  11. Whats popping from memphis!

    Hey Danny! Glad to hear there are more people from Memphis joining up! I'd also encourage you to come to one of the MSG-RRG prop parties! You can meet some really cool people that can help you with whichever costume you are doing. What costume are you doing?

  15. Hello From Memphis!

    Hey everyone! My name is Trey McGinnis and I currently live in Memphis. Over the past month or so my younger brother has gotten me involved in the 501st. He's a Halo costumer who made some 501st friends (from the Rancor Raiders) and has since turned to the dark side. I'm currently a junior in college studying electrical engineering, computer science, and math. I'm involved with a lot of stuff at my school, including a big service initiative that we do each year. I love that the 501st isn't just about having an awesome costume, you also do all sorts of service things with it! My younger brother (Brian) and I are working on ARC clone troopers to start with. He's got a good grasp of the costuming process from his experience as a Halo costumer, so I'm going to be learning a lot in the next year or so. We both have electronics experience, so we're going to have fun wiring up our helmets with fans, coms, rangefinders .etc. I'm already a member of the clone trooper forums, where I've been researching and reading up on vendors and such. I'm planning on going to the Riverkings game on the 23rd as a handler, so I look forward to meeting more 501st members in the area!
