Hello there! Aspiring member here

Post by Shootingstar127 » Tue Feb 28, 2023 7:36 pm

Hello there!
My name is Rachel and I’m so exciting to hopefully meet you all! A little about me: I’m a mom of three younglings and we have lived in Ahwatukee for about three years now. I work for a law firm and have always been interested in cosplay but never made the time. This is the year!
After going down the rabbit hole of Star Wars Legends books, I’ve decided that my life won’t be complete without a whole Mara Jade costume. Any tips for completing her are welcome! I’m particularly frustrated by the knee/shin guards already, and I’ve only just begun.
I love the idea of using cosplay for a good cause, and really hope to be active with charity work if and when I get approved! I don’t have much of a circle here in AZ yet, and really look forward to doing good with “my people”
Thanks for reading, and really looking forward to meeting y’all!

Hi, Rachel

Mara Jade is such a great character to choose for your first! Looking forward to meeting you and I'm sure a few of our other members would be happy to help offer some suggestions. If you're available, we'll be having a meet and greet this month (stay tuned for more details once they are finalized). That would be a great way to meet some fellow members. If you have any questions feel free to reach out.

Welcome to the Dune Sea Rachel! That's great you want to do a Mara Jade! I would encourage you to check out the Costume Requirements Listing for her here: https://databank.501st.com/databank/Cos ... clipse_CRL. The detachments are the "experts" on the costumes under their umbrella so I would also invite you to reach out to the Flagship Eclipse Detachment here: https://www.theflagshipeclipse.com/ They can help you source the materials and give you advise as to how best to build your costume. Best of luck to you!!

Welcome to the Forums Rachel. As Peter mentioned the detachments have a wealth of information and are a great source for finding what does and doesn't work that is specific to each costume they represent. I look forward to meeting you in the future and best of luck finishing your kit without too many roadblocks. Once you get going though it goes faster and faster.

Welcome aboard.

My wife was able to complete a Mara Jade last year. You can always reach out to her as well. Red Head MJ here on the forums.
