Hiyas! Noob here!

Recommended Posts

My name is Elizabeth Mckinnon! I am from Knoxville. I know Steven Lewis. I have always been interested in making my own Storm Trooper armor since I was still in High School. I have been going to Dragon*Con for the last 9 years and always admire the work you all put into your armor. I love costuming. My latest was a Velociraptor from Jurassic Park. I wore it to this last D*C.

I am ready to start my next adventure on making a Stromtrooper! I really really want to make Boba fett but I have been told to start off with the basic ST from ANH. I have no clue where to start. I have found sites that have some tutorials.

It was great seeing some of you at the Ice Bears game tonight!

Welcome to the MSG Elizabeth, feel free to come out to an event sometime and hang out with us. You can see the costumes up close and talk shop.

Is this your Velociraptor from Dragon*Con?

Elizabeth Welcome. Saw your Raptor at Dragon*Con and I know you spoke to one of our Dinosaur fans Dan Peterson who has several Reptile costumes and pets. Looking forward to having more great costume talent in the Garrison.

Hi! I saw you at D*Con, and thought you looked awesome!

How many people walked by and said 'Clever girl...'?

My sons are SO into dinosaurs and would probably collectively crap their pants if they saw you in person, haha.

Welcome!

Welcome!

I call my raptor suit Clever Girl! lol I actually just wore the head around quoting Philsoraptor lol! I seem to scare little children. Even kids who LOVE Dinosaurs are scared to get near me. My handler will hold my mouth shut so kids can pet me! :lol:

My little girls LOVED you! One was wearing a Vader bow and the other was wearing a Stormtrooper!

I have been pricing Boba Fett so 500 sounds soooo much better! I really really want to make Boba but just his armor unfinished I priced at 1900! Thought he would be less because he is wearing less armor but it's all his details.

Point me in the right direction on who I need to talk to! I am chomping at the bit to get started! ;)

Dizzy, get going on your TK. I'm starting to get the Boba Bug myself so maybe we can do a dual build in the fall?
