I'm new!

Post by trooper89 » Thu Mar 04, 2010 8:55 pm

Hi guys. This is my virgin post.

When I was young, I was pretty fascinated by Star Wars and it is not the movie, but the cartoon! I'm a local in my 20s right now, and I have plans to join the 501th. However, I am cash-strapped and given that my art sucks, the products will look inferior.

I'm looking to be a royal guard or a trooper like most of the guys here, and have thought of being Darth Vader which simply excites me.

In the meanwhile, I will lurk around in this forum and hopefully in a few years time I can get my first costume done. Cheers! :wink:

Thanks for the warm welcome. I can't wait to get my very own costume laid on my own hands once I have prepared everything! :lol:

the cost of building it will be around the same price.. just to give u the heads up on how much you should set aside.. preferrably around 1200-1300 to be on the safe side

You may want to speak to Dom, our current IRG. ;) He can offer some tips and possible current cost for the costume.
Think good to allocate SGD500+ for it?


My infos are all rusty as I haven't touch (or rather redo) my ROTJ-CE IRG in ages; am "busy" with my TB, IC, ID and TI these days :oops:
The whole suit cost me way less than SGD250 anyway back in 2001 (with the bulk of cost going towards the Don Post Helmet and a bit for tailoring of my Inner Robe. Velvet used was the Cheapo/Thin one so Wind was my enemy! :lol: )
