  1. Nice! Goes right in there with kilted Revan and the drummer!
  2. Glad to see you've not only done your homework but you're already making some great upgrades! Keep it up, and let us know if there's anything we can do to help!
  3. Based on your previous work, I am completely thrilled to see you working on something else. I look forward to watching this develop. Please let us know if you need any assistance along the way.
  4. I'd like to see a First Order detachment honestly. There's enough differences across the board in many of the costumes. Plenty of similarities, but we separated Clone from TK and they're both white armor.
  5. Hi Ion, glad to have you. http://www.theflagshipeclipse.com/forums/index.php?/forum/95-eu-character-research-discussions/is our thread for costumes we're working on but may not yet have approved. I've been dying to see some Dread Masters, so extra kudos there, I like the older mask myself, but that's what I remember from those cutscenes. Please let us know if you need any assistance at all, we're here every step of the way. Glad you found us Panzer, as always, don't hesitate to ask, we're here to help. Welcome Matt! We've got info for that! Be sure to dig in, and ask questions! Welcome Julie! Thanks for the link! If you start a discussion thread we'll be able to bounce ideas back and forth. Private messages are also great too if you need. Welcome Brother. (Air Force, currently applying Dept of Treasury). I'm glad this club can provide all your needs in a hobby, it's truly rewarding the first time some little boy or girl gives you a big hug (and even when they run away terrified). If you haven't already, feel free to start your own thread if you need to and get some direct comments. if you're not getting the help you need, please let me know. Welcome Ky! There's always a high demand for folks with sewing skills. Naturally you have to be kind of careful how you advertise, but be sure to check out threads like this one, and various build threads to see if anyone needs help! Welcome SNK, I know the feeling. It was only at E-4 that I started really having fun money. I do miss that sweet E-5 check, but I'm hoping to be getting that GS-9 and even 11 soon. You've clearly done your research, try posting and reaching out here. Mynock is generally your guy. But if that doesn't work, I have a fairly short list of other names I may be able to help you find another option. Lemme know.
  6. Hi Marissa we're always here to help with whatever you decide to do. Welcome Lao, be sure to get a WIP thread started of your own and we'll be happy to help you out! Hi Michael. Glad to have you on board. Try asking in the Nihilus threads but let me know if you have any problems finding that information. Greetings Master. If your friends need help figuring out who your local unit is, let me know, I'll try to help. As for Kylo Ren, we've got some great threads here, so be sure to dig in if you haven't already. We're here to help with anything you need Luc. Let us know. You've got some great folks in Singapore also who I am sure can also help.
  7. Hey Christopher, I know that feeling. My wife is currently making a Jedi, I was impressed she made her own forum account over there. Though I'm definitely the costumer in the house myself. We're happy to help in any way we can, Sinya is a great option and I look forward to seeing your progress. Hi Fran. Welcome. We're happy to help you with whatever you need along the way.
  8. Excellent to hear Mike! Glad to hear you're mentoring folks to help bring them in! Outstanding! They're naturally welcome to make an account here, but your access will be even more helpful. Please let us know if you have any questions along the way.
  9. Welcome Jon, we've got a lot of great links out there. Be sure to read up and ask questions. Enjoy your stay! Hi Steve, we've got some great tutorials out there to help you, but if you have any questions, we're here to help. Hi Fritz, welcome! The real answer is something you need to decide, for sure. For all the time, money and energy we put into our craft, you're the one who has to be happy with the decision. Hi Lucas! Welcome. We have a few good threads going on both those kits. If you're missing any information, feel free to ask around and get the info you need. Welcome Waffle. We've got a lot of costumers out there for both those options, so we can definitely help you along the way. Check out the existing threads and we're here to answer any questions.
  10. Welcome Callum, glad to see you're getting involved even if you're not official yet! That's the best part of getting to know your new family. Welcome aboard, as always feel free to start your own WIP as well as get into the nitty gritty of what other folks have already done, there's loads of information out there! Hi Kaylan, welcome to Flagship. Costumes around here tend to be a little more difficult for a lot of reasons. As always, gather your research, see what other folks have already done, and blaze trails of your own when needed. We're here to help you along the way. Also, don't forget to grab your local folks and get their input, remember, they all were in your shoes at one point.
