    Hello everyone my name is Bob Holland. I've been around the 501st in my area for a few years now and finally finished my costume. I live in Louisville KY so I've been around the Derby City Squad pretty much since their inception. I'm extra stoked to get to bring Jawazilla to life and bring joy to the masses.

    Greg and Jim brought me here, blame them. Any who, I just moved to Knoxville from NY, was working on my armor with the ECG up there. Completed my DT with Greg down here, went on my first troop with Greg at Kingsport Conapalooza last month. Looking to hopefully submit soon, just fixing a few things beforehand. Hope to meet everyone soon.

    Hello everyone! My name is Aurore Bivins and I just received my ID number, 64808! I live in Knoxville, TN and joining the 501st has been a goal of mine for 15 years. Now that my ANH Staff Officer has been approved, I'm going to get started on my Kessel Run Qi'ra. It's a huge honor to be a member of this group. I want to thank everyone at the booth at Fanboy Expo for being so encouraging and helpful when it came to submitting my application and making me feel welcome. I would appreciate full access to the boards so I can start participating.

    Hey guys! I'm Laryssa, and I recently got my RL stripes in the Corellian Base end of January. Not in the 501st obviously, but Jyn may have a forged scan doc lying around that may say otherwise... I've known of the 501st/RL for years and have always wanted to join, but couldn't decide on a character until Rogue One. I've gotten to meet a handful of you all at a few events the past month or so -- it has been awesome, and everyone's been so welcoming! I'm looking forward to getting out there and doing more

    Hey guys and gals. Several of you know me in the Nashville area, as I have been tagging along to events and such for the last 2 or so years, but I will follow instructions and introduce myself. I'm Becki Moore. I am part of several costuming groups in the Nashville area including but not limited to the TN Ghostbusters, Cosplay Collective, Music City Order of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Nashville Avengers and so on. I'm looking forward to my next troop. See you all soon!

    Hey all! My name is Joe and I'm an active BB8 builder and have tagged along with a few R2 builders to a local con(fandom fest). I'm looking to get involved so I can bring my BB8 to some future events. Note: BB8 in the photo IS mine, R2 is not. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi, My name is Aaron Paige, just got accepted into the 501st and MidSouth Garrison last night. I am from Cincinnati, Ohio and learned about MidSouth Garrison from my girlfriend who is a member here as well. I am requesting access to the message boards here to be able to get the most out of my membership through interacting with fellow members and staying informed on events and happenings as well as any other info surrounding the garrison and 501st in general. Excited to be a part of the group and looking forward to it all!

    Your real, full name Ronald Barnes - I go by Ron Any 501st, Rebel Legion or other costuming group affliation(s) I am a new member over at Rebel Legion. I have a generic style Jedi outfit inspired by Obi-Wan. I do have a Phantom Menace hilt Saber with a blue blade. I am also going to attend events with Cosplay Collective. Your location Middle Tennessee near Portland How you learned about us I'm not sure actually. I think a stumbled across it a few years ago. It was only this year that myself and XxjeffxX (501st and Rebel Legion approved member) got into getting/building CRL approved outfits. Why you are requesting access to the MidSouth Garrison discussion board I am seeking Advice, Guidance, and Education on a Royal Guard built, either ROTJ or AOTC, they seem to be the same for the color of the boots. Once this is built I will submit for approval and then be able to troop in either a Dark Side or Light Side character. I am looking at two different companies to purchase the soft parts from Here and Here . Both companies claim to be CRL compliant however I would like to know that from the 501st directly. I read somewhere that Rubies Royal Guard helm is 501st approved but QC is questionable sometimes. Korbanth seems to be on the higher quality side but both companies look fantastic. I know there is an Emperor and Darth Vader that attends functions, might be fitting to add a Royal Guard member to complete the scenes from the movies during a Troop. Besides that, the Royal Guard, behind Darth Vader, have such a presence in the movies even though they are barely seen. They have been my favorite characters other than Darth from the Dark Side. Thanks, Ron

    Congrats on the RL approval and welcome to your local 501st garrison. Most events posted here at the MSG are opened to RL members as well, so once you can view events, don't hesitate to sign up for any that you'd like to troop. The more, the merrier.

    It has been a treat reading all I can about the 501st but now I want to be a part of it. I am putting together a Krennic uniform and can't wait to have some Death troopers behind me. Lol

    Krista, we receive event request all the time, so by then, we might have something in the Franklin area. I'm also certain we could arrange something in the Franklin or Cool Springs area for that weekend if you and Sean wanted to meet some of the locals. There are a handful of troopers local to Franklin, TN (not to mention Nashville).

    Hello, Jason! For $2,000 you can probably get one premade, but you can build yourself for way below that and there are a lot of people who can help you. If you haven't already, sign up on http://www.whitearmor.net/forum/, which is the 501st Stormtrooper detachment. They offer a lot of tips and resources to help you get started. Definitely avoid most armor you may see sold on eBay. Welcome!
