My name's "Ed" as well! I'm from North Bay, Ontario, Canada. The Colonial Warrior is my first costume because I wanted to have something that was simple, inexpensive, and not very common. Hahaha.... I'm finding out the "inexpensive" idea hasn't worked out as well as I'd hoped and I still have to buy a proper pair of boots! Occasionally get tired of the kids at the cons saying, "Nice! Good one, Mal--a browncoat!"
I was at Shore Leave many years ago, A group of Warriors from the then Battlestar Pheonix were there in non cannon BSG Uniforms they had designed. Charlie, Jasmine and Brian.... Well, Charlie's uniform was the one that was non-cannon. It was a Warriors Uniform in Charcoal Grey with a Black Jacket with Grey Piping/trim. It was their version of being cut off from the fleet, no supplies and making uniforms for their battlestar kind of thing. While standing there talking, people walked up and went on and on about how great a costume he had. Jasmine was wearing the blue bridge uniform. They finished the praises about how great his costume was with, Best Han Solo I have ever seen. .... The Look on Charlie's face was priceless. Almost as priceless as the look on Jasmine's face when he looked at her and told her it made her either Leia or Chewy....
Hi there, just got access to the board today. A big hi to everyone on here....my name is Chris and I'm from the UK. I'm a huge original series BSG fan and recently got hold of a Warriors uniform, man I love it!!! I always thought that the uniform was one of the coolest things I'd seen and still do. I've got the full kit except for the boots.....I wish the full bores were easier to come by. I may have a go at adapting a similar style boot in the mean time......
Anyway, looking forward to chatting with you all on here. When I heard about this forum, I just had to join!
p.s where do I find the option for uploading an avatar for myself?

Hello everyone. I see a few familiar faces here! But watch out for that Skyler fella. He's trouble!
I'm Lisa Jackson aka Captain Logan over on the Battlestar Callisto. Been RPGing with those fine folks for at least five, maybe six years. Wow, has it been that long?
I've wanted a classic Warrior's uniform since I was a kid. Always been my dream costume. I am so glad to see this group and hope that joining will give me the impetus to get off my butt and finally make that dream a reality.
I've been costuming for years and been part of many groups. Not an official member of the Rebel Legion or 501st, but have done events/cons with many of them. At one point, I did Mara Jade for a 501st event. Other costumes I've done are more general from the Star Trek, Star Wars, Farscape, Buffy universes. Oh and I'm Captain of my own pirate ship as part of The Buccaneers of the Atlantic Coast.
