I've been lurking for awhile and finally joined up. I thought I would take a moment to say hi and introduce myself.
My name is Sean and I'm 37 years old. I live in Northern California. I'm a Federal Agent and an Army Reserve Drill Sergeant. I just got back from a year tour in Afghanistan in February.
Star Wars has been a huge passion of mine since the movies first came out. I've been costuming all my life but got serious about it 12 years ago. I also collect Star Wars and Batman collector items.
My staple is batman. In 2006 I was the official 2006 California State Fair Batman which was a great experience and I had the opportunity to meet some great celebreties. I still do Batman hospital visits quite a bit and I'm a regular at Brotherhood of the Bat forum but I start here as a newbie with 2 posts counts at this point.
I belong to the 501st Central California Garrison (TK2624). I was putting together a Darth Maul but my heart wasn't in the right place and I've always wanted to do a BF. So I'm getting rid of the DM pieces and going all in on this project. I've already contacted some of you about certain pieces and have already started to acquire them as well. I'm not an artistic person so I'll need to contact even more people about services they may have time for in their busy schedules.
I've spent hours reading through the forums and there's some awesome information there. You guys seem like a great board and I look forward to getting to know you guys much better.
