    This request just came in so it is short notice, but it's a special one for Dreams and Wishes. It's also a business day during business hours, so understandably tough but hopefully we've got a few folks that could make it. Event Name: Abby's wish Venue: Rossview Elementary in Clarksville, TN Venue address: 2235 Cardinal Lane Clarksville , Tennessee 37043 USA Event Start: 6/30 - 10:30am Event End: 6/30 - Noon Event Website: Expected number of attendees: Requested number of characters: 5 Requested character types: Secure changing/staging area: Yes Can troopers carry blasters: Yes Can troopers carry/bring props like lightsabers and staffs: Yes Is parking available: Yes Is venue accessible to those with limited mobility: Yes Amenities available at venue: Restrooms, snacks, just let me know why you need Comments: Abby is 4 and has a terminal brain tumor. She worships her big brother who is 9. Her wish is to ride the school bus with her brother. The bus will pick her up at 10:30 am and take the family to the elementary school where we will surprise her with a little party. We have a few princesses coming and I would love to have a Star Wars character there for the brother, Ty. He loves his little sister so much and does everything he can to help take care of her. I wanted to do this for him so he too will feel like it's his special day. If you have any questions just let me know. I know this is a difficult time for most people since it's a Thursday and it's during normal working hours so thank you for your consideration. I will also be submitting a press release for this wish event.

  8. Greetings from Nashville

    Hello, stranger! Good to see you here and looking forward to those Second Sister pics! The Inquisitors are favorites of mine.
  9. Finally got around to this

    Hey Melissa! We've met a couple of times, glad to see you here!
  10. Hello there

    Hello there and welcome to the boards. Like Ron mentioned, there are a ton of resources out there and a lot of people in the Garrison who are happy to help out with advice. We've all been there, starting out with our first kit. Let us know how we can help!
  11. Hello

    I would not recommend this kit/seller. It looks like most of the materials are 3D printed. Which can be ok, but requires a lot of extra work; that the seller might not put into it(print lines and their removal being the biggest hurdle). The pictures he includes look pretty good, but like Michael mentioned, that is not what you are getting. With the seller being in Russia, you could run into a situation where the quality may not be what you expected and it could take an extended period of time to work out any issues. Which leads to a final point, the seller is in Russia and in case you have missed the news this morning, Russia is about to find itself massively sanctioned which could lead to extended shipping times; and if you look at the reviews shipping times are an issue with this seller when Russia is not invading their neighbors... As attractive as "one stop shop" is, it rarely works out and you will often find people overcharging for the package deal.
  12. Hello

    Hello and Welcome! I can chime in a bit as I've got experience with the mando kits. You already hit on the main reason it is difficult to buy everything all at once or together: the Fett kits are very detailed and have many different pieces using a large variety of materials, so there is no one vendor of quality that makes all of them. You'll find different vendors that can make many of the individual pieces and from there put together the kit. If you do some research on the Dented Helmet site you'll find reputable vendors for different items. There are also certain pieces that are very custom to you, such as the armor. If purchasing these pieces, you would need to provide very specific measurements to ensure the proper fit. There is also the option of making some parts yourself, which would save on time and money. Fett armor pieces can be crafted from materials like Expanded PVC(Sintra) for a fraction of the cost of buying them. And there are free templates and training materials to teach you how to do it. You mentioned the upcoming movie showing at the Pink Palace. I have it on good authority that there will be members of the local clan of the Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club on hand for that event. While there will not be a Boba or Jango present, they can offer up lots of good info on how to procure or make the different parts of their kits, as the parts are the same.

    Heya Matthew! Welcome to the forums. There are a ton of references out there for getting started(see above posts) and lots of people locally that can help as well. Looking forward to seeing your progress and welcome again!

    You can also check out Crowprops, he makes high quality boots. I got my TIE boots and Kylo boots from him and they are awesome. He'll ask for your specific measurements, so they are custom to you.
