Hello from Down Under (not Australia, the other Down Under)

Post by shavedwookie » Sun Mar 11, 2018 1:29 am

Hello,

My name is Sam, I have been a TK, TI (Reserve), and IG in Outpost 42: New Zealand Garrison since 2014.

I have been looking for inspiration for a new costume recently, but I have some physical limitations. I am 1.94m (6'4"), and a bit round. My TK doesn't quite fit at the moment, and I have looked for a character that can hide some curves - or has some curves.
Unfortunately I am too tall for Rancor keeper.

With all of this in mind, I will be building a Wampa!

I am planning on making this 2.6m (8'5"). Thankfully all of the conventions down here are in decent sized arenas, I should fit there.

I will be reading and bookmarking all of the Wampa goodness on these forums, and may be in touch with any of the other hairy goodnesses' out there.

Cheers

Sam

Yay! Welcome to the Blizzard Force forums Sam!

Although I'm not an expert in Wampas, let me know if I can help you in any way!

Hi Sam and welcome to the Blizzard Force detachment!

Wampas are very rare in the 501st, so nice choice :D

Maybe this thread is interesting to you: viewtopic.php?f=60&t=5413

Good luck with your build and stay frosty ;)

There's a good bit of reading there, I better get stuck in.
