Well Hello all. My name is Brian Bates, I work for a college book publisher(yes the devil) in Northern Kentucky. I watched the 501st grow through the years and am looking to possibly give it a go and try to join your amazing ranks.
I am a father of a 22 month old, my little angel Stella and am married to my best friend Kristin.
I am new to this whole costume thing so I am not even sure where to start. I have looked over the 501st page and have a few possibilities I would like to explore for submission. I know creating this outfit isn't cheap but I am definitely interested in doing it myself. How do I get started? What kind of money is involved in getting started? Is there anyone near me also into this?
Thank you for your time.
