  3. 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
  4. Anybody in the Tri-Cities

    Welcome If Wampa Wear is sold out you can get a grey set of coveralls I think from Redcap. they aren't to hard to modify add some pockets on the sleeve and change the collar, add some cogs and you're basically done. Just something to think about, if you do the same costume but in black, it can be upgrade and changed around to do like 5 different suits in the legion. The grey could also be used to do an AT-ST driver if you stick with it.

  7. Newbie in Knoxville

    Welcome. I am the Squad Leader for Knox Eisley Squad. If you have any more questions feel free to ask. admittedly these threads aren't viewed super frequently, if you want you can email me at Mau5trooper@gmail.com or PM me on here. My advice as a former GML as for the antennae, if it is not in the CRL i would leave it off if possible, and then add it on if you want after you are approved, just to be safe. If it's already attached you can try submitting with it on just don't hate on the GML if they bring it up as a revision Best bet is to follow the CRL until approved, better to not risk it, especially if its something that can easily be added on if you want it later.

This will be similar to what we did last year only improved and kicked up a bit to be more of a tailgate type party..... We will do a pregame type appearance to bring out the team. Details are being worked out now but they want to do something a little different this year. We will float around and do photos with fans and participating in games or activities during the game / time outs/ and half time. In addition to the event the University is considering filming a few commercial spots advertising this night. A date or time for filming has not been determined as of yet but they have asked for Vader Stormtroopers other cannon characters etc to be a part of the filming. this will require meeting at freedom Hall Civic center on a date to be determined and filming some TV spot advertisment. This may include some acting/action shots. Once we have more details on what characters will be needed, we will post a sign up list including dates and times for the shoot. Also, as of now, Albin Johnson and R2KT asked to be penciled in for this event. So it's looking like they will be possibly joining and trooping with us!!

This year we've decided to partner with Children's Hospital to raise money. We have numerous cosplayers in attendance, specialty vehicles and food. Referred by: A Cosplay member who is attending this event. My name is John R. Hickman, and I am one of the managers of the UGO located at 4225 Chapman Highway. I am contacting you to see if you'd be interested in attending an event I'm hosting on Saturday September 28, 2019 from 9am-1pm. This event will be held at our location on Chapman Highway in Knoxville Tennessee 37290. This event is held annually to give back to our great community, but this year is even more important because I have partnered with the Children's Hospital to help raise money for the kids. I have numerous things going on during this event. I have several local cosplayers dressed up to the kids favorite characters, I have local mascots including Chilly the Icebear, Homer the Hound, Shoney Bear, Andy the Armadillo, Sharky, Mayfield Cow and hoping for other mascots to join in. We have East Tennessee Tribute Rides on board with the General Lee, Roscoes Cop Car, Ecto 1, Mystery Machine and they'll be unveiling a new ride exclusively at this event. I have a few food vendors and local businesses setting up as well, along with some local Churches. I have 2 wonderful K9's coming with their amazing handler. We will be selling items, collecting donations and doing silent auctions to help raise money for them. My vendors will also be donating a portion of their proceeds to the cause. I am waiting to see if a few other organizations get back with me to jump on board as well. As you can see with all planned that's why it's called EPIC!!! Adding Darth Vader and some Storm Troopers to this event would be the cherry on top Feel free to email me back or give me a call on my cell 865-242-3509.
