Hello from Follansbee, WV

Post by JLock316 » Fri May 03, 2019 9:23 pm

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.

Welcome. One of our garrison membership liaisons should be in touch soon and get you signed up with an advisor in our academy. Any questions in the mean time, please feel free to ask.

I am in the follansbee area regularly with my day job. I will be in Newell on the evening of the 13th if you want to meet up.

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.
