Hello everyone, this is David from Franklin, TN. I am in process of building up a new-in-the-box Anovos kit I purchased from another area member. I am one of the original fans of Star Wars having poured over all the Starlog and Famous Monsters magazines that promoted the film ahead of the '77 release. Other than my family and my cycling (which I started riding in '81) nothing has remained with me for so long. The oldest object I bought with my own money is a DC Treasury Edition comic of the movie. As mentioned earlier, I am in the very early process of building my armor and am in a bit of a rush to complete before October 28th. My employer (Nissan) has become a advertising partner of Disney for Rogue One and they are planning a number of events to promote the new Star Wars Limited Edition Rogue (One) SUV. According to the Garrison site, one has been booked for the 28th. My goal is to complete armor and gain approval before then. It is a tall order, but I am hopeful none the less. I am known around the office as the Star Wars guy and it will mean a lot to me to be able to participate in this event as a trooper walking among my coworkers. I have only met a couple of the Garrison members (Chris M. and Marcus) and I am looking forward to meeting and working with many more. Chris and Marcus have been very helpful in getting me started and are a great reflection on the entire group. Lastly, I would like to submit a request to anyone in the Nashville area who would be willing to give me a hand in completing my build. It would be infinitely valuable to have someone around that has done this before. I will remember the gesture and will conveniently "remember to forget" my coin whenever I spot you at the pub.
I’m new at this but I have been a star wars fan since I was little. I was 4 when my mom brought me in her old nova to the drive in theater along with my blankets and pillows. I kept dozing off but I still can say I watched star wars when it originally came out. Now being a parent, I want to share that in real life with my only kid. There is nobody that I know of within an hour drive of me in the 501st, but I want to make a full movie accurate biker outfit anyway and a storm trooper. If I’m going to do it, why not make it perfect. I want to greet my 5yo little girl as she comes off the bus from preschool in full costume before putting her on the 4 wheeler and motoring back to the house or the barn. I used to make armor in the SCA (medieval reenacting) I'd love to make a whole suit with aluminum or stainless steel. I think I'd like to start with an ABS one first.
