I am BRAND NEW to these forums, and pretty much the whole costuming world. I have a deep love and respect for all things Star Wars and have always daydreamed about getting involved in costuming, though. I've always had a special soft spot in my heart for the most ruthless bounty hunter in the galaxy, and recently getting started on Karen Traviss's Republic Commando novels has made me fall in love with the Mando'a all over again.
What I wanted to ask of all you wonderful experienced people, keeping in mind that I have no experience, minute funds (university student! ) but a VERY LARGE imagination, is, where do I start? I've had thoughts of trekking down to my local military surplus store for basics and doodads - what do I need to know? I know this is a big undertaking, so let's start with baby steps.
Thanks all, looking forward to getting to know you!
