Default Blackstar Squadron: Battlestar Galactica costuming group.

Greetings fellow Warriors!

As some of you may already know, Reaper, Kronus, Mieal Deneb, Bradley Fett, and myself have all been working on launching a Battlestar Galactica costuming club. I wanted to open up a discussion here about our progress so far and get some ideas.

The first draft of the club charter is nearly finished.
We're working hard to build this thing on a strong foundation. We've also come up with a plan for the organizational break down of the club. All of this will be available for you to see in the near future barring unseen complications.

We have a good idea of what sections we will have within the boards and we've been gathering resources to help make putting together a costume a bit easier. some of that has gone on here like in the gun belt thread.

What we're planning is pretty big. Global in fact. There are already a number of people interested from around the world.

Here is the mission statement...

The mission of Black Star Squadron is to create and support a community as the public face of Classic Battlestar Galactica fandom. Through costuming, public appearances, promotion, and charity, our aim is to celebrate, represent and support the original vision and themes of Battlestar Galactica past, present and future.

We're hoping you'll join us for the ride! If you would like to help out and are able, our immediate need (other than finishing our costumes) is some art work for a web page (even just an index page that links to the discussion board we're setting up).

We eventually want to have a page similar to the Rebel Legion and the 501st with profile pages and pictures for all our Warriors.

We're lucky enough to have some very experienced members on board with this sort of thing already and we'd love more!

So lets open up some discussion about this! What do you all think? What would you like to see, or even do within a group like this? Charity events, fan films, conventions, parties? Its going to be a lot of fun!
