New to the Party

I am quite new here and I just felt like officially stating my intentions 😉

I live in Ã…s, Norway and did so far help as a Supporter on 1 Troop, Desucon to be exact.
Since a while back I wanted to get in touch with the 501st, but I never really got around to it.

But then I meet TK-20501 on an event where we both did volunteer.
While sitting in medieval outfits, we had nothing better to do than talking about stuff that is even longer ago, and far far away :D
After that he did help me to get on the list as a Supporter on Desucon, thanks again for that, buddy.
I did meet some very nice people there, and I really look forward to meeting you all again.
Hanging around with people I liked, a franchise I love and having that combined with doing something meaningful really made me lick blood.
I plan to keep on helping as a Supporter, but I so, so, so, want my own darn Outfit.

After the Troop I could not resist and went on an online shopping spree.
So, I did order an Imperial Staff officer Uniform as Custom-Tailored Version on Cosplaysky,
a Hat by Galacticcostume on Etsy,
Belt, Codecylinders, Beltboxes, Rankbar and Greblie in R1 style from PhiloProps,
And then I got poor…. big feet and wide calves are not your friend when you try to find good looking riding boots,
in the end I did order them at Hessen Antique measured to my feet.

I hope that all parts will be here by beginning of September, and if the Force is with me I might have my membership when I pack my stuff to help on Kidsexpo.
I look forward to hopefully soon be a full member, have fun with all of you all,
and boss around some Stormtrooper´s as a R1 Staff Officer :p

Hi Piet

It was amazing having you as a supporter. It haven't been the same without you.

Its going to be awesome having you with as as a officer and bossing me around.

Welcome aboard! The cosplaysky uniform is a bit of hit-and-miss sizewise, though. The choice of a black one is definitely the right one (I've got a "green" one that looks lime compared to "real" green :P ) and while the workmanship of cosplaysky is most often fine, their ability to handle a tape measure is not. Do not be surprised in the least if you need to alter a fair amount of the uniform, but after that work it'll hopefully fit like a glove - as befits an Imperial officer!

Thx, jep did read much on the IOC Forum about how to best handle Cosplaysky, I just hope the Info´s, measurements and pictures I did send them now will assure a positive result.

Keyword being "hope". But if you've already read through the IOC forums, you're way, way ahead of most people already. I very much like your approach to things :D Can't wait to have you approved and trooping!
