My name is Caleb Flaherty, I am not affiliated with any costuming group (yet!), I live in Brandenburg, I learned about the 501st just browsing the web several years ago, I would like to join the discussion board because I am looking to obtain information on the 501st before I submit for application. I am currently 17 and would like to be able to join as soon as I turn 18. I am in the progress of making a Kylo Ren costume, and I have been very active on the Sith Lord Detachment forum as well as the Knights of Ren Facebook page over the last month and a half. My costume is currently sitting around 30% complete, but I have a plan of attack. Shout-out to my old Science teacher Mr. Carman (aka KYRaptor on the forum) for helping point me in the right direction as well as Robbie from the Midsouth Facebook page. I turn 18 on October first for anyone wondering, and I feel it gives me a wide-enough window to get a good costume completed, but it is narrow enough to keep me on focus. Any advice would be 100% appreciated and I hope to get in the legion and meet you fine folks!
