Hey there folks!
TK-6591 reporting in!
I am 26 and ran in to my first 501st member about 3 years ago and a few months later I had my TK kit ordered and it all began. I brought that with to my first ever convention, SDCC 2012, and had a blast. I regretfully never trooped again partially due to busy job, but I was happy with what I made and figured I'll leave the important troops to those who do it best.
I then grew out of my TK as a result of an active lifestyle, and made goals to cosplay Bane from TDKR..however after finally realizing the cost of a screen accurate costume I went against it. If I was going to spend big money again I wanted it to be something I could really be proud of like Boba Fett! I have always been a huge fan of Boba Fett, like many, and I felt like it was time to join you folks over here for some proper guidance. I have also been sitting on a Han Solo in carbonite cast for about 6 months now that I plan on tackling first, and then on to building a ROTJ Boba Fett suit to stand beside it. For SDCC 2014 I will be resizing my TK to bring with, but if a Boba Fett suit is nearing completion by that time I may consider bringing that instead.
