We can have the members change in one of our dressing rooms. The wedding begins at 6pm so we want the troopers early to “check” to make sure the guests are authorized. Comments: This is a wedding with a reception to follow. The troopers do not need to stay the entire time for the reception. I am happy to donate money to a cause that the 501st supports. Referred by: I am a huge Star Wars fan. I do not know how I originally heard about the 501st but I think it was in a fan forum from theforce.net.

  7. Hello from Nashville!

    Welcome! What's your boyfriend building?
  8. Hey folks - I noticed that a bunch of you still have Photobucket links for your signatures etc... those are severely limited now unless you pay for a Pro subscription. My suggestion is using Imgur as a host - it's free and easy.
  9. forum name

    Hi there, sorry I'm just now seeing this but I can do it! It'll change your login name as well, so you'll have to log in with your new name next time.
  10. Hello and Stuff from La Vergne!

    Hey! Welcome! We spoke a bit on Facebook. You're looking for a Legacy TK like Jes Gistang, right? I know @Samfranchat has one of those and @galacticat is working on one - we're going to get back to it once the weather warms up a bit. Tagging them so they can help with sourcing of parts. Welcome to the MSG!
  11. First place to go is to the First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment forums at whitearmor.net. that's the Detachment for the classic Stormtrooper or TK. You will see other people's builds, techniques, and find all the info on reputable makers of everything you will need. Also take a look at the Costume Reference Library on 501st.com, that's the guide you'll be using to build your armor. Keep an eye on the boards here, as it gets nicer outside some of us will be hosting prop parties for building and socializing. Also you are welcome to come to an event and look at the armor up close. I'm in Mt Juliet but spend a lot of time in Hendersonville. Glad we got your access figured out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I have been seeing a lot of people coming around asking "where do I get armor??" - and while we do not exist as merely a purchase point for costumes, it's important to help prospective members not get ripped off by unscrupulous websites. So, here's a little guide. Feel free to add to it, and if a mod could sticky it that would be awesome! So, you want to buy a costume (armor or cloth)? Fantastic! It's an (expensive) but fun hobby that makes a lot of people smile! Stay away from places like: eBay stormtrooper-costume.com jedi-robe.com Star Fortress Productions other websites that claim to sell "501st quality" costumes Instead, check the following: Stormtrooper (TK): http://whitearmor.net Sandtrooper (TD): http://mepd.net Clonetrooper (CT/TC/CC): http://501stclonetroopers.com/forum/ Biker Scout (TB): http://bikerscout.net Sith Lord (Any of the Darths) (SL): http://501stsithlords.com Snowtrooper (TS): http://blizzardforce.com Bounty Hunters (Fetts, etc) (BH): http://thebhg.net Imperial Officers: http://imperialofficer.com There is a more comprehensive list at: http://www.501st.com...php#detachments The people on these forums can be a big help to get you on the right path - use these resources! Also, keep the following in mind: Cheap - High Quality - Fast You can only have two of these! Cheap and fast = low quality Cheap and High Quality = takes longer High Quality and Fast = not cheap Good luck!
  13. Heads up it's Census time. If you're a 501st member and you have never registered on the Legion boards you will need to do that to fill out the census. It is required by each member (you can do it!) Census can be completed at: https://www.501st.com/memberDB/census.php Please note that Dragon Con does not count as an official troop unless you volunteered to work the table or marched in the parade as part of the 501st. If you're seeing this post and not the one in the 501st Only section, that means I haven't heard from you to get your access sorted - shoot me a PM if you're an official member and you're missing access to the rest of the MSG boards.
