    I first read WoT when introduced by a friend in the Marine Corps. Now, I've been through most of the books twice, all of them once, and I'm working my way through them again. I just can't stay away from a good book. I am a member of the Star Wars fan community and an administrator for one of the fan groups, and reading these books again got me interested in seeing if there was a WoT community, as well. I am also a casual cosplayer and have fun attending conventions and meeting people who love the same things I do. I look forward to being a part of this community.

    Welcome to TV, Alenya! :joy I like to cosplay sometimes, too, but time and anxiety have been...annoying as of late. :p

    Welcome! I sew, not so much cosplaying specific characters, but if you ever need sewing help, we're down in Hand Crafts!

    Welcome to Tar Valon!

    I'm a big Star Wars fan as well, and at one pointed comissioned a proper Jedi Knight outfit to cosplay with (wanted to join the Rebel Legion), but the seamstress totally botched every part of the costume, and it was a thousand bucks down the drain :( Now I have a couple of inexpensive cosplays, like Matt Smith's Dr. Who, and Christian Slater's Mr. Robot. For this con season I'm now putting together a Captain Disillusion cosplay -- a little obscure, but awesome none the less :p

    I'm glad you found your way to us! Now just relax and let the brainwashing settle in [​IMG]

    Anujun, I went to Dragon Con last year as Golden Age Flash and randomly met the actor who played him on TV in an elevator. You never know who will recognize your costume. For Star Wars, I went with the Mandalorian Mercs. Inexpensive and customization options galore.
    Roheryn Sedai, I will definitely be checking out the hand crafts!

    Welcome, Alenya! So glad you're here. :D

    It's been years since I've been to DragonCon and I alternate between relief and sadness about that. :lol

    Thank you, Mother! This might be our last Dragon Con for a bit. 6 years in a row is enough for me.