  11. I love it Casey, as with everything we do around here, start with Research, Research, Research. Get every possible screenshot you can, with every possible angle, and we will help you in any way we can. Once you've got some good research started, feel free to share what you have and tell us what you're thinking. Welcome.
  12. Hi Jérôme We are definitely here to help however we can. You might not be a member yet, but definitely reach out to your local Troopers also as they will be one of your greatest assets to get things rolling. We're a global family, and it starts with meeting your local folks, even if they don't have much knowledge of the costume you plan to do, they can still help in a variety of ways. While you're here, don't hesitate to ask questions, our goal is to help you get the best information you can and make the best possible costume you want to build. Hi Heath, welcome. Thrawn actually falls under the Imperial Officer Corps for costuming, available here: http://www.imperialofficer.com/forum/ and if you're unable to get the access you need, I always suggest finding a local member in your Garrison (Like the GML, or just a helpful member) to help you view what you need to find. That being said, Flagship is home to many costumers who costume in many forms, not just the ones we have here, I'm a member of the IOC as well. We can certainly work to help you here if you ever need assistance. Welcome!
  13. Nice work Shelby, you're really on your way already. For any upgrades you may be looking for to get more accurate with your costume, be sure to dig in and see what information we have available. As always, check the original sources as well, and then feel free to ask questions you may have. Welcome! Welcome Shelly, I'm just spitting distance south of Omaha, so I hope to see you two at a troop some time. We've got all that information and more. If you have questions don't hesitate to ask, that's what we're here for. Welcome Tyler. Nihilus is one of our most popular costumes and as a result there's a lot of crafters out there and a lot of information. Be sure to check out the boards. Nefthys in particular is one of our costume mentors who specializes in that costume. Hi Anna, welcome. I'm sadly not caught up on the comics, but most of our costumes end up coming from comics and video games, if nothing else, we're familiar with staring at panels and trying to figure out what is going on. I suggest starting a research thread in our research section and include what source material you have available. Even if it doesn't end up with us in the long run, we're still happy to help develop a costume with you.

    Sinya WIP

    Nice progress so far. Keep it up!
  15. If I recall, she created hers and BAM submitted a costume that still stands as one of my personal favorites in the unit. I don't remember her posting a lot of things other than the finished product. However, if you get to a point that you'd like to contact her, I can try and make that connection for you. Best of luck and use all resources you can, local and online! Welcome Zak, we have a lot of great folks, including the first Kylo Ren approval among our membership. We're glad to have you.
  16. Hi Charity, I'll be sure to get your forum status updated after I post this. I have a current costume that is going on 3 years, no sweat, just don't ever quit. Also, we, and your Garrison are here to help you every step of the way. Feel free to ask any questions you may have. Hey there Marco. Welcome. That is quite the list of costumes. I see dollar signs and lots of hours of work in your future. But there's nothing wrong with that. I'd say for the Acolyte, start over on those boards, dig around for information. Mynock's posts in particular are a good starting point. Then ask questions as you go. Hi Stephanie! Start a build thread over on the Mara section and we've got some great folks who can really help you with any areas to improve, or commend you on a job well done. Welcome Hunter, be sure to check out the threads we already have, and then start one of your own to help us better help you along the way. Hi Eliste congrats on your approval. Be sure to go over to the forums at 501st.com. Then Click MembershipDB on the left side of the screen, Then [Your Profile Data], then down to [Your Unit Affiliation] and then hit [Edit] You'll be able to add the Flagship Eclipse there. Please contact me directly if you have any troubles with that. jcam1228, on 09 Nov 2015 - 12:34 AM, said: Hello all, my name is Josh. I am currently looking at building a darth nihilus. If a should get accepted into th 501st I would be joining the Central Garrison. I look forward to interacting with you all and getting my costume started. Hi Josh, Central Garrison is my peoples. I troop with you all as much as I do my own Garrison. See you at the next Banquet for sure! Start over on the Nihilus threads and read EVERYTHING you possibly can. There's a ton of info out there and the more you read the better off you'll be. Then as always feel free to ask questions. If you ever need extra help, be sure to hit me up. Hi Sheri'! You would be the second Sinya in the 501st then. That is quite exciting. We also only have 2 Mother Talzin, but each of those three costumes are quite great. We'd love to help you as much as possible and transition you from Cadet to 501st Member as swiftly as possible. Glad to have you!
