Hi from Kankakee Illinois but I'm always in Aurora. Slimer, don't you live in Aurora. I would love to see your packs. I hear so much about them.

I actually brought one of the kits to comic shop that Jimmy works at if anyone is interested in checking it out or even purchasing it. Jimmy is looking at finding a date where we can all meet up sometime at the bowling alley next door. I will see about finding a day where I can get my complete pack on display at his shop once its done after the new year.

Hey all!
I guess I'm sort of a newbie, either that or I'm just really slow! I've been at this for about two years and still no pack! :sigh:
Anyway, I'm in Tinley Park IL. Right next to Orland Park.
I'd love to attend something, anything... would love to see some fan made packs in person and would love to prove to myself that I'm not the only crazy f***er spending grocery money on parts from the 80's that nobody has heard of ;)

Acen = Anime Central. It's a 24 hour con for anime and Japanese media. It's usually held at the Stevens convention center in Rosemont. If you've been to Wizard World Chicago, it's the same convention center.

I am new here but I have wanted to be a buster for a long time. I have most of my uniform complete and many of the parts for the pack just have not had the time to put it together. I hope to meet some fellow busters at wizard world.

Another IL person here, were else but the Windy City.

Haven't been as elaborate as most have with outfits or hardware, but don't get me wrong, my imaginations flowing and I got some neat ideas. Most of the time my fandom would only consist of me watching the movies and cartoons for the billionth time and ripping through the games like nobodies business, but I hope to have some fun with this in the near future as I plan to make a uniform and some hardware.

In the works(on paper mostly), is I plan to convert a sprayer and some other land scaping equipment into a slime thrower(or atleast make it look like it). I got enough wires and wrecked gadgets around to make a good many things out of.

BTW, out of curiousity how many other's here try ghost hunting??

Checking in with you from Crawford County Illinois.
Hey SpanglerThe Wrangler.... I have done that. Still have a few pieces of equipment, but I had to sell my EMF. Sucked, but bills need paid...

We’re going to throw a huge bash at my house. You can't pass up the opportunity of Halloween falling on Saturday and not throw a huge party!!! It's a better chance for everyone to get smashed and just crash at your place. lol

This is true! You're not too far from me. I'm near Bloomington.

This will be our daughter's first Halloween, so we're pretty excited. Granted, she'll be too young for trick or treating, but it'll still be fun.
