Hello from Follansbee, WV

Hi, everybody. My name is Jason Lockhart and I am from Follansbee, West Virginia in the northern panhandle. I am 44 years old and have been a Star Wars fan my entire life. I remember seeing A New Hope at a drive-in as a toddler and have been hooked ever since. I have had a few interactions with the 501st at different cons and such and can't wait to start trooping. I am planning on doing some Rex (phase 2) armor. He is my favorite clone. I am going to have a ton of questions since this is my first attempt at top end costuming. I plan on getting my kit from Imperial Surplus since I have heard good things about them. My only issue is size. I watched a video that says he sized it mainly to fit him at 5'10" and 175. I am 5'10 and around 240 (trying to lose weight) so I can imagine the abdominal part and possibly cod piece will need some resizing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks, Darth Boyer. I am doing ok right now with researching and such. I am sure I will have a million questions when I actually start building my armor.
