My name is Russ Ellis, DZ-4042. I am a med-student and a single dad with a passion for Star Wars. I just got into the costuming game back in February and have made 2 Jawas ($600 EACH. Yea, I'm crazy, I know.) and my Tusken Riader. I'll be more than happy to share pics if anyone wants. I had my first troop a couple weeks ago - Adventurecon in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. It was AWESOME! I won best Star Wars costume in the costume contest and my son (Jawa #1) won best in show in the kids category. I can't wait until my next troop! Unfortunately, my school schedule will prevent me from attending CV :0( . Oh well. . . the life of a med student I suppose.
