    New To TDH

    Hi Everyone!
    I am just another new guy ! I am an avid collector, and recently I got the bug to put together and collect full costume movie props. I started mostly buying used armor costumes, and later began to put kits together. I found that putting together your own costumes had its benefits ( costs, proper sizing, customizing, etc), however talk about growing pains . My first dremmel experience was straight out of a sitcom. There was point when I realized that I needed a little help. That's when I came along TDH. I, like many others, have been looking through this site for a while. The information, advice, products, and friendship in this group is incredible! You have a wealth of knowledge, and you don't hesitate to share it with eachother. And the props are amazing!!! Just yesterday, I read a thread on how to heat fiberglass chest plates and reshape them. I was a bit nervous (and I did it with a fire extinguisher next to me, LOL!), but it worked like a charm! So, I decided to become a member. If only for the simple reason to post this, and to say THANK YOU to all of you! I really have appreciated all of your help thus far.
    Well, enough of this lengthy intro. I look forward to my stay with you. Cheers! .

    Hey Firespray Pilot!

    Welcome!

    I'll tell you a little secret... I wasn't much a huge Boba fan but a StormTrooper nut when I first signed-up here. Let me tell you - this place changed that VERY quickly! I went from admiration and just looking for advice on a Boba helmet to wanting to do a full ESB costume! This place is FANTASTIC for a first-timer like me - the advice on builds/supplies/painting carries from Boba to just about EVERYTHING you could ever want to build!!! This is the first place I check when I go online! These guys should charge for all the info here!

    The only problem is now we hooked you - were not letting you go!

    So again welcome - your gonna have a BLAST!

    Dave

    You're very welcome and welcome to the board! Yeah, it felt a little weird the first time I put fiberglass armor in the oven to reshape
