  5. Smoky Mountain Fan Fest

Gatlinburg is still very close to our home, and we love that. The convention center is also very large, and gives us room to do things we really need to do! We will have over 100 vendor spaces, we will have a better stage area for our charity auction and our cosplay contest, we will have professional photo ops, we will have Q&A panels, plenty of bathrooms, more space for our guests to feel comfortable, and most importantly... air conditioning! This convention will be the first of its kind in Gatlinburg, and they have already been very welcoming to us. They want us to grow with them, and with the city. We have already locked in future years with them.. The future for Smoky Mountain Fan Fest is bright! For those of you who travel in for conventions, you won’t find a better destination vacation than Gatlinburg!

  11. Boo! at Zoo Knoxville

    Shine or dirty up that armor! Just got the word from Zoo Knoxville, we are on for Boo! at the Zoo this year. They intend to rope off areas for costumed guests but since we are usually fully covered I am going to see if it required for everyone to remain behind it. My first goal is always our safety but if anyone feels comfortable with being more mobile I will see what we can do. This will be our first official troop since the Ice Bears in February, will be good to see a lot of you all again! The event will be available every Thursday through Sunday until the 25th. Please post dates you wish to attend so that can be communicated with the staff organizer at the zoo.

  14. 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
  15. 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.
