My name is Aaron from Victoria, BC. I'm a media arts teacher and photographer.
I finished a Rocketeer outfit for Halloween last year and now I'm going for a ROTJ Fett! Budget is here and there right now, but I'm hoping that with some careful planning I can get it all done for Halloween 2014 or at the latest, the opening of Episode VII.
We don't have many troops in the 501st out here. If I read correctly, I'm part of the Badlands Garrison which makes up all of British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan....with a total of 30 troops. So I'd like to be able to do my part, make a kick *** Fett, and support some local charities. I know when I'm at conventions or events and have seen Star Wars characters trooping around, it just lights me up...and I'm 30. So I can only imagine what it would do for kids.
Looking forward to posting a build thread when I start!
