    Why I enjoy this hobby.

    There are many things that I really enjoy out of this hobby; from making the props out of everyday things that normal people wouldn't possibly imagine, to that final step of painting and seeing the things you have spent so many hours to perfect, finally come together.

    However, one of the things I enjoy the most is seeing the smiles on children's faces when they see their favorite Star Wars character come to life.

    Today I did a small birthday party for a friend who's son turned five, and I gave him my Rubies Helmet that I test-colored my paints with. This is probably one of my favorite pictures I have of me in costume, and I thought I'd share it.

    YES! I feel you on that 110% I wore my costume for the 1st time at Otakon and I loved the amazement of everyones face seeing Fett, but nothing compared to the joy of the little kid dressed as Boba... he was the highlight of my trooping there.

    I agree. The smile on a kids face says it all. You can't replace that feeling either.
