    New to prop building

    So guys thought I would introduce myself im extremely new to prop building the very little experience I have has opened me up to a whole new hobby absolutely love it ( but am not very good at it in my opinion) which brings me to my main reason for getting into prop building, I would love to join either the rebel legion or the jedi costuming club but don't even know where to begin with my costume or which one to pick for that matter so if you guys wouldn't mind please leave some suggestions for me? thank you guys very much

    Hello Hansh0t1st
    Iam new to all this stuff too, but I think noone can help you in finding the thing that is yours.
    You are here on the dented helmet, so I guess, you like the bounty hunters. Find the one you like most and just start.
    I would start with a helmet, not with a suit. Because if it will never be a wearable costume, it could be a great display for the living room!!
    Just start! The rest is learning by doing and asking the right questions to reach your target.

    Re: New to prop building

    hello there .....If you are looking to join rebel legion or the jedi costuming club.. you might also try the RPF and The Rebel Legions Costuming Resources for more ideas.( not saying you shouldn't be on this site, because there is lots of great info that can be used in different aspects of prop making/painting/ etc) Like Post man said "noone can help you in finding the thing that is yours." Is there a character you have always been drawn to? Just having a deep love of the character you are doing will really drive the project and keep your interest in the whole process peaked.

    Good luck
