I am a 1st generation fan (meaning I saw the original trilogy in theatres when it was first released. I have spent a lifetime following the SWU which has greatly influenced who I am today. I started with my first costume in 2010, completed it and got registered in the 501st in 2012. Since then I have build over 80 costumes for myself and others, actively engaged in prop making first as a hobby and then as a community driven project to support fellow troopers.
Although originally from Belgium I live in China for the last two decades where I have my production studio and from where I run RED2 Ltd. (HK)
In my spare time I do commission work building full costumes for people that feel they do not have the time or the skills but want to join the club. I also remind myself that I was once a visual designer by playing with graphic design — mostly on the SW Theme of course.
