First of all, hello to all of you. Being spurred on by my 9 year old, I've become more interested in participating than attending the local Star Wars events and from looking at the local guys that do some charity work, it looks llike alot of fun. I'm looking forward to building my first character costume.
That being said, I've got some questions some of you more experienced people maybe can answer:
I've seen the question of size being raised when determining what you decide to dress as. I'm 6'8" and 240lbs. From looking at some of the other posts, that might be a bit large to pull off some of the characters. I'm obviously drawn to the bounty hunters or I wouldn't be here, so Cad Bane came to mind. I know it might be complicated (and from what I've seen none of the groups have actually approved a costume foe him) but I'm sure with the resources and suggestions here it would be doable. Any other suggestions for a guy my size?
Is it wrong for me to contact other members asking for direction? I'm not trying to steal your thunder and I know you all have put alot of work into what you have done, but for a newbie like me finding ways to do things seems a bit daunting.
I'm in the Dallas area (actually closer to Denton). Is there a specific group that's local I could get in touch with?
Thanks again for taking the time to help me out with responses. I'm looking for ward to becoming a part of the bounty hunter universe.
