. it's hard ot live that life, but the fast that you're 25 and still strong is a great example to the rest.

    well, I was trying to think up a name for myself. at first, I was wanting a Jango or Boba suit. I originally thought of Infrared as my name. Infrared, is just basically cameras that can pick up heat or coolness. then, I just thought InfraFett, and I liked it.

    He he this is fun!

    Im a musician and got into electronic music in about 1995 - started making mechanical music but found out about chiptunes and I LOVE old videogame sounds/songs... reminds me of hours and hours in the arcade...

    So my music is kinda childish and kinda mechanical - I imagine how I'd say it when I were a kid - so its mckenical - hence mckenic

    Somewhat self explanatory...

    I chose it in part because I always loved sword fighting and used to be a nationally ranked epee fencer. Prior to the SW prequels, Val Kilmer's fight scenes in Willow were some of the coolest.

    In all seriousness, this name was first started on The custom saber shop back in early 2006 and it has stuck for all my costuming forums. Its easy to remember my name.

    Just walked into my High school band room one day after mooching some money off of the purcussionist's for lunch (an art form to those who know what I mean) and a trumpet player yelled over to me, "hey, tubachris! Get over here!" The rest is just a random set of numbers

    Well mine has been derived from a nickname MOJO, this was due to the fact that I was and still a huge 'Doors' fan and the anagram of Jim Morrison (also lyrics from one of their songs) was 'MR MOJO RISIN' that and I'm a Fett fan... thus was born Mojo-Fett

    Well I work as a Lighting and Sound Technician in the Theatrical entertainment industry. I kinda do a whole lot of everything as a technician but lighting was what I started out in and is still my favorite part of the industry. So yeah Light_Tech just kinda stuck.

    One of these days when I get my suit put back together I'll take some of the extra fixtures at work and do up a photo shoot and get some good shots.

    Later