  17. Big post incoming, I've been the only one doing Admin duties for the site so I'm a little behind, sadly this is one of the areas I didn't get to... So let's welcome some people! Definitely under the actualy costume that you're making. If something needs to be moved, we can always do that too. If you need further help getting information on the costume, please contact me directly and I'll do anything I can to put you in contact with experts on that costume. Welcome Bulldog, I've gone ahead and updated your status to 501st Member, you should have better access now. We have some great Trayas so there is plenty of information out ther for you. if you ever need any help, don't hesitate to ask! That should be quite excellent to see James. Please be sure to post plenty of pictures, not only so we can help answer any questions you have better, but so that future costumers can see what you did and what you learned as you went along. Boom! I approved you as a 501st Member on the forum, you should have better access now. Glad to have you, if you ever need direct contact my e-mail/PM is always open and I tend to respond quite quickly.
  18. I think you're hitting the mark even better with these. Those lines are crisp and I think it's looking quite nice now, keep it up!
  19. One thing with painting is good use of edging. Rememeber that when you clunk things around, it's the high points that scrape. And the recesses are where you'll never quite clean all the gunk out.
  20. For Kyle and everyone else: I've had a chance to discuss some items with Kyle's command staff and have made some recommendations and possible solutions moving forward, but I want to be sure everyone is in agreement before I post something here. I think we not only have a fantastic representation of the costume here, but some darn talented artwork to boot. If we can come to an agreement on a few things, this may be able to serve as a great example to other of use of alternative materials. Stay tuned for more! Edit+Update: I got a super fast response and now you do too! The first concern with the material is the flexibility of what should be a rigid armor, so: In this case, I'd like to propose a possible compromise for Kyle. Let's see how much flex the costume actually has. Perhaps a demonstration of motion for the costume, to see what it does in motion? Something like bending over to shake hands with a child, reaching for things, ect. It might sound crazy, but without seeing it in motion I feel we might not have given it a proper test. Then, if it does flex, perhaps we can come up with some way to reinforce it, I'm not an expert in materials entirely, but I am an outside-the-box thinker. As for some minor spots like the ends of the claws displaying what definitely looks to be cell foam from cutting it: I do stand by the GML on the concerns here. My recommendation there is some sort of filler, again, I'm not sure what would best bond/fill foam adequately and THEN hold up to wear. To me that is simply a last step finishing touch that could be remedied (I am hoping). Pending both of these being remedied though, I believe the appearance of a rigid armor, even as a foam would be acceptable, again, it has to look like a hardened piece of protection. As a last note on my suggestion, I do really like what you're doing with your new chest piece. Whatever you decide, we're here to help you. Please post lots of pictures, and questions, and if the answers get delayed, please send a reminder, sometimes things to get lost in the shuffle.
  21. Hi Kyle, let me take some time and review your costume a little more. In the mean time, would you mind putting me in contact with your GML?
  22. Until someone builds a costume and supplies source material and a costume that meets our standards, we don't make costumes official. It's a cart and horse situation. Once someone builds something, decisions get made as to whether or not it can be considered. Generally speaking though, he's definitely a bad guy. In this case, Arcann's cybernetic arm would be my biggest area of concern, to do so accurately and still meet our standards. There is a line I am looking for in our guidelines but I am currently having a hard time finding it.
  23. Sorry your other post got missed. While they wouldn't be considered 100% accurate, I'd give them two thumbs up on an approval. You could always modify them later to make them more accurate to the screen references, but as people rarely see your feet, and what they do see is typically no higher than your ankle, it's usually a relatively low point of concern with this particular costume.
  24. Totally depends on the glove, and the phone. Looks like you're in the ballpark. If you have anyone who can take the photo for you, I'd recommend doing that, and have the lightsaber off with some good natural lighting. Then take front, both sides, and back (even though it's a cape, seeing how the capelet rests is important.) Probably minimal suggestions to be made, based on the initial glance here, you should be trooping officially in no time.
