  2. Hello everyone, we made it

    Now that you have arrived, I think you just need to transfer from Arizona DSG to MidSouth Garrison and you'll be set. If you haven't already done so, you might want to let Arizona DSG know you've moved here, and I think between the Arizona and MidSouth garrisons, "your training will be complete!" Welcome and "We would be honored if you would join us." We have events in Middle TN posted in the even sections for the Music City Squad (Greater Nashville area) and general MidSouth Garrison (surrounding areas) sub-threads.... once you get access. But we also have a lot of events in the Memphis, Knoxville, and Chattanooga areas as well, so if you can make it to those parts of TN, don't forget to look at those event sections as well.

  22. Hello from a Rebel Friend!

    Hi guys! My name is Kathy Polumbo and I’m a member of the Rebel Legion (same username, lookingglasscosplay, on those forums). I have one approved costume (Jakku Rey) with another one currently pending approval (Hero/Battle Rey). I’ve been trooping with you guys a lot so I wanted to come say hi and was hoping to get access to your event forums to stay in the loop for troops! I live in Murfreesboro. I’ve also been seriously considering doing a Jawa build at some point and going to duel approval with that one so I can become an official member with you guys as well.

  24. Hello!! New person here

    Welcome!!! You have a lot of great advice here already! To give you another idea - another budget friendly option to get your foot in the door is Imperial Bridge Crew: https://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:IC_imperial_bridge_crew The jumpsuit you can get from Cosplaysky (triple check their size chart with your measurements). It might be a little slow/dicey getting stuff from them at the moment as they are based in China, but their suit requires just a few easy mods, such as opening up the left arm compad section (I can explain how to do that if you choose to do this) Then, it's the boots, belt, and hat. The belt can be made for around $30, or bought for $50-$60. Boots, you can get used off of eBay or Poshmark. Hat- I got mine for around $45 on Etsy. This is also the base for several other costumes: TIE Reserve, TIE Pilot, and I think a few others others.
  25. Hello!! New person here

    Welcome, I am the Squad Leader for Knox Eisley Squad, which covers East TN. For the medic trooper I would do a ANH stunt suit like Matt suggested. If you want to do an officer I would highly suggest going through https://www.wampawear.com/product-category/uniform/ they are going to give you the best suit for the money. There are some cheaper options out there but they aren't very good, and some more expensive options that are more accurate but 2-5 times more expensive. If you have any specific questions about any of these costumes feel free to PM me here or email me at Mau5trooper@gmail.com
