Re: Wizard World Chicago

Up in the air if I will be attending. Just made the investment in a dog today :mrgreen: I stayed at the Embassy Suites which is directly connected to the convention center with the Skywalk. It is a very nice hotel, but a bit pricy if I remembers correctly (best to look for online deals or see if any...

Re: any May the 4th events?

Keep an eye on the "Unconfirmed" area of the event board. I am seeing a lot of requests come in regarding that date and FCBD as well.

Re: New Biker Scout

Hey guys, I'm new to cosplay and would like to get some info on where to get the armor for a Biker Scout. Also, if I were to paint it black or camo would that effect membership?

Even $650 is not bad if it comes with the finished bucket.

Re: Snowtrooper

We should make it a goal to have more Snowys than TK's :lol: It is Michigan after all. If this keeps up we could have the most in the Legion. I know out west there are a few others. When we are done won't we be at the 13-14 mark of Snowtroopers in the GLG ?

Re: Snowtrooper

BREWSKI .. if I'm correct, I think you got your Mukluks from the same guy I got mine from on eBay. If so, they are in very good shape! Joe I believe so. They got here last week, almost look brand new, fit perfectly. Which is a surprise because I have very small feet ;) MCCC will be my first wearing...

Re: Submission Photo Advice

It is amazing how fast the times change :cool: Soon you will be able to wear a camera in your eye. The contact camera, linked to your brain and activated when you want a photo. Of course Google Glass can do that too.

Re: Submission Photo Advice

I know cell phone cameras have come a long way, but be cautious. Although 16 Megapixels should do the trick ;) I ended up using a high end camera for pics when it was all said and done. But my first photos were taken with an iPhone 4s :lol: (8 Megapixels if I am not mistaken)

Just be sure not to cut the ears completely flat :lol: I have seen a few friends do that and had to order new parts. Golden rule: Measure twice cut once :thumbs:

Re: My Big Brown Box Arrived!

Take it slow, one part at a time. Most start with the Biceps and smaller armor first. Helmet can be difficult with ear pieces and screws (note I am not an expert by any means and my "bucket" was built by another member) Best of luck with your build. Be sure to post pictures here and FISD to get buil...

Re: Ebay Find?

The problem with some of the older armor is some members were grandfathered in with the old suits which are now not 501st approved without some major modifications. Personally I would never buy any gear off of Ebay, you can't trust the product you will get. Post up on FISD too to get opinions there....
