Hi my name is Wes and I am in the St. Louis area. A friend of mine, who is becoming a member of the 501st in Australia, had encouraged me to check out the Rebel Legion since I am such a huge SW fan. I have read through the FAQ's and costuming standards and I want to get involved but where do I begin? I'm not very proficient with sewing but have used a sewing machine before. Are there any members in my area that could be a guide to help me get started? I am willing to become a "handler" to get my foot in the door and meet the members. Thank you for any help you can provide. MTFBWY
Welcome to the Rebel Legion boards! I'm the commanding officer (leader) of Dantooine Base and live here in St. Louis as well. Joining the boards here and looking over the CRLs is a great start. We'd be happy to help you in anyway we can to get what you need. Picking a costume isn't always easy if there are several you like or if the creation of one seems beyond your means/ability.
The first part of the year is a bit slow, but things will start to pick up. I'd be happy to have you as a handler at any of the events we post up here on the board you would like to attend. That is definitely a great way to see how things run and get to know other members locally.
If there is anything I can help with at all feel free to contact me. You can do so here via a post or private message, phone call, or email
