Hello, my name is Charlie. I just signed up for the forums. I don't have a lightsaber or a costume yet. I feel like I need more information before I can get started. I looked at the costume standards, but there aren't nearly enough visuals for me. I also looked at the acceptable lightsaber specs, but are there certain lightsaber merchants that anyone can point me towards that meet the standards? I feel like I need more guidance lol.
Anyways, I'm 29. I'm agender and my pronouns are they/them/their. I want to be a Sith, no question. Looking forward to getting started!

Welcome Charlie,

Welcome to the Saber Guild forums. This is your first step into a larger world! 

My name is Paul, I am located in Central Texas (Austin) and I am Saber Guild's Global Membership Director. I oversee costuming and membership.

Costume information is available throughout our website and forums. the expanded standards are located here and will be updated in the upcoming months to have more pictures and clarification. The approvable colors for each type of costume is located here in our pantone chart. And finally you can reference some of the newer costumes, located here on our membership directory page. I would suggest looking at the newer costumes with numbers over SG-175 as some of the older costumes may have original pictures that were not up to the current standards. 

As far as lightsabers, there are many brands we have validated as combat ready lightsabers. The most common are Ultrsasabers, SaberForge, Vader's Vault, Genesis Custom Sabers and a few custom saber makers. Kyberlight is currently not an approvable lightsaber brand.

Since you are in Washington, you may reach out to the Jet City Temple on their Facebook page or you can email them at Their Local Director Kay, and the Costume Consular, Amanda, can direct you further and can assist with the questions about the design and submission of your costume or which lightsaber can best fit your budget. These are very experienced individuals and are a valuable resource in your area. 

Again, welcome to the Saber Guild forums. We hope to hear from you soon!

Hi Charlie and welcome! We recommend visiting class as a first step. We welcome new folks. We meet every Thursday evening in Seattle. This week we'll have many folks bringing their costumes to make an audition tape. It's not a typical class but it's a good time to ask questions.

Our Director is actually Chrissy, Kay is our Assistant Director, Amanda and the whole team will be happy to help out. Come by and get to know us!

Best Regards,

Thank you both for replying! 
Paul that was really helpful information. That link to more detail about costumes was really helpful and so was know some saber sellers that are approved.
Anne thanks for the welcome! Unfortunately I didn't realize that the meetings would be in Seattle. Making it all the way to Seattle on even a semi-regular basis is simply not possible for me :/ I was rather hoping there might be more local gatherings, but I understand if that's not possible. I expect this to be an extremely slow process for me anyways, due to extreme financial limitations as well as just only being able to handle only so much at once. So I guess we'll see.
