New GML/GWL introduction

Post by Duncs » Sun Apr 01, 2018 10:13 am

Hello Knightfall Troopers,

Just a little about myself and how I will be taking the GML role on from here.
I look forward to keeping Tom's exceptional standards in place and growing our Garrsion, looking the best we can.

I joined and approved in 2010 with my Scout Trooper. I have had a few other costumes approved since.

I have been a GML/GWL before with TAG though things have slightly changed over the years so will need a little refresh catch up on the process.

So to start off, I will be enforcing a degree of old school advice.  The 3 Rs.

RESEARCH, RESEARCH and RESEARCH.

Sign up to your relevant Detachment, look at your CRLs and start a build thread.

It doesn't have to be extremely in depth but it helps identify issues before you think you are done with your costume and submit pictures only to be knocked back.

There is no stupid questions but there is stupid answers, i will give them, when nessasary. You have been warned.

I do not spoon feed, except occasionally my daughter.

I am not the "Fun police" but i will always be watching the state and quality of your costumes.
Newly approved and old.
If you look like a bag of shit, ill tell you so, then do my upmost to try and fix it with you.

I am a true believer of the phrase,
"Do not choose the costume, let the costume choose you."
Meaning, to be widely accepted in the public and Legion, you need to look the part in your kit.
We have all heard the phrase "Arn't you too short for a Stormtrooper?"
While there is no discrimination on race, age, height, width or depth in the Legion, it helps to pick a costume that will suit your body type.
Building, aproval and trooping will all come easier in a kit that suits you.

At the end of the day though you need to do what makes you happy, but my advice still stands.

Building a new kit can be very exciting and mind consuming.
There is nothing else you really think about or would rather be doing.
So you become impatient.
When you have a question, you need it answered NOW, so you can keep building!
But guess what?

REAL LIFE COMES FIRST.
FAMILY, FRIENDS, YOUR JOB, ALL COME BEFORE THE LEGION.

It is very easy to get caught up in your build, in Legion stuff, but remember what needs to be there if there was no Legion.

That goes for those in command too.

If they dont get back to you right away, they are most likely dealing with more important stuff. They will get to you when they can.

Lastly, I joined a Star Wars screen acurate costuming club.
Thats what we are. First and foremost. We build these costumes to look as accurate as possible.
Thats how i treat the approval process.
If you dont look the goods, you will be knocked back.
Dont take it personally.

Thats about it, looking forward to helping our Garrsion grow and look our best.

Cheers

Duncs TK 8503
